*** SAFE 11/13/15 *** RESCUED AT TWO MONTHS, ABANDONED AT EIGHT YEARS….VANILLA BEAN’S owner is moving to Europe and doesn’t want VANILLA BEAN along…so instead of trying to rehome her or bring her along, she dumps her at the ACC.

Ironically, VANILLA BEAN would greet her owner every time she came home but now will not come to the front of the cage…..This white lady is already SPAYED and just needs an understanding someone to give her the time, love and patience she needs so she can learn to love again…..PLEASE FIND ROOM IN YOUR HOME AND YOUR HEART FOR THIS ABANDONED LADY……CONTACT A NEW HOPE RESCUE AND APPLY TO FOSTER OR ADOPT HER NOW!!
