It is kept in immaculate condition free from odors of urine and feces. Shirley is an amazing person with the biggest of hearts. Her concern is for the animals first and foremost. I really like the fact that she is very picky about who she adopts out to. PLEASE find it in your heart ❤️ to donate her sanctuary. If anyone deserves the help she does.”
