PENELOPE – A1047427
8-14-2015 Manhattan Rescue: Staten Island Hope Please honor your pledges: http://www.statenislandhoperescue.org/
***SAFE 08/14/15*** PERFECT PENELOPE IS A HEALTHY 7 YEAR OLD GIRL WHO WAS DUMPED FOR A NEW BABY AND NOW WILL DIE BECAUSE SHE IS AFRAID!!! How is it that people seem to think cats and babies cannot live in the same home? I thought old wive’s tales were long gone. But sadly for PENELOPE that was not the case. Her family dumped her when a baby arrived and now she is stressed in the shelter environment and hissed, so the ACC punished her with a NEW HOPE rating and put her on tonight’s list. PENELOPE is an abandoned HOUSE PET who is only acting out due to HER BETRAYAL!!! She will be just fine once you get her back into a loving home and show her that she is safe. DON’T LET PENELOPE BECOME ANOTHER ACC STATISTIC – PULL HER TO SAFETY NOW BY CONTACTING A NEW HOPE RESCUE!!!!

Placement determination: NH ONLY Penelope is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room. She is stressed in the shelter environment and does not currently tolerate petting.
