I debated whether or not to post this but I think Canela’s story needs to be heard. This bundle of sweetness was brought into the shelter on May 26th. When I took her out of her kennel on July 7th she was really only a shell of a dog. She must’ve gotten sick at the shelter because she was skin and bones and green goop covered both of her eyes and most of her nose. After a slow walk to the volunteer room, I set about cleaning her up with wet paper towels. She let me wipe the goop out of her eyes and waited patiently as I eased the crusty pieces off of her eyelashes. She did not appreciate me trying to clean her nose so I left that mostly alone.
She seemed like she was having a hard time finding a place to lay down so we put a squishy bed on the floor and she immediately took to resting on that. I got her a can of wet food and she gobbled it down in seconds. I gave her a bunch of treats too. She was cleaned up and loved on for at least an hour that day. But I just called to check on her and they euthanized her this morning. I never saw her go on the e-list last night so I thought I had time to work on her post. I’m so sorry to have failed you sweet girl. I wish I had taken you home with me when I had the chance.
Canela’s A# is 3605968 and she is currently in a landfill in Phoenix. I’m so sorry sweet girl.
