Update: Sudan Cats

Mosby is ready to go to his forever home!
 ACR is thrilled to announce that the first cat we helped rescue from Sudan has been adopted!  We introduced Mosby back in August, and one of our volunteers has fallen in love with him and decided to adopt him.

Hanah is a recent transplant to Maryland.  Her husband is in the military, and they have 3 other cats. The first day she came in, she told me that she had a feeling she would end up taking Mosby home.  They bonded quickly, and after a few weeks she decided that Mosby would make a great addition to her house. 

We also wanted to introduce another one of the cats rescued from Sudan: Little M.

Little M headbutting my
hand for attention!

Little M is quickly making friends with everyone at ACR and at the Brentwood Animal Hospital, who we work with.

She is a all black, except for one patch of white on her chest.  She can act shy, but as soon as she realizes you want to pet her, she starts headbutting your hand.  She is also a HUGE fan of feather toys!

We are hoping that the perfect home comes along for her soon.

If you want to help ACR continue to help cats like Mosby and Little M, please consider sending a donation.  Without your help, we cannot save the lives of the cats who need us!
