Update 2/9/17: Safe!
A beautiful three-year-old pit bull mix, dubbed “Annie,” is sick, and despite medication, she is getting sicker. Annie is being treated for an upper respiratory infection at the Maricopa County Animal Care and Control facility in Mesa, Arizona, but the stress of being in the noisy kennel, coupled with her lack of one-on-one attention, is worsening her health.
This week, the Facebook page, MCACC East Dogs, posted a video of Annie (which clearly shows how stressful and loud it is in her kennel run), along with a few words about her condition:
We posted Annie last week (see video in comments). The difference is heartbreaking. She is being treated for a URI, but her symptoms are worsening. We are doing our best to help this girl out while she is in the shelter. The vet added a 2nd antibiotic in hopes that it will help, but Annie really needs to get out of the shelter and into a warm, calm, quiet home.
Imagine feeling horrible, and having no way to truly rest and recover. Imagine being alone and scared and sick…imagine Annie’s current situation. Please help this dog get the help that she desperately needs by sharing her adoption information.
