LARRY – A1049190
8-31-2015 Brooklyn Rescue: Animalkind Please honor your pledges: http://www.animalkind.info/
SAFE 08/31/15 It’s hard to imagine that Larry’s family hasn’t looked for him in the few days he has been in the shelter. Perhaps it has something to do with the booboo on his eye OR his mouth which is slightly swollen. This poor guy is a senior and as such has a family out there somewhere but they are not rushing to claim him. He now has to depend on the kindness of strangers..his Urgent Family..to get him the attention he needs. BUT he needs to get out of there alive first. He’s BEGINNER rated, he’s cute as a button and he is waiting for a hero.
