**SAFE 10/23/15** NEW HOPE RESCUE needed for SWISS, tonight! This young dude is only about 8 months old and he was minding his own business when suddenly, he found himself scooped up and brought to the ACC. He was nervous when he first arrived and those rattled nerves were not settled by his few days’ stay at the ACC. This gorgeous kitten failed to warm up to his captors, so the ACC deemed him “rescue-only” and for all anyone knows, he could be the first cat to go down tomorrow. Please don’t let this young life be snubbed out by the murderous ACC! Find a FOSTER or ADOPTER who is willing to work with a New Hope rescue group to save SWISS, tonight!
