A wonderful guy saw this kitten stuck, rescued her, and was searching for a veterinarian clinic. He spotted our mobile adoption unit and our staff was there to take Sunny in with open arms. Beth named her Sunny because there are only sunny skies ahead. And Beth was right! Sunny has found her loving home.
