RAY – A1038928
6-21-2015 Manhattan Rescue: Staten Island Hope Please honor your pledges: http://www.statenislandhoperescue.org/
**SAFE 06/21/15** Raise your hand if you don’t think cats should be killed just because their former owner can’t afford to care for them. Better yet, offer to foster or adopt SKATE and RAY, and save the lives of these stellar, loving companions! These AVERAGE-rated boys are both neutered, and they both have excellent owner surrender notes. SKATE has been declawed on his fronts and is 11 years young; RAY is still fully-equipped in the claw department, and is 6. These are gorgeous, gorgeous cats who have known only kindness throughout their lives. Please do NOT let them see the murderous side of humanity, tomorrow afternoon—advocate relentlessly for SKATE AND RAY, tonight!
