Athena was featured on 11Alive news one night soon after Kaye and I moved from Florida to the Atlanta area. She had been shot in both front legs and thrown in a sewer. Someone heard her cries and contacted Animal Control. Animal Control responded, freed her from the sewer and took her to T&C. Dr. Good treated her injuries and we fostered her while she recovered and soon adopted her. She was approximately 3-4 months old at the time. She is now 10 and sleeps with us every night.
