Safe - 9-7-2016 Manhattan
***SAFE 09/07/16 *** NO TIME FOR JASPER!!…..Adopted as a kitten and returned after two years JASPER and his brother TIGGER (not listed) are back at the ACC…..Their owner has moved into a studio apartment and says she now has no time or money to care for them….boo hoo. She’s not about to lose her life from a fatal injection tomorrow at noon…..JASPER is a bit on the shy and fearful side but it looks like his owner hardly spent any time with him and he would hide when she was around. He really needs a home that WANTS him and be assured this cat will blossom!! He is already NEUTERED. PLEASE CONSIDER BEING A TEMPURRARY OR PURRMANENT HOME FOR JASPER (and maybe TIGGER too)!!
