*** SAFE 03/07/16 *** MUFFIN WAS LEFT BEHIND WHEN HER FAMILY MOVED – NOW THIS PRETTY CALICO GIRL WILL END UP IN THE HANDS OF THE EUTH TECH AT NOON IF SHE IS NOT RESCUED NOW!! MUFFIN was given as a gift to her ex-family. She is 4 years old and lived with them all her young life. Now that they decided to move to a non-pet friendly apartment, MUFFIN got the boot, and landed on tonight’s euth list even though SHE IS NOT SICK! You see, MUFFIN is one smart lady, and she knows that the ACC does not have her best interests at heart. MUFFIN’s owner said she prefers the company of females and was affectionate to the daughter in the family but not the son. Hmmm we do wonder about that one, but needless to say, MUFFIN needs rescue NOW or she will be taken to a cold room and euthanized by total strangers tomorrow afternoon. GIVE MUFFIN A CHANCE FOR A HOME AND A HAPPILY EVER AFTER – CONTACT A RESCUE NOW TO SAVE HER. EMAIL [email protected] IF YOU NEED RESCUE INFO!!
