VALLANCE – A1091628
Gone - 10-5-2016 Brooklyn
***DIED 10/05/16*** BEGINNER SWEETHEART VALLANCE IS A SENIOR KITTY WHO NEEDS A HERO TONIGHT! VALLANCE found his way into the shelter as a stray. He is already neutered so that tells us he may be an abandoned pet. Why? Well VALLANCE has a few medical issues which need a full vet evaluation since the ACC is not sure what is actually wrong. They have said they suspect hyperthyroidism because he is a skinny cat – but then they said a bunch of other issues too which need to be ruled out. Or maybe VALLANCE is just a very hungry kitty that needs a good home and a good owner to take him to the vet to get him well. Either way, the ACC is planning his death at noon tomorrow. VALLANCE was purring and head-butting and was said to be VERY affectionate. This sweet guy certainly deserves a chance for a home and a happy ending to his story. WHY NOT OFFER TO ADOPT VALLANCE TONIGHT AND GIVE HIM A FUREVER HOME TONIGHT? EMAIL THE HELP DESK AT [email protected] FOR RESCUE INFO.
