Scraggly Rescued From Puppy Mill Life

This scraggly wee one was rescued from a puppy mill and has made an incredible comeback.

It’s definitely a happy ending for a kitty who had a rough beginning to life. Athena, a Persian, was found when the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) busted a home in North Carolina.

Due to the deplorable conditions she lived in, Athena was suffering from eye and upper respiratory infections. She was also a feisty one, having lived her entire life in this place.

When they got her off the filthy property, she was resisting and didn’t trust anyone who was trying to rescue her. They immediately took her to Brother Wolf Animal Rescue, where volunteers gave her all the medical care and TLC she desperately needed and began to rehabilitate her and help her learn to trust again.

Today Athena has a family that loves her to pieces and a place she calls home. She is still a sassy cat, but now she knows what it’s like to be loved.

She enjoys spending time with her forever human named Dani Ellis and her canine friends.
