Chuckie the shepherd needs urgent help: I am not disposable

See also

In the Atlanta, Ga, Chuckie is always on alert; he waits patiently for his family to return. Tragically, the five-year-old German shepherd mix has been abandoned and left behind by two families who packed up and never turned around to even say goodbye.

Chuckie now lives outdoors, but has been cared for and fed by neighbors who unfortunately can't adopt him. Lately, the poor guy has not been feeling well; the neighbors pitched in and took Chuckie to the veterinarian where the lonely pooch has been diagnosed with an upper respiratory infection and heart worms.

Angels Among Us Pet Rescue posted the following heartbreaking message:

"... I need a foster home in the ATLANTA area!! I am shy but promise that I will come around when I learn to trust again. I don't want to go through the heartbreak of being left behind ever again. Can you promise me that? Please apply to foster me and donate for my care at Please hurry, I need help very soon!!"
