Pet of the Week

sophie

Meet Sophie! This one-eyed beauty has come so far since her arrival at the shelter. She came in with a ruptured eye, injured paw, and was very scared. After some TLC from our medical team, Sophie started to feel better and with that, started showing staff her sweet, affectionate side. We're confident that with patient owners, Sophie will blossom in her new home. She seems to get along fine with other calm cats here at the shelter and should do well in a home too. Give this special girl the home she deserves - she'll be forever grateful!
