Update 11/11/13: Rescued!
On Sept. 16, "Candy Lee," an eight-month-old puppy, hopped into a car with her owners and took a trip to the Los Angeles County Animal Care and Control facility in Lancaster, Calif.
What started off to be an exciting adventure, ended up at the doors to the animal control building where fear and confusion replaced the pup's excitement.
Though Candy Lee, who some believe resembles "Minnie Mouse," could possibly be adopted, the fact of the matter is most dogs, of the "pit bull," variety, never leave the facility alive.
Candy Lee is on death row - she is described as "very sweet," but sweet is not enough to ensure her safety.
A woman who volunteers her time photographing the dogs who are housed in the kennel runs at this facility has noted that Candy Lee perks up whenever someone walks near her kennel, as if she is waiting, and hoping, that her family is coming back to finally bring her home.
Those people are not coming back - they are not bringing her home...
Candy Lee is "urgent," and she is relying on the help of strangers if she is ever to walk free from this facility.
