GREY CLOUD – A1091453
Gone - 9-30-2016 Manhattan
***GONE 09/30/16***BACK TO THE DUMPER’S THAT MAKE THE ACC WHAT IT IS….AN OVERCROWDED, SHELTER THAT KILLS JUST FOR “SPACE!” Because GREY CLOUD IS basically healthy and no real reason for her(or any cat’s for that matter!)to be listed tonight! She has been DUMPED by an owner who didn’t care enough to find a pet- friendly dwelling, but sure didn’t mind leaving her off at the first HIGH KILL SHELTER along the way! GREY CLOUD may take a little time to warm up to you, but that’s to be expected of any shelter cat. She’s lived with kids her whole life, and has been with the previous owner since she was 4 months old. But never been around any other animals. She’s RESCUE ONLY so you will need to contact a New Hope rescue and offer to FOSTER OR ADOPT her! She’s ALREADY SPAYED and ready to go if you’ll just have her, with arms wide open, and a heart to match!
