SAFE – 04/10/15 – SHAKA – A1030549 – MANHATTAN, NY
SCARED SHAKA DOESN’T KNOW WHICH WAY TO TURN……SHAKA is clearly upset at being abandoned by her owner of 8 years. No mention is given of a behavioral evaluation by a vet so poor SHAKA is tossed to fate at the ACC. PLEASE HELP SHAKA TONIGHT!! She needs a competent vet eval but most of all needs someone to speak up for her!! CONTACT A NEW HOPE RESCUE TONIGHT AND HELP GIVE SHAKA A NEW LIFE THROUGH FOSTERING!!
