**SAFE 06/10/16** NEW HOPE ANGEL NEEDED FOR SENIOR GAL! SAM is a 13 year old SPAYED gray and white tiger lady. She was dropped off at the shelter just 4 days ago. Just 4 days ago! Sam was adopted out from the ACC a while back, and found her way back after her owner died. These monsters are hardly given this senior lady a chance! Not only has her entire world been turned upside down, but she has a cold and she’s not feeling well. Just 4 days ago, she was at home snuggled up in her favorite spot. Now she’s been crammed into a cage, and she doesn’t understand where her purr-son is. But because she is afraid, the ACC would rather save themselves the effort of giving her a chance to find a new family and simply KILL HER AT NOON TOMORROW and wash their hands of her! Disgusting!! Sam needs to find a new friend FAST! Once placed back into a relaxed home environment and treated for her cold, she will surely show you the true kitty inside! This beautiful girl needs a NEW HOPE RESCUE to pull her to safety. If you’d like to offer Sam the chance at living out her golden years where she is loved and doted on, as the ACC is so adamant on denying her of, please contact the Help Desk at [email protected] with an offer to FOSTER/ADOPT her! The Help Desk will assist you with working with a New Hope partner to save her, but it must be done quickly! Sam will DIE AT NOON TOMORROW if no one steps up for her! ACT NOW!

06/07/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Please note that Sam is being treated for an upper respiratory infection at the time of the behavior assessment. This condition may affect some of the behaviors shown during evaluation. Reaction to assessor: Sam was hiding when I approach cage When spoken quietly: Sam continues to hide Reaction to door cage opening: Sam inches back Reaction to touch: Sam growls, hisses, strikes and does not allows petting at all Try picking cat up: Did not attempt Behavior Determination: NewHope Sam seems to not be thriving in this environment and at the time of the assessment she was displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and may require further investigation before placement in a home. She is extremely fearful and currently does not tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
