Had to share! Yesterday's last adoption of the day featured the lovely Lita (now Dakota), and what a story!

During their Meet & Greet, Dakota's shyness and trepidation gave way to love and trust~she instantly settled onto Mom's lap, claiming her person.

Featured Pet Hope came to the shelter covered in sores, requiring a foster home. In the care of a Humane Society employee, dear Hope healed, and she’s now ready to start her life anew!

In a quieter home with cat savvy folks (no children please), this wallflower will blossom into the lap warmer we’ve all come to know and love. She’ll also do best in a single pet household, wanting you all for herself! In addition, this 6-years-young little miss only eats dry and canned food from Hill’s Prescription Diet C/D for urinary tract health at present. Please look into your heart, and if able, give the gift of a second chance! #495316
