On August 2, a very dirty and neglected six-year-old American Staffordshire terrier was found abandoned and wandering the streets. Who can even guess how long he had been alone – most likely scrounging for food and seeking relief from the hot scorching sun? And so he is brought to the overcrowded Carson Animal Care Center and is scheduled to be available for adoption on August 7.

A shelter volunteer shared the following:
“It’s hard to see, but underneath all that dirt and neglect is a shiny white coat and a beautiful heart that deserves so much better. He injured his leg; he looks terrible but he is pure love. He needs help fast, the shelter is full. Please share for his life. He needs a temperament test requested in person by an interested party before the shelter will allow him to be saved. Without this test being ordered, he can be euthanized at any time after his available date.”
