*** SAFE 06/05/16 *** SECOND CHANCE TONIGHT FOR JUNIOR! LET’S MAKE IT COUNT!! OUTRAGEOUS! In this Olympic year, the ACC seems to be going for the gold in the category of “Crappiest Biography,” and they are pretty much the guaranteed winners. Who is the loser in this scenario? Poor JUNIOR, who not only is the ONE pet from his entire group who was too rattled to be available on the adoptions ward, but he also doesn’t even have his own “Pet Profile Memo” in his biography! That’s right, the ACC slapped him with a New Hope rating and has made plans to kill him tomorrow, but are they even giving any relevant clues about his behavior in the Pet Profile Memo section? NO! They go on and on about another cat from his group, Nike, but NOTHING is said in that section about JUNIOR. Oh, and speaking of gold medal qualities, another reason his shelter notes are so CRAPTASTIC is that the surrender reason is listed as “NEW BABY” while right below that, the shelter tells us his former owner DIED! It’s no wonder they can’t get cats adopted, if they can’t even adequately pick options from a drop down menu on a computerized surrender form, or bother to proofread their own notes. The ACC is an EMBARRASSMENT in the way they treat these cats, but even so, they will manage to kill JUNIOR tomorrow with no problem whatsoever. This guy deserves BETTER! Find a NEW HOPE rescue to step up for him, RIGHT NOW!
