There are only 3 days left to raise the funds needed for Rigby's specialized surgery. Please donate now!

Our sincere thanks if you have already donated to fund Rocky's surgery. If not, please consider donating today so Rigby can receive the critical surgery he needs.  

Rocky is scheduled for his liver tumor removal surgery on Tuesday, August 30, 2016



BACKGROUND:  
Rigby is a 9 year old declawed senior that was brought to CCS when he began acting aggressively towards the cats in his home. Rigby had a tough time when he arrived at the shelter; he was very shy and reclusive. It took several weeks until he felt safe to come out of his shell and trust the staff caring for him. 
We noticed right away that Rigby had a strong odor (like an intact male cat) and it was thought that he was cryptorchid (that he had a retained testicle). After further testing it was determined that Rigby had an issue with his adrenal gland. 

WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE:  
Rigby saw a specialist for an ultrasound and the test determined he has a tumor on his adrenal gland. Based on the ACTH test results, surgery by a specialist is the best long-term option for Rigby. Surgery will provide him with comfort and quality of life; surgery will also give Rigby the option of finding an adoptive home (right now folks don't want to adopt him due to his odor). With surgery, our sweet Rigby should make a full recovery and find his forever home!

Rigby Surgery to Remove Adrenal Gland Tumor $4,600; Rigby Supportive Care $1,800; Rigby Continued Care $600; RIGBY TOTAL: $7,000.  DONATE NOW

To help Rigby heal we need to raise $7,000 for his care.

Despite Rigby's medical challenges he has become a very well-adjusted, social and loving cat and he is quick to greet new visitors entering his room. With your support, Rigby can have comfort and quality of life!   DONATE NOW
