Update 9/4/14: Bowery has been reserved by a member of the public. The person who reserved her must follow through by 9/6/14
It is the worst possible type of posting to stumble across...the urgent notice that a friendly dog has mere hours left to live.
Bowery, a five-year-old mixed breed dog, is currently at the New York Animal Care and Control facility in Manhattan. On Thursday morning, the Facebook page, Urgent Death Row Dogs, wrote:
**Please keep sharing our Death Row Dogs. ** The shelter is OPEN and the animals now have until 12 PM (NOON EST.) They are ALL still alive and waiting for YOU!!!
Bowery is in the album of dogs who have hours left to be saved. The friendly dog, who was brought in by an individual who claimed that she was a stray, has received good behavior evaluations, but she is sick and needs to leave.
The following information has been written by a volunteer about Bowery:
Bowery reminds me of "La Joconde," the famous painting of a pretty unknown woman with a sweet and enigmatic smile. Indeed, Bowery's past is unknown to us and her gentle smile is contagious . She is an adorable dumpling dressed in a lush and shiny coat with the most delicate markings. She seems to wear a mask that gives her the softest look. Her eyes twinkle. Her face is so expressive, almost human and makes me want to strike a conversation with her. Bowery is welcoming in her kennel. She is great on the leash and likely house trained. She likes when other people come to say hello and she is absolutely lovely with other dogs met, big and small.
Bowery is sick with an upper respiratory infection and she is out of time. Please take a moment to network on her behalf, before she is lost forever.
