I have to head out but thought of this at the door. Any vet tech that may be off today that might be willing to donate some time to help you or for a small fee or maybe a rescue that you know whos helper or employee wh is off today may be willing. Just some more possible avenues you might consider to tap into. Might be worth a try to call the vet if you have a good relationship there.
