Also, Discrimination Laws refer to Art in Employment ads as well as copy ie: no white male under the age of 40 can be depicted in an employment ad all by himself.

Hi, I’m Rye! I am the sweetest old lady anyone could ask for. I prefer the finer things in life, including high quality food, a warm bed, and a hearth to curl up next to. I love meeting new people and I melt the hearts of anyone that comes in contact with me. I have done well living with dogs in the past and meeting them at the shelter, but I prefer low-key friends like myself. I do have allergies and will require a daily dose of Apoquel for the rest of my life. Apoquel will keep me healthy and happy but it is on the pricey side and will cost roughly $40 per month. The shelter staff are currently investigating a few other underlying health conditions and we will hopefully have more answers soon.
