RUDOLFO – A1034307
**GONE 04/30/15** DECLAWED RUDOLFO EARNS UNJUST NEW HOPE RATING! Poor RUDOLFO! He came from ‘OUT OF NYC’ and was given up for ‘allergies’. When RUDOLFO arrived at the ACC center he was just fine, but he swatted and hissed when put into a kennel. RUDOLFO is only 8 years old, and he knows he’s frightened and in a scary place. Some cats, when they feel cornered and are already feeling defenseless, will use every defense they can to protect themselves-remember, RUDOLFO does not have claws! RUDOLFO was given a wonderful write up by the care center at ACC, and was a true member of a family til he was dropped off at the ACC. Don’t let this fine guy be killed because that’s what the ACC has planned for him tomorrow!!! Welcome him into your home-into your life-and save him. He only has til 12 noon tomorrow!!! Offer to Foster RUDOLFO- save his life and give him a chance for a new family!!! He needs you!!!!
