Owner Surrender

I am one of many Valley Animal Center adoptables that belong to “The Top 10.”  This list is a compilation of the top 10 reasons pet owners leave their furry family members behind in shelters across the country.  Many of these reasons are out of the control of animals like me, and are often avoidable on the part of the owner. In my case, when it came time for my family to relocate, I would not be coming along.  I have now watched several years pass by since I was left behind.  Now a senior at Valley Animal Center, it is hard to know what the future has in store for me.  Because of my age, I will wait much longer than I should for a new home.  For now, I don’t mind.  My days are spent relaxing in the sun, with all the pampering I can ask for!  I would love it if you would come to visit me, I’m a really sweet lap kitty!
