Yolo, a disheveled ten-year-old Shih Tzu mix and her bonded little pal, five-year-old Chihuahua, Nancy were evicted from their homes and dumped together at Manhattan's New York City Animal Care and Control on July 9. No one came for them; the two terrified tiny dogs are now listed in the Urgent Death Row category.
Although both dogs have been listed in the Urgent Death Row Dog section, there has been no "exit" date announced. Yolo has been completely surrendered; Nancy's ultimate custody still hangs in limbo.
