Annapolis, MD – At just the tender age of two, Aspen has known little, if any kindness, and she is staring in the face of death.
Aspen is sitting in a shelter in Annapolis. Her gaunt body is covered in pressure wounds that developed from laying on hard surfaces covered in filth – more than likely, her own bodily waste.
Despite the neglect that she has clearly suffered, she oozes sweetness. Her body constantly swings from side to side in happiness when a person approaches.
She wants nothing more than to share her love with someone kind enough to accept it.
Aspen isn’t the prettiest dog in the shelter. She isn’t the healthiest dog in the shelter. But she could be the sweetest.
Despite her loving demeanor, she still may die. Her time has nearly run out and no one has stepped up to offer her a safe haven.
Aspen needs a loving hand, a soft bed, some quality food and more than anything love and compassion.
Aspen has shown no aggressive tendencies towards dogs, or even cats. In fact, when walked through a room of hissing, mewling cats, she merely did what she always does, thumped her happy tail and paid them no attention.
Aspen’s pull fee has been sponsored, but she needs someone to offer to foster her.
Anyone interested in helping Aspen out of the shelter – of offering her the gift of life – is asked to email [email protected].
If you can’t help Aspen directly, please take two seconds out of your day to share her story. If a rescue does not step up in time, Aspen will become another statistic.
She won’t be a loved pet that gently passes away after a long, happy life. She will be a dog that died too young because she was abandoned and then killed.
Aspen deserves the chance to be loved. Aspen deserves the opportunity to experience happiness. Aspen deserves to live.
