Update 5/15/17: Rescued!
Volunteers working to save dogs in a rural south Texas animal control agency have been given a horrible ultimatum for a dog who has been described as the “sweetheart of the shelter.” According to the volunteer-run Facebook page, Nueces County, TX: Dogs in Need of Rescue, Sweet Carolina must leave today (Thursday), or she will be put down.
The frightening post was made on Thursday morning:
FRUSTRATED TO NO END…BUT WE are seriously drowning in dogs here. we need to figure something out for this dog!
Shes the damn SWEETHEART OF THE SHELTER: a lovely LAB / RIDGEBACK MIX.
Has been here THREE WEEKS: DIRECTOR HAS ORDERED HER PUT DOWN! NOW. And frankly if no one can help our hands are tied.
CALL OR TEXT NOW: this dog is URGENT.
Caroline hasn’t done anything to deserve being put down – but the facility is filled to capacity and she keeps getting passed by. Please help draw much needed (life saving!) attention to Caroline by sharing her information – you might be the one who saves her life.
Volunteers can assist with tags & pulls for rescues!
Call now to save Caroline in Kennel 3
She’s here in rural South Texas close to Corpus Christi
