A final plea has been issued on behalf of a “wiggle-butt,” owner surrendered dog who is being held at the Harris County Animal Control agency in Texas. The young dog, just two years of age, was surrendered to the facility on November 10 and she has not received any pledges or interest.
The Facebook page, Harris County Animal Shelter Pets In Need, wrote a desperate plea for the young dog, who is at risk of being put down after the holiday:
$0 In Verified Public Donations + $175 Brilliant Energy Pledge. >>> 11/22/2017 UPDATE: THIS IS A LAST PLEA FOR HELP!!! Has been at the shelter for days with no interest. This dog needed an adopter or rescue group to commit by the end of the day today. No one came This dog is now at risk of euthanasia when the shelter reopens after the holidays (the shelter is closed Thursday and Friday)!!!!!
The shelter is closed, but this dog can still be saved! The volunteer-run Facebook page wrote:
While the shelter is closed to the public, a rescue group can still alert the shelter they want to save the animal – but rescues need foster homes before they can commit to pull the animal from the shelter (someone who will temporarily open their home for the animal to stay – think of doggy babysitting). Who can foster? If a rescue is interested you will be asked to fill out a foster application through them. A foster could save this animal’s life! If interested please post in the thread (along with where you live).
Watch this dog’s video – see how full of life she is and her desire for affection. Please take a moment to network her information and help her find a rescue group or adopter – before it’s too late.
