On New Year’s Eve, an abandoned dog, left tied to a pole in Mount Baldy, California, was discovered. Nobody knows who cast the pit bull aside…or how long he had been left tied to the pole, alone and undoubtedly frightened.
But the four-year-old dog, dubbed Chance, was found and removed from the pole – he was taken to the Inland Valley Humane Society and SPCA where he was was treated for injuries consistent with neglect, and held until his mandatory stray hold expired. On January 9, Chance became available for adoption – with many people aware of his sad story, and local media coverage on NBC Los Angeles, hopes were high that a loving family would soon be secured.
Sadly, a fairy tale ending failed to happen – in fact, nobody came to visit Chance at the shelter. Adding insult to injury, Chance has also been diagnosed with cancer. This young dog has already been cast aside, abandoned, and now, cursed with an illness that no living being should be forced to face.
Chance needs a home, and a loving owner who will show him that he is worthy, safe and loved. Find the Facebook page for the animal shelter here.
