Charities unite to fund surgery for injured kitten

A member of the public found the four-month old female kitten in the town with a badly damaged leg that required urgent amputation to protect her.

In total, £600 was needed to fund the surgery - and, with no known owner, two RSPCA branches in north Wales and the Cats Protection charity raised the necessary funds.

This goes to show what can be achieved for an animal in need, where RSPCA branches, Cats Protection branches, vets and the public all work together for the good of an animal.

The kitten has since recovered well from the surgery and she is continuing her rehabilitation process with a foster carer, who has named her Blaze.

Thankfully, a member of the public found Blaze, who must have been through a horrendous ordeal for her leg to be in such a desperate state. It was fantastic to be able work with a neighbouring RSPCA branch, and Cats Protection Colwyn & District, with us all coming together to help this kitten, who was in such urgent need of support. Helping Blaze is another example of the work we are doing each and every day to further animal welfare in the local community.
