Wheelchair bound dog ‘red-listed’ at busy animal control agency

A senior dog, eight years of age, has been red-listed at a busy California animal control agency. The dog, dubbed Blake, is unable to use his rear legs. Two days ago, the volunteer-run Facebook page, Saving Riverside Shelter Dogs, wrote:

On euthanasia list!

Status: RED “Senior; unable to use rear legs. On euth list”

BLAKE #A1505354 – he did not come in with the wheels.

The dog was taken in at the Riverside Animal Control agency on March 2 – he became available for adoption on March 7. Is there anyone out there who wants to take on a disabled, senior dog? Does Blake stand a chance of living out the remainder of his life?

Suffice to say, the odds of Blake being adopted are slim – few people choose to take on a dog who is unable to walk. You can lend this differently-abled dog a hand by sharing this article, with his adoption information.
