They brought the two-month-old kitten inside and were shocked to see his body covered in scars and bite marks.

The San Jose animal shelter decided not to euthanize the kitten and instead contacted Nine Lives Foundation.

Veterinarian Monica Rudiger saw Smurf’s wounds and knew that the kitten had been used as bait to train dogs to fight.

The poor kitten’s spirit never broke, and that would go a long way in the recovery process. No one knew how long it’d take, but the Nine Lives Foundation was determined to do everything possible to help Smurf heal.

Hopefully they ended up finding those responsible for this terrible act and handed down the punishment they deserved. As for Smurf, he’d go on to a life where he’d never know abuse again. 🙂
