Depressed American bulldog mourns for the owner who never came to rescue her

Angel just lies in her kennel, her clear blue eyes staring off into space; perhaps she wonders what happened to her warm bed and the family she used to depend on for comfort, food, and love.

At one time that used to be Angel's life in Jonesboro, Ga.

Now Angel is #140485 and in danger of being euthanized.

No one has come for the this young female American bulldog, and as the Clayton County Animal Shelter continues to fill up with more abandoned strays and surrendered pets, the overcrowding can only mean pets who have been there too long won't be going home.

This is the sad reality of the overpopulation of our pets in America.

Partners with Clayton County Animal Control use social media to increase the visibility helping dogs and cats find new homes and safe organizations for rehabilitation and placement. Through donations, which help rescue organizations with vetting, board during quarantine, and other expenses, the non profit continues to advocate for these at risk animals until safe placement can be procured.
