Update 5/6/17 – According to rescue coordinator, Garganzola has been tagged for rescue!
A beautiful pregnant dog, described as a “dime a dozen” on the streets of Corpus Christi, Texas, is about to lose her life. The Labrador retriever mix, named ” Garganzola,” (yes you read that correctly) must be out of the Corpus Christi Animal Care Services (CCACS) facility on May 5…
Hours ago, the volunteer-run Facebook page, Nueces County, TX: Dogs in need of Rescue page, wrote the following dire words about Garganzola’s situation:
PREGNANT and on Saturday, DEAD!
Over crowded shelter, tons of brown dogs, no rescue interest, so she dies since pregnant dogs are a dime a dozen on the streets of Corpus Christi and the pound is no place to give birth.
Crappy name to boot. Garganzola (A286076) would probably be a good mom given the chance. This brown lab mix and the puppies she is probably carrying has been given a due out date of May 6, instead of a due date. YUP this is it. No babies for this girl.
Garganzola did not ask to be born a “common” brown dog – she certainly did not ask to be locked away while pregnant and if she could, she would plead for her life, and the lives of her unborn puppies, to be saved.
