No one came to save Matilda: Dumped and nearly forgotten

Matilda knows she has been forgotten by her family. Even those with commitments to adopt this eight-year-old English bulldog a second time, have not come to the shelter to meet her. And on November 28, when Matilda was surrendered back to the shelter, she hung her head low and seemed to have just given up on life.

Have you ever seen a sadder face?

UPDATE: Matilda was rescued by Southern California Bulldog Rescue and Tami Leckie with the help of Shawna Hamon and Sal Valdepeña! Please help fund her rescue, she is very sick, her eyes are looking infected, she is closer to 9-10 yrs old and has not been eating Donations and pledges may be sent via PayPal to: Socalbulldogrsq@aol.comThank you all for your quick response! This rescue plan came together very fast, I am so grateful for all the support, she was breaking my heart and I couldn’t bear the thought of leaving her there!!! #A4650886Matilda is in Building #3 Her CTA was a no show, her two IPS failed her today as did her owner.
