Camarillo, CA - Patsy is so thin that her head has that sunken look indicative of a body depleted of fat reserves.

Yesterday, she was on the euthanasia list. An advocate was able to buy her 24 hours of safety.

24 short hours...

This is a plea for Patsy's life.

The shelter volunteers who are pleading for Patsy's life shared this about her personality,

she is so sweet, very submissive, and grateful for any attention... She will roll over as you approach her, and adores her tummy rubbed. She loves to crawl into your lap, just a sweet baby.

A sweet, submissive baby who wants to cuddle. Patsy has no other means to plead for her own life - right now, her fate is completely beyond her control.

Patsy is located in Kennel# 143 and her ID# A525054. Shelter Contact Info: (805) 388-4341, press "O" & ask for Donna or Denise.

Patsy qualifies for a Heigl Foundation donation - please note the following: **IMPORTANT: To receive a Heigl Networking donation you must be an approved Heigl Rescue Partner and you need to email before you rescue the animal.

For more informaton on the Heigl Foundation donation or to pledge funds for Patsy, please contact

Patsy has little time - please take a moment and share her story with others. The time you take to "Tweet", email, or post to your Facebook wall may literally save Patsy's life.

For a sweet dog who has seen little compassion in her life, it's the least that we can do. Thank you.

This is heart breaking, as what has Patsy done to not be worthy of a forever Loving Home! All animals have a right to life! When we start respecting all lives then we may find that there are homes for all animals, we just need to open our hearts as their lives have meaning like ours does to us. Thanks Sophia! I will say prayers for Patsy that someone takes her home.

Sophie will not be euthanized, she will be killed. She is not dying form an incurable illness. She has not home. She does not deserve this just like every other animals who is homeless and facing death mostly because people are stupid and cruel. It is not always the case but too often it is. We domesticate animals and not do not want to take responsibility for their lives. I get so fed up with my own species and it depresses the hell out of me. I have to remember all the people who do care. I just wish we weren't outnumbered.

Let's keep hoping. I stepped in less than one hour before my beloved Sassy was to be killed. She was so traumatized that, after 2 months (a long time at a shelter) she was deemed unadoptable. A friend called me to come and check her out and we went home together. That was 17 years ago and she's still with me.
Patsy, I hope you get your loving home, too.

If I was anywhere near CA, I'd take her in a heartbeat! She so needs love and some good, nourishing food. I posted to fb, but I don't know anyone in the area to help her. It kills me to see a dog (or anyone for that matter) starved to this point! I would love to get hold of whoever did this to her. Maybe a little starvation diet would wake them up. Perfect revenge would be me feeding her liver & rice while they watched - getting nothing! SO irate over the senselessness of this situation.

so sorry ..wish I could help.. so many dogs and so few place..and dog breeders still making more dogs for folks who will not want them in a few years.. I know because I have two of them here. My Molly dog was bought from a breeder for 1600 dollars.. cute as a puppy..chained outside for 2 years after she lost those cute puppy looks.. then given away.

Breeders think they are selling puppies to a good home.. what a load of phooy.. I have had an Irish Setter who was given away because he liked to sit on chairs. I am sure the seller of that dog thought he had a forever home because who pays such money and then abuses a dog. Lots and lots of folks, Breeders need to wake up.. they are the problem. We do not need more dogs. We need more loving families for dogs. I get that love of small dogs, but look how many are put down.. and the health issues now are every expensive..

Please keep us posted!!! is a French website where you can click 5 times daily per animal and help save birds, horses, cats and dogs. Many of the animals are in real bad shape. It doesnt cost you anything to click. Also Freekibble, and The animal rescue site also donates food to needy shelter pets for clicking. We at CARE2 can help many pets right from our computers or from your local library computer every day.

I'm so happy with tears that Patsy was saved . With. Every comment that I read my heart was sinking and my eye's just went blurry with tears of sadness . I totally understand that not every animal can be saved but, let's. Just reach out and save the ones that we can. I'm so happy that Patsy will now have a loving home, and will never ever have to be in the position she was earlier today. The "Angels were looking out for her, until her "Angel came to her rescue . Thank you, thank you, thank you to the "Angel that has put one foot forward.
