Eleanor Rigby was dragged across the parking lot into the San Bernardino City Shelter on Tuesday morning. Animal advocate and volunteer, Andrea Neyses had been running into the shelter to take photos of the dogs in order to help them find homes when she stopped short.
“I never even made it into the San Bernardino City Shelter. and there’s a dog being dragged across the parking lot. I had to stop,” began Andrea as she unfolded the tragic story of a lonely, unwanted dog. “ELEANOR RIGBY is a young girl? such a gentle soul, Husky /Shepherd mix, old scarred skin and a halo of fleas all about her, scarred nipples, been bred too much!”
The person dragging Eleanor Rigby into the shelter stated the dog had been abandoned in a busy area for more than two weeks, and no one bothered to help her until this morning. The Good Samaritan found her crossing Highland Avenue – a street where the freeway exits. He had been surprised she was still there; kind hearts had been throwing her scraps from a nearby grocery store.
“Ah, look at all the lonely (people) dogs. Where do they all come from? Where do they all belong?”
