Downey CA: PROMISING NEWS! RE: ZERO RESPONSE! $360 for MEDICAL CASE ALERT! ELVIS RE: DARLING 4 y/o SNOWSHOE INJURED BY DOG, HAS PROVISIONAL RESCUE BACKING IF FOSTER FOUND

OK even though nobody has stepped up to be the Plan B Foster for Elvis, the rescuers are going to gamble and hope that Elvis tests negative for FIV. He will be pulled from the shelter soon and if I see updates I will add them here.
******************
8/3 POST​
The shelter has given Elvis an extension to 8/5 (Tuesday). He has $360 in pledges and two(!) rescue groups backing him. The ONLY thing he needs is a Plan B foster home in the event he tests positive for FIV. Nobody has said that he is likely to test positive. The foster in such a scenario would still have rescue backing. Snowshoes are very popular cats. They are smart and somewhat unique/rare. They love company and do not like to be left alone. Obviously for Elvis to have lived through a dog attack - and being caged alone in a scary, loud, foul place - must be horrible for him.

Not a single offer :-(. 

Request for back-up foster is only for if he tests FIV +.

MeoowResQ has a foster otherwise and Cat Connection will provide medical care. Please, someone offer to help save this valuable life!

We have a potential plan with Cat Connection/MeoowzResQ co-rescuing but Elvis needs to be FIV neg. Adrienne has too many + cases right now who aren't getting adopted.
Can anyone offer to be back-up if he tests +?
Foster would have full rescue backing, but would need to find home for him if +.

9AM: Elvis' pledges are currently at $360. He needs someone to foster him per details below.

PLEASE NOTE: Cat Connection will rescue back Elvis and place him provided he is not FIV+. If he is, they will provide medical care until he is recovered but will need either another rescue or foster to be responsible for finding this deserving boy a home. $285 pledged so far.

Elvis arrived 7/28 and is available today 8/1.
The shelter vet has treated his wound and inserted a drain.
Ally Sims met him yesterday and took the below photo. 
She says: THIS BABY IS A TOTAL PACKAGE, SWEET BISCUIT MAKING LOVER!
Cat Connection is offering rescue back if we can find an approved foster.
Please, he needs a foster preferably close to San Fernando Valley, but that is not a requirement. 
He could also use some pledges.
