DYLAN – A1083234
Safe - 8-9-2016 Manhattan Rescue: Happy Homes Please honor your pledges: http://www.happyhomesinc.org/
**SAFE 08/09/16** “They’re better off indoors than outdoors” was the pompous judgement of whoever “found” these five kittens in the Bronx….if the word “find” can be stretched to mean “lured into a carrier with food.” Really? That whole scenario stinks, and one wonders how the “finder” or “trapper” or “former owner” KNEW that DEMI, DEAN, DUSTIN, DYLAN and DOMINIC were SIBLINGS? There’s definitely more to this story than anyone will ever know, but what’s known so far is BAD ENOUGH! Indoors isn’t going to be a terribly SAFE place for those babies when the EUTH TECHNICIAN takes them to the kill room tomorrow, now, is it? Please do NOT let this entire crew be snuffed out in the space of a few awful minutes! Advocate relentlessly for EXPERIENCE-rated DEMI, DEAN, DUSTIN, DYLAN and DOMINIC, tonight!

07/29/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
07/29/16 17:28 Dominic A1083233, Dylan A1083234, Dean A1083235, Dustin A1083236 & Demi A1083237 are siblings who were lured into a carrier with food by the finder who found them in their neighborhood earlier today in the Bronx. They stated they’re better off indoors than outside. They aren’t able/willing to keep them themselves. The litter appear to be feral as during intake they; Dominic, Dylan, Dean, Dustin & Demi did not allow handling. They will flee, Dean will charge, bite, hiss, growl and scratch to get away. Due to these reasons we were unable to collar them or take their pictures on the backdrop. They’d rather be left alone to eat in the back of the kennel and or behind their litter box.
No Web Memo
