Sad death row dog in Miami-Dade County shelter reaches out for attention

See also

Depressed and alone, Shelby reaches her paw out beneath the wire bars of her prison at Miami-Dade County Animal Services. No one can see her; she has been pushed into the rear of the shelter because of overcrowded conditions.

Shelby is only two-years-old. Adopted as a puppy from this same facility, her irresponsible owners abandoned her. At only two years old, Shelby most likely will be euthanized because no one can even find her to adopt her.

Shelby's Facebook page can be found by clicking here.

Urgent Dogs of Miami is a networking site run by volunteers who help bring awareness to dogs at the Miami-Dade County Animal Services (MDAS). The shelter is located at 7401 NW 74 Street, Miami, FL 33166. (305)-884-1101
