We rescue and provide sanctuary to cats with Hydrocephalus while providing quality medical specialty care through some of the top-ranked specialists in North America. In addition, we provide education, networking with all top veterinary neurosurgeons, and have a grant program awarding limited financial assistance to families and rescues with animals that are currently diagnosed with hydrocephalus, or have a suspected diagnosis of hydrocephalus.
We were awarded non-profit 501c3 status on July 20, 2015.
Hydrocephalus is a neurological disease in which there is an excessive amount of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) within the ventricular system of the brain. Hydrocephalus affects males and females equally and may be seen in both young and older animals. Hydrocephalus in cats is mainly treated with medication, though sometimes Shunt surgery to remove the extra fluid is necessary.
