An elderly woman, no longer able to care for her 20-year-old cat, cried as she surrendered Snow to PAWS (Public Animal Welfare Services) in Rome, Georgia on Monday. A volunteer was at the shelter as the heartbreaking separation brought tears to even the most stoic; in a rocking chair she gently tried to comfort Snow.
“His elderly mama just had to surrender him to AC because she has to move and she cannot take them with her. She cried and cried and so did everyone else,” the shelter posted on their Facebook page of the Rome Floyd Humane Society, helping to find a home for Snow and his bonded companion Macy.
Snow is described as a very sweet cat who has been neutered and has had veterinarian care. Tragically along with Snow, Macy was also surrendered. He is a small 14-year-old terrier, and if the two can be placed together, surely it would make their world a little more comforting and not nearly as lonely.
Please note, according to the Rome Floyd Humane Society, all options are being examined to allow the owner to keep Snow. Both the cat and the dog are currently at the PAWS Animal Control, located at 99 North Ave in Rome, Georgia. RFHS is a community resource for education, assistance for low income families, and are able to offer assistance when needed.
