Sunset and Logan...

... is in the commercial heart of Echo Park. It is where you can find the Jensen's Building, whose tenants include a pawn shop that displays mostly power tools in the window and, soon, a fancy ultra-vegan restaurant. The fish place, El Pescado Mojado (sorry for the redundancy if you speak Spanish), sits on the opposite corner. There is lots of foot traffic, it's a crossroad for all kinds of races, ethnicities, age groups, even species. This morning, a desperate mother was found there, possibly seeking help, possibly abandoned.

According to Laura Weekes, one of the neighborhood's most dedicated animal helpers:

I found a mama dog running down Sunset at Logan this morning. She is a large black, mastiff mix.
She is completely emaciated (I have never seen a dog so thin in person), but has has puppies very recently. She is lactating and still oozing out. ... I am concerned that there are puppies somewhere that are needing her. She was only too glad to have me put a leash on her and get in the car with me even with my crazy mutts in the back. She lay her big head on my lap the entire ride to Lacy Street. Her intake # is A1092773. No microchip.
PLEASE keep an eye and ear out for any puppies out there that might be hers.

Chicken Corner can only hope they are reunited.
