Leo's Vet bill

Leo's Vet bill

Personal message

My name is Chantelle and I live in Durbanville, Cape Town. I am raising funds for my neighbours the Tavares family who are in desperate need of funds for their extremely high vet bill

They are a very lovely and humble family. They are however struggling financially and need help with paying off some bills.

Leo is a beautiful Abyssinian cat who got attacked by another cat. He has got torn ligaments in his back left leg. He also has a fractured and dislocated paw. Leo went in for surgery and has a very long and painful recovery ahead.

Leo's family loves him very much and will do anything to help him and make him feel better. This has unfortunately left them with a vet bill of R20,000.

All funds raised for Leo will go directly to his vet bills which include his surgery, overnight hospital stays as well as follow up appointments and medication. Any extra funds raised will go towards future vet bills for any follow-up appointments needed or extra care needed to help Leo recover.

Once Leo's bills are settled, any other funds raised will be donated to animal welfare to help any other animals in need of medical attention.

I know this family will appreciate any help they can get and of course, Leo will be most grateful, too. Any donations made towards Leo's vet bill will help this family more than anyone can imagine. This family is a struggling single income home. Helping them settle Leo's vet bill will take a huge amount of stress off and will help them to support their daughter in college. Leo is part of their family and gives them a lot of love and happiness.

*Donations will go directly to Tygerberg Vet*
