Update 3/14/14: Pulled to safety by Big Dogs Animal Rescue!

A terrified dog is waiting to be rescued at the Chicago Animal Care and Control facility in Illinois.

The three-year-old dog is named "Katrina," and she was surrendered to the facility by her owner - she is not on the adoption floor and she has been deemed "rescue only."

A volunteer wrote:

Couldn't break thru with her. She is extremely scared, curled in a tight ball. She's an owner surrender, looks like they brought her in, in a box from her intake pic. Available now to rescues.

Katrina's eyes are like saucers - they clearly express her fear and confusion.

Please help this scared girl by taking a moment to network her information.
