A cat that was shot 17 times in the head with a pellet gun in Bright’s Grove has moved in with a foster family.
The cat, affectionately known as ‘Joe’, was released from Sarnia’s Blue Cross Animal Hospital on Thursday (picture courtesy of Sarnia and District Humane Society) following a lengthy stay.
The two-year old cat was discovered badly injured on February 2nd. His veterinarian was able to remove 16 pellets but had to remove Joe’s right eye.
His medical costs were covered thanks to a surge in donations from the public in the aftermath of the senseless attack.
Joe will spend several weeks in foster care before officials determine whether he’s fit for adoption.
Two Sarnia men aged 19 and 20, are facing animal cruelty charges in connection with the case.
