Featured Success Story:
Could she be anymore adorable? Tia the torti-shell feline has a happy, forever home thanks to A4A. Once trying to survive as a stray all on her own, Tia was forced to dodge traffic, bullets, cruel humans who chased her and she had a hard time ever finding any food or shelter. She was terrified, lonely and seemed to have given up hope that a bright future might exist. Lucky for Tia- A4A stepped in and saved this adorable girl (and we feel so lucky to have met her too!). Even better? Tia was adopted into an amazing home! Since Tia’s adoption, Tia’s human family now volunteers regularly with A4A- helping with transports, as a volunteer foster home and with fundraisers. We are so happy to have Tia’s wonderful human family as a part of the A4A volunteer family!
