This is a great opportunity to make a difference for some pups. If you've ever thought of fostering, or even donating to a shelter, this would be the perfect time. Merced is stuffed, and I mean STUFFED, with dogs. They are putting multiple groups of dogs and cats down every week! The rescue coordinator said they have put more dogs down in the past few weeks than ever before.
These pups need help.
There's a little tiny wirehaired terrier with Demodex that could be saved if someone donated for her medical costs. There's also a Dogue de Bordeaux (French mastiff) mix that has the same condition and is in grave danger of being euthanized. His name is Freddy Fender.
There are so many dogs that will be euthanized today, and so many more on lists for the next group! I really have not seen this situation before where a shelter works so hard and has this many animals just streaming in to the point where they're having to euthanize multiple times a week.
If you can do anything, even if you see a dog or cat on the list that you like that isn't in danger, please donate or try to help them out. If they're not on the list now, they will be soon!
