This is so sad.There is an injured golden[mix?]at the Minidoka animal control in Paul Idaho.she has been in a fight,shot by a bb gun,and dumped at this high kill shelter.it is possible she is pregnant.she has open wounds to the bone on her face,and is limping.They administer No vetting,so she is sitting,suffering in her cage.kennels are hosed down with dogs and pups in them,so infection and disease are widespread.We are trying to get her to rescue.she is in cage 2,and her name is Flika,shes only 3.Thanks!

I need to stop reading posts about injured dogs getting no veterinary care in so-called 'shelters.' This sort of stuff makes me nauseous. I hope someone can rescue this poor girl.

Thankfully I have a son smarter than I that can post pictures!..This shelter just euthed 13 pups with parvo,and has a dozen more in...mostly black labs.its very sad. small rural towns with no spay/neuter programs.A volunteer is going to temp test the golden with other dogs this morning,if she is agressive,they will euth her....I agree,I have no idea why these places are called shelters.couldnt be farther from the truth.I will keep you updated.

How can this, itself, not be considered Animal Abuse?

I just don't get it.

Sadly,none of the pups got out.they euthed all of them yesterday and a bunch of older dogs as well.They were afraid of another parvo outbreak....Happily these 2 made it out,in the nick of time,and the golden is currently at the vets!...Coppersmom,Bucky is doing great...he had to go to the vet for an ear infection 2 days ago,he has lost 35 pounds!!!!!He is down to 109 lbs,down from 146.All of his hair has come in and he looks awesome.I will post some pics on a different thread.Thanks for asking!

That is so sad. Didn't animal control know they were being rescued? It is nice to heat the other two were saved. Please keep us updated on the golden if you are able.

I love happy endings! Amazing what a little TLC and medical care will do. As for the animal control facility that didn't bother to treat her wounds -- it should be shut down, the people fired, and reopened under new management.
