According to volunteers, Rusty’s owner requested the dog be euthanized.
“He’s a sweet old man! He was so nice and friendly. ..We need to work super fast and get him an email to save his life. He is listed as a 15-year-old guy.
Rusty weighs 38 pounds and needs a village to share his plight. Please notify approved rescue organizations, friends, family and social media contacts. At a time when Rusty needs his family the most, they left him at a shelter and asked someone else to be there for his last moments. We can do better.
