APPALACHIA – A1052623
Urgent 10-1-2015 Manhattan
**GONE 10/01/15** NEW HOPE RESCUE needed for beautiful APPALACHIA, tonight! This NEUTERED young boy is almost certainly someone’s lost pet, and his coat gleams with good health. This smart 3-year-old took one look at his surroundings, went “this is for the birds,” and promptly decided the shelter staff were out to get him. To be fair, they ARE out to get him, and tomorrow it will actually be the deadly euth technician who will be the last person to remove APPALACHIA from his cage. This is almost certainly a lovely boy who is just too freaked out by the ACC environment, to put his best foot forward. Only a New Hope rescue can pull APPALACHIA to safety, tonight!

Reaction to touch: Appalachia does not allow the stroke, but sniffs the assessor’s hand then swats with no claws to avoid contact. Placement determination: NH ONLY Appalachia is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room. He is stressed in the shelter environment and does not currently tolerate petting. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
