On April 12, an Animal Control Officer from St. Petersburg, Fla. received a call about a dog found abandoned in the medical dumpster of a nearby hospital. Authorities rushed to the dog's rescue, and immediately scooped her up and brought her to the shelter. She had still been wearing her pink collar attached to a chain.

Barely two-years-old and weighing 44 pounds, the dog now named Dee Dee was given intravenous fluids, cleaned up and within three days was ready to have a happy ending.

Dee Dee thought she had been lucky enough to have been adopted; sadly her new human never came back.

Follow Dee Dee's thread on Facebook as volunteers, animal advocates, and dog lovers from across the nation try to share Dee Dee's story and help her find the life she so deserves. She is up-to-date on all vaccinations and has been spayed.
