An elderly dog, 13 years of age, finds herself alone in a strange and frightening environment after her family surrendered her. Houston Underdogs recounts the reason for Sapphire’s surrender to the BARC Animal Shelter facility:

Sapphire is an older dog that was turned in by her owner on 11/30. They said they can no longer care for her, and asked to have her euthanized.

Adding:

The citizen stated that Sapphire is “going blind, could not control her bowels, and had dermatitis.” The shelter vet saw a golf ball size tumor inside her right thigh and many missing teeth, but said no treatment needed for any abnormalities.

The shelter has deemed Sapphire as “rescue only.” Staff at the facility describe Sapphire as “calm.”

You can help Sapphire make it out of the facility alive by sharing her information. Networking saves lives!
