Kirby was carelessly abandoned outside the New Rochelle Humane Society, giving her transition to shelter life a rough start. Her acclimation didn’t go easily at first; Kirby’s pleasingly plump size compounded her problems because she was too big to fit into a private enclosure.
But Kirby managed to work things out, at least for the time being. The 5-year-old girl has been given free roam of one of the shelter’s staff areas, and has clearly crowned herself queen. Kirby will undoubtedly be more than comfortable in a home of her own. Shelter life is just not her thing.
Come meet Kirby for yourself. Open every day for adoption, the New Rochelle Humane Society is located at 70 Portman Road. Call 632-2925 or visit the shelter’s website.
