Happy #FosterFriday we want to introduce Charlie!🐱 This fella is one of our animals that is currently unavailable for adoption, but would love to find himself a foster home! Charlie is an 11-year-old, domestic short hair. He's currently undergoing medical treatment and does require daily medicating. A foster home with experience medicating felines would be great - but KVHS is willing to help teach humans how to do this as well. Charlie is playful, affectionate, sometimes independent, and obviously adorable! Overall, Charlie is a purrfect boy! If you are interested in fostering Charlie or other types of shelter animals, please fill out our foster application. Foster application⬇️pethavenlane.org/foster/ ... See MoreSee Less
