VALENTINE – A0748586
Urgent 9-15-2015 Brooklyn Rescue: Anjellicle Cats Rescue Please honor your pledges: http://bit.ly/ValentineA0748586
**SAFE 09/15/15** VALENTINE is a spayed sweetie who was adopted from the ACC once already, and must have thought she was home for keeps. That was until her former owner randomly decided they were “allergic” to her, after she spent years of her life being tolerant of young children and generally being a perfect pet. Tonight, Valentine misses the people she loves, even if they don’t miss her. Their faces will be the last, panic-stricken thing she thinks about as she is given a lethal injection tomorrow, which is why it’s vital to find a foster/adopter for her, tonight!
