***GONE 08/19/16***MAGNIFICENT MARGO–HEALTHY HOUSE CAT BETRAYED BY HER FAMILY–NEEDS YOU! Sad sigh! Margo is a stunning, seven year old, spayed & healthy gal who lived with her former family since kittenhood only to be dumped back at the shelter seven years later due to the BS “allergies” excuse. Margo is a lovely torbie medium haired gal who is described as mellow and affectionate. She is well-mannered, playful and used to living with people. She is naturally confused by being dumped by the people whom she trusted so is not happy at the shelter. Even though she is healthy and domesticated, she is slated to become another sad ACC stat when tomorrow afternoon rolls around due to not taking kindly to her behavior assessor. We know Margo will decompress and chill once she is out of the shelter and feels safe and secure. Please give her that chance by offering to foster or adopt. Contact a New Hope rescue who can help with transportation. Email our help desk if you have any questions–[email protected] Please don’t let her former owners’ disregard and irresponsibility cost this lovely lady her precious life. Make the call for magnificent Margo NOW! Save a life. Make a difference.

She seems to not be thriving in this environment and at the time of the assessment she was displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room. Margo may require further investigation before placement in a home. She is extremely fearful and currently does not tolerate petting or handling.
