Peter Pan is an eight-week-old kitty who was attacked by a dog after being left exposed to the elements near the shelter. When the shelter staff found him in the morning, they discovered he had suffered a traumatic hernia and was rushed to emergency surgery. He is now recovering with a foster family. The shelter needs help to cover the cost of his surgery before he can be adopted. To contribute, visit Peter Pan’s intake number is 467275. Reference picture: Peter Pan.
