Help Purchase Important URI Medication for Cats

Every month in our present shelter, the Ottawa Humane Society treats between 120 and 150 cases of Upper Respiratory Infection (URI). URI is a cat cold, which can be caused by a virus or bacteria. It results in sneezing, runny nose and eyes, congestion, cough and loss of appetite in cats. In a stressful shelter environment, URI can have serious complications and is often life-threatening.

Cats with bacterial URI require medication, in the form of eye drops or pills, as well as rest and plenty of fluids.

The OHS spends $175/month on bacterial URI medication.

Help us purchase the needed medication to care for sick cats.

$2,100 will treat 1,615 cats
$1,000 will treat 769 cats
$500 will treat 385 cats
$100 will treat 77 cats
