SAFE 12/8/17 A volunteer writes, “Scarlet caught my attention as soon as I walked in the room. He’s a beautiful all-black boy with big green eyes that were pleading with me to stop and say hello. He came forward as soon as I opened the door and head butted my hand to rub his head. He also loves a good game with a streamer toy! Looks like he’ll be both an affectionate and playful new friend for you!”
