***SAFE 07/28/15*** FRIENDLY, SOCIABLE KITTEN, ORIGINALLY ADOPTED FROM ACC BUT DUMPED BACK THERE, HAS A NEAR-PERFECT BEHAVIOR RATING, BUT WILL DIE BECAUSE HE SNEEZED – PLEASE GRANT POGO A DEATH ROW PARDON!!! Adorable 15-week-old gray tabby kitten POGO was ORIGINALLY ADOPTED from the high-kill ACC, but now finds himself dumped BACK there after catching an easily-treated kitty cold. This little lovebug was “FRIENDLY and SOCIABLE” during intake, and charmed the ACC into awarding him a near-perfect AVERAGE behavior rating! And did I mention that Pogo is ALREADY NEUTERED? But poor Pogo will DIE at noon tomorrow, an INNOCENT VICTIM of the ACC kitty cold and a badly broken shelter system. The ACC gives him an “EXCELLENT PROGNOSIS” for recovery, but will KILL HIM ANYWAY. Please save this darling kitten, whose life is JUST BEGINNING. Start RIGHT NOW to apply to foster or adopt tabby kitten lovebug POGO! If you can’t save POGO yourself, please SHARE his sad story and PLEDGE for his rescue!
