Jewel Gets a Second Chance

JewelSix-week-old Jewel is an adorable tabby who came to the Kentucky Humane Society at the end of September. When little Jewel arrived at KHS, she was under a month old and in dire shape. The poor kitten was suffering from multiple fractures to her ribs, pelvis and vertebrae—most likely caused by being either stepped on or kicked. She was extremely lethargic, couldn’t stand or walk, and in so much pain that her eyes would swell with tears any time our staff gingerly picked her up to feed her. We weren’t sure whether Jewel would have the strength to survive, but we knew she deserved a chance.

Horse owners in Breathitt, Perry, Knott and Letcher counties can have their stallions castrated by a veterinarian for free on Saturday, October 28, 2017. The veterinarian will come to the horse owner’s property to perform the surgery.
