DUSTY – A1052139
Urgent 9-28-2015 Brooklyn Rescue: Staten Island Hope Please honor your pledges: http://www.statenislandhoperescue.org/
**SAFE 09/28/15** SECOND CHANCE FOR DARLING DUSTY–MAKE IT COUNT! DUSTY is a 5-month-old baby girl who earned a rock solid AVERAGE rating from the shelter, which is a feat many older and wiser cats are unable to pull off. That speaks volumes about how poised this intelligent little charmer is! Dusty and her BFFs were brought into the shelter as strays, and a person might think highly adoptable kittens would be snapped right up….but that person would be wrong. The ACC might do a super job of pretending to be a warm-fuzzies kind of place, but what they have planned for DUSTY tomorrow will make anyone’s blood run cold. Please find a FOSTER or ADOPTER for this exceptional young lady, tonight!!

Notes: Please note that Dusty is being treated for an upper respiratory infection at the time of the behavior assessment. This condition may affect some of the behaviors shown during evaluation.
