**SAFE 09/19/2017** Dog-friendly LILA was surrendered to the ACC because her former owner could not afford to care for her. Lila has a UTI, hematuria, and is already spayed. She is understandably wary of the shelter environment. This girl needs some more vet work, and a loving REAL home! Message [email protected] if YOU can provide that for LILA, tonight!
