ETHAN – A0987967
Urgent 10-1-2015 Brooklyn
**GONE 10/01/15** ETHAN needs a NEW HOPE rescue group tonight! This gentle boy was lucky enough to have been adopted from this shelter system once already, but was brought back because of “personal problems.” Ethan certainly remembers this house of horrors so it’s no surprise that he has not exactly embraced his return descent into hell….and that has earned him a NEW HOPE rating. This gorgeous tabby chap is NEUTERED and will probably be just fine once he is allowed to decompress in a FOSTER or ADOPTIVE home. Only a New Hope rescue group can pull him to safety, tonight!
