She was hiding at a construction site. Scared, alone, covered in filth, and suffering from a painful eye infection. A kind man saw her, swooped her up and brought her to his local county shelter, DeKalb County Animal Services.

When she came in, we were already there transferring animals in need into our care. And as soon as we saw her, we knew she was coming with us too.

Penelope was immediately taken to an AHS foster home where she received a bath, warm compresses over her eyes, medication and snuggles.

 She started purring and her eyes started to clear up. Now, Penelope gets to learn how to be a great family member and grow up a bit before she is placed up for adoption and finds her loving forever home.
