Walley - Rescued from the Downey Shelter.
Three days ago I went to the shelter with my friend Jaime Ray Newman, and we saw Walley.
I wish I had taken a "before" picture so I could show everybody what difference a bath can do.
Walley was at the shelter... available for adoption, but no one came for him.
He is a little sad because he has pretty bad kennel cough, but he should be OK in a few days.
I have seen dogs that look like him sell for $2,000 in pet stores, and yet, he cost only $40 at the shelter.
Please don't buy from breeders and pet stores that sell dogs from puppy mills... go to the shelter, and adopt.
Also, a great way to help save lives is by volunteering as a groomer at your local shelter. A clean dog is so much more likely to get adopted.
Oh, Walley is fostered by Jaime (who is going to be on "Red Widow" - ABC). She is nursing him back to health, and then he will move to his new home :-)
Please share this photo - I really want people to see the kind of dogs that are available in all our shelters.
