Happy Tails

Sweet Potato the three-legged kitty came to the shelter with a severely injured hind leg -- so bad the bone was actually visible. The shelter is not equipped to deal with urgent medical issues, so Sweet Potato was rushed to the Willingboro Vet Clinic. Sadly, his leg had to be amputated. The Burlington County Animal Alliance took Sweet Potato from there, where he waited patiently in a foster home for quite some time. Finally, Sweet Potato was adopted into his loving forever home! "Thank you so much for all your help! I'm thankful that he was given another chance at life!"
