SNOWBALL – A1053068

*** SAFE 04/16/16 *** BETRAYED BEAUTY NEEDS NEW HOPE RESCUE TONIGHT! Whoever adopted Snowball from the shelter last November should probably have just gotten a stuffed animal, and saved everyone the drama. For one thing, the three young kids in the home are probably wondering where their kitty went, and of course they just learned something about how disposable pets are. Will that lesson carry over into how they approach parents and nursing homes? Hmmmm. Meanwhile, Snowball thought the people she loved, loved her back, but that relationship which should have been built to last, only ended up lasting 5 months. Snowball knows exactly WHERE she is, and exactly WHAT they do at the ACC, so it’s no surprise she’s grumpy and emotional. Snowball needs a foster/adoptive HERO to work with a New Hope rescue, TONIGHT, or this spayed lady will be killed by the ACC tomorrow.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
**Update 04/13/16** Snowball appears to be deteriorating in the shelter environment. She remains stiff and alert by the back of her kennel, and hisses when approached. She only allows brief petting, but quickly hisses and swats at the assessor. Due to her stress level we feel that placement into a stable home environment quickly is in her best interest. Behavior Determination: New Hope Only Snowball is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home. She has tried to swat 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.
