All her life, Lola, an extremely friendly black Labrador retriever mix lived in one home; the only home she ever knew. Last Saturday, seven-year-old Lola was surrendered to the high kill San Bernardino County Animal Shelter because the dog’s owner just didn’t feel like fixing the fence where Lola played.
Now Lola cries in her kennel; she is just so lonely and misses her family. Sadly, they are never coming back for her.
Late last week Lola started coughing. Due to the limited funding at the shelter, upper respiratory infections often shorten the adoption alternatives. A volunteer is extremely worried about this sweet dog:
“Lola is getting sick, her sadness and disappointment put her immune system low and now she got sick. I am worried…she is older, fragile, and it will decrease her chances to be adopted. HELP!!!!!”
