Update 8/13/14: Franco has been rescued!!
Update 8/11/14: Bad news...Franco had a rescue agency, but his foster home and rescue have fallen through; he has 24 hours before he will be put down.
A sweet dog, who has endeared himself to volunteers at the Chicago Animal Care and Control facility in Ill., is out of time - in fact, he must have a firm hold from a rescue agency by 7 p.m. tonight or he will be gone forever.
Late this week, a volunteer emailed the National Dog News Examiner stating:
He has until Saturday. I adore him.
Franco has been listed on the CACC Transfer Team Facebook page since late June - to date, he has not been selected for rescue by an approved Homeward Bound rescue partner.
The following information has been released about the young (approximately one year of age) dog:
good on leash....happy to meet dogs through fence. Seemed like he wanted to play. bite wounds have healed nicely. sweet dog, tolerates handling all over
He took treats so sweetly. He is adorable. property 6/26..he was abandoned and confiscated.
Please take a moment to network on Franco's behalf - time is not on his side.
