A thin dog, who was surrendered by her owner to a dog pound that is currently so full that there are no empty kennels, is in desperate need of help. The five-year-old dog, named “Tess,” is at the Cleveland County Animal Control in Shelby, North Carolina, and she has been there since March.
Tess arrived with a body that was infested with parasites – the worms robbed her of nutrients and left her thin. During her time at the animal control agency, she has gained weight, but nobody has expressed interest in rescuing her.
Now, this long-timer needs urgent help because the facility is completely full. The following information has been posted about Tess:
Intake Date 3/6/2017
SPAYED. UTD on shots.
Per CCAC: Pocket Pit girl. Sweet and submissive. Starting to look better, after getting rid of those worms. She’s gaining weight!
Animal ID #A34798165
Breed Terrier, Pit Bull/Mix
Age 5 years
Site Cleveland County Animal Control
Location S. Runs
