The Shelter might not be the best but it's better than dying on the streets. However, let us hope he gets his Earth Angel.

May God bless him and send him a little wonder and loving person.
I wish I could give him all the love he deserve.
Fingers crossed.

Ginger I appreciate that you make posts like this. It gives this baby and others you have posted about in urgent need more of a chance.
Again,I would take him in and i live no where near there. This is California and i'm in Upstate NY. I hope someone comes forward to take him in and make what time he has left a comfortable and loving experience.

Yes,I suppose this is better than on the street but it also depends on the shelter.
He shouldn't be there or alone... I hope someone comes forward and fast. It's not much to do to help someone dying.

Foz's Petharbor post is written: Sorry! This animal is no longer in our online database. Please check with the shelter to see about its availability.

I would love to see a miracle Foz! ♥

BE HAPPY! - FOZ FOUND A HOME!!!!!! NO KILLING FOR BABY!!!!!!!!!! I SAW PHOTOS IN HOME WITH OWNERS AND HE LOOKS GREAT AND FEELS LIKE A KING! THEY LOVE HIM ALREADY! ( He has a big home with a beautiful, big patio. He enjoys! ) YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Meditate, pray, send good thoughts. His cancer is terminal unless a miracle happens. I sent them info about alternative treatment that I don't know if they will follow but in any case
baby is feeling good!!!!!!!!
TY Ginger!
