CELESTE – A1033390
***GONE 04/21/2015*** “VERY SOCIAL” SENIOR CUDDLER, DUMPED DUE TO SICK OWNER, GETS ALONG WITH KIDS, RABBITS AND LOVES PETTING, BUT NOW WILL DIE DUE TO HER FEAR – PLEASE GRANT CELESTE A DEATH ROW PARDON!!! My heart BREAKS for poor CELESTE! This ten-year-old gray senior lady was dumped into the kill-happy ACC when her old owner got TOO SICK to care for her. At home, Celeste was a delight: “Enjoys Petting, Uses a scratch post, Loves to cuddle and be picked up, Very social, Uses the litter box, Gets along with the children in the house and does not shy away from guests.” But poor Celeste is TERRIFIED in the scary shelter, so she was PUNISHED with New Hope Only and fast-tracked to tomorrow’s noon kill list. Celeste has an easily-treated kitty cold, but a sneeze and her fear should NOT be reasons to die! Celeste will revert back to her usual charming self once she’s out of the ACC hellhole. Please start RIGHT NOW to apply to foster or adopt betrayed senior CELESTE from the approved New Hope rescue groups! If you can’t save CELESTE yourself, please SHARE her sad story and PLEDGE for her rescue!
