San Bernardino, CA – There are so many urgents – so many who will die today. Some days, it is impossible to decide who to profile.
Suffice to say, there are too many in great need – too few of me. Every Examiner writer could share an urgent and still, we could not cover them all.
Every journalist across the nation could share an urgent, and still, we would fall short.
Just moments ago I came across this photo of Dorothy – a 3 month old puppy housed at the Devore animal shelter.
She has the most imploring eyes – she has an endearing persona – even through a simple image.
She has until closing today before she is killed – before her beautiful, young body is placed into a freezer with all of the others who have been put to death.
Dorothy may be one of the fortunate ones – because she is being profiled here, and because she has been picked up on Facebook.
Or she might perish because there are so many in need.
We the rescuers are living in a fish bowl – sharing urgents – hopefuls – last minute pleas – with each other.
Somehow we need fewer dogs in need and more people who are interested in fostering – better yet, adopting.
Until that day, dogs like Dorothy – a perfectly adorable puppy – will die.
Dorothy – ID#A507703
I am a female, black and white Labrador Retriever mix.
The shelter staff think I am about 3 months old.
I have been at the shelter since Oct 10, 2011.
Note: I phoned the shelter because this puppy’s ID number no longer lists her as available. She is alive but she is sick and is now labeled “rescue only” – sick means ultra urgent.
As always, time is of the essence. Thank you for taking the time to share her information.
