SAPHYA – A1084055
Gone - 9-21-2016 Brooklyn
***GONE 09/21/16*** SAPHYA IS ONLY A YEAR OLD AND PRETTY HEALTHY…. SO WHY, OH, WHY IS SHE SLATED TO DIE? For starters, the adorable SPAYED SAPHYA, was given as a gift. This is a PERFECT example of why NOT to gift animals. After the shiny red bow is taken off and the kitten becomes a cat… people that really didn’t want a pet find any excuse to get rid of them! But these OWNERS weren’t even sharp picking their excuse. They just used the old “ALLERGIES” excuse and took it one step further by dumping her at a HIGH KILL SHELTER! EXPERIENCED new owners are needed to step up here! Say you will FOSTER OR ADOPT SAPHYA. Not because she’s a “gift” but the only gift will be the one you give to her by saving her life!!
