Update 6/4/17: Rescued by Leashes of Love Rescue, Inc.
This week, a photographer who volunteers his time to help homeless dogs find a home, captured the utter despair of one dog who is being held at the Baldwin Park Animal Services facility in California. The dog, whose real name is unknown, has been at the animal control agency since May 30 and it is apparent that she is tired, heartbroken and filled with hopelessness.
Photographer John Hwang wrote of the dog’s desire to feel the touch of a kind hand:
I first saw her sitting hunched over in a corner with her head down. She had trouble opening her eyes. From her matted fur to her trembling exhausted body told a story of a difficult life. Every movement seemed like a monumental effort for her. Yet she eagerly sought love as she pressed herself up against the fence to feel the warmth of a human touch.
This dog’s past is a mystery, but Hwang’s poignant images reveal her longing for kindness and love.
To help this senior dog find a new home, please take a moment to network her adoption information.
