UPDATE: One hour ago, this dog was euthanized. Arrangements were being made for the dog to leave with a rescue. Follow this very tragic situation as the shelter volunteers are completely heartbroken.
Just looking at his face, can it even be possible this five-year-old lost sweet pooch named Keller can’t catch a break? Both deaf and blind, he was brought into the San Bernardino City Shelter on July 27; he is in desperate need of an approved rescue organization or qualified foster family.
Click here for this boy’s Pet Harbor listing. A496280. “I am a male, tan Pit Bull Terrier. Shelter staff think I am about 5 years old. I have been at the shelter since Jul 27, 2016. If you are my owner, you must physically come to the shelter to claim me.” Keller will be available for adoption on August 3. Listed as “rescue only,” Keller needs an experience home with special needs pets to help him maneuver through life with his disabilities.
A Facebook page for this dog can be found here. His video can be viewed here. Described as a volunteer and staff favorite, he is sweet, calm and deserves to be in a loving home. A high kill, crowded shelter is no place for this boy. Share his plight with approved rescue organizations, friends, family and social media contacts. Only one special connection is needed, and so many lives have been saved by sharing. Don’t give up … just one more share, and Keller may find the perfect home. For more information, contact the San Bernardino City Animal Shelter located at 333 Chandler Place, San Bernardino, California. Hours of operation are Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (Adoption and Rescues at counter stop at 4:30 p.m.) The shelter is closed Sunday and Monday. Telephone: (909) 384-1304.
