PEPPER – A1054847
Gone 10-19-2015 Manhattan
***GONE 10/19/15*** The ACC has sent out a SPECIAL PLEA for PEPPER instead of just trying to help this poor fellow themselves. You see…PEPPER is FeLV+ but its NOT the end of the line for this 2 year old. FeLV+ cats can be an only per,or live with OTHER FeLV kitties and they can live with dogs. So he’s not done yet…PEPPER needs care because of the shape he was found in.. But yet,he was still so charming and GREAT throughout assessment that he earned an AVERAGE rating! PLEASE FOSTER this guy. If you do then the rescue will pick up the bill. If you can ADOPT, then be prepared to go the distance for his medical CARE! Either way..HELP PEPPER!
