LUZ – A1078201
Safe - 6-25-2016 Brooklyn Rescue: Staten Island Hope Please honor your pledges: http://www.statenislandhoperescue.org/
***SAFE 06/25/16*** INJURED and BEGINNER-RATED, LUZ is a total LUV! This 12-month-old kitten was found by some dude in his yard, and although LUZ couldn’t put any weight on his injured hind leg, he still managed to impress his finder with how friendly he was. One wonders f LUZ was taken to the ACC by an owner who couldn’t, or wouldn’t, deal with that fractured hind leg, or did this kitten really travel distances unknown to be found by someone? Any way you slice it, LUZ is scheduled to be killed tomorrow and that fracture means he could be the FIRST one taken into the euthanasia room. Since he’s got that perfect BEGINNER rating, LUZ can be reserved on the ACC website by someone who is willing to adopt him before 6pm on Saturday, and who can go the distance with him on his medical issues. Another option is to work with a NEW HOPE rescue to FOSTER him! That way, the rescue handles reasonable veterinary expenses while the foster owner concentrates on loving this guy back to health. Cats are famous for healing fractures well, so the future should be bright for LUZ if someone steps up for him tonight!
