“I felt like she had given up.
The shelter people told me they found her in the street and she was afraid of everything.
They tried to dissuade me from adopting her.
She was days away from being euthanized.
This shelter put their animals down after only three days.
It was a high kill shelter with little resources.
I put a deposit on her so they wouldn’t put her down and told my boyfriend, who I lived with at the time, I wouldn’t take her back no matter how many problems she had.”
