Update: Rescued on 11/14/13
A beautiful senior dog, whose body speaks of a life of neglect, was left at the Los Angeles County Animal Care and Control facility in Baldwin Park, Calif., on Oct. 31.
Eight-year-old "Veila," a Labrador retriever mix, who is described as "very friendly," has sparse fur and goopy eyes - evidence of less than stellar care by her prior owner.
Today, the sad senior sits in loneliness and confusion, wondering what happened.
Nothing around her is familiar - there are frantic barks and cries from other distraught dogs, faces of unfamiliar strangers who walk the kennel aisles and smells of fear.
Please take a moment to network on Veila's behalf - her very life depends on the kindness of strangers.
