Status: RESCUED!

Chico is a 13-year-old owner surrender due to a large mass on his armpit. A shelter worker told me that Chico was scheduled to be put to sleep today (Jan 2nd). This handsome love gave a bunch of kisses and is a great communicator and he needs help now. He must be so uncomfortable.Please don’t let this happy, playful boy die. He has SO much life left!!!

My theory is that homeless and abandoned dogs are a lot like the “broken window syndrome” in low-income communities, and that initially small problems result in wide ripple effects. Stop them from getting worse, and an entire neighborhood, a city, a region, maybe even the world can be changed.
