On August 7, an eight-month-old pup named "Prince" was surrendered to the Chicago Animal Care and Control facility in Illinois. The pup came to the facility because his owner could no longer care for him. According to the shelter volunteers, Prince is "very skinny."
The following information has been posted about Prince to the CACC Transfer Team Facebook page:
Took him out, very nice, exited to see other dogs, let me touch him all over. He's very skinny and looks to have some skin issue, not sure if it's mange or poor nutrition.
And on Friday, the shelter volunteers posted an urgent update about Prince, stating:
NEEDS A FIRM HOLD ASAP HAS BEEN HERE ALMOST 30 DAYS
Prince is young and he has already had a difficult life. Today, he is in danger of losing his life and his predicament is entirely out of his control. This handsome pup is available for rescue by a Homeward Bound Partner ONLY.
Please take a moment to network on Prince's behalf; he deserves to know love and kindness.
