Gone 11-1-2015 Brooklyn
***GONE 11/01/15**** Poor APOLLO was dumped fom out of town at the shelter and now will die for his fear even better he is not sick!! APOLLO is a neutered tabby who was given as a gift. Sadly this gift is now a subject of allergies and was left at the ACC. APOLLO was good with kids and even tolerant of the family dog. On his assessment he allowed petting after they spoke softly to him. He is a super cat who is listed through no fault of his own. Give him a chance tonight or tomorrow he will be gone forever – at noon the euth tech will put an end to his short 2 year old life. Contact a rescue now to foster or adopt.
