06/23/2017 AT RISK MEMO
Matilda A1113636 is at risk for concerns that she is not thriving in the shelter environment, and a deterioration in behavior. She was noted as being suitable for an adopter with an average amount of experience when she arrived, but appears to be becoming increasingly frustrated with her long stay and is less tolerant of touch and handling than she was previously. We recommend that she move into a home environment.
