RUFFLES – A1040275
**GONE 06/22/15** RUFFLES is a betrayed family pet who needs a NEW HOPE RESCUE group to pull him to safety, tonight. It’s a story we have all heard too many times. This gorgeous boy had lived with his former family for his entire 7 years of life, and was a perfect pet for them. When Ruffles was betrayed by those people, his whole world was shattered and he has not been able to put his best foot forward at the ACC. These cats normally do very well for foster/adopters, once they relax into a new setting. Please pledge toward his care, please share him far and wide, and please work with a New Hope rescue group if you can foster/adopt RUFFLES, tonight!
