LOUIS LANE – A1084111
Safe - 8-11-2016 Manhattan Rescue: Happy Homes Please honor your pledges: http://www.happyhomesinc.org/
**SAFE 08/11/16**”The finder stated that the cat followed her and is unable to walk.” BEGINNER-rated LOUIS LANE was “unable to walk,” yet is SUCH A SWEETIE that he FOLLOWED the person who ultimately took him to the ACC! Read these medical notes and then MOVE QUICKLY to SAVE THIS KITTEN! He is injured, so the ACC is probably going to KILL HIM FIRST, TOMORROW! This exceptional boy can be adopted outright by anyone who is able to take care of his medical needs, OR he can be FOSTERED through a NEW HOPE rescue! In that scenario, the rescue takes care of the vet bills and the foster just loves on LOUIS LANE! Either way, please advocate fiercely for him tonight, because this BEGINNER-RATED BOY DESERVES TO LIVE!
