Pitiful Sam is gentle, despite the glaring signs of neglect which mark his young body. The dog, who is on death row at a busy animal control agency in San Antonio, Texas, is in grave danger…his “due out” date is today, Friday November 18.

The following words were written by an animal welfare advocate on behalf of this neglected dog:

Sam is estimated to be 2-years-old, even being severely neglected with open wounds, Sam is still a sweet & gentle boy that desperately needs a hero instead of being on death row.

Sam is young, but his body appears old – he appears to have never been on the receiving end of good care or kindness. Please help Sam find his hero by taking a moment to network his adoption information – the clock is ticking and Sam is nearly out of time.

    I’m in Texas too and I have two recues and volunteer at a wonderful no kill shelter and donate to three animal rescue groups. So please don”t be so quick to judge.

    But more important, what has happened to this gentle soul, can we still help? I understand that people in the northeast are looking for dogs to adopt. If we can save him maybe we can connect him with a group that takes dogs to the northeast. One of the Dallas tv stations had a feature story on s group (from Texas) that had transported 3000 dogs to the northeast for adoption.

    Is it too late to save him?
