Badges is a domestic long-hair kitten from an unwanted litter. She has spent most of her 10-week life with a volunteer from the Michigan Humane Society’s In-Home Heroes program. The In-Home Heroes Program has helped to save the lives of more than 2,000 pets.

Foster care was needed so Badges could reach two pounds; the minimum required to be treated, spayed, and adopted — and she’s in good company.

The Troy Police department will use Badges for therapeutic purposes and  public appearances.
