**SAFE 09/25/15** Dylan needs a NEW HOPE rescue for a happy ending, tonight! This 3-year-old beauty was a HAPPY PET until her former family brought home a new baby. That stressed Dylan out and she began licking her tummy somewhat obsessively. She was tolerant of the child and lived with that kiddo for a year, but on 9/20 her former owners decided that “pet health” was a perfectly good reason to cut ties with Dylan, and bring her to the ACC. This FAMILY PET is UNDERSTANDABLY TERRIFIED at the shelter, and that has played out as a NEW HOPE rating. This cat does NOT need to die, she merely needs some TLC and a nice foster/adoptive home where she can settle back down. If YOU can foster or adopt DYLAN and want some assistance with the process of working with a New Hope rescue group, please message our help desk at [email protected] If you want to help Dylan but cannot foster/adopt, please pledge toward her care and share her far and wide, tonight!
