One can only imagine how lonely Garvey (Snowpea) has been. For the last 72 days, he has been at the Carson Animal Care Center, yet no one has come to his rescue; neither a foster nor an adoption offer. When he arrived at the shelter, he was so frightened and overwhelmed, he just curled up in the corner – hoping he would wake up at his home, and all this would have been a bad dream. Sadly, that was not to be reality.  A volunteer, who has interacted with him, gives us a peek at this dog’s personality:

“GARVEY doesn’t bark or jump around but this week he started to gently cry when we stop by his kennel to visit. After almost 3 months in the shelter he is desperately begging for help in such a sweet, gentle, heartbreaking way. He is amazing and his shy personality is incredibly lovable. Please SHARE for his life, he’s SO special and a FOSTER or ADOPTER would save him. Thanks!”

    Please read this very touching article about a sweet guy named Steve Garvey. Steve has been in the shelter 72 days and counting. Watch his videos, he has 4, and they will break your heart. He’s so scared he’s shaking. But he is also very sweet . He has lots of threads but not a lot of activity until last couple of days. Please share to help find him a foster home, pledges and a rescue group. Please help by sharing his threads on your public Facebook page. Let’s get him out this week.

    The right home is out there for this gentle boy! His eyes plead with you to take him home and love him! This dog needs to be rescued and the right person will know this and this wonderful boy will in return save that special person! If he was here in Jersey i would foster him in a minute! I know he will find his forever home!

    PLEASE – Some kind person step up for Garvey (Snowpea) and get him out of there – he is another terrified dog who only needs someone to be kind and to love him – He deserves a safe loving home – he is a beautiful dog and will make someone a wonderful companion.
