Some monster brutally tortured an innocent cat and left him to die. Someone found the badly abused cat and brought him to an animal control facility. The cat was in desperate need of medical care.
Humane Society of Bay County stepped up to save the injured cat. Charger had a broken jaw and crushed bones in his face—specifically around his nose and his left eye socket. After examining Charger’s injuries, it seemed that he had experienced some blunt force trauma to his head, likely purposely inflicted.
After multiple surgeries, Charger is starting to feel better. He still has a few more surgeries to go to repair the damage to his face. Miraculously, he is expected to make a full recovery. Even though Charger has a right to never trust humans again, he is a friendly cat that loves attention. Charger is now quite the charmer and already has an adopter!
Thanks to money saved from donated food from GreaterGood.org’s Rescue Bank program, the Humane Society of Bay County can shift funds to provide medical care to injured and sick animals like Charger.
The goal is to donate pet food to shelters, rescues and sanctuaries to help feed the animals until they find forever homes.
Pet food is the number one expense for rescues, usually taking their whole budget. This leaves little or nothing for vet care and treatment. Rescue Bank steps up to help by sending donated food to rescues in need. The money a rescue or shelter saves on buying food can then be used for vet care, vaccinations, adoptions and much more.
“Rescue Bank has allowed our organization to focus more of our budget on medical costs rather than food costs,” Charger’s rescuers confirmed. “This has made it possible for us to rescue more animals from local kill shelters.”
