When Billy came to the shelter, he was so underweight that FAAS staff were extremely concerned about his ability to survive. This cute and friendly little Chihuahua was a sad little guy needing a lot of tender care and a lot of food. He received immediate veterinary care, and staff/volunteers took over to nurse him back to health. As his health improved, we began to get glimpses of his personality. He preferred to be carried rather than take walks; and being held in a lap was the best. Finally, after a few months, he was ready for adoption and found his new forever home with someone who will give him all the love he could possibly hope for.
It took awhile for Prince and Princess Charming to find Cinderella, but they finally arrived one day and took her home. Cinderella is an older cat, declawed, all black, and a bit shy – all qualities that sometimes make it harder to be adopted. But, she’s a patient kitty and enjoyed all the attention she received during her four month stay at the shelter. Just like in the real Cinderella fairy tale, our gal has gone off to live happily ever after.
