Poor Wally; talk about having some bad luck. Still as sweet as can be, on Friday this boy could be taking his last breath as the Moreno Valley Animal Shelter plan to euthanize him at the end of the day if he doesn’t have a foster or adopter. Sadly, he arrived at the shelter with a painful liquid burn down his back and behind his head. Although he was in terrible pain, his kind disposition never wavered. And as if he hadn’t gone through enough pain in his short life, at the end of the working day, Wally will die.
