From Sophia's current caretaker:
I was found as a stray by MDAS (Miami-Dade Animal Services) and rescued by a Good Samaritan. After being treated by a vet, I'm a happy girl. My foster mom is a nice lady who gives me hugs and kisses and tells me how beautiful I am, even without my eye. I’m ready for that furever family—the family I've never had.
