D.C. Adoptable Animals: Not Perfect, But Perfectly Lovable (PHOTOS)


WASHINGTON -- Second Chance needs a second chance. The affectionate seven-month-old kitten came into the Washington Animal Rescue League with a broken leg that needed to be amputated. The little guy is now recovered and looking for a family to bring him home.

Two-year-old Zale has Feline Immuno-deficiency Virus. 12-year-old pup Adelia is on the older side of life. Two-month-old kitten Petunia has an eye infection that is in the process of healing.

Most of the gorgeous fluffballs -- mostly cats -- in this week's mix have some trait that makes them hard to place in new adoptive homes. What all these animals have in abundance is affection and love to give a new owner.

Take a look -- and let us know if you bring one of these babies home!
