Long Beach, CA – A five-month-old puppy named Alpha survived being hit by a tow truck, but he suffered injuries and his owner surrendered him. Now Alpha is waiting to be saved from the Long Beach Animal Care Services facility where he has been since Sept. 19.
Now people aware of his sad situation fear that he will be put down if he is not rescued soon.
A rescue advocate writes:
Alpha is now PAST-DUE and in need of rescue ASAP before he becomes another euthanized hit-by-car victim
Alpha’s injuries were severe, including a fractured right hind leg and multiple pelvic fractures. The shelter previously stated that they wanted Alpha to have rescue commitment by Sept. 22, but that date was extended…by how much is a mystery.
Please help this puppy find the help that he needs to recover, and survive. Networking saves lives by increasing a homeless animal’s visibility.
