The question continues to repeat itself over and over, yet the answer always seems to be fleeting. How can anyone allow their dog to get this way? Everyday, poor little Pinky’s condition deteriorated, yet her owners went about their own lives and never looked out for the welfare of an innocent puppy? Poor little Pinky roamed the streets trying so hard to survive.
And on December 15, Pinky arrived as a stray at the Polk County Animal Control in Winter Haven, Florida. Her Pet Harbor adoption listing states: “I am a female, brown Bulldog mix. I am a puppy. I have been at the shelter since Dec 15, 2017.” For more information about this animal, call Polk County Animal Services at (863) 577-1762. Ask for information about animal ID number A916716.
A Facebook page for Pinky can be followed here. Please note this dog can only be rescued by an approved animal rescue organization because of her health condition. Advocates have been pledging funds to help. According to information, there are several rescues interested in helping, however that has not been confirmed. Please note – no dog is safe until they are safely out of the building of any shelter. Pinky is currently on “stray hold” and cannot be released until next week.
“There are actually 3 already in, not sure who is first, but the pup will be released to rescued when her stray hold is up – which will be sometime next week. In the meantime she has already been given Bravecto, which has proven to work wonders as an initial mange treatment and has seen the vet and is on antibiotics and other meds, and being VERY well cared for by the shelter staff,” has been posted by shelter staff on Facebook.
More information to follow about Pinky as soon as it is made available.
