Update: Rest in peace Hero. Euthanized at shelter on 9/20/19
A senior boy, nine years of age, was taken in at the Riverside County Animal Control – Riverside Shelter in California on August 13. And though the old boy has a microchip, nobody came to get him. Now, he has run out of time and he may draw his last breath inside of the facility…with no one he knows by his side.
An advocate writes of the dog’s (dubbed Hero) precarious situation:
If a dog as sweet as Hero doesn’t make it, there’s just no hope. This sweet boy was on microchip hold but no one ever came: no one thought enough of him to race down to the shelter & smother him with kisses. Being disposable is soul crushing for any living being, yet 9 yr old Hero still wags his tail & graces all with his sunny disposition. Hero was moved out of public view today. He will die tomorrow. RIVERSIDE, CA
Will you please be Hero’s hero? His family didn’t come for him, but if enough people network his information, an adopter or rescue group may be found in time.
