The SPCA of Westchester on North State Road in Briarcliff is looking to raise money to help a rescued cat get the surgery it needs.
Here is their plea for Ricola (shown to the right):
This lovely kitten was rushed to the SPCA by volunteer Diane Balicki and her SPCA adoptee, Bodee. Severely injured and in pain, Ricola had probably been struck by a car, and was lucky that Diane and Bodee had found her while on a walk. Ricola has undergone surgery here at our Simpson Clinic to repair a traumatic hernia, but her journey isn’t finished yet. Her badly injured leg requires orthopedic surgery to fix a humeral fracture. Ricola is one of the many strays brought to the SPCA with serious medical issues. We are dedicated to helping all of these animals recover so that they can have a second chance! Often, we seek the expertise of veterinary specialists who can provide the type of help with complicated injuries that we cannot provide. Emergency and specialty veterinary care is costly, and it is difficult to predict the amount of surgeries and specialized care that our shelter animals will need from year to year. Please help us heal Ricola and get her on the road to a sound recovery so that she might know the love and warmth of a real home.
