Yesterday, I was worried about the fate of a puppy I found behind my building. We called the animal shelter this morning to find out what has happened to it. They have the dog at the shelter, and the owner has not come to claim the dog yet. The shelter holds the animal for 96 hours, and then it goes up for adoption. It seems unlikely the owner wants his or his dog back.

So I’m putting this out there: if you are interested in a cute, friendly dog that needs some food and love, make a date to go down to the New Westminster animal shelter and see my little tripod friend. She’ll probably go up for adoption on Wednesday or Thursday.

Here is the contact information for New Westminster Animal Control:

The person at the shelter said the puppy is doing very well; she’s healthy and eating happily. Please pass this on to anyone you know who might want to adopt a puppy. Thanks!
