A neglected dog has found herself locked away at a busy animal control agency in California. The dog, a pit bull dubbed Melanie, has been at the Carson Animal Services facility since March 21 – she was made available for adoption on March 25, but nobody has offered to help her.
Melanie’s body reveals the lack of care that she has received in her life – whoever owned her did not bother to have her spayed and now she has a mammary mass. Earlier this month, the volunteer-run Facebook page, Saving Carson Shelter Dogs, wrote:
