A landlord discovered an abandoned and ill Machi and brought him to a kill shelter. By the time he was rescued, he had to be treated for a double eye infection and put on a high protein diet. He's a fighter, and with his foster mom's help, he's thriving. We'd like to place him in the right home as soon as possible. If you can give this boy the love he deserves, apply today.
