DIAMOND ROSE – A1049060
***GONE 08/27/15*** Poor DIAMOND ROSE! She hasn’t even been allowed to be placed for adoption because though her former owner, who turned her in due to ‘personal problems’ says shes wonderful with children and other cats, when DIAMOND ROSE met the assessor and realized this person was not going to help her get out of ACC, she hissed and became defensive. Now, most cats from a home will do this-DIAMOND ROSE is frightened and confused. She has no idea why she’s been left in a scary cage with the sound of other cats and dogs around her. She is frightened and because she was defensive, all her former owners words didn’t matter-DIAMOND ROSE was marked ‘rescue only’ which means only a rescue and someone agreeing to adopt her or foster her with that rescue can save this girls life. Why would you do this? You have other cats, a life, and where would you put her…do you wonder that? Well, a bathroom would be fine, or some rescues will lend you a crate for the new cat to adjust. And in a home, with kindness, gentleness, she will. But at ACC she will have her life ended tomorrow unless someone says ‘yes, I will save her’ and scoops up this little girl who’s been sadly betrayed. Don’t let her be stabbed with a needle and have her life drained away. Please see beyond the fear and help her. SAVE DIAMOND ROSE TONIGHT!!!!
