Some people mistakenly believe that most animal control officers do not care about the animals that are destroyed at their facilities...for some of these officers, nothing could be further from the truth.
On Friday morning, the animal control officer for a small facility in Concordia, Kan., sent the National Dog News Examiner a plea for a dog's life.
I have emailed hundreds of people and groups trying to save a mastiffs life, with her fate of Euthanasia drawing ever closer. I had a recommendation to email you for a last plea for help to save her, even though she is ornery, every life is worth saving and I can't give up on her yet.
The dog in question is a large, 120-pound, five-year-old mastiff named "Sarah."
Sarah was surrendered to the facility after she attacked a neighbor's dog...though this extra large bundle of love adores people of all shapes and sizes, she does not enjoy the company of other dogs and has to be kept separate from them at the facility.
Because of her rather difficult dog-on-dog personality, Sarah is harder to place and she is taking up more room at the facility because she cannot be kenneled with a canine friend.
Sarah is UTD on her Vaccinations, heartworm negative, dewormed and will be spayed before leaving the facility.
Is there anyone out there who wants an extra-large, people friendly (loves to receive attention!!) happy dog who has an extremely uncertain future?
If so, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call (785)275-2702
If you cannot offer Sarah a home, please take a moment to share her information with someone else who might.Thank you.
