BUTCH – A1070457
Safe - 4-24-2016 Staten Island Rescue: Staten Island Hope Please honor your pledges: http://www.statenislandhoperescue.org/
**SAFE 04/24/16**SECOND CHANCE FOR BODACIOUS BUTCH!!….LAP CAT! That’s right, cushy BUTCH was “usually found sitting on her previous owners lap,” according to HIS surrender notes—yeah, the ACC screwed the gender up in their notes, what else is new? BUTCH is a NEUTERED 5-year-old boy who was an indoors-only cat, a cat who hid when he felt uncertain and scratched the rug because he didn’t have anything else. There is nowhere to hide at the ACC, and the next person who lifts Butch out of his cage could very well be the same person who is going to kill him. Why? Why should this shy, sweet boy be brutally murdered, simply because his former owner decided their “personal problems” outweighed Butch’s desire to live? This boy can be adopted by someone who reserves him online tonight, he can be foster/adopted through a New Hope rescue group, but all of that good stuff has got to happen TONIGHT! Tomorrow after lunch, it will be too late. Advocate widely for Butch, tonight!
