Update 6/29/18: Riley’s deadline was extended to Friday morning at 11 a.m. (Must be tagged for rescue by this time)
The last call, “urgent,” warning has been issued for a three-year-old dog who has been overlooked at a Texas animal control facility. Riley, a pit bull mix, may be a bit plain on the outside…and a bit rough around the edges, but people who have met him believe that his inner beauty more than makes up for anything that could be lacking on the outside.
What volunteers have said about this death row dog
Riley is boisterous inside of his kennel (who wouldn’t want to get out of that enclosure?!), but he settles nicely when he is out with people. One of Riley’s visitors wrote:
“He became a sweet, calm guy that stuck to me like Velcro. He kept looking up at me as though asking what he could do to please. He sat for treats. He walked OK on a leash. He appeared to be house trained. He didn’t have a problem meeting other dogs in the bay. A kennel attendant also assured me that he gets along with other dogs. He weighs approximately 40 pounds and could use some groceries.”
The urgency facing this homeless shelter dog
Riley is out of time. Why? The facility is full and space is needed…not even one day ago, the Facebook page for Shelter Animals of Garland, Mesquite and Rowlette, Texas wrote:
❌ ❌CODE RED ❌ ❌SHELTER IS FULL.
I NEED TO EXIT THE MESQUITE SHELTER BEFORE 11:00 AM, THURSDAY, 06/28.**IF SPACE IS NEEDED,I MAY BE PULLED EARLIER!**
In black and white – Riley needs to be out by 11 a.m. on Thursday (today) – or he will be put down.
