Tiny Tim's Surgery Went Well!

We are delighted to announce that Tiny Tim's surgery went well! As we post this update, he is resting and recovering in his new foster home. Our community raised over $7,000 for Tiny Tim's surgery. This is beyond amazing, and we cannot thank everyone who donated to help Tiny Tim enough. The extra money raised will go to support our other animals in need of medical attention and care.

Only 5 months old, Tiny Tim arrived at the centre as a stray in poor condition. The physical examination, including bloodwork and x-rays administered by the Humane Society veterinary team, revealed a long list of health concerns. Tiny Tim had a fracture in his front left leg. The team also found a previous injury – a dislocation of the elbow in the same limb – which had become infected. He will also have to be treated with antibiotics for a lice infestation.

Tiny Tim headed into emergency surgery on Tuesday to have his front left leg amputated. The HSKWSP estimated that his medical and care costs could reach up to $4,000 or more by the time he is ready for adoption. This includes the cost of surgery to have the infected limb removed, neuter surgery, antibiotics and cost of care. 

We are hopeful Tiny Tim will make a full recovery within 4-6 weeks, after which he will be ready to find his forever home. 

To everyone who helped Tiny Tim - thank you
