Angel, an emaciated Pittie mix was in the process of being dumped by her owner at a high kill shelter in New York City. Pit Bulls or their mixes and especially those black in color are statistically the least likely to get adopted, so we intercepted ANGEL at the “gate of death.” Dogs like her usually get a couple of days (if even that much) before they are euthanized by the shelter.
Angel had a scared and confused look in her eyes, and rightly so. Why would my master, my companion, my best friend be giving me up, she must have thought. Sadly, this happens so often and results in millions of dogs being killed inside the shelter walls each year!
But Angel was lucky that day that Stacey of SNK9 and a fellow rescuer Carolyn of Kamp Kanine were visiting the shelter that day. In fact it saved Angel’s life.
Angel has since been spayed and received all her shots. She did have some old internal injuries consistent with being struck by a car, BUT the good news is that in the long run this will not effect her life in any way!
Angel is ready for adoption now. She extremely SWEET and is great with all people, children and other dogs!
