BELLE – A1057329
Urgent 11-13-2015 Manhattan
**GONE 11/13/15** BEAUTIFUL BELLE was a happy cat in a secure home for 3 years, that is until the family had a child who became allergic, and unfortunately BELLE was given up. BELLE is around 3 to 4 years old and is described as playful, mellow, independent and talkative, a great pet. Poor BELLE is sad and scared in the shelter so the people assessing her suggest she get fostered through New Hope Rescue. Since she was happy and affectionate in her previous home, she has the potential to return to her happy self. But time is running out for this gorgeous tuxedo girl! She will be killed tomorrow if she’s not rescued. She would be so grateful for a new home to give her the love she so needs and deserves. PLEASE RESCUE THIS SWEET GIRL TODAY!!!
