Final Plea Sent Out For ‘Skin And Bones’ Dog Overlooked For Weeks At Shelter

Wilson is skin and bones, and he is danger of being euthanized.

Downey, CA – The final plea was sent out this week for a “skin and bones” dog who has been overlooked for weeks at the Los Angeles County Animal Control – Downey facility. His name is Wilson, and he was brought to the animal shelter on June 25.

In the weeks that have passed, nobody has offered to save Wilson’s life.

Two days ago, a shelter advocate posted images of Wilson, writing:

Wilson Final Plea was sent out!
Wilson, is a angel in his kennel.
The poor fellow is skin and bones, he gets extra feedings, but the poor sweet boy needs some extra tlc and fattening up.
Help this gorgeous be happy, healthy and thriving
Adopt Wilson.

Life has clearly been unkind to this young dog. A dog does not become this malnourished in a loving home. Shelter notes about his personality below:

During his handling assessment: Wilson maintained a loose wiggly demeanor during the assessment soliciting further petting from the handler.
Wilson is ok for public adoption high school age kids + recommended no other dogs recommended.

Please help Wilson find his way to a loving home – networking saves lives! Wilson’s adoption information can be found below.

    • Contact shelter! There are lots of groups on Facebook that work together to get animals transported to make situations like this possible!

  1. What kind of “shelter” is this??? Skin and bones, nails that are too long and busted off, laying on a cement floor??? They should be ashamed of themselves.

    If I wasn’t in NY, I would go get Wilson ASAP!

    Somebody please save this sweet pooch!

    • Shelter probably covers only the basics : food, water, roof — I wonder if Shelter gives hugs and spends time with Doggie? — probably not — OR probably very minimal care —

  2. Yes Wilson does deserve a beautiful home 🏡 with a loving 💗 beautiful family that will fatten him up and give him lots of extra TLC that every dog 🐶 puppy, cat 😺 kitten 🐾 all deserve that are still are on this earth 🌍 please save this sweet fur baby boy puppy dog 🐶 I wish I could take Wilson in fact I would take Wilson in a heartbeat but I live in 2 bedroom apartment with no backyard it’s just a small porch plus I have a kitty 🐈 cat that has never been around another animal ever never been around 🐶 dogs never been really even around other cats or even other people just knows me and my mom and she’s got major separation anxiety whenever I go out and about and sometimes she’s always meowing and crying 😭 💔 heartbreaking but sometimes she’s doing really good 👍😊 which is a good thing.
    7/30/23 Wilson has been at the animal shelter since June 25th 2023 he’s just a puppy 🐶 dog I mean if he’s about 5 years old than that means he’s still a puppy 🐶 but almost a full grown adult dog 🐶 still Wilson needs lots of extra love ❤️ 😽 kisses, belly rubs, scratches 😽 on his belly extra food in his bowl 🥣 extra clean water 💦 in his water bowl 🥣 so he knows he’s getting lots of love ❤️ from the people that have adopted him and are taking care of him just please someone adopt him 🙏🙏 praying that he gets a foster home 🏡 and then gets a forever ♾️ loving family ❤️ and forever ♾️ loving home 🏡 7/30/23.
