The ten-year-old dog is clearly terrified at the facility - a volunteer who visited the building to take photos of the dogs who are in need of homes wrote:

she was curled up on her bed.. SHAKING so badly

At the animal control, the senior dog is known only by her identification number, A4690790 - what her true name is, or her history, is a mystery.

The elderly girl looks as if she may be partially blind - the bones in her spine are also a bit too easy to see...

Please take a moment to network on behalf of this frightened senior.
