BELLA – A1060993
Safe 12-24-2015 Manhattan Rescue: HVARS Please honor your pledges: http://www.hvars.org/
***SAFE 12/24/15*** BEAUTIFUL BELLA WAS SURRENDERED BY HER OWNER WHO GAVE NO REASON WHY HE WAS DUMPING HIS PET BEFORE CHRISTMAS! BELLA is perfectly HEALTHY and only a year and a half old. Her owner had her as a kitten and all of a sudden has decided to discard her like trash at the kill shelter – I guess this was his Christmas present to her. BELLA lived with young children and was relaxed and affectionate with them. She was said to have purrfect house manners. So WHY did she end up here? We don’t know – but BELLA is clearly not happy and miffed about being dumped so she was given an EXPNOCHILD rating and stuffed on tonite’s euth list. GIVE BELLA A CHRISTMAS IN A NEW HOME! CONTACT A RESCUE NOW TO GET THIS SUPER SWEET GIRL OUT OF HERE.
