8-10-2015 Manhattan Rescue: Staten Island Hope Please honor your pledges: http://www.statenislandhoperescue.org/
SAFE 08/10/15 it is sad when an animal enters the ACC, but it is even sadder when it is a senior. Meet Gracious, a 14 year old sweetheart that was surrendered because her human was moving and could not take her with. Gracious has only known one home, she was brought up as a kitten by the same human, She has even lived with Pit Bulls and slept with them. It is a travesty that at this point in her life, Gracious ends up here. She should be in a home where someone will love and care for her. She is a sweet girl who loves affection, she is friendly and social, easy going. What more can you ask of a cat? Don’t let Gracious spend her last days on earth calling the ACC her home. Share her for a new one. Because Gracious is such a great gal she can be adopted by a memeber of the public. Don’t wait until it is too late, share and reserve her now.
