***SAFE 04/14/2016*** Get a good look at this handsome, curious face. It will be GONE TOMORROW AT NOON. Marquiz is a big handsome 3 year old boy. After being ripped from the only home he’s ever known because of his ex-owner’s child suddenly developing allergies, he’s been dumped off at the shelter and left to DIE! At home Marquiz would be busy playing with hiis favorite laser toy or perhaps causing some mischief because this boy knows how to open door knobs! But that’s all a thing of the past, because he’s now been shoved into a cold hard cage at the ACC. Marquiz is stressed out in the shelter environment, and because of this needs a NEW HOPE RESCUE to pull him out of harms way. Please contact a New Hope partner and offer to FOSTER/ADOPT him right now!
