HORKOS – A1092959
Gone - 10-13-2016 Manhattan
**GONE 10/13/16*** HORKOS AND HIS BROTHER THANATOS – A1092960 (NOT LISTED) WERE DUMPED WHEN THEIR OWNER MOVED!! Why do people even get pets when they know they may have to move? And why do people move to non-pet friendly homes when there are plenty of places that accept pets? We get angry at the ACC for killing but the truth of the matter is that if this owner didn’t dump poor HORKOS and THANATOS at the shelter, they wouldn’t be in any danger now, would they? HORKOS is afraid and stressed because he doesn’t know why he is here and what he did to deserve the death penalty. HORKOS lived with children 5 and 7 years old and was affectionate and playful with them. How do you think these kids feel losing their pets? He also loved to play with his brother THANATOS. Now he is caged apart from the only people he loves and was punished with a NEW HOPE rating because after giving the assessor’s fake hand some head-butts, he hissed and became agitated. Can you blame him? He is acting like a cat who is upset. PLEASE GIVE HORKOS A HAPPY ENDING TO HIS STORY. OFFER TO FOSTER OR ADOPT HIM AND ALSO HIS BROTHER WHO IS NOT LISTED YET. THESE TWO SIBLINGS DESERVE TO BE IN A FUREVER HOME. CONTACT A RESCUE NOW TO PULL THEM TO SAFETY!!!
