Friendly dog at risk of being put down

An exceptionally friendly young dog is on the dreaded “list” to be put down later this month. The collie mix, named Penelope, is being held at Corpus Christi Animal Care Services in Texas. On Thursday, within the past hour, the Facebook page, Focus on Furever, posted a video of sweet Penelope and wrote:

Scheduled for Euthanasia 7/28/2018


Female, collie mix, 34 pounds, Heartworm negative

Adopt this friendly pup

The video reveals that Penelope loves people! She should be with an adoring family right now, sharing her love and receiving it too. Instead she is locked away – hoping against hope that someone will be interested enough to give her a forever home.

Imagine her romping through a grassy field, chasing a ball, or snuggled up on a couch next to her person. If Penelope could talk, she would tell you that these are things that she longs to do – unfortunately her fate is completely out of her control.

  1. How Awful, just awful that this lovely pup would be killed just because no on can give her a home. COME ON TEXAS surely one of you millions can find a place for her, if not then all the other sates.

  2. Texas as well as other southern states need to network more with other states that may not have such a large stray population. I live in an area in NY where there are shelters who take some dogs from Alabama and Illinois. Needs to be more interacting of shelters with other shelters in this country so these animals can have a better chance of finding a home. A pup like this must not be killed and the states need to step up and figure out a better way to deal with over population of animals. Mandatory spay/neutering and heavy fines if not done.
