BIG BEN – A1060253
Urgent 12-21-2015 Brooklyn Rescue: Staten Island Hope Please honor your pledges: http://www.statenislandhoperescue.org/
***SAFE 12/21/15*** BIG BEN IS IN NEED OF A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE BY THE TIME THE CLOCK STRIKES NOON SUNDAY – HE IS FELV POSITIVE AND NEEDS A RESCUE ANGEL NOW! BIG BEN is only 2 years old. He found his way into the shelter as a stray. His intake notes state he was healthy but after testing him for Felv, he tested POSITIVE and that gave them the green light to fast track him to tonight’s list. BIG BEN appreciated petting and attention and received an AVERAGE RATING. He needs a foster or adoptive home where he can be an only cat or live with other Felv cats or a dog. Felv is not a death sentence and just because a cat tests positive doesn’t mean they will be sick all the time. Felv cats can live long lives and never come down with the disease. PLEASE GIVE SWEET BIG BEN A CHANCE TO LIVE AND HAVE A HAPPY ENDING TO HIS STORY – HURRY AND CONTACT A RESCUE BEFORE HIS TIME RUNS OUT!
