Sad news to share about Archie

It is with a heavy heart that I share some sad news about Archie, the beloved kitten that our entire community rallied behind when he came into GHS’s care just before Thanksgiving Weekend.

While Archie’s prognosis was initially promising, he passed away earlier this week.

Archie was so special to us, and to all of you, and the support of our community allowed us to provide vital veterinary care to address the serious injuries he suffered after being hit by a car. Archie initially recovered well following surgery to repair his fractured jaw. He subsequently suffered a ruptured bladder that developed the following week and we provided a second emergency surgery to repair it.

We are heartbroken that despite our dedicated efforts, Archie developed complications that he was unable to fight through.


Help Archie get the URGENT CARE he needs!

Archie, an 8-week-old kitten, was found on the side of a road in Wellington County. Having been hit by a vehicle, he has experienced tremendous injuries and needs your support today. 

He has a broken jaw and a fractured eye socket. He is currently on a feeding tube to help him heal, and your support is needed now to help Archie return to the quality of life that he deserves. Archie will be in a veterinary hospital for the next four days, spending his first Thanksgiving alone without family.
