Update 8/22/17: Adopted!
What happens with a Facebook thread for a shelter dog is stagnant? A so-called “dead thread” can equate to a dead dog…a puppy named “Popeye” is in danger right now because nobody is sharing his adoption information.
The eight-month-old mixed breed puppy has been at the Riverside County Animal Control – San Jacinto Valley Animal Campus since July 5. Today, over a month later, he is still sitting in his lonely, concrete kennel run.
The puppy came to the shelter as a stray but his family never bothered to come and get him. Now, though he is described as “people and dog friendly” he may die. You can play a part in saving this adorable puppy’s life by taking a few moments to network his adoption information.
Networking saves lives – plain and simple. The more people who see his face, and hear about where he is, the better his odds are of being adopted or rescued.
