Urgent 12-22-2015 Staten Island
*** SAFE 12/22/15 *** THE FANTASTIC FOURSOME OF AVA, LILLY, STRIPES & BRIANA CAME TO THE ACC BECAUSE THEIR OWNER DECIDED THEY HAD TOO MANY PETS!! And now the ACC has decided that because one of the cats in the group had ringworm they should all be treated as if they have it even it they don’t!! All four cats are about 2 years old and in the case of STRIPES, just a little under. Three of them are AVERAGE rated except for BRIANA who has an EXPERIENCE rating because she is having a little more difficulty at the shelter. Since none of them are fixed, the act of negligence on the part of the former owner may cost them their lives!! PLEASE HELP THESE FOUR LOVELIES SURVIVE TOMORROW & APPLY TO FOSTER OR ADOPT NOW!! THEY DESERVE TO LIVE FOR CHRISTMAS!!
