PUMPKIN – A1050735
Urgent 9-18-2015 Staten Island
**SAFE 09/18/15** NEW HOPE RATING FOR A SCARED, GOOD BOY! PUMPKIN is a NEUTERED 5-year-old boy who was gifted to his former family, which is just not a great idea. The home he was gifted into already had resident cats, and Pumpkin does not seem like he asserted himself in that environment. The person who surrendered him claimed it was because he did not “interact” with her very much, which does leave one wondering if the other cats picked on him? PUMPKIN is terrified at the shelter and that has earned him a NEW HOPE rating. Only an ACC-approved rescue group can save him for a FOSTER or ADOPTER tonight. Please message the Urgent/PODR help desk at [email protected] if you live within about 3-4 hours of NYC and can give this misunderstood boy a lifesaving home, tonight!
