BONBON – A1031262
BonBon is someone’s lost pet—she is microchipped, spayed, and had been hanging around her finders’ home for a “couple of months.” That person scooped her up and told the ACC whatever they had to in order to save themselves the surrender fee, they reported BonBon walked with a limp, and then they left her to fall victim to whatever the shelter decided to do to her. Well, the shelter found no limp, no former owner, and they gave her a New Hope rating. This lost, scared girl will die tomorrow afternoon unless a rescue group pulls her to safety tonight.
***SAFE*** Pulled by Staten Island Hope- Donation website: http://www.statenislandhoperescue.org/

03/31/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Notes: BonBon was brought to the shelter as a stray so we don’t have any behavioral history previous to what we are seeing during the evaluation. She seems to not be thriving in this environment and at the time of the assessment BonBon was displaying behaviors that prevent placement in the adoptions room and may require further investigation before placement in a home. She has tried to flee and is extremely fearful. She currently does not tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time. Reaction to assessor: Stays in den When spoken quietly: Stays in den Reaction to door cage opening: Stays in den (3) Reaction to touch: hisses, does not allows petting at all (5) Reaction to toy or novel object: hisses (5) Try picking cat up: did not attempt to pick the cat up, fractious behavior Placement Deremination: New Hope
