TINY – A1080696
Safe - 7-31-2016 Brooklyn
***SAFE 07/31/16*** POSSIBLY POISONED, BUT LANGUISHED AT THE ACC SINCE JULY 10TH! It’s probably a miracle that TINY is still alive, give how sick this 9-month-old KITTEN was when she arrived at the ACC all those days ago. It’s all there in her medical notes from the shelter, which are heartbreaking. She was also subject to a DOH hold for 10 days, allegedly for having bitten someone, which effectively kept her prisoner at the shelter and prevented her from getting the best medical care. Meanwhile that hold has now EXPIRED and the shelter has decided to kill her tomorrow by LETHAL INJECTION! This AVERAGE-rated girl has NOT been able to catch a break! Please advocate everywhere for her tonight, and find the FOSTER/ADOPTER who can finally save her life!
