A Delaware shelter has taken in an abandoned dog who was found with a note explaining that her owner became homeless and could no longer care for her. On Thursday, the Delaware Humane Association introduced Facebook followers to Sky, the abandoned dog found with a note from her former owner:
This blue and white chocolate dipped girl was roaming freely with an incredibly oversized, spiked leather harness with a bag attached and a note inside saying, “Please take care of Sky. She is 6 years old and friendly. I couldn’t take care of her, I became homeless and couldn’t feed her. She is not sick just hungry, very friendly. Please find her a home. Please.”
The shelter expressed gratitude that Sky made it to them “before it was too late,” and asked for compassion to be shown to her former owner. The shelter wrote, “We can’t imagine this was easy for her former owner, so please refrain from expressing any negative thoughts you may have.”
The shelter has outlined various ways that supporters can assist Sky:
If you are looking to start the New Year off in the most special way and want to help care for Sky and other animals like her, please head over to delawarehumane.org/donate/donate-now/#helping-hands, select restricted, and enter the note “Sky’s the Limit” to ensure your gift is designated appropriately. If you are looking to help Sky get to a proper weight and safely, head over to our Amazon Wishlist (link here: smile.amazon.com/registry/wishlist/1GGJ22D04KQX7) to have items shipped directly to us such as Sensitive Skin & Stomach dry food, wet dog food and a variety of enrichment items, many of which will slow down her eating to help prevent further medical issues.
