***SAFE 06/25/15*** PURRING “FRIENDLY” YOUNG TABBY GIRL, DUMPED FOR “PERSONAL PROBLEMS”, HAS A CHARMING VOLUNTEER PLEA AND A NEAR-PERFECT BEHAVIOR RATING, BUT THE ACC WILL KILL HER ANYWAY – PLEASE GRANT SAGE A DEATH ROW PARDON!!! Sweet two-year-old gray tabby and white beauty SAGE finds herself stuffed into the ACC’s Death Camp for Kitties after her old owner had too many “PERSONAL PROBLEMS”. Now she faces death as the result of her ex-owner’s horrible decision! Cute-as-a-button Sage quickly caught the eye of an ACC volunteer, who lovingly writes: “Sage loves attention, to be petted, and she will roll and purr with delight! She lived with other cats and a dog, but Sage pretty much kept to herself, was friendly and independent, as described by her previous owner. Average cat parents (those who have had some experience with cats) would be most suitable cat parents for Sage. Do you have room in your home and heart for a real forever home for Sage?” Sage earned a near-perfect AVERAGE behavioral rating for her “RUBBING, ROLLING, AND PURRING”. Sadly, poor Sage caught the notorious ACC kitty cold, & the ACC prefers to KILL instead of CURE, despite the fact that kitty colds are easily and inexpensively treated! Sure enough, darling Sage will DIE at noon tomorrow. Please don’t let them silence her purrs forever! Start RIGHT NOW to apply to foster or adopt sensational tabby lovebug SAGE! if you can’t save SAGE yourself, please SHARE her sad story and PLEDGE for her rescue!
