SAFE – 04/13/15 – LUCY – A1031630 – MANHATTAN, NY
BEGINNER-rated Lucy is a spayed sweetie who has lived with a Yorkie, and whose entire life had been spent with the same owner…..until that owner developed “allergies” on 3/29. Despite the fact that Lucy is the very definition of HIGHLY ADOPTABLE CAT, the ACC couldn’t manage to find a home for her. The broken shelter system will be the death of Lucy tomorrow, unless a foster/adopter steps up for her tonight!
