Surrendered puppy -even puppies are put down when it is crowded

Please help – owner surrenders put down first, even puppies

In crowded animal control facilities, pets who are “owner surrenders” are put down first – even if they are puppies. Such is the case for a darling four-month-old puppy who was surrendered to the Harris County Animal Shelter on August 8.

The retriever/shepherd mix pup, named Brownie, is clearly frightened and confused – who could blame her? She has suddenly lost her home and her family. She is in an unfamiliar kennel run surrounded by the barks and cries of other equally scared and confused dogs.

On Friday, the Facebook page which networks homeless pets at the Harris County Animal Shelter wrote:

Note: Rescues and the shelter both need foster homes so they have a place for the animal to go. Who can foster (temporarily keep an animal in your home – like pet sitting)? Email foster@phs.hctx.net if you live in Harris County When you foster, you help the shelter create more space in shelter which enables them to save more lives.

In need! Rescue pulled puppies, leaving mother dog behind
