Since she was not chipped, the Dumb Friends League will hold her for five days so, if there is one, a pet parent can come claim her. If one isn’t located in that time, though, she’ll be made available for adoption.

Trooper Thorne, they hear, is interested in adopting her, so they’re giving me first dibs to see if he’s a good match.
