The shelter in Greenville, South Carolina is full. This sweet baby may only have a few days left.
Mojito made the morning news last month on Fox Carolina during the 100 Cat Challenge. Despite her new-found fame, and her experience as a seasoned escape artist, this girl is overlooked time and time again.
More than 180 cats were adopted during the event, but this poor baby was left behind.
Please don't ignore her any longer. She may not last the weekend without rescue or adoption. She's already injured herself on the shelter cage. BTW, a twist tie would solve the escaping problem.

Please share this article with friends in rescue, foster or who are looking to adopt a special pet. Social media has saved millions of shelter pets. Let's do our part to be sure this baby gets the chance at a forever home.
Greenville County Pet Rescue on Facebook does an excellent job in listing dogs and cats in their care. Not only does the shelter take in strays and owner surrenders from the Greenville area, they also take in cats and dogs brought in by Spartanburg.
Greenville County Animal Care Services isn't allowed to turn an animal away for lack of space. This alone puts a cat or dog in danger, especially if it's an owner surrender, meaning the holding period as required by law doesn't apply.
The total number of dogs and cats taken into their facility runs around 20,000 per year. The heaviest turn-in period for cats is during kitten season.
When the shelter is full, dogs and cats may die, simply for lack of room to house them until a rescue or adoption can take place. It doesn't matter what age, as even puppies and kittens are at risk of being killed when there's nowhere to put them.
You can be part of the solution by having your cat or dog spayed or neutered, or by adopting from the shelter.
Not sure whether you want the responsibility of a pet? Then apply to foster a deserving dog or cat until a forever home can be found. Contact the shelter for more information on their foster programs.
