UNIQUE – A1052783
Gone 10-5-2015 Manhattan
*** GONE 10/05/15*** ANOTHER CHANCE FOR UNIQUE–MAKE IT COUNT!!! UNIQUE IS THAT, AND TONIGHT NEEDS A RESCUE ANGEL! UNIQUE was found by a well meaning good Samaritan who brought her to ACC when she found her. Sadly, UNIQUE realized she wasn’t being taken to a home, or a safe haven, and panicked, and tried to get away. She was ‘netted’ like a wild animal and dumped into a cage after an exam revealed this little girl needs surgery for a mammary mass-and will probably die without it. Why would you save a cat like UNIQUE? Well, because this is Breast cancer awareness month and cats who have surgery often do have wonderful time ahead to live and be loved! And this dear little girl is just as deserving as any other, don’t you think? But you must go through a rescue to save her life tonight-and move quickly! She only has til tomorrow noon! Save UNIQUE!!!!
