A shelter staff member writes:
Meet little cute Lili. This snuggly little girl is in need of a new forever home since her previous owners surrender her at our care center because they were moving into a no pet home. Little precious Lili recently injured her hind leg and may possible have a Lateral patellar dislocation. She needs follow up veterinary care the sooner the better, so this cute little girl can get well and back to her ol playful self.
