We Saved London's Life Thanks to Your Support
It’s what every pet parent fears… their beloved, furry family member gets sick or injured.
Especially when they are just 6-months-old.
That’s exactly what happened to Tayler’s sweet kitty, London, who was lounging on the 2nd story balcony ledge (reportedly her favorite “perch”), when a vase crashed to the ground. London was startled and fell 12 feet, hitting the hard tile below.
Tayler was shocked at the sudden turn of events and rushed London to the emergency vet where she was quoted $5,000 for the necessary surgery – a femoral head ostectomy. Yikes.
Tayler was distraught… she’d never be able to afford the surgery on her own. Thankfully, her boyfriend had heard about the community support efforts of Hearts Alive Village.
She called us and we helped her pay for the lifesaving surgery with our Village Fund, a program sustained by compassionate animal-loving heroes (like you!) in our community.
As we get older, we realize that heroes don’t actually wear capes (my apologies if this is the first you’re hearing of this). As adults, heroes are those who stand up for what they believe in. They are the people who protect the innocent and who speak for those who have no voice. Heroes still save the world, but in a very different way. They are brave, compassionate, and generous.
A Quote From Tayler:
“London did really well in surgery and she’ll get her stitches out this Friday. She limps a bit, but she is starting to walk again. She’s got energy and is eating and drinking just fine.
I love London so much. She’s kind of a mean cat (to others) but she’s super nice to me. She’s not aggressive, she just hisses if she doesn’t know you. She’s super cuddly with me. She’s my first pet and I’d do anything I could for her. I love her like she’s my kid.”

Stories like this are happening every week at Hearts Alive Village. Dogs and cats across the region in desperate need of a helping paw, are getting the help they need, thanks to the heroes who support our mission.
