QUEENS – 17903
Safe - 1-12-2018 Brooklyn
SAFE 1/12/18 Queens and Lola were surrendered together with their other housemate (who was adopted!) because their owner was travelling for work and had no one to care for them. While they’re both very sweet, Lola is reportedly very shut down in Adoptions currently so we’d like to get her placement as quickly as possible to minimize her stress.
