Publicly Adoptable - Manhattan
***FOSTER CARE 07/27/17*** SWEET LOVEBUG PIXIE NEEDS A SPECIAL ADOPTER TONIGHT!! Pixie was in a foster home and was diagnosed with ringworm, so now she is on tonight’s list after being returned !!! The shelter wrote: Beginner Calico girl Pixie is the sweetest lovebug you will ever meet @MACC. Pixie came into ACC as a stray with several superficial scratch wounds on her face. She will require a special DOH release before leaving the shelter which consists of signing an Rabies Educational Handout.
PIXIE aka JOAN was returned by her “finder” who had released her into a cat colony but this cute one year old was getting picked on and attacked by the community cats there. She is only a grown kitten and needs a home where she can relax and enjoy being a house cat. She may have some allergies but does have a URI and needs rescue asap!
