WEST – A1049254
GONE 08/30/15 Meet West, a 2 year old Grey Goddess that was brought in as a “stray.” By stray we mean her previous family moved and left her in the apartment to fend for herself. Nice, huh??? So when West was brought into the shelter, she was not a happy camper and made her unhappiness unknown. But can you blame her? She was abandoned by the people she love, left to die. And the ACC us loving her difficulty because it gives them an excuse to kill her. West is a good girl, she is just in a bad situation. Don’t let West die because she is sad she was done wrong. Share her for a new home and give her a shot at life.

I am a female gray domestic sh mix. The shelter thinks I am about 2 YEARS
I came in the shelter as a STRAY on 08/26/2015 from NY 10458, owner surrender reason stated was STRAY.
