A seven-year-old poodle lies curled up in her kennel cage at the Baldwin Park Animal Care Center in California. Missing an eye, terribly matted and pretending to be asleep, a shelter volunteer couldn’t help but be drawn to the tiny victim of heartless neglect. Picked up by Animal Control as a stray on June 2, she is expected to be available for adoption on June 6. Her online story begins when Karen Klink met her on Saturday:
“This lovely lady from Baldwin Park animal shelter building four, was just ‘pretending to sleep.’ One eye gone, matted fur, either obese or other issues… I quietly approached her and she came to me in a loving manner. Not knowing anything about her injuries, I carefully petted her and held her for a while. No fear or aggression, just love.”
A Facebook page can be followed here or here. Certain pictures break our heart; what this seven-year-old dog must have been through while on the street fending for herself is hard to imagine. In her kennel cage however, she tries to act as if she were invisible, but at the slightest touch she quietly inches over for affection and reassurance that all will be fine. She’s a broken little dog who desperately needs to be rescued. Share this dog’s plight with approved rescue organizations, friends, family and social media contacts. Sharing saves lives.
