Juno needs your help to repair her diaphragm!
When Juno was brought to a shelter as a stray to be spayed, she went into respiratory distress. X-rays showed a diaphragmatic hernia, meaning some of her organs (stomach, liver, intestines) which should be confined to her abdomen are up in her chest cavity. This puts too much pressure on her lungs, preventing them from fully inflating and making her breathing labored. The abdominal tissues may irritate the heart muscle, which causes abnormal heart rhythms, and fluid may leak into her chest cavity, further complicating and worsening heart and lung function.
Juno needs surgery to repair the tear in her diaphragm, and her organs will then be positioned correctly. A specialty surgeon has taken on her complex case, but the cost is high.
You can help repair Juno's diaphragm so she can breathe deeply and comfortably, process nutrients more efficiently and put on some much-needed weight. Your gift will directly cover her surgery and intensive care. This kitty is well-socialized so she must have had a home before, and we want to help her find a new one!
Help us meet our goal of $4,000 to heal Juno so this happy-go-lucky lap cat can find the perfect home for greeting new people and cats with purrs and head bumps, watching the computer screen and being her complete charming self. Funds raised over the goal amount will go to help provide medical care to other shelter pets.
