CARSON CITY, NEVADA – The Nevada Humane Society is asking for donations to help an injured cat who was found on the side of the road in Carson City.
Carson, who is about two years old, was taken to the Carson Tahoe Veterinary Hospital to be stabilized. Afterwards, he was later taken to the Nevada Humane Society in Reno, which has a clinic and a veterinary team.
Carson suffered a broken jaw, bruising and scrapes throughout his entire body. He also suffered two severely broken front legs which required an appointment with a specialist.
“Carson, at first glance, is beyond adorable,” Kimberly Wade, Nevada Humane Society senior manager of communications and events, said in a statement she made on Thursday.
“His acceptance of people is off the charts, and he will always make you smile,” Wade said. “His purr is constant, and he kneads his paws every time someone looks at him – even through his pain and medical exams.”
Carson did undergo surgery at the Nevada Humane Society clinic. His jaw was wired up to help it heal. He’s scheduled for soft tissue, oncologic and orthopedic surgery at the Sierra Veterinary Specialists.
Donations can be made to the Nevada Humane Society’s Emily Fund for Injured Pets or mailed to 2825 Longley Lane in Reno. Donors can also call the shelter at 775-856-2000 ext. 324.
