KEAN – A1035973
*SAFE* 05/13/15- HIT BY CAR!! Poor Kean! Kean was brought to our shelter as a stray. He has weak back legs and does not use them very much. Our vets think he was hit by a car. He has received radiographs and there are no apparent fractures. He will need to see a vet to make sure he doesn’t have spinal damage. Kean is also overweight. He will need to go on a diet, so that he can lose weight and stay healthy. Help Kean get out of here, get to a vet and then find a forever home!
