 Meet... Ghost, Sam and Mister - They need your donations!






Ghost was left at the back door of the shelter.  This once loved kitty is neutered and approximately 7 years old. Poor Ghost has severe ear mites, which have caused the wounds on his head.  His continuously scratching certainly has not help the irritation.  His right eye is black, caused by Melanoma, which thankfully, is a slow moving cancer.  His eye does need to be removed which can be quite costly. 

So what is our plan to help Ghost?  We are getting blood work done to make sure there is nothing else medically wrong with him and if he is clean, then his eye will be removed. What is this going to cost?  The cost for Ghost’s medical care is estimated to run between $500 to $1,200.

Sam is an approximately 3 years old. He was found in a backyard in Omemee with his leg severely wounded.  Most of his skin and fur is missing and his muscle and tendons are exposed. Originally, it was thought the leg could be saved with cleaning and antibiotics, which would have been a very happy and favourable outcome, however, nothing seems to be that easy. Sadly, the damage is just too much and his leg will need to be amputated. Sam had a surgery date, but after his blood work was done, he was found to be too anemic to have the surgery.  Sweet Sam is having blood tests every couple days to check on his levels so we can get him into surgery as soon as possible. 

So, how much will this life changing surgery cost?  Sam’s operation will be approximately $1,600, which includes his frequent blood tests.

Just the other day, Mister, came into our care.  He needs his left eye removed.  We will have more information on this sweet guy in the next week or so. 

If you can donate, please contact us today at 705-878-4618 or donate on this webpage by choosing the 'Help both Sam & Ghost!' fund.  Don't worry, Mister will benefit from this fund too!
