Humane Society saves ‘Willy the Cat’ amid COVID-19 closures

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — A cat who was found after he was shot in the face is recovering at the Humane Society of West Michigan.

“Willy” the cat was found on March 26 and was taken to the shelter in Walker. Though the Humane Society was closed due to COVID-19, they are still accepting emergency surrenders.

When Willy arrived at the Humane Society, it was unclear what exactly happened, but medical staff could see something was wrong with his eye. After performing surgery on Willy, it was discovered that he had been shot in the eyeball and it ruptured. He also had a lump on the side of his neck from the bullet.

Anyone who has information about Willy should email hguild@hswestmi.org and the proper authorities will be contacted.
