Our post from March 3, 2014, 24 Persian and Siamese Cats Living in Car are Surrendered to a Humane Society, told of a veteran fallen on hard times who surrendered her pets when she entered the hospital.
The Humane Society of Lebanon County, PA took responsibility for 24 beautiful cats and 3 dogs surrendered by the US military veteran who was living in her car with the animals after losing her job and then her home in mid-January. The woman let staff know her pets were in the car and turned the animals over to the Humane Society when she checked herself into the Lebanon VA Medical Center.
Unlike some people who abandon their pets when they lose their homes, the woman tried to keep her much loved furry companions, though their life in the car was less than ideal.
All of the woman’s pets but one have now been adopted into good homes. The last remaining pet is a little kitten who needed to reach a certain weight before she could be rehomed.
Dori, the Persian kitten in the photo above, will be put up for adoption on Wednesday, April 23. Dori is a dilute tortoiseshell, and is approximately four months old. She will be adopted on a first-come, first-served basis to those with an approved adoption application. The shelter is open from 10 am to 4:30 pm on Wednesday
“We’re just very happy to be able to give back to our veterans,” Suzanne Biever, the shelter’s Communications Director, said. “The veteran’s animals have been well taken care of at the shelter and have found their new homes. Now it’s Dori’s turn.”
Once Dori is rehomed, the promise to care for the veteran’s pets and find them homes will be fulfilled.
