Kirby at SLA.wmv
K.C. (Kirby Cuddles, A1197385, 1 year old, all of 8 pounds) is a medical staff favorite. He has charmed them with his extra-cheery personality -- in the face of innumerable broken bones. Maybe the x-ray machine was playing tricks on them -- but it seems that this little fellow has old fractures throughout his small frame -- femur, tibia, ilium, pubis, sacro-iliac and don't forget, acetabular. And yet he gets around like a speed demon, never complaining. Will he need surgery? Most likely. He's only a year old and has a very busy schedule ahead, romping and running. He'll have to be in tip-top shape for those activities. Oh, and we can't forget to mention his unusual brindle coat!!! It was thought he was just dirty until shaved down and the markings appeared! Let's save this sweetheart who was ignored and mistreated by some loser owner who must have known K.C. had been hurt. We can raise donations for a qualified rescue to get K.C. to an orthopedic vet. To meet him, come visit the South L.A. shelter 3612 11th Ave., L.A. 90018. Or call (213) 485-0117 or -0119. And please let us know that he has been rescued.
