HELP!!!! SWEET KATIE IS SHUTTING DOWN AT THE SHELTER!!!

HELP!!!! SWEET KATIE IS SHUTTING DOWN AT THE SHELTER!!!

Shutdown

Facebook Link to Katie Video

KATIE and 2 other cats who look just like her were turned into the shelter as strays. None of them are doing very well, but KATIE is suffering the most and eats very little food. She needs to get out of the shelter ASAP!!! We would love for her to be adopted and get into a loving, calm home where hopefully she will come out of her shell and start to eat and thrive.

PLEASE help us find a home for her!!!

Her next possible adoption day is Tuesday, 9-12-17.

My name is Melissa, and I am a Group Leader with Touchstone Crystal. I joined this amazing company a year and a half ago and love sharing the sparkle of Swarovski with people like you!

For those of you that are new to Touchstone Crystal, we are the direct sales division of Swarovski. Our pieces are hand set and coated in palladium and rhodium, which are members of the platinum precious metals group. We also have sterling silver pieces in our Little Black Dress collection. Over 50% of our pieces are under $50 making quality, stylish or classic jewelry affordable and fun!

I recently met Dawn Dulle at St. Charles City Animal Control when adopting an adorable dog and learned about Shelter Friends. Because I absolutely love their mission – saving every animal – I have decided to donate 20% of every purchase to Shelter Friends!

Please view the catalog and place orders from June 23-30 using this direct link.
