Dog update: the shelter didn't have a camera


Here is a picture of the mama dog who was found at Sunset and Logan. It took more than two days to see a photo because the shelter where she was taken, Lacy Street (as the northeast shelter is known around here) had a broken camera, which meant that no photos could be posted of new animals who had arrived around the time mama dog was brought in. Laura Weekes, who found the mastiff mix at the busy Echo Park intersection, came back to the shelter with her own camera after becoming frustrated that no picture of the dog was showing up on the animal shelter's internet site. Talk about invisible victims.

Meanwhile, a foster has been found for the lactating dog, and a permanent home will be sought. But mama and puppies have not been reunited. Not a word about the little ones.

Into the mix of good news and bad news as concerns LA Animal shelters, we toss the following: Shelters will finally be opened for part of the day on Sundays. It may not help the lost mastiff-mix puppies of Echo Park, but it may be a lifesaver for other dogs (and cats).
