You may not have heard that this time of year is very difficult for shelter animals, especially dogs. It seems like more dogs come in and fewer get out. Everyone is on vacation, out of town and fewer dogs seemed to be rescued.
Over at WLA there are several dogs who are OUT OF TIME and will be killed in the coming weeks. Right now, 3 dogs have a death date of August 29th. Jazz, Donny and Tyler... These poor guys through no fault of their own are going to be victims of the system, if they don't get out this week.
Thanks to Mirja Bishop for the descriptions below...
