A beautiful four-year-old dog named “Angel,” is desperately in need of help. Angel is being held at a busy animal control agency in Brooklyn, New York, and she is on the “list to be destroyed”.
She arrived to the animal control agency on January 14, when her owner surrendered her because of a move to a home where she was not allowed.
Angel previously lived with children and she is described as good with other female dogs – according to volunteers, she is friendly and appears to be “very house-broken.” Angel is already spayed and she walks well on a leash. Though Angel has a list of strong attributes, she is out of time.
Please help network this deserving dog’s information – she needs the help of strangers to make it out of this facility alive. Petharbor link here. Animal Care and Control of New York City – Brooklyn/Ask for information about animal ID number: A1101525
