PEPPERCORN – A1069695
Safe - 4-24-2016 Staten Island Rescue: Staten Island Hope Please honor your pledges: http://www.statenislandhoperescue.org/
**SAFE 04/24/16** EXQUISITE! That is one of a rush of adjectives that crowd one’s mind, once Peppercorn flashes onto one’s screen. This neutered 2-year-old panther has been at the ACC since arriving there as a stray on April 8th, and he managed to spend some time in the Adoption ward. According to a plea the ACC sent out before the At-Risk List, trying to drum up some interest in Peppercorn among the New Hope partners, this guy is “not thriving sitting in a cage.” Well, no kidding! Please read his very positive volunteer comments and then work hard to save Peppercorn, tonight! “A volunteer writes: Peppercorn does have a lot of “pepper” in him! He’s a bit upset with the world right now, and he’s also a bit fearful and tense. He does at times enjoy having his cheeks petted. Peppercorn would do best in the forever home of experienced cat parents where the environment is quiet and with no children. Given the opportunity and love Peppercorn so needs, he is bound to be a happy kitty one day soon.” This boy is INCREDIBLY fortunate to have been given a second chance from the ACC and this must not be wasted! Please make sure a foster/adopter steps up for Peppercorn tonight!
