She’s a little on the quiet side, but with some gentle encouragement Bella is open to receive affection; she is very submissive and even accepts belly rubs and will roll over at your feet to get them 🙂 … she’ll let you know when she wants more with the delicate batting of her soft white paws. Bella came to the shelter along with her friend, Tigger, and we hope to adopt them together as a bonded pair, and what a delightful pair they are! Do you think you could be the one to let Bella and Tigger melt your heart? If so, please let us know by filling out an online application form.
***In order to protect the health of our staff, volunteers and members of the public during the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve made changes to our adoption process.
