BOOTS – A1050063
Urgent 9-19-2015 Manhattan
**GONE 09/19/15** BOOTS is a gentle NEUTERED boy who loves to sleep in windowsills, and who was afraid of the young child he used to live with. That kiddo would chase Boots and handle him roughly, but BOOTS never retaliated against that horrid treatment. Given as a gift to his former owner, tonight BOOTS has an AVERAGE rating, super volunteer comments, and needs a foster/adopter to save his life tonight! Please read his volunteer comments and then find a hero to step up for BOOTS: “A volunteer writes: He started out quiet but then he just woke up. The other day, yak, yak, he talked all morning. He wanted attention and someone to play with. He is friendly and happy and can’t wait to get out of the shelter and go home with you. He is a big guy with energy and he is affectionate too. What more can we ask for in life? Let him be your best friend and offer him companionship.”
