On Thursday morning, a plea was issued for a senior Labrador retriever named “Manny,” who was surrendered to the Los Angeles County Animal Care and Control in Lancaster, Calif., on March 10.
The image of his bewildered face, coupled with a video of him quaking on his bed, spurred thousands to network on his behalf.
Manny is now safe…the elderly dog, who was given up by his former family, has been pulled from the animal control facility by the rescue organization, A Purposeful Rescue.
The rescue agency stated:
An elderly, golden Labrador retriever was surrendered to the Los Angeles County Animal Care and Control in Lancaster, Calif., on March 10, and today, he spends his days crouched on his bed, shaking in terror.
Apparently, the nine-year-old dog was left at the animal control facility because his prior owner was getting “new, younger dogs.”
The senior, named “Manny,” is confused and depressed…at first glance, he appears to be sleeping on the cot in his kennel run…upon a closer look, you can see that instead, his eyes are closed and he is shaking in terror.
