JANESSA – A1036557
**SAFE 06/01/15** Janessa is a spayed 4-year-old sweetie who loved her former owners more than anything, even more than her toys. How did they repay that affection? Pretty much in the way you’d expect: they allowed her to endure a large wound on her right hind leg for who-knows-how-long, they watched her body struggle to heal that out and drop weight in the process, and when that got too boring? They brought her to the shelter because of “pet health.” Janessa has a super AVERAGE rating and has lived in a veritable petting zoo that included 6 dogs and a rabbit. You know this girl deserves WAY more than the horrible death she is scheduled for, tomorrow. Please advocate fiercely for JANESSA, tonight!
