Evelyn (a 10-12 week old gray kitten nicknamed Evie) was struck by a car on a Sundayon Bennett Drive in Caribou, Maine and the driver DID NOT stop to help her. For two hours, local people stopped by the road and tried to get agencies to help and received no response. Finally, someone realized that perhaps HALFWAY HOME PET RESCUE had not been called and within 10 minutes, rescuers Kevin and Kate McCarthy had Evelyn at the HHPR intake center where she was examined and called in for an emergency visit to the HHPR vet at the Presque Isle Animal Hospital, Presque Isle, Maine. Within 30 minutes of that call, Eviewas in hospital and after X-rays, snap-combo testing, she was set up for a surgery date to pin her little leg together in an hopeful attempt to save her leg from amputation. The surgery has been remarkably successful and Evelyn is in a foster home enjoying lots of loving attention and limited safe exercise while she continues in her recovery. At a very greatly reduced surgical fee, exams, x-rays, testing, Evelyn's current medical bills are close to 700.00 now with a couple of hundred dollars more expected in her future. Evelyn is a sweet, very loving and kissable kitten who just loves her new foster family. HHPR considers the McCarthy couple Evelyn's HERO for saving her life.
