Volunteers at the Baldwin Park Shelter found Diva lying in her kennel early Saturday morning, and they knew, something was wrong with this beautiful young dog. Even though they called her, and Diva would acknowledge their presence by an upward look and a tail wag, she seemed unable and unwilling to move.
An owner surrender, Diva has been at the Baldwin Park Shelter since June 28.
Lethargic, unwilling to even take treats, and the greenish discharge from her nose meant this dog needed emergency care.
A recent update from the Pit Bulls of the Baldwin Park Shelter states:
"The shelter has sent Diva to an outside vet who can provide a level of care not possible at the shelter. She is still in urgent need of a rescue that will offer her a warm and comfortable place to recover from her illness so she does not have to return to the shelter. Please continue to share her so that a rescue can get her ASAP."
More information has been provided on Diva's condition as follows:
"Diva is at the private vet now. It was written on Divas chart at approximately 2:45 p.m. "moving slow, not eating, not able to hear lung sounds, emergency veterinary care needed." I asked about her availability, and since she is owner surrender, she is automatically available for adoption, but a temp test must be done before introducing to potential owner. The temp test will be performed once she is deemed "healthy" enough."
