The Adams County Humane Society says overwhelming financial support for a cat who arrived at the shelter with a broken leg, will also help pay for medical care for a dog at the shelter who needs surgery.

According to a post on the humane society's Facebook page, $300 was needed to treat the cat, now named Faith. The humane society says more than $1,112 was donated for Faith's treatment. Employees say the money will now be put into an account know as “Faith's Fund”.

They say the money will go to help pay for other medical issues above and beyond the normal care like Faith needed.

They say Faith's cast is now off, but she'll be on bed rest for a couple of weeks.

If you would like to donate to help future animals in these types of extra medical needs you can donate through PayPal on their website, adamscountyhumanesociety.org by writing Faith’s Fund in the comment section.

The Adam County Humane Society says as of 2 p.m., they were only $15 away from reaching their $300 goal to cover an injured cat's medical bills.

According to a post on their Facebook page, the vet said she will need to remain in her cast for another two weeks. They say once it is removed, she may need a couple of more weeks of rest before she can go up for adoption.

Employees at the humane society say "Faith" is very friendly and loves to be petted.
