Nathan was one of Pet Friends' forever residents. He was with us until his death last year from kidney failure. Unfortunately, he never got his forever family. He represents what we do as a no-kill shelter: animals that we take in are cared for until they are adopted or reach the end of their life, due to illness or old age. Photos provided by Pet Friends.
