Update 3/29/14: According to Triumphant Tails, Inc., Bruno will be taking his freedom ride from this facility on Saturday morning!
The last call has been issued for a beautiful, Labrador retriever/shepherd mix who is being held at the La Porte Animal Shelter in Texas.
Bruno has contracted kennel cough - a virus which is easily treated with medication, but often the excuse cited for animal control agencies to put a dog down.
Triumphant Tails, Inc., has reached out to their Facebook followers with a plea to save this handsome boy's life:
Bruno is a young adult Lab/Shepherd mix male which has also been infected with kennel cough. He is URGENT and must be adopted or tagged for rescue no later than 10 a.m. tomorrow (Tuesday, March 25th) or it could be too late for him.
Bruno is available for adoption or rescue IMMEDIATELY but will need to be isolated from other beds during treatment.
Bruno's time is limited - perhaps, to mere hours. Please take a moment to network on his behalf, before he is lost forever.
