Symba, a 35-pound ‘tubby tabby’ has found a new home through the Humane Rescue Alliance in D.C.
The rescue alliance wanted to find Symba an owner who was committed to helping to feline lose weight. Symba is 15 pounds over goal weight and can’t take more than a few steps without losing his breath, according to shelter staff.
“Symba’s new adopters are dedicated to getting him healthy by continuing on his current diet and exercise plan, and most importantly giving him the love and care he deserves so he can thrive long term. We’ll be rooting for you Symba,” the center said in a statement.
Symba’s old owner moved to an assisted living center which is why he had to surrender him to the alliance.
