Story

Murray was left for dead as the victim of a hit and run car accident. She was a stray cat, so she had no owner to care for her. A woman saw the accident and scooped up the terrified kitten. She had every intention of taking care of Murray for the rest of her life and paying whatever she needed to keep her alive. But she was in for a shock when she quickly maxed out a care credit at the regular vet, only to be sent to a specializing hospital.


Murray's savior was heartbroken. She had no idea that Murray's injuries were so extream or that the cost would top over $7000. She thought she was going to have to surrender Murray or have her euthanized. She knew that Murray was meant to be with her, and meant to be healthy, but she had no idea how to save her. That's when she reached out to For the Love of Alex. She asked for the support of donors like you to "please save Murray."


In the end, Murray needed treatment for a broken wrist, two broken legs, and a shattered pelvis. She needed extensive treatment and surgery to survive. Her pelvis was so bad, that she may need future surgery.


Right now, Murray is stable, but she needs your help to pay for her expensive treatment and ensure that she can get future surgery on her pelvis if she needs it.


The veterinary hospital that treated Murray gave For the Love of Alex a very generous Nonprofit discount, so her care would have cost almost $10,000. Instead, the final total came to just over $7,000.

It is still a shock to us and Murray's family that she had to have her leg removed. We do not enter lightly into any amputation, but in this case it was best for Murray. Her leg has been surgically removed and she is home, resting. She already seems to be feeling much better and getting her personality back. Thank you all for your prayers and support. Any help in raising the $2000 needed for this emergency surgery is appreciated.
