Gone - 10-2-2016 Manhattan
***GONE 10/02/16-NEW HOPE RESCUE ONLY***Forever thought he had a forever family until they loaded him into his carrier and dumped him at the ACC for NO TIME. He’s 10 years old and this is how they decide to treat him. His notes described him as friendly and affectionate with his former family. He thought he had it all but now he’s in the ACC’s house and they have given him a New Hope rating because he growled at the assessor. Who can blame him? He knows what goes on down the hall. Please help him by applying to a New Hope Partner to adopt or foster Forever tonight!
