Update 8/14/17: Achilles has been saved!!

Achilles, the smiling dog currently being held at the New York Animal Care and Control Manhattan facility, has no idea that this is his last night to be alive. The four-year-old dog is on the “to be destroyed” list dated August 12, 2017.

Achilles is described as an easy-going, friendly dog who has captured the heart of volunteers. A volunteer wrote:

It was pouring, so I asked Achilles if he really wanted to go out in that mess, and his answer was a resounding ‘YES’. He’s such a good sport, seems to be housetrained, has lovely leash manners, and didn’t mind being tethered for pictures, even in the wet. He smiles, and every once in a while his upper lip gets caught in a tooth–talk about goofy-looking! Tail waggy and friendly, he pulls towards other dogs we see, ready to have a play date.

Good sport, house-trained and lovely leash manners are no match for kennel cough. Yes, Achilles has come down with the common virus which impacts so many shelter dogs – often the virus is enough to put an otherwise sweet dog on the list to be killed.

Achilles urgently needs help – the following information is for people who are interested in saving this dog’s life.

      The Pet Rescue doesn’t kill anyone. Why are you yelling at her? Complain ti NYC ACC about the killings. If you go to the article, open it and follow the link to this dog’s Facebook page, there should be a contact number listed. Call and yell at them. In the meantime, are you helping to save this, or any, dog’s life or just complaining?

    This was posted so last minute with barely any time to network him! So freaking upsetting! What a lovely adorable dog! My heart is aching for the unfairness heaped upon this sweetie and all the innocent dogs murdered in our shelter systems. If residents of our cities gave $1.00 to their local shelter there would be funds to care for dogs till they find homes. If a city has 75,00 people and each donated one dollar that would be $75.00! I’m afraid to ask if this poor dog is still here on earth,most likely not. SO WRONG! SO IMMORAL!
