IVERSON – A1037314
**SAFE 06/13/15** IVERSON is a neutered gent who was given to his most recent owner by her grandmother about a year ago. Given that he went from one family member to another, you might have thought that the grandmother would have known her granddaughter was allergic to Iverson. Evidently that remained a secret until May 23, which is when this “shy and affectionate” boy was brought to the ACC. Iverson rocked a great AVERAGE rating and would love to have a new family to love. His presence at the ACC is definitely NOT his fault, but it’s going to be the death of him tomorrow, unless a foster/adopter steps up for him tonight.
