Shuswap kitty Galaxy needs a world of change

December 28, 2018

Staff at the BC SPCA’s Shuswap Branch are hoping you’ll be able to help them help Galaxy, a one-year-old, very friendly female black cat.

Galaxy, a black cat brought into the SPCA's Shuswap Branch, is under sedation.

“Poor Galaxy was found in the yard of a carpentry business,” says Victoria Olynik, manager, SPCA Shuswap Branch. “She appeared to be searching for food and shelter in the area. A staff member at the carpentry business was fortunately able to coax the kitty into her car; she then brought her to us for care.”

It turned out this beautiful cat had been walking around with a broken leg, clearly snapped in half — with a few bits of bone floating around. “At this point, the only way we will be able to relieve her pain is by amputating the leg. She’s got a long way to go before she recovers, but she’s a brave girl and we know she can get through this.”

Bills for Galaxy’s care are estimated to reach more than $2,100.

Galaxy was found in Salmon Arm with a broken leg. Unfortunately, it will need to be amputated.

If you’re able to help Galaxy, or other animals like her, we invite you to visit our medical emergency page, or you can donate in person at 5850 Auto Road SE in Salmon Arm.
