MARINA – A1041828
7-15-2015 Brooklyn Rescue: HVARS Please honor your pledges: http://www.hvars.org/
***SAFE 07/15/15 ***RARE THIRD CHANCE FOR MARINA WHO WAS BROUGHT TO THE ACC WHEN HER FAMILY MOVED INTO HOUSING THAT DIDN’T ALLOW ‘PETS’. Wasn’t she one of the family too? Apparently not. She was brought to ACC and now this rare sand tabby is in grave danger. Sand Tabby’s are lovely cats, but they feel keenly when they are abandoned, and this sweet girl knows exactly whats happened. She has allowed the ACC assessor to pet her, but didn’t much like being picked up and that’s not surprising, Sand Tabby’s like to remain in control of situations when they aren’t sure of their environment, and the ACC is a scary place for any cat. MARINA is young girl, already spayed and ready to roll. She needs a family who will say ‘yes, Marina, you are my love-come home with me!’ Can’t adopt? Could you foster? This girl could do with a bed and breakfast, someone ready and willing to meet her and put her up til her forever home comes along. But don’t count on not falling in love. Please give MARINA her life-it’s the best and only gift of value here-and one she desperately needs. Save MARINA! She needs you!
