KIA – A1033951
**SAFE 04/28/15** KIA is a spayed 12-year-old lady whose former owner definitely knew how to dole out the munchies; Kia pegged a 9/9 on her body conditioning score, which means this pretty girl is the very definition of “obese.” That same owner definitely did not know how important it was to Kia that she be able to stay with the family who loved her; that person dumped her at the ACC in the course of moving to new digs. Kia does not appreciate the change in circumstance, and because she is so rattled, she earned a New Hope rating from the shelter. This exceptional girl can only be saved by a New Hope rescue group, tonight!
