CANDY – A1040315
***GONE 06/23/15*** CANDY IS A 9 YEAR OLD LADY WHO WAS DUMPED WHEN HER OWNER MOVED – SHE IS NOT HAPPY ABOUT THIS AND HER ANGER AND FEAR GOT HER A NEW HOPE RATING!! CANDY is an older spayed lady whose owner decided wasn’t worth finding a pet friendly home for. CANDY was said to have lived with children but was not fond of them – well we can only wonder why. BUT if you read further, it states she started going outside the litterbox and now the truth comes out. CANDY’s owner decided that rather than figuring out the reason behind this, or taking CANDY to a vet, dumping in the ACC would be less troublesome for her. CANDY got a NEW HOPE rating for her fear and this was her one way ticket to tonight’s euth list. CANDY needs someone who can give her a full vet checkup and a place where she can decompress and adjust. No house pet is going to love being abandoned and CANDY is no exception. GIVE THIS GIRL A DEATH ROW PARDON TONIGHT AND CONTACT A RESCUE TO PULL HER TO SAFETY!!
