Emaciated Kitten With Shattered Leg Found Limping Around Pennsylvania Schoolyard Needs Your Support To Recover

Meet Domino.

Life on the streets is tough, especially for injured animals. A four-month-old kitten was found limping around a Philadelphia suburb schoolyard by a kindhearted man who took him to a local vet for care.

The black-and-white kitten was given antibiotics, treatment for fleas, and eye medication – but he needed more help. The good Samaritan brought the kitten to Royce’s Rescue, a no-kill animal shelter, for additional care.

The little fella arrived in horrible shape. He was emaciated, dehydrated, unable to open his eyes due to infection and one of his legs was just dangling. Their vet discovered the leg was shattered in multiple spots and said there is no way of saving the leg. The only option is amputation.

Domino needs to regain his strength before he can undergo surgery. His sweet demeanor and fighting spirit have won the hearts of his caretakers. They shared that he still manages to use the litter box even with a broken leg.

The loving feline is finally getting the care he needs, but still has a long way to go. The rescue, like many others in the country, are full of homeless animals and their minimal budgets are not enough to cover the food and medical care of all the pets. They rely on generous people and their donations to help save lives.

They reached out to Greater Good Charities’ Emergency Animal Medical fund to help cover Domino’s medical expenses. The fund was created to save animals in need of emergency medical care and give them a second chance at finding a loving home.

“This sweet little guy is receiving veterinary care, lots of love and medicine to help bring him back to health, but he is also scheduled for surgery to remove his shattered leg,” stated the rescue. He will remain under their care for a further 2-4 weeks as he regains his mobility.

He is sure to find a loving home once he fully recovers.

Pets receiving critical care facilitated by an Emergency Animal Medical grant may not be eligible for adoption until they have completed their course of treatment. If you would like to inquire about adoption of a specific animal, we strongly encourage you to visit the shelter’s specific website first as that is often the most up to date place to learn about available pets and review the adoption policies and process. Check out Royce’s Rescue’s website to see all adoptable pets.
