Elsa was surrendered to the San Bernardino City Animal Control on Thursday. Her family turned her in because they were leaving for vacation, and according to a regular volunteer at the shelter, just didn’t understand an overcrowded, high kill shelter is not a “doggy care” facility.
“Poor Elsa. She was described by a visitor who contacted me this morning, as ‘so sweet, loves children, but so very sad,'” addressed Lois Chisholm on her Facebook page to advocates, as she shared the story for a dog desperately in need of a home.
There are no required hold periods for surrendered pets, and even if they are the kindest, prettiest or best behaved dogs at the shelter, space and overcrowded conditions dictate which dogs live or die.

I have been at the shelter since Jul 28, 2016.” For more information about the adoption process, click here: Animal Control. Note that the last adoption will start at 4:30 pm.
People who have visited Elsa already sing her praises:
“Michelle ***** She is incredibly sweet. My daughter fell in love with her.”
“Tatiana **** Such a lovely girl! She LOVED my 9 yo son.”
Make sure to follow Elsa’s Facebook page as advocates share her story with approved rescue organizations, friends, family and social media contacts. Could any dog be prettier or sweeter? It is suggested any interested person come out to the shelter and meet Elsa – will she fit into your family and become a life long friend?
