Stray Lab retriever hides in the corner and shakes at busy Texas shelter


In a short heartbreaking video, a stray Labrador retriever is shown trying his best to make himself invisible. The barking, the clanking of bowls, the laughter of children and all the strange people have quickly become overwhelming.

Check out his video:

548985 – 1/19 Update: Great News! He is potentially safe. There is a rescue group placed a hold 🙂 We will follow until out of the building!Since it is a rescue hold and you would like to adopt you still can. Adoption trumps rescue up until the day the rescue group agrees to pick up the animal from the shelter. (Ex: rescue hold placed on a Monday, the rescue group tells the shelter they will pick up on Thursday. Someone could adopt Monday – Wednesday. They could not adopt on Thursday.)Adoptions are made AT THE SHELTER ONLY: 612 Canino Road, Houston, TXAdoption Hours: 1 – 5:30pm M-F and 11am – 3:30pm on Saturday and Sunday‼️came with 548986 – HEARTBREAKING!‼️http://petharbor.com/pet.asp?uaid=HRRS.A548985HW Status: Weight: Age: 2yThis video was shot SUNDAY, 1/19INTAKE: STRAY brought in on 1/19Zipcode Found: 77449HOW YOU CAN HELP:🐶ADOPT!: Adoptions must be made IN PERSON at the shelter. Adoption Hours are 1-5:30pm on Monday-Friday and 11am-3:30pm on Saturday-Sunday. Adoption Fees: $50 Dogs, $80 puppies (includes spay/neuter, vaccinations, rabies and microchip). Seniors and Military ½ off adoption fee.📧 FOSTER (temporarily keeping a dog in your home – think of it like in-home dog sitting): Rescues and the shelter both need FOSTER homes. If you live in Harris County and would like to foster for the shelter see this link with foster info and the application: https://bit.ly/2PNUnX0 OR you may comment below the video that you are willing to foster and others will connect you to a rescue that can help. When you foster, you help the shelter create more space in shelter which enables them to save more lives.🤝DONATE: We, Day of the Dogs, are a 501c3 organization. We collect donations up front to encourage a rescue group to pull. Rescue support is key to increasing the save rate at any shelter. But like shelters, rescues work with limited space and financial resources. Most need outside donors to support their ongoing rescue efforts – to cover the costs of fostering, caring for and transporting animals. If you can’t adopt or foster this is a VERY important way in which you can help. Think of it as crowdfunding to save as many lives from HCAS as possible!HOW TO DONATE: There are two optionsDonate directly through Facebook’s Payment Processor through the “Donate” link below the video that shows the Day of the Dogs logo and says “$XX raised for Day of the Dogs” (no ID needed as it is assigned to the animal’s post)ORDonate directly to Day of the Dog’s PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/DayoftheDogs (you *MUST* put Animal ID in notes)➡Donation page FAQs: https://www.dayofthedogs.org/faqs ⬅This link describes the entire donation collection process and explains how to request a refund if the animal is adopted, RTO,euthanized or dies. 🗣 SHARE, "like" the video if you haven’t already, comment and TAG people who can help.
