Update 7/7/16: Less than 24 hours after Geralt’s photos were taken, and before his “review date,” the animal control agency killed him.
Meet Geralt, a four-year-old neutered male pit bull who could use a helping hand. In June 2015, Geralt was adopted from the Corpus Christi Animal Care Services facility in Texas and one year later, he was picked up as a stray, with numerous, painful injuries.
It is clear that something terrible happened to Geralt in his time away from the facility…when he was recently picked up, a portion of his nose was missing, his eye was swollen and his legs are covered in wounds.
Geralt is described as an affectionate dog who prefers the company of people to other dogs. On Wednesday, the Facebook page, Focus on Furever, wrote, “While I may not be great with other dogs, I do love my people. I love treats and I always give paw. I like to carry my leash in my mouth and play with toys. I’m a sweet soul in desperate need of a good home.”
Geralt needs to be adopted, or rescued, as soon as possible. Focus on Furever wrote, “Many of these animals are due to be euthanized. There is a “Review Date” on the Kennel Card. It is not a euthanasia date. However, if there no room at the kennels all dogs with present review dates will be considered for euthanasia.”
The adoption fee for this homeless dog is $25.
