In June, a microchipped dog was taken in at a busy California animal control agency, but his family never showed up to take him home – now, weeks later, he is scheduled to die. The dog is Buddy, a two-year-old German shepherd who arrived at the Riverside County Animal Shelter on June 25 as a stray.
The Facebook page, Saving Riverside Shelter Dogs, wrote a plea on Buddy’s behalf – pointing out his dire situation:
LAST CALL! MUST EXIT TODAY 7/17/19 HE WILL BE EUTHANIZED‼️ BUDDY is scheduled for EUTHANASIA per Riverside Shelter’s Official Webpage. Please contact the rescue coordinators at the info below if you can save . We may be his last hope. Please share everywhere! 💔
Buddy is ready to go home:
Buddy was on a microchip hold, but his owners didn’t come for him. He’s a pretty calm guy and clearly handsome as can be. Buddy has been at the shelter two weeks but no one has expressed interest in him. He’s already neutered, so if you adopt him, he can leave the shelter immediately!
Please help save Buddy’s life by sharing this article with his adoption information – time is of the essence!
