UPDATE: Monica has been rescued by The Barking Lot in San Diego. Thank you to everyone for sharing her story and helping this beautiful dog to have a new life.
Sharing saves lives.
Everyday it's a struggle to find homes for shelter dogs, but the task becomes even more difficult when a dog has a short coat, wide skull, and a muscular body build. And so it happens for Monica, a sweet, petite brown mixed breed, barely eight months old, living on borrowed time in the high kill shelter of San Bernardino City Animal Shelter; Tuesday may be her last day to live.
Hearts break when volunteers tearfully watch Monica crying and shaking in her kennel cage. Her kennel mate, a flashy looking brown and white female found a home; someone came and swooped her up in a loving adoption.
No one wanted Monica on Saturday; visitors walked up and down passing by Kennel 33 with hardly a second look at the plain brown dog with the golden eyes. What could be worst than a stressed puppy who doesn't understand why she is being kept a prisoner?
Follow Monica's desperate plea on Facebook to find a home as humane advocates share her story to their friends, family and coworkers. Her time is very limited; please act quickly.
The video shows both dogs; only Monica needs a home. (Shasta has been adopted.)
If you are interested in rescuing Monica, please call the San Bernardino City Animal Shelter at (909)-384-1304 (extension) 1508, and refer to #A464890.
