An odd piece of dog info popped up on the Echo Park Animal Alliance list serv this morning. Yesterday, someone "surrendered" an even-ten "friendly" spotties at Northeast Animal Shelter, known around here as Lacy Street. What kind of person has ten dalmations? I had to ask myself. Who "surrenders" -- dumps -- ten dalmations? A hoarder? Don't tell me they're movie dogs. That pretty pup on your widescreen TV could be a dead dog at the pound.
Meanwhile, the subject lines in some of the postings from the EPAA have been too heartbreaking to even open the files today. This morning someone is pleading for the life of a "sweet" dog who apparently is running out of time at Lacy Street. Gotta make room for the new arrivals. And sometimes they arrive in batches of ten.
Impound IDs and details for the dalmations after the jump.
