Cheeseburger had been hit by a car in Jersey City and arrived at LHS with a fractured tibia in May. The handsome orange and white kitten's leg healed well and he became an LHS staff favorite (we even decorated his cast with stars and stripes for Fourth of July!) but after a number of months he was still waiting to find his forever home. Cheeseburger’s luck changed in September, when he caught the eye of North Shore Animal League's Karla Agostinello, who makes regular trips from Long Island to Jersey City to help us out.
“Within two weeks, Cheeseburger found his family, and he is doing great!” said Agostinello. “It gives me great satisfaction to pull animals from local shelters and bring them back to North Shore Animal League to find them loving homes. I have been working with LHS for some time now, and we have a great partner relationship. Like us, they have the same goals: to find homes for the animals that are in their care.”
A huge thank you to North Shore, who has transferred a whopping 41 cats from LHS this year.
