LUNA – A1029969
SAFE*****LOVELY LUNA WAS GIVEN THE BOOT BY SOMEONE IN THE HOUSEHOLD WHO WOULDN’T LET HER STAY- NOW SHE FACES DEATH TOMORROW!***** LUNA was found as a stray and taken in by a kind person but the head of that household said she must GO! Poor LUNA is SUPER FRIENDLY and sweet and got a great AVERAGE rating! A staff member writes: This little lady is on the bottom row of cages, so if she didn’t reach her paws out to get your attention you’d never notice her. I can tell right away how sweet she is because she didn’t even need to sniff me first, she just started rubbing her face all over my fingers. Within seconds, she was giving me kisses! Every time I tried to pull my hand back so I could leave, she would grab it with her little paws, kiss it, and rub her face all over. She’s such a sweet young lady. DON’T LET THIS GIRL BECOME A STATISTIC – HURRY AND CONTACT A RESCUE TO SAVE HER TONIGHT!
