    Hi Everyone - We have exciting updates on Hugh Jackman to share with you! He has had a few more surgeries these past weeks and it looks like after a month in critical care, he will be moving to his permanent home with an awesome couple in Connecticut. This couple has years of experience with trauma cats and are able to provide Hugh with a lifetime of support. We couldn't be happier and more excited to share the news with you.

    We still haven't met our goal to cover Hugh's cost of care, but we are certainly grateful for your contribution! Everyone at ACC thanks you for your generosity.

    Here is a picture of Hugh in his foster home. We hope you enjoy seeing him so happy!

Campaign Details

A kitten that suffered severe burns over 40 percent of its body is beginning to thrive as he recovers at a New York City animal hospital.

A Good Samaritan found the kitty, dubbed Hugh Jackman, on Liberty Avenue in Brooklyn with injuries to all four legs, his ears and his nose.


That person brought him to the Animal Care Centers of New York City (ACC) before he was transferred to BluePearl Veterinary Partners, where he has been getting round-the-clock veterinary care for the past two weeks.

"He's an extremely tough cat," BluePearl veterinarian Dr. Meredith Daly said. "He's just tough as nails, and he's such a good boy."


It is unclear if injuries came from abuse or a terrible accident, but the ACC is asking the public to pass along any information and also to make donations for his care.

"It's horrifying to see such abuse," ACC chief operating officer MeLissa Webber said. "We are grateful that Hugh was spotted on the street and brought to our attention."


Hugh Jackman had extensive burns on all four of his legs, as well as trauma to the bones of his feet and loss of his fur.

The tips of his ears were burned off, and his chin, nose, and eyes were also badly damaged. ACC staff determined that his injuries were so severe he needed to be taken to BluePearl's Midtown hospital.

Dr. Daly said that in spite of Hugh's extremely painful injuries, he enjoys his time with the BluePearl veterinarians and technicians who change his bandages daily, and he even nuzzles and cuddles them.
