"Hi guys, I'm new to Hope for Life Rescue and have had a very sad past. I was found wandering the streets pregnant and starving. I'm in a much better place now and am waiting on a new family to give me a second chance at life. If you think you can help nurse me back to health and love me forever, I would appreciate it!"

"I'm new to Hope for Life and have yet to show the staff my full personality. I was curious when Caitlin entered the cat haven but was a little offended when she reached out to pet me. I'm not afraid of people; I'm just not sure about them. I do have a sweet side once you give me a couple of scratches, but I will let you know when I'm finished. Check me out here!"
