Injured dog in danger after one month at high kill shelter

injured-dog

An eight-year-old gold German shepherd mix is in danger at the Miami Dade Animal Services. He arrived at the shelter a month ago with an injury to one of his rear legs. Since then, he has been treated with painkillers, but nothing else. Now volunteers fear that his time is up. The shelter has sent out email pleas asking for a rescue to take him.

It seems apparent that Stewart, as he has been named, has not had an easy life. According to the medical notes, all canines and incisor teeth are missing as well as other teeth. He is very underweight. In spite of his pain, Stewart appears to have allowed handling. 

inured-dog-mdas Without rescue, Stewart will not be kept alive. The shelter will not take the x-rays that heneeds to determine treatment. He cannot be adopted in this shape, and he is taking the kennel of a dog they might deem more adoptable. Please share his story! A month is far too long to be left in a county shelter without treatment.

There may be more information on his Facebook thread. He is located at Miami Dade Animal Services, 3599 NW 79 Avenue, Doral, Florida 33166. The phone number is (305) 884-1101. The shelter is open Monday through Friday from 10:00 am to 6:30 pm and Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. Email:pets@miamidade.gov for more information.

Please note that I do not work at the shelter. Do not post pledges or offers to adopt in the comments — they will not be seen by the shelter. Contact the shelter directly to help or visit the Facebook threads for more information. Also, only respectful, profanity-free comments will be approved.

  1. This lousy high kill shelter is run by a murderer Alex Munoz who despite a huge budget and brand new facility REFUSES to buy the xray equipment promised to test dogs. He’d rather murder them! Fire his ass Nov 8 by electing Raquel Regalado mayor of Miami Dade county FL! Alex and the current criminal mayor Carlos Gimenez MUST GO! It is unconscionable the mayor refuses to fund what we passed in 2012 and believes Alex’s lies!
