Sad and alone - dies on Wednesday

Alone, sad and shut down – homeless dog dies Wednesday morning

Update 5/3/17: According to the Nueces County TX Dogs In Need of Rescue Facebook page, Jackie has been tagged for rescue!

Sad and alone, a dog dubbed “Jackie” has lost all hope from inside of his lonely kennel run inside of an animal control agency in a small, rural south Texas town. Jackie seems to know that his days are numbered and that nobody cares about his fate.

On Monday, the volunteer-run Facebook page, Nueces County, TX: Dogs in Need of Rescue, posted Jackie’s photo, and a few words about the urgency of his situation:

Jackie’s world just got lonelier. He’s alone, scared, and set for EU Wednesday 8 am.

Adorable sweet n social mixed breed, Jackie stopped believing…he has shut down. Is withdrawing. Knows no one is coming to save him.

Wednesday morning is the day that Jackie’s world will draw to a close if help does not arrive in time. Time is of the essence for this homeless pup – please share his information with the hopes that it will reach someone who is in the position to save his life.

DEADLINE: Tues May 2, 6 p.m. cst
FMI: (410) 608-2195

Nueces County is the county where Corpus Christi is located.

The shelter does not run this page, they do not have a website or Facebook page where they advertise dogs in need of homes.

    What a beautiful dog! I will never understand how the people who euthanize healthy dogs by the millions can live with themselves! Crying heartbreaking tears of frustration and helplessness,so wish I could save all dogs from the misery inflicted on them by humanity! I do not think God created the dog for humans to use and abuse them. I hope every last human being that has ever inflicted pain,be it emotional or physical has to answer to our maker!

    This dog would be killed, not EU or euthanized. Shelters use this word so people’s feelings are not hurt…..well some feeling NEED to be hurt.
    Euthanize is when you take your senior dog to your vet because the dog is suffering. Not killing a healthy dog.

    There are two kinds of people, animal lovers and the second, the ones who just don’t do a thing….they don’t do anything bad or good… the ones who do something can live with themselves….do no harm! A physicians oath!

    I don’t understand the purpose of shelters. They create shelters, but then they seem to not do their best efforts to contact agency partners to adopt the dogs on deathrow. Also, post the dogs ahead of time please!
