***SAFE 09/21/16***KIND, BEAUTIFUL AND GENTLE TINKERBELL READY TO BE YOUR FUREVER FRIEND! Tinkerbell is an eight year old, spayed and loving girl who would make a purrfect companion to a lucky purrson. This gentle sweetheart lost her home due to her former owner’s “allergy” excuse. She is middle-aged with a lot of life and love left in her that she would LOVE to share with YOU. Even the ACC noted how kind and sweet Tinkerbell is–noting how calm and docile she is while accepting pets. Let’s do everything we can to advocate for her precious life tonight. Please offer to foster or adopt this darling girl. Email our help desk and we will help you through the easy peasy process–[email protected] Transportation is available. Tinkerbell is dying to meet her new purrson. We can’t let her die tomorrow. Please make this highly adoptable and affectionate girl yours by making the call for her NOW!!!
