CLOVER – A1087642
Safe - 9-1-2016 Brooklyn
***SAFE 09/01/2016***Senior Tortie needs some TLC – She’s a 15 year old gal brought in as a stray. She was found to have various medical conditions that a competent vet could help her with but the ACC doesn’t like to waste money especially on their geriatric population. They put her on the TBD list without batting an eye. She needs someone that can open up their heart and home to her and give her a place to call home. Please be that person by applying to adopt or foster this cat named Clover tonight!
