Update January 2021: HUGE THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO SHARED! REILLY LEFT YESTERDAY ON A ROAD TRIP TO OREGON WHERE HE WILL HAVE A WONDERFUL AND HAPPY LIFE WITH HIS NEW HUMANS! SHARING WORKS – THANK YOU!

A young dog at a Tucson, Arizona, animal control facility is desperately in need of help. The two-year-old dog, named Reilly, has been held in a kennel run at the Pima Animal Care Center since October and being held captive has taken a terrible toll.

A week ago, the animal shelter posted a troubling video of Reilly, and explained his distress, writing:

Reilly is experiencing SEVERE kennel stress and the only way to help him is to GET HIM OUT. He has not been able to relax for a month and a half in this environment and every day here takes a heavier and heavier mental, emotional and physical toll on him. Living here is a waking nightmare for him. It’s too loud, too confined, too scary, too busy.

In the video, Reilly can be seen standing at the kennel door, licking at the walls – a sign of severe distress. (Copy and paste this link to see the video of Reilly on Facebook)

The video is hard to watch for anyone who understands dog behavior. It is painfully evident that Reilly needs to find a home. Imagine his ongoing distress…day after day, week after week, trapped in a small kennel run and listening to the barks and cries of other dogs who are equally traumatized by their situation. Imagine no running, no playing, no cuddling with a person – imagine the loneliness and stress. This is Reilly’s horrible reality.
