SYMBAH – A1033484
**SAFE 05/02/15** Symbah had a good life with his former owners, the people he had lived with since he was a 4-week-old kitten. Tonight, he is a neutered 8-year-old boy who faces death tomorrow, and who carries a NEW HOPE rating onto the list—what happened here? What happened, is this: the people he loved, bailed on him in mid-April. His experience at the ACC has shaken him to his core, and that has played out as a New Hope rating. This is a good boy who will be killed tomorrow thanks to the perfect storm of bad circumstances, unless YOU take action to save his life, tonight!
