SPCA seeks public support for injured kitten

The SPCA in Chilliwack is hoping to raise $1,000 for eye surgery on an abandoned kitten found near Vedder Road.

A 10-week-old kitten found near Vedder Road in Chilliwack is in need of eye surgery.

The SPCA in Chilliwack is hoping to raise $1,000 for eye surgery on an abandoned kitten found near Vedder Road.

The 10-week-old kitten, who has been named ‘Angel’ by SPCA staff, requires a surgery known as enucleation, which removes the eye but leaves the eye muscles and remaining orbital contents intact. This type of ocular surgery is performed in cases where the eye has suffered severe trauma.

“We don’t know how Angel sustained the injury but we would like to get her treatment as quickly as possible,” says Ivanna Ferris, manager of the Chilliwack SPCA. “She is a sweet, gentle kitten who seems to know that we are trying to help her. We are hoping members of the public will help us with the cost of surgery, which is estimated at nearly $1,000.” The SPCA will care for Angel during her recovery and will find a loving home for her once she is well enough for adoption.

Donations for Angel and other animals in need at the Chilliwack SPCA can be made at the branch at 6797 Hopedale Road, Box 142, Chilliwack, B.C., V2P 6H7, by calling 604-823-6612, or online at spca.bc.ca/support.
