An online campaign dedicated to raising money for an injured kitten's medical treatment has, so far, raised $422.
Flushing's Joe Caravella Jr. created a GoFundMe page titled "Kitty Sally Needs Medical Attention," with the goal of raising a total $600. So far, 17 people have donated to the fund.
The page reads:
My kitty Sally was injured two nights ago. Her rear leg was broken. I called many vets in Flushing and none would treat her on a sliding scale.
I am disabled and on [Social Security Disability], so I don't have money laying around to get her taken care of. I am desperate because I don't want her to be in discomfort and pain, yet I cannot get her treated because my finances are not great.
So, I am turning to my animal loving friends on Facebook with the hopes I can raise the funds to have my girl treated. She is 13 years old and sweet as pie. Her name is Sally. Please help us.
