SAFE 3/4/17 – Have you met our lovely sweetheart senior girl Constance? She’s quite a friendly lady and has no problem meeting new people. In fact, that’s how she was found! Though an owner may come forward to reclaim Constance, ACC would love to find her placement for after her hold – just in case! We’ve been asking ourselves who wouldn’t want such an adorable and attention-seeking kitty, and we’d love to help her find the perfect forever retirement home! Constance currently needs follow up medical care for her wound.
