Can you work a little magic to help this California shelter dog in urgent need?

Monday, Apr 6th, 2015 | By Dr. Marty Becker

I heard from a reader with a plea to help Lem, a German Shepherd in a shelter in Southern California. Something about his eyes moved me tremendously, and I feel called to help him.

Lem is a senior dog with some pain in his hindquarters, left at the shelter on March 27. He is almost out of time there, and I’d like to see him safe with a rescue group or, best of all, a loving adopter.

I don’t know much about this handsome guy, and the listing on the shelter’s website had even less information than was given to me. The shelter can’t do anything about Lem unless you have his ID number, which is A4812585.

If you think you can help him, and are near Baldwin Park, CA, in Los Angeles County, please visit the shelter at 4275 Elton Street, Baldwin Park, CA, between noon and 7 PM Monday-Thursday or between 10 AM and 5 PM Friday-Sunday.

If you’re out of the area and want to arrange a rescue pull, call 626-430-2378.

If you can’t rescue or adopt, please share this post with anyone and everyone — you never know who’ll see it!

Thank you, my friends! Let’s find a way home for this abandoned dog!
