GLADYS – A1060227
Urgent 12-14-2015 Manhattan
***GONE 12/14/15** POOR GLADYS was DUMPED due to child conflict, however it seems that she was”tolerant ” of children in the home that were over the age of 5. It is likely an excuse the owner came up with to wipe their conscious clean! GLADYS was really only comfortable with her previous owner, and now she’s been left,high and dry and if no one can save her she will DIE! This 5 year old is RESCUE ONLY so she needs someone to offer to FOSTER or ADOPT her and contact a NEW HOPE RESCUE NOW! She’s got the sweetest little face and just needs a new owner who will love her like she’s really a part of the family….because you don’t just DUMP family members!
