BRISTOL, Ind. (WNDU) -The Humane Society of Elkhart County cares for animals every day, including injured ones.

In January, Albany was rescued by animal control officers.

The 3-year-old Siamese/Lynx Point mix was brought to the shelter covered in fleas and severely injured.

After doing x-rays, staff discovered his leg was shattered from BB pellets, and he had pellets in his chest.

“We have a clinic here, amazing staff,” said Janet Graham, marketing & outreach manager for HSEC. “And they were able to do surgery and remove the leg and remove the other pellets. And he’s healing nicely and ready for a home.”

After Albany was featured on 16 Morning News Now, he was adopted. He is now recovering in a loving, forever home.

There’s a February adoption special happening right now at the Humane Society of Elkhart County.

You can adopt any pet older than 6 months for just $14.
