Safe at home with Romeo and Juliet!

Because of your generous donations Romeo and Juliet, the beloved kitties of Jessica, are safe and sound back in the USA. Jessica doesn't have children but considers Romeo and Juliet her babies. When she needed to flee back to the USA to escape her violent husband the American Embassy would only give her a repatriation loan for her but not for her kitties. Juliet contacted us, and because of you, Jessica was able to get Romeo and Juliet back home safe with her.

Here is a note from Jessica: I am home happy and safe with Romeo & Juliet! They are my precious babies and because of you they are home with me away from the terrible abuse. When my husband would get mad at me he would throw my babies against the wall. There aren't words to thank you enough for helping us get home safely.
