A change in lifestyle has landed this beautiful boxer mix on death row at a high-kill shelter in upstate South Carolina, Facebook reported September 17.
Sox, or "animal ID 20955414," was turned in to Greenville County Animal Care Services (GCACS) at their location at 328 Furman Hall Road.
Sox is in a very bad predicament, because his time has run out, and he could be put to sleep at any time. Take a look at that face. This three-year-old sweetheart weighs 45 pounds, and his pull fee is $49.
Although Sox appears healthy, he is heartworm positive, which is another obstacle he must face. IF he gets out of the shelter before they kill him.
Can someone explain what "change in lifestyle" is supposed to mean? Did his family simply tire of him, and decided to dump him at the shelter? Or perhaps they were moving and couldn't take Sox with them.
A lot of residents in the Greenville area don't realize the shelter is high-kill. The Humane Society of Greenville is no-kill, but a lot of people confuse the two.
So Sox now sits on death row, alone and confused. He most likely wonders what he did wrong to end up in a cage, away from the people he loved, who decided they didn't love him enough to keep him.
If you'd like to save this beautiful boy, its urgent that you either go to the shelter, or email email@example.com. In the subject line you need to state whether you'd like to rescue, foster or adopt Sox, and be sure to include his animal ID number.
Please do something to get Sox into a loving environment before it's too late.
