Sweet Valentine had a broken leg and a broken heart.
She was abandoned by her family after she was hit by a car. They couldn’t afford the operation to remove her shattered leg. And neither could the rural animal shelter that took her in.
Emily is a nine-year-old kitty who came to the Kentucky Humane Society from an overcrowded shelter. Emily came in confused and alone. She hid from strangers. But with big, soulful eyes, Emily let us know how much she craved attention.
