STITCH – A1066078
Gone - 3-3-2016 Manhattan
***GONE 03/03/16 *** MISUNDERSTOOD! Poor STITCH has lived his entire life with the same person, and that person never ONCE took him to a vet. It’s impossible to say what else that person did (or more likely, DIDN’T do) for Stitch, but it reads like it was just this guy, and that human, for nine years. When his behavior “changed” she didn’t have a vet look into it, she just brought him to the ACC and consented to his potential murder. STITCH deserves a checkup by a competent vet to see what’s up with him, he deserves a life with more enrichment than one person, and he deserves to LIVE! Please work with a NEW HOPE rescue if you can be the foster/adopter who makes that possible, tonight!
