Puppy quivers in fear and confusion inside of loud, busy animal control facility


A pup, just over a year of age, quivers in fear and confusion from inside of his kennel run at a loud, crowded California animal control facility. Marcus, a large, mixed-breed dog, has been at the Riverside County Animal Control – Riverside Shelter since October 27, and his time at the shelter is taking a toll.

A video, taken of Marcus inside of his kennel, reveals the fear this young dog is in – you can see his body shake as he waits for whatever fate is in his future.

🌟 Marcus is TERRIFIED. His body softly quivers & he jumps at the sound of other confused animals nearby. Marcus is barely 1, he is a baby, and he is scheduled to lose his life. We are all he has. RIVERSIDE, CANOTE: This dog is not in our care, we are not affiliated with the shelter in any way. We post updates as we receive them, for questions/concerns please contact the shelter directly. #A1556834https://petharbor.com/pet.asp?uaid=RVSD.A1556834Video credit Saving Riverside Shelter Dogs
