SHADOW – A1040032
***GONE 06/21/15***SCARED AND SAD BETRAYED HOUSEPET NEEDS YOU! BE SHADOW’S RESCUE ANGEL! Sad sigh! Shadow’s world fell apart on 6/13. That’s the day his owner surrendered him and his Chihuahua pal at the shelter when they were moving out of the country and couldn’t take the pair along. Naturally, this once beloved and well taken care of house cat, six years old, healthy and neutered is not thriving at the shelter. Please see past this beautiful big (16.3 lb.) boy’s NH rating and offer him a new leash on life. Obviously once he feels safe and sound, he will return to his normal, sweet self. Give him that chance. Please contact a NH rescue and be Shadow’s hero. His precious life depends on it.
