Update 1/7/19: Per Petharbor, Atlas has been rescued!!
Is there any hope of better days for an old dog who is being held at a busy California animal control agency? The dog, dubbed Atlas, has been at the Riverside County Animal Control – City of Rialto facility, since December 29. Sadly, this senior dog has everything working against him…he’s an old dog, he’s a black dog, and he is a pit bull. Will it be three strikes, you’re out for this homeless senior boy?
Few people walk into an animal shelter seeking out old dogs. Unfortunately, black dogs are usually bypassed as well. This senior boy’s only hope is the kindness of strangers who want to help in some way, shape or form. You can do your part by taking a moment to network this article with Atlas’ adoption information. Networking is known to save lives!
Atlas deserves the chance to live out the remainder of his life with someone who will show him what it means to be loved. Someone who will offer him good food, a soft bed and the kind touch of a hand.
