Tales of Survival – Jules, kitten with an enlarged heart

Jules was found as a stray walking the streets of Los Angeles. A Good Samaritan brought him to a local shelter.

Best Friends Animal Society Los Angeles pulled him from the shelter and provided him medical care, noticing immediately that something was wrong. He was later taken to a cardiologist where he was diagnosed with four separate, congenital heart defects, including an enlarged heart.

Eight months after his rescue, Jules continues to defy the odds by being happy and healthy. Now, he is looking for his forever home, preferably a home with a dog. To adopt Jules go to 

Best Friends Animal Society Los Angeles is working collaboratively with animal rescue groups, city shelters and passionate individuals who are all dedicated to the mission of making Los Angeles a no-kill city.

As part of this mission, Best Friends hosts adoption and fundraising events, runs the Best Friends Pet Adoption & Spay Neuter Center in Mission Hills, and leads the NKLA initiative.
