A dog at a high-kill shelter is out of time, and plans for her rescue may have fallen through, Facebook reported March 29.

Hope, listed by the shelter as a pit mix, was found in an abandoned home with no food or water. She's terrified of being crated, and her time at Greenville County Animal Care Services, which is known as a high-kill shelter, has been spent in one of the officer's where she feels most comfortable.

Hope is a dog who enjoys being around her family. She was cleared from an upper respiratory infection last week, but is back on meds for a mild nasal discharge.

Unfortunately, Hope has a grade 5 heart murmur, and although she's heartworm positive, she cannot be treated. The shelter staff is looking for a retirement home for her. Somewhere she can live out her last days enjoying the love of a family.

For this reason, Hope needs a hospice type environment where she can feel safe and cared for. Her information is listed below.
