SAMANTHA – A1081920
Gone - 7-22-2016 Brooklyn
*** GONE 07/22/16 *** SICKENING! The ACC doesn’t know how old SAMANTHA is, but even they aren’t able to overlook the ULCERATED MAMMARY TUMOR this poor girl has! Speaking of which, that’s why the people who were GIFTED Samantha a couple years back, decided to take her to the ACC—-they KNEW she had that tumor, they had never taken her to a vet, and they weren’t about to start on July 19th. SAMANTHA is NOT HAPPY about being the rock bottom priority of everyone’s list, she is NOT HAPPY about having been dumped at the shelter, and she is probably NOT HAPPY about her undercarriage being bloody and painful. This precious girl needs to be pulled by a NEW HOPE rescue, who will foot the bill for any reasonable vet expenses IF someone reliable is willing to foster/adopt her. Please make sure SAMANTHA gets what she needs—advocate extensively for SAMANTHA tonight!
