LUNA MAE – A1037089
**SAFE 05/29/15** Beautiful LUNA MAE is completely out of her element at the ACC, and she needs a NEW HOPE partner to save her life, tonight! She had lived with the same people for all 3 years of her life, and those folks told the shelter that it takes her a while to warm up to new folks. She is also known to have been an only pet, so the shelter environment is definitely NOT helping her show herself to her best advantage. Read her social history—this is a nice cat, a gentle and loving cat, when she just has enough time to feel safe. Her poor little heart will be racing a mile a minute when the euth technician comes for her tomorrow, which is why it is VITAL that a New Hope rescue group steps up for Luna Mae, tonight!
My name is LUNA MAE. My Animal ID # is A1037089.
I am a female cream domestic mh. The shelter thinks I am about 3 YEARS old.
I came in the shelter as a OWNER SUR on 05/21/2015 from NY 10466, owner surrender reason stated was MOVE2PRIVA.
