MARLENE – A1054191
Gone 10-13-2015 Manhattan
**GONE 10/13/15** NEW HOPE RESCUE needed for frightened MARLENE, tonight! Check out her social history—this beautiful girl was carried into the shelter in a box, by someone who just plopped her onto the counter and walked out without saying anything to anyone. What gives? It’s no wonder that MARLENE is feeling a bit underappreciated after that kind of treatment, since her physical history suggests she may have been someone’s pet. Marlene has reacted defensively at the shelter—who can blame her for that?—and as a result, only a New Hope rescue group can save her life tonight. Rescues need HOMES in order to save Marlene and cats in her position, so if you can foster or adopt her, please step up tonight!

I am a female calico domestic sh mix. The shelter thinks I am about 3 YEARS old.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Marlene was calm and relaxed upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Marlene looks at the assessor, blinks slowly, and then looks away. Reaction to cage door opening: Marlene becomes stiff and alert. Reaction to touch: Marlene sniffs the assessor’s hand, but hisses and growls when touch was attempted. She does not allow petting; she hisses and swats. Behavior Determination: New Hope Only Marlene is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home. She has tried to swat, is extremely uncomfortable in the shelter environment, and does not currently tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
