***GONE 08/29/15*** How many times will people continue to DUMP their pets because their new dwelling isn’t cat friendly? DARREN is in the midst of that hurricane and is,understandably NOT HAPPY! The 17 years young beauty, lived with her previous owner for 16 of her 17 years of her life. So when brought and left at the ACC,there is no reason that DARRIEN SHOULD BE HAPPY! And because of her fear and anxiety of being cooped up,is slapped with an RESCUE ONLY rating! She needs you to contact a NEW HOPE RESCUE NOW and offer to FOSTER or ADOPT her! She has MANY good years left. PLEASE see that she actually lives to see them!
