***SAFE 07/21/17*** ASHES WAS GENTLE WITH CHILDREN AND AFFECTIONATE BUT THAT STILL DIDN’T HELP HER FROM GETTING THE BOOT WHEN A NEW BABY ARRIVED!! 12 year old ASHES was returned to the shelter because of a new baby in the home. She was adopted back in 2006 and lived her entire life with this one owner. They said she was friendly, playful, and affectionate. So why did they dump her?!! Of course she is upset and wondering what she did to deserve this abandonment. Ashes is spayed, and hoping for a new furever home where she will be able to live out her golden years. She is healthy and ready to go! MUST RESERVE BY NOON!!
