HEATHER – A1068764
Safe - 4-3-2016 Staten Island Rescue: Staten Island Hope Please honor your pledges: http://www.statenislandhoperescue.org/
***SAFE 04/03/16*** DESCRIBED AS FRIENDLY, AFFECTIONATE, PLAYFUL AND VOCAL BY HER FORMER OWNER, HEATHER WAS SHOVED INTO THE INTAKE CARRIER CLAWING AND BITING THE BARS … because of an owner who has “personal problems”! That’s just plain sad! Who could watch their cat cry and meow as they walked away? She’s just a year old and to make matters worse, HEATHER is RESCUE ONLY because she was withdrawn and hissed at the assessor! Please contact a NEW HOPE Rescue and offer to FOSTER OR ADOPT this kitten. Or the last thing she will do is die of a broken heart before the ACC tech can stick a lethal injection into her veins. Email [email protected] for rescue info now!
