MARK – A1038506
*GONE* 06/06/15- Mark was picked up as a stray and brought into BACC. Mark is dehydrated and has some pretty bad ulcers in his mouth, which will require some follow up care. He has not eaten much since being brought into the shelter and can usually be found curled up on his blanket, but he does perk up a bit when you interact with him. He gently closes his eyes and leans in while you scratch under his chin! Please help this sweet guy get the TLC he needs, and pull Mark from BACC today!
