Desperate situation – young dog sick and in need of help at busy animal control

A young dog at a busy California animal control agency is in desperate need of help – the two year old Belgian malinois is sick and he needs to be rescued. The dog, known only as “Dog #A1516282” has been at the Riverside County Animal Control facility since April 25 and right now, he is ill with an upper respiratory infection.

On Saturday, the Facebook page created to bring visibility to the homeless dogs at this facility wrote:

** SICK! Needs out ASAP! **

Status: RED


I am a male, brown and black Belgian Malinois.
The shelter staff think I am about 2 years and 1 month old.
I have been at the shelter since Apr 25, 2019.
My stray holding period ended on 04/30/2019 and I am now available for adoption.

In a video taken of the dog, it is clear to see that he does not feel good. He is lethargic, barely raising his head, and he has discharge coming from his nose. He needs to be out of the facility as soon as possible.

Please help “Dog” by sharing this article, with his adoption information.
