SALT – A1034776
**GONE 5/2/15**SCARED AND SAD CREAMSICLE NEEDS NEW FRIEND! Salt is a one year old neutered boy who was betrayed by his former family and dumped with his sister, Pepper at the ACC just a couple of days ago when the family decided to move and not take their precious pets with them. Naturally, this former housepet, tolerant and respectful towards everyone, is positively petrified at the shelter and got slapped with a NH rating. But once he feels safe and secure, he needs a new loving home where he can decompress and return to his normal trusting self. If you can help correct the injustice that was committed against this poor boy, please contact a NH rescue for assistance. This scared and sad creamsicle needs a rescue angel. Can that special someone be you?
