***SAFE 04/19/16*** BIG HANDSOME BOY IS CRYING OUT FOR HELP! This big hunk-o-love is Tuck. He’s just 6 years old, neutered, and ready for a new family! He was found in a drainage ditch in the Bronx as a baby, and now his ex-owner has dumped him off at the shelter because of “personal problems”! Can this poor baby not catch a break? And now to make matters worse, the ACC has listed him to DIE TOMORROW AT NOON because of a “possible urinary tract infection”. Most respectable vets would simply prescribe an antibiotic, but one must take what the “doctors” at the ACC say with a grain of salt. Tuck truly a gentle giant, and his story is heartbreaking. Could you be the one to turn it all around for him and show him what love is supposed to feel like? Please advocate for him TONIGHT! His last minutes are slipping away!
