***SAFE 07/12/16***RARE THIRD APPEARANCE ON THE EUTH LIST FOR RUTABAGA! WILL THE THIRD TIME BE THE CHARM?? THIS HANDSOME SIAMESE BOY HAS A PHOTO!! That’s right, this 5-year-old stray (with a “groomed” coat) is the latest in a string of cats to be so unimportant to the ACC, they didn’t bother taking a picture of him. OUTRAGEOUS! The ACC who claims to be the “Animal CARE Center” certainly behaves like they should take out the second word or substitute it with “UNCARING”. RUTABAGA is about 5 years old and was brought into the shelter as a stray. Most likely he is a very lost pet or abandoned one. RUTABAGA is also very upset at being in the ACC and who could blame him. All the shelter did for him was NOTHING but warehouse him til his stray hold was up and held him aside for the euth list. NOW RUTABAGA HAS ANOTHER CHANCE TO ESCAPE HIS DOOM TOMORROW. WHO WILL BE HIS HERO TONIGHT? HE IS PUNISHED WITH A NEW HOPE RATING WHICH MEANS YOU MUST CONTACT A NEW HOPE RESCUE TO SAVE HIS LIFE. DON’T WAIT – THE ACC DOESN’T WAIT FOR ANYONE – AT NOON HE MAY BE THE FIRST TO BE WHEELED DOWN THE HALLWAY TO THE EUTH ROOM. PLEASE EMAIL THE HELP DESK AT [email protected] NOW FOR RESCUE CONTACT INFO.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Rutabaga was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. Reaction to assessor: Rutabaga arches her back and hisses loudly as soon as you approach the kennel. Reaction when softly spoken to: Rutabaga continues to hiss in a defensive posture. Reaction to cage door opening: Rutabaga is alert. Reaction to touch: Rutabaga flattens his ears and continues to hiss with an arched back as you approach. He swats, bites and currently doesn’t allow any handling at this time. Behavior Determination: New Hope Only Rutabaga s displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and may require further investigation before placement in a home. He has tried to swat, bite 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.
