Medical Doggies at South LA Animal Shelter

Hola! 

Happy Early Summer :)

This past weekend I hung out with some doggies that are in medical isolation at the South LA Animal Shelter. Doggies in medical, usually have a minor physical injury or condition, or skin issues that can be easily dealt with under the proper care. 

The shelter is way over populated this year and unfortunately as the weeks get hotter, the shelter becomes more crowded and more dogs are euthanized due to space. 

The medical dogs are sometimes the first to get put to sleep, since they sometimes get sicker, and the shelter environment works against them in their rehabilitation. It's not the shelters fault, it's politics, money, time- all that bullshit that comes with bureaucracy and over populated systems. Life just isn't fair sometimes..But we humans can try our best to help them! 

 

All these dogs are currently at:

If interested in more info on any of these dogs, please have impound number ready! 

I am just a volunteer and met these dogs once, so for more thorough information, please call or visit!
