New York, NY
I tried to adopt an old 9 1/2 year old black and white cat named Max which North Shore Animal League had dumped into a Petland Store on West 23rd Street in New York City, Max was placed there to be adopted. I saw Max at this Petland Store for a month, no one had come forward to adopt him in all that time, so after seeing him there in a wire cage in this drafty Petland Store, I decided to adopt Max and I was very excited about saving Max as he looked so sad, his eyes looked vacant and lifeless in the cage North Shore Animal League had placed him in. He was in this cage all day and night, except for one time in the morning they took him out for a few minutes?? Okay, I filled out the application for North Shore Animal League and the store clerk in Petland faxed it to North Shore Animal League right in front of me. The next day a woman named Pat from North Shore Animal League called me and we talked for about 10 minutes about my adopting Max. After that, I never heard from this woman Pat again? So, I called her and she told me she put Max in another Petland Store and I got angry and asked her why when she knew I wanted to adopt him? I then called North Shore and was directed to a woman named Cindy in adoptions. She made me fill ot another application over the phone and Then I didn't hear from Cindy either? I called this Cindy at North Shore and left a message that she should follow through with the adoption of Max. She finally called and said my application was rejected and I couldn't adopt Max? This was unbelievable to me. This woman Cindy called my 2 references and got glowing references for me but this Cindy woman said that my friends didn't know my pet history? A lie as my friends told her that I had an old dog at one time and an old cat? Pure lies. Then this woman from North Shore Animal League told me that I couldn't adopt Max because I have a tiny Chihuaha and that Max doesn't like animals. She knew from the beginning I told her I had a Chihuaha, so why did she make me fill out 2 applications and call my references if she believed I couldn't adopt Max because of a Chihuaha??
I TOLD HER THAT MY CHIHUAHA LOVED CATS AS WE ALWAYS HAD A CAT AND THAT mAX WOULD GET USED TO THE LITTLE cHIHUAHA??? She still rejected me. But why? I told her that Max the cat was so old and that I wanted to give him a home for his last remaining time on earth and that is better than living in a cage as he has for a long long time I have never been rejected in my life to adopt an animal and people beg me to adopt homeless animals and I saw max and I wanted him. I feel so bad for Max the cat living in a cage in a drafty Petland Store when he could have soft beds, toys, food and the good life with me. That is not the way to treat an old cat, its abuse by North Shore Animal League If anyone can help me get Max out of North Shore Animal League let me know. email@example.com leave message. North Shore Animal League, there are no words to describe how mean they are by not letting Max come and live with me FOR NO REASON? I absolutely don't understand why these supposedly animal rescuers have no brains, no compassion, nothing. Thank you.
