Terribly neglected 12-year-old poodle not doing well in shelter environment

A sweet 12-year-old female poodle needs help; she desperately needs to be rescued and could be humanely euthanized at the Riverside County Animal Shelter in California.

When Marshmallow came into the shelter on February 8, 2021, she was heavily matted, has severe dental loss and an oronasal fistulae. She is currently in the shelter’s medical ward – seems to have some cognitive dysfunction, arthritis and may be blind. Surely, a shelter with loud clanging noises, excessive barking and an environment full of strangers and unfamiliar scents must be upsetting for this senior.

Marshmallow has since been groomed; she does look better.
