Ging's emergency fund

Who knows how long Ging waited in agonising pain before help finally arrived.

The stray ginger cat was spotted at Taperoo, in Adelaide’s west, with such a bad limp that he could barely walk.

After receiving an emergency call for help, RSPCA Rescue Officer Brigitte rushed to save Ging, transporting him via Animal Ambulance to our Lonsdale shelter.

RSPCA’s veterinary team soon determined Ging had somehow fractured his left hind leg.

One of his paws had a deep laceration through one toe, leading our vets to suspect he may have caught himself in a metal fence and then fractured his leg trying to escape.

Worse yet, the wasted state of muscles in Ging’s injured leg indicated that his injury had likely occurred at least several days earlier.

Our skilled vet team worked hard in an attempt to save Ging’s leg by cleaning, clipping and bandaging the injured limb.

But daily care revealed few signs of improvement, so the decision was made to amputate Ging’s badly fractured leg – in order to save his life.

Ging is now recovering after major surgery. He looks brighter every day, but will need ongoing specialist care over the coming weeks as he recovers and adjusts to life with three legs.

Will you help us give Ging the love and care he needs to get better?

We estimate the total cost of Ging’s surgery and recovery will be $1400.

Can you please donate today to help give Ging the best chance of recovering and finding the loving forever home he deserves?


* The goal for Ging’s fundraiser includes surgery to amputate his fractured leg and rehabilitation costs, as well as desexing, vaccinations, microchipping, regular health checks and daily care – which will continue until he’s ready for adoption. If his medical and care costs are less than is raised in his name, additional funds will provide care for other animals in need.
