**SAFE 08/05/16** TIGER WAS DUMPED BY OWNER FOR “ALLERGIES.” NOW ONLY YOU AND A NEW HOPE RESCUE CAN SAVE HIM! TIGER is already NEUTERED and just a little over a year old. His former family has had him since he was a kitten and just NOW decided to dump him citing ALLERGIES as their excuse! He’s lived with kids ages 6, 7 and 14 but never around dogs or cats. But the fact that the folks at the ACC have branded him with a RESCUE ONLY rating is a bit if a head scratcher. He’s healthy, the family states no behavior problems, he’s lived with kids but for some reason, and no doubt just plain FEAR, this sweet guy is living up to the ACC’S standard if behavior. Offer to FOSTER OR ADOPT TIGER, contact a New Hope rescue and guaranteed it will be the best decision you ever MADE!
