She’s had a bit of a bumpy start to her young life, so seven-month-old Sushi could certainly use a helping paw.
“Sushi came into our care as an evacuee from the BC SPCA’s Williams Lake Branch in August because of the wildfires,” says Charlotte Ellice, manager, West Vancouver Branch. “This sweet girl has a fractured pelvis and it’s an old injury that will need treatment. Back in Williams Lake, she came in as a stray, but not long after that, she and many other animals were evacuated to the Greater Vancouver area. We’d love to give Sushi a chance to live out the rest of her life comfortably.”
Ellice says the injury has created a few day-to-day challenges for Sushi, but that hasn’t stopped the little short-haired tabby’s personality from shining through. “Even though this injury has been limiting what Sushi is able to do, she’s still such a bright ball of fluff. She’s incredibly friendly and social. She’s always curious about the world around her; always wants to play, and if staff ever need a pick-me-up, you can count on Sushi to provide you with an affectionate purr or rub.”
Medical costs for Sushi include her x-rays, along with surgery, follow-up care and rehabilitation. This bill is expected to exceed $4,000.
“Sushi is going to make an amazing addition to someone’s family once she’s done care,” says Ellice. “We want to make sure starts her new life off on the purr-fect foot.”
