TIFFANY – A1031029
*SAFE 7/18/15 A staff member writes: Tiffany came in as an owner surrender because pets weren’t welcome in their new home. She’s used to just living with two people, the noise of the shelter is a little overwhelming for her. She definitely wants attention, and leans in head rubs for more love, though she wants the attention at her own pace. She would appreciate someone who will take it nice and slow with her as she gets comfortable in her new home.
