MOMO – A1086862
Safe - 8-30-2016 Brooklyn
*** SAFE 08/30/16 ***To look at Momo’s photo is a difficult thing to do on so many levels. One; she looks totally lost and scared. Two; she looks she has not had the easiest life. Three; she looks like a golden girl (she is not, she is only 5). Four; she looks like she just lost her best friend. Momo came into the ACC as a stray so not much is known about her past. What we do know is that she is not happy and very scared in her new environment. Momo is in defense mode and wants nothing to do with anyone or anything. And for that kind of behavior they could not throw on the euth list fast enough. Momo needs to learn how to trust again, help her love life again. Without help she will surely die. Don’t let that happen.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Momo was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. Reaction to assessor: Momo was curled up in her litter box at the back of the kennel. Reaction when softly spoken to: Momo watches the assessor with wide eyes focused on all movements and doesn’t come forward. Reaction to cage door opening: Momo hisses and lowers her body. Reaction to touch: Momo hisses upon approach and leans away with wide eyes and flattened ears. She tolerates petting briefly then spits and moves away. Behavior Determination: New Hope Only Momo is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and may require further investigation before placement in a home. She is extremely fearful in the shelter environment and does not currently tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
