(Myerstown) -- The last of 27 pets rescued from a homeless veteran's car in the midstate last month is now ready for a good home.

Dori, a four-month-old Persian kitten, has been at the Humane Society of Lebanon County since March 1st. That's when she and 23 other cats and three dogs were found in a car parked at the Lebanon VA Medical Center. 

The animals belonged to a veteran who lost her home and job and had checked herself into the hospital.

The other cats, all Persians and Siamese, and the three dogs, two cocker spaniels and a dachshund mix, were adopted. Dori's turn comes tomorrow.

A $200 fee will be applied to the adoption and will be donated to the Lebanon VA Medical Center.
