About

Coco (A#884358) is in a high kill shelter in New York City and is desperately awaiting a new home! A Volunteer Writes: Coco is a 2 year old stray who arrived at the shelter on December 10th.

She's a joy to be with in every way; while life clearly hasn't been kind to her recently--she appears to be a throw-away mom, and at 56 puonds, could put five pounds on her very skinny frame--but she is endlessly grateful and sweet to everyone (our behaviorist agrees, rewarding her with the wonderful "mild" status for her sweetness to other animals and people, and her behavior around food an
