DANCER – A1034912
**SAFE 05/10/15** Sleek DANCER is less than a year old, and already, this brilliant boy sounds like an ideal pet. Please take a moment to read his owner surrender notes to see what we mean—Dancer is friendly with other cats, likes to ride on the train, and is an all-around Good Guy. This happy boy is a bit rattled by the ACC so he was a little bit grumpy with the staff, but he still earned a respectable EXPNOCHILD rating. This good boy can be reserved on the ACC website tonight by an adopter, or he can be foster/adopted through a New Hope rescue partner. No matter what, please make sure that DANCER dances out of the ACC and into a loving new home, tomorrow!
