Lambchop was a stray cat found in a bad neighborhood. Some lovely ladies who work with local rescues and trap-neuter-release programs witnessed some kids kicking rocks at him and being abusive.


The ladies picked him up and gave him to a temporary foster that was able to keep him until they could find a permanent foster parent. That’s when I came across his picture on facebook pleading for a rescue to step up and take him.

I knew right away I wanted to help this defeated looking angel.

It didn’t long to notice he was limping. After having a specialist look at his x-ray it was determined that he had an old fracture that had already healed incorrectly due to lack of treatment and it was causing him great pain.


It was decided the best treatment to stop the pain was to have the leg amputated.

Lambchop is now back home with his foster mom safe and sound recovering. Despite the horrible and cruel life he has had to endure he still has a good spirit. He is so sweet and loves affection, and is begging for pets just hours after surgery!

Lambchop has found an awesome home! Thank you for all of your generous donations and support. We couldn’t have done it without everyone behind us!
