Fort Worth, TX – The “last call” notice has been made for an elderly dog who was abandoned at the Fort Worth Animal Care & Control facility on July 4. The 13-year-old dog, dubbed Shyla, is reported to be “very depressed” at the shelter facility, and she may be deaf.
last call for: Medical, Senior dog with severe arthritis, not doing well in shelter environment, depressed. No behavior notes.
And a volunteer said:
She is most likely deaf, so she prob appears more depressed than she is. She’s big and could benefit from grooming and some arthritis meds, and a soft spot to lay ❤️ she lays on the floor (instead of the bed) so she probably likes the coolness
Time is not on Shyla’s side. In fact, she must be tagged for rescue or adoption by 6 p.m. on Wednesday in order to avoid the unthinkable.
