Gone - 9-10-2016 Brooklyn
***GONE 09/10/16*** ASTEROID AND BUDDD PONG A1088754 (NOT AN URGENT PODR CAT) WANDERING INTO THE FINDER’S APARTMENT… THEN SHE, “WANDERED” ON OVER TO THE ACC WITH THE BOTH OF THEM! He’s claimed as a stray but is already NEUTERED and at just 4 years of age is in need of a FOSTER OR ADOPTER! His fear has given him a RESCUE ONLY RATING! So for ASTEROID, time is not on his side! Contact a New Hope rescue and offer to take this guy in. And you’ll be saving a life in the process!
