The latest on Ginger, the dog left to die at California animal control

On Saturday, a four-year-old pit bull named "Ginger," was callously discarded at the San Bernardino City Animal Control in Calif.

Ginger's prior owner told the facility staff that he could not keep his dog anymore - he asked them to put her down.

Thankfully for Ginger, a volunteer photographer was at the facility at the same time that this heartbreaking situation was unfolding - she captured the sad scene on video.

Since that time, thousands of people have hoped and prayed that Ginger would make her way out of the facility...that her last moments would not be spent shaking in terror.

On Monday evening, Maria Sanchez, the woman who took the video of Ginger, advised the National Dog News Examiner that she would personally pull Ginger from this facility on Tuesday.

I am going to pull her tomorrow and bring her home with me. Julie and I will screen the adopters to find her the best possible home. In the meantime I will let her decompress and try to find out more about her temperament and personality. I've got dogs, cats and kids. She will be apart of my family until her new one comes along.

Anyone who is interested in providing Ginger with a new home is asked to email: Julie at Petconnect -
