***SAFE 09/20/16***HERBIE RIDES AGAIN—BEGINNER CREAMSICLE READY TO “STAR” IN HOME MOVIE FEATURING YOU! Sad sigh! Let’s come out and say it! Herbie’s former owner is a real a**hole! After all, what loving pet owner would surrender a long time, loving family member like Herbie to a kill shelter–after the faithful feline friend was a great companion since he was a few weeks old? Herbie’s ex-owner, that’s who–after deciding to move and not take him along. Not only was 13 yo Herbie a great pal to his former purrson, he lived peacefully with 12 other cats and a couple of Chihuahuas. Wonder if the dogs got dumped at the shelter, too! Herbie is a total package–super kind, loving, sweet, gentle and even, playful. Sounds like he needs follow up vet care for some dental issues but this is a great, loving boy who deserves a new “leash” on life. Let’s do everything we can to make sure this sweet creamsicle finds his loving retirement home. Please be Herbie’s hero by offering to foster or adopt. Don’t forget when you foster, all reasonable medical expenses are covered. Email our help desk and we will help you be Herbie’s hero–[email protected] Herbie is a lovebug! Let’s do everything we can to make sure this beginner creamsicle leaves the shelter through the FRONT DOOR! Make the call for his delish boy NOW!!!
