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:

Take a look at MELANIE outside the kennel on a walk with a Volunteer.

Did you know that if you want to get updates from a Facebook page, you have to do more than just “like” it? To get recent postings in your Facebook feed, you must also hover your mouse over the word “following” and then click “see first” from the drop-down menu. You may want to check back with your favorite pages on occasion because Facebook often changes your settings, no longer having your favorites among those to “see first.”
