Update March 4th, 2013 – Wylie is doing really well! Dr. Bailey has said that he is ready to be adopted!! Hi foster mom, Karen, says that he is doing well and would be best suited to a quiet home with no other animals.
Meet our newest rescue, Wylie. He was spotted by a kind woman, Lois, in her yard. He was trying to eat some peanuts that Lois had left out for the squirrels. She watched him for a week, not knowing what to do, but seeing that he had a very badly broken leg that had healed badly. Luckily, she saw Karen from Barn Rats Needs Barn Cats on TV, so she knew just who to call. Karen, in turn, contacted us here at GVAC and we agreed to take this poor kitty into care once she trapped him. After a 5am trapping by Lois, she had Wylie in her trap and needed to get him to the vet asap. As soon as Karen saw him, she realized that he was not a feral cat at all, but a poor stray or abandoned kitty. Karen & Lois rushed him to the emergency clinic, paying for xrays and emergency care from their own pockets.
Karen had given us the heads up that Wylie was going to be trapped soon, so we had contacted Juan de Fuca vet and they offered a very good discount on thier fees so that we could help this poor kitty. They took him in right away and found that his leg had been broken approximately 3 months ago and that he also had some badly broken teeth. There was no way to save his leg, having healed so badly, so it was amputated.

Now, Wylie is being fostered by Karen, but is in full care of GVAC. We have promised to pay all of his vet bills and will find him the most perfect home once he has healed completely and the vets at Juan de Fuca give him a clean bill of health.
So far, GVAC has payed $2000 for his vet bills and are asking our wonderful supporters to help out in any way they can. Karen is emailing us pictures so that we can continue to update this page.
