ELSA – A1037840
**SAFE 06/15/15** Gentle ELSA has an aristocratic face and a wonderful AVERAGE rating, and had lived with her most recent family for less than a year before they decided they were “allergic” to her. This 7-year-old spayed sweetheart has lovely social notes and sounds like a perfectly charming companion. ELSA will make her new owners feel extremely lucky to have added her to their family, but she MUST find that new family tonight! Her time is up at the shelter, and they are counting down the minutes until they can kill her tomorrow afternoon. Please don’t let her story end at the hands of jaded municipal workers, for whom ELSA is nothing more than a disagreeable part of their day. Advocate strongly for ELSA, tonight!
