Featured Success Story

Featured Success Story:

trio

This trio of rescue felines have something in common-- they were all rescued by A4A and all adopted together into the same home! Although the three felines were rescued from seperate situations, they were all fostered in the same home while at A4A and became great pals. All three felines were able to stay together and they have the happiest life imaginable thanks to their adopter, Melissa McFarland!
