Safe - 8-1-2016 Manhattan Rescue: Staten Island Hope Please honor your pledges: http://www.statenislandhoperescue.org/
**SAFE 08/01/16** NEW HOPE RESCUE ONLY- Jacob is not handling shelter life too well since being brought here to the ACC because the former owner claimed that her son became allergic to him. His age is listed as 13 so how did the son suddenly become allergic? More like maybe the cat isn’t as much fun as he used to be, etc. They should hand out an excuse book to some owners so they know what to say when they dump their pet. Jacob is not a fan of the ACC workers and shows his displeasure by staying in his cage and not really cooperating for them. He just wants to go home where he knows he’ll be safe. He’s an older boy, a brown and white tabby who is very particular of who he likes and who he doesn’t. The assessor is on the DOESN’T list. He let out a little growl which is a no no there so he was given a New Hope Rating. Please help this older boy who just wants to go home and be himself again. Apply to a New Hope Partner tonight to save this senior’s life!
