Caged at high kill Calif. shelter for months: 'Don't close your eyes I'm here'

Meet Chase who has had the misfortune of being locked up at the high kill California facility of San Bernardino City Animal Shelter for months. The innocent victim of a confiscation, this young German shepherd blend is reported to constantly watch everyone as they come and go.

Poor Chase hasn't even had the opportunity to be seen by the public on the popular PetHarbor links which allow potential adopters to browse online. Chase's exit date is set for Friday, August 15. Anything that happens after that, depends entirely on the staff at the shelter; whether Chase lives or dies may only be by random chance.

Volunteers don't get the opportunity to offer input about the dogs deemed to be most adoptable.

Sadly, here is the irrefutable truth about Chase's status described by an advocate trying very hard to help:

"WHAT ABOUT CHASE? Will someone help?
We all see Chase day after day; now is he to be ignored and forgotten? Imagine how he feels; he's done nothing wrong, but has been here over a month. No one is helping him, but why? Chase stands and people watches the whole time, and he's waiting for us to help. This dog has done nothing wrong."
