Helio was found as a stray and has spent the last 6 weeks in the shelter. He was transported to our vet this weekend, where he will be neutered and brought up to date on all vet care. Helio was very happy to start this new chapter in life. He was very playful with the volunteers and traveled great in the car. Helio will be arriving at his foster home in a few days. We will update his page once his foster mom learns more about him.
