SAFE 04/15/15 FORMER DOG-LOVING CHARMER, DUMPED FOR PERSONAL PROBLEMS, IS PERFECTLY HEALTHY, BUT WILL DIE DUE TO HER FEAR – PLEASE GRANT BUTTONZ A DEATH ROW PARDON!!! Beautiful BUTTONZ, a 4-year-old white and brown tabby girl, finds herself betrayed and dumped in the kill-happy ACC due to PERSONAL PROBLEMS. At home, Buttonz “lived with a dog for a year and is very tolerant towards that dog. Buttonz likes to cuddle and (is) very playful with owner only. Her activity level is to a medium. She likes to follow owner around the house, be in same room as owner and sit on owner lap. She likes to spend most of her time on owner bed. Buttonz is confident, assertive, quiet and independent.” But this dear girl is TERRIFIED in the scary shelter, so the ACC PUNISHED her with New Hope Only and fast-tracked her to the noon kill list for tomorrow, despite the fact that Buttonz is PERFECTLY HEALTHY!
