TABBY – A1034089
**SAFE 04/27/15** Calling all New Hope rescue partners!! Tabby is an 8-month-old kitten who was found as a wee baby stray all those months ago. The person who found her was good enough to stand by her and raise her into a lovely young lady….but when that person was deployed into military service, no one else was available to step in and keep Tabby. This beautiful girl is extremely unhappy to have been torn from all that she loved, and that has played out as a New Hope rating. Please don’t allow a military deployment to be the death of this lovely kitten—work with a New Hope rescue partner to foster or adopt Tabby, tonight!
