This little girl is named Irene. She was a stray found with her only kitten. A young sweet mom, she took good care of her baby until they were adopted and now she is looking for her new home. She was a young mama, is very tiny, and is only 1 1/2 years old. She is shy at first, but loves to be held and cuddled.

If you are interested in giving love to Irene, or another animal looking for a home, contact the Humane Society of Genesee County at info@geneseehumane.org. You can also visit them during their regular business hours to meet these sweet brothers.

If you are not looking to adopt right now, you can help out the Humane Society of Genesee County by being sure to choose them as your charity when shopping Amazon and Kroger. A percentage of your sale will go to HSGC to help support the care of all these sweet animals waiting to find their furver homes. Every little bit helps and is greatly appreciated.

Tuesday Tails is made possible by our friends at Key-Lore Kanine Kountry Klub.
