Camden Needs Your Help

ACR receives pleas from individuals all the time for financial help for emergency surgeries to help save their cats, and unfortunately, we are unable to financially or physically help everyone. (We wish we could, but resources do not allow.) However, we do try to help in any way that we can; which usually means finding someone or some group that is able to assist with specific kitty needs. And so is true in Camden’s case.

Camden was rescued from the streets of Baltimore over a year ago by a kind-hearted woman. She took him in and gave him a warm cozy home, unlike the cold harsh streets he was used to, and provided him with the vet care he needed. Everything was good until unexpectedly, about a week ago, Camden became sick. The vet explained to Mari that his condition was treatable but it would be costly. So, she weighed the options and held true to her commitment which she made when she adopted Camden; Mari was committed to providing Camden the care he deserves no matter what the cost. (Especially since Camden is a young cat and his condition is treatable.)

Camden’s story especially hit home with ACR staff when we learned that the surgery he needed was to fix a persistent urinary condition. Pumpkin, an ACR office kitty, also underwent the same surgery to correct his chronic urethra blockages, and since he has had the surgery he is a new cat! Pumpkin romps around the office with the other cats and loves to lay in the window soaking up the sun. Being a no-kill organization, we could not imagine putting Pumpkin, Camden, or any other cat to sleep because of financial constraints...especially when a condition is treatable. Therefore, ACR is sharing Camden’s story with you as the least we can do. Please visit Mari and Camden’s blog to learn more about their story and to see how you can help.
