Urgent Part 2 - Urgent Death Row Dogs

TO BE DESTROYED - 09/13/14
Brooklyn Center - P

My name is ROCKY. My Animal ID # is A1002132.
I am a neutered male br brindle and white pit bull mix. The shelter thinks I am about 1 YEAR 3 MONTHS old.

I came in the shelter as a RETURN on 08/27/2014 from NY 11219, owner surrender reason stated was PETS CONFL. 







Rocky has been pulled by Rebound Hounds ResQ!

LACEY was dumped for a pet conflict. We don’t know the situation but look at this beautiful boy! He has gorgeous eyes and certainly deserves a chance to prove himself!!! Many times owners don’t know the correct way to handle multiple cats in a household and the first sign of hissing, they immediately conclude the cats can’t get along and dump them. Cats CAN be socialized if done properly. There is plenty of information online to learn how to solve pet problems. You only have to look. PLEASE GIVE GORGEOUS LACEY A CHANCE TO HAVE A NEW HOME. HE IS AT THE MANHATTAN SHELTER AND WAITING FOR YOU TO COME GET HIM!!

For more information on a particular cat, email adoption@nycacc.org but ONLY if serious about adopting, and ONLY if you are able to GO TO the shelter in-person.
