***SAFE 06/05/16*** CALLING ALL NEW HOPE ANGELS! SMOKEY is a handsome 2 year old NEUTERED chap. He was dumped off at the shelter because his owner got sick and couldn’t take care of him any more, and he wants everyone to know he is not happy about it. Smokey is terrified and stressed in the shelter. Can you really blame him? One minute he’s at home, eating his favorite foods and playing with his toys. The next he’s being shoved into a cold cage, surrounded by the cries of other animals. He’s missing his purr-son, and doesn’t understand what’s happened to him. Cats like Smokey will often shine after being placed in a relaxed home environment, and given some time to decompress. The ACC wants to KILL HIM TOMORROW AT NOON FOR HIS FEAR! Smokey needs a NEW HOPE RESCUE to save his life. If you’d like to offer to FOSTER/ADOPT him, please contact the Help Desk at [email protected] to begin working with a New Hope partner RIGHT NOW! Don’t let Smokey die alone and afraid. Please step up for him tonight!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Our enrichment facilitator has interacted with Smokey and at the time he was at the back of the cage. Smokey hisses and growls. He did not allow any contact. Will strike when near. Tail curled up. Reaction to assessor: Smokey was watching the assessor calmly from his bed When spoken quietly: Smokey continues to watch the assessor calmly Reaction to door cage opening: Smokey starts to growl loudly Reaction to touch: Smokey growls, strikes and does not allows petting at all Try picking cat up: Did not attempt to pick up Smokey due to fractious behavior Behavior Determination: NewHope Smokey was brought to the care center as a stray so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies previous to what we are seeing during the evaluation. Smokey seems to not be thriving in this environment and at the time of the assessment he was displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room. Smokey may require further investigation before placement in a home. He 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.
