Heartbreaking: No new home means Frankie dies today

Ten-year-old Frankie spent Christmas, and now the first nine days of 2017 in a kennel cage at the Miami-Dade County Animal Services.

The very sad terrier has waited and waited for someone to save him, and no one has stepped forward. He shakes and shivers and has no idea why he is being kept behind bars as a prisoner; the sweet gently dog didn’t do anything wrong.

The shelter has sent out numerous please for help, and this dog urgently needs a rescue to save his life. His deadline is Monday afternoon at 6:00 p.m. when it has been reported the dog will be euthanized for space.


Described as incredibly sweet, friendly and calm, this dog would make a wonderful companion. Surely there must be someone out there to give him a loving home and a warm bed – instead of the cold floor of a kennel and a fate even worse than that. The dog’s initial evaluation described him as friendly, non aggressive, but stiff. Advocates have been pledging funds to help a qualified rescue organization with his medical expenses.

Share Frank’s plight with friends, family and social media contacts. We are his future, and sharing saves lives.
