Portland Reddit Community Helps Raise $3,000 to Rescue Injured Kitten

Friday, January 02, 2015

 

Canyon the kitten after she was rescued Dec. 28 in Beaverton, Ore.

The Portland online community helped raise $3,000 in just two days to help cover the veterinary bills of an injured kitten, according to a GoFundMe.com page registered by its new owner.

The cat was found on the side of Canyon Drive in Beaverton Monday after the animal appeared to have been run-over by a car. Both of its back-leg femurs were broken and required surgery.

Melanie Blake, rescued the cat and named her Canyon, after the street where she found her. Blake quickly enlisted the help of Cat's Cradle Rescue, an animal rescue organization based in Hillsboro, to coordinate the effort to save the life of the four to six week old kitten, the organization stated. Vets at the Tanasbourne Veterinary Emergency Clinic estimated Canyon’s care would cost approximately $3,000.

Blake posted an ad on Portland’s craigslist asking the community for help. The ad was promptly linked-to on Reddit as well as the Cat’s Cradle Rescue’s home page.

“Why did I click on that?” the first commenter on Reddit stated. “I just started crying and throwing money at it.”

Within two days of Blake registering the account, 123 individuals had raised the $3,000 she had requested.

Canyon is said to be recovering well from her surgery, according to Cat’s Cradle Rescue. Vets expect her to be walking normally again in six to eight weeks.

Riley

Breed: Chihuahua/ Mix
Gender: Male
Age: Adult

My name is Riley, I am a little guy looking to catch a little break in a big world! I can be a little nervous at times but it only takes me a little bit of time to warm up. I would be too overwhelmed for a home with little kids, so I am hoping to find a family with children older than 12. I will need a little bit of house training--crate training would be an excellent way to help with house traing and give me a safe place to call my own. I am hoping you see the BIG potential and what a great little companion I will be. I am about 5 years of age and I weigh a little over 10 lbs. Ask about me today!

Hello! Are you looking for a sweet, gentle, mature guy? Well that's me! My name is Gigas and I'm looking for a home to live out my golden years.

Sandra

Breed: Labrador Retriever/ Mix

Baby Boy

Breed: Siamese/ Mix
Gender: Male
Age: Adult

Hello, my name is Baby Boy. I arrived at the shelter with my siblings because my dad is no longer able to take care of us. He is heartbroken and hopes that we can find a home who loved us as much as he did. We were acquired as a feral litter that he rehabilitated and my dad says that although I am shy with strangers, I warm up within hours and am an amazing cat. We lived with other cats and dogs but have never been exposed to children. My adopter should be a single person or couple who is patient and can provide us a quiet space to blossom. I am around 5 years old and weigh 15.4 pounds. Ask about me today!

Lexie

Breed: Shetland Sheepdog/ Mix
Gender: Female
Age: Adult

Hello! My shelter friends have affectionately named me Lexie for my adorable face and my diva personality. I would like to start off saying that if you are searching for a first time easy going dog for your companion then I am probably not the gal for you. An experienced adult only adopter who is willing to give me time to build a trusting relationship, who doesn't have a busy household and who is willing to respect my boundaries sounds like a better match for me! If you bring along some hot dog or cheese for a first time meeting, that will definitely sweeten the deal. Are you interested in a special girl like me? I have been at the shelter for over two months and would love a home for the holidays. I am around 12 years old and weigh 15 pounds.

Sabrina

Breed: Domestic Longhair/ Mix
Gender: Female
Age: Adult

Hello, they call me Sabrina here at the shelter. A nice man saw me get hit by a car near 122nd & Sandy, so he brought me here. Turns out my leg couldn't be fixed, so I said let's get rid of it. I'm scheduled to have it removed on December 26th, and if I had a home that could take care of me right after that without moving in and out of foster, that would be the best ever. I'm a sweet little girl, only about 4 1/2 years old, so there's a lot of good time to be spent with me, brushing my fur and buying me toys and yummy treats. Of course you will want to keep me inside only, since outside is where I got into trouble before. Come down and see what a charming young lady I am.
