Heartbreaking Plight: Friendly Senior German Shepherd Faces Euthanasia at California Shelter
A Lifetime of Loyalty Threatened
In a cruel twist of fate, Ace, a 10-year-old black and tan German Shepherd, finds himself on death row at the San Bernardino Animal Services in California. Arriving as a stray on June 27, 2023, Ace’s heartwarming devotion to his family went unrewarded, as they never came forward to reclaim him. Now, his precious life hangs by a thread, scheduled for euthanasia on July 29, 2023, just days away.
A Bond of Friendship in Desperation
Within the confines of the shelter, Ace has formed a heartening friendship with another dog, a soul named A557217 Jon Jones. Both senior canines share the same fate, labeled for euthanasia due to their age. It is a heart-wrenching situation, as these loving animals face an uncertain future, where their loyalty and companionship seem unappreciated.
The Plea for a Second Chance
Ace has shown nothing but affection and kindness towards the shelter staff, displaying no signs of fear or aggression despite his advanced age, and possible arthritis. His gentle and intelligent demeanor makes his plight all the more incomprehensible. The question echoes – why would such a remarkable companion be condemned?
The Race Against Time: Seeking a Loving Home
As time ticks relentlessly, the urgent search for a loving home becomes the only hope for Ace. Animal lovers, approved animal rescue organizations, and compassionate individuals alike are called upon to spread the word about Ace’s dire situation. Sharing his story across social media platforms can mean the difference between life and death for this loyal and deserving soul.
How You Can Help
To inquire about adoption or fostering, please reach out to San Bernardino City Animal Control at (909) 384-1304 and refer to the dog’s ID number A556787. However, do bear in mind that the shelter is currently understaffed, so patience is requested during phone calls.
Ace’s life depends on the power of sharing. By raising awareness, we can connect Ace with a potential loving family or rescue organization that can provide him with the love and care he deserves. The clock is ticking, and every effort counts in the race to save Ace.
For rescue organizations interested in helping Ace, you can email the shelter to place a hold on him. Include the dog’s ID#, name, the number of your puller, and the intended date of rescue.
