Saving Ona {Emergency Dental Surgery}

We just found out that Ona needs to have urgent dental work. After an accident that resulted in a broken fang, she's developed a severe infection in her mouth. Due to the potential to spread to her jaw, and the health of a few of her teeth, Ona requires costly dental surgery as soon as possible. The cost of the removal is upwards of $2500 {not including pre / post op appointments, medication and taxes}. Like any surgery, there is always a potential for complications which could increase the cost. 

We are stuck in this horrifying situation of not being able to afford to fix the problem alone and face the very heartbreaking reality that, without help, we will have to put Ona down. We are desperate to save the life of this beautiful and loving {and quirky as fork} cat. We really need assistance. 

She needs this surgery now, so every little bit helps. Please if you can, any contribution you can make towards Ona's dental bill is immensely appreciated. Just look at her little squish face. She's our world.

Without this, we lose Ona.

Ona came into our little family by chance and has brought us an abundance of joy and unconditional love. It was a stroke of luck that she found her way into our lives - wandering around, just skin and bones in the woods. After being fed regularly by Andrew up at the family cottage, she became a regular visitor and fast friend. With cooler weather approaching and not wanting her to be left to face the harsh Ontario winter alone, she was going to be a well-loved farm cat...but she ended up quickly deciding that she wanted to be a beloved part of our family instead. This sweet feline has been right there by our sides through so much...and now it's our turn to do our very best to help her in her time of need. 

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and for your generosity!
Additional funds will be used for her post-op vet visit and medication. Beyond that, any left over will be donated to Community Alley Trappers ~ a wonderful non-profit dedicated to improving the lives of abused, abandoned, feral, stray, and injured cats in the Ottawa and surrounding areas.
