This defeated senior, covered in bite marks, wouldn't move off of his cot even as a volunteer called for him and blew gently on his face. Poor Snoop is said to be 30 pounds underweight, and just lies in the lonely kennel waiting to die.
All is not lost however, for Snoop has supporters rallying around to help. Funds have been raised for Snoop's release, his needed medical care, and transportation to a rescue or qualified foster arrangement.
Snoop's photo and heartbreaking story have been shared nearly 1,000 times, but his future hangs by a thread.
Please share Snoop with your friends, coworkers, and family. Every life is precious, and social media continues to make miracles happen - even for the saddest and most defeated faces.
As tragic as Snoop's situation is, let's not put all the blame on these county shelters. Irresponsible owners; those who fail to spay and neuter, those who throw away their pets as easily as they throw away yesterday's trash, puppy mills, and those despicable criminals who use innocent dogs to fight each other for profit are the real villains.
UPDATE ON SNOOP:
Snoop was rescued from the shelter last evening. He was immediately brought to the vet who diagnosed him with advanced lung cancer making it extremely difficult and painful for Snoop to breathe. On the advice of the kind vet, who stated if Snoop were her dog, she would let him go to Heaven. With her arms lovingly embracing this dog last night and many kisses assuring Snoop he did nothing wrong, this beautiful dog crossed over to the Rainbow Bridge. Rest in peace Snoop.
