PRISSY – A1035601
***SAFE 05/16/15*** “FRIENDLY, AFFECTIONATE, PLAYFUL” GIRL, DUMPED FOR “PERSONAL PROBLEMS”, IS PERFECTLY HEALTHY, BUT WILL DIE DUE TO HER FEAR – PLEASE GRANT PRISSY A DEATH ROW PARDON!!! Pretty PRISSY, a six-year-old black tabby beauty with a sweet face, finds herself dumped into the kill-happy ACC due to “PERSONAL PROBLEMS”. At home, Prissy was PURRfect: “She plays gentle with adults. When you carry her, she does not mind and climbs on the owner’s shoulder. The owner describes Prissy as friendly, affectionate, playful, shy, fearful, and independent. Her activity level is medium. At home, she tends to follow people around when shes hungry or when someone whistles. She loves to play with string and wand toys. She loves to sleep in bed with the owner’s 17 year old teenager. The owner feels that the best home for Prissy would be one with older people and a lot of space.” But poor Prissy is utterly TERRIFIED in the scary shelter, so the ACC PUNISHED her with New Hope Only and fast-tracked her to tomorrow’s noon kill list, despite the fact that Prissy is PERFECTLY HEALTHY! FEAR IS NO REASON TO DIE! Please share her to safety tonight, before it’s too late. Start RIGHT NOW to apply to foster or adopt betrayed girl PRISSY from the approved New Hope rescue groups! If you can’t save PRISSY yourself, please SHARE her sad story and PLEDGE for her rescue!
