LIONHEART is a really beautiful soul and he’s in the back of the Shelter needing some help. Please SHARE, a FOSTER and RESCUE would save this sweet boy. Thanks!

This old boy needs to be enjoying the comfort of a home, and he is obviously in need of quality food, and good care. Please network Lionheart’s information and help him find the assistance that he needs.

    Please move him to the front and let people help this poor old man. Give him some dignity and.let him go to a loving home.

      Tracy, only the shelter can move him. You would need to contact them directly. Their phone number is at the bottom of the post. Good luck.

    OMG. Watching that video is heartbreaking. Sharing on Facebook & Twitter. I hope he gets out today or tomorrow at the latest.

    Don’t know why Carson Animal Services considers itself a ‘shelter’ – shelters are supposed to find homes for animals, not hide them where no one can see them and pretend they don’t exist. This is deplorable to treat this beautiful senior dog so poorly. Lionheart deserves to be shown so some kind person can see his gorgeous face and take him home so he can have the safe loving environment he so well deserves. To just stuff him away is cruel treatment to this lovely dog.
