SAFE – 04/06/15 IVORY – A1032203 – MANHATTAN, NY
Safe 4-6-2015 Manhattan
*** SAFE – 04/06/15 *** Ivory is a gallant little gent whose former owners brought him to the ACC because they decided their own personal problems trumped their responsibility to their pet. Ivory does have a couple of issues that should be checked out by a vet, and which have clearly been unmonitored for some time. Despite not feeling his best, and probably wondering why his life has taken such a ghastly turn, Ivory has tried to put his best foot forward within the ACC. The shelter plans to “cure” his issues with a lethal injection tomorrow, so please advocate relentlessly for Ivory, tonight!

04/05/15, a shelter staff member writes: Meet Ivory, this sweet 12 year old boy was an owner surrender that is in need of someone extra special that can help him now in his time of need. Ivory may have a possible collapsing trachea and has been diagnosed with a heart murmur. Even though this boy is an old timer, the time I spent with him he seemed very playful and full of energy. Give this old cutie a chance today and pull him from MACC.
