I couldn't be happier to hear that poor Otto has been taken to get proper veterinary care, and will soon be loved like he deserves. <3

We desperately need better supervision of these shelters. This is everywhere, not just Baldwin.

I hope Otto makes it through all of this. The amount of feces is a lot and he is dehydrated. How on earth did he get in this awful condition after such a short time at Baldwin shelter??!! This is deplorable. They should let the rescue take him tonight and go to an emergency vet clinic. I hope they get an IV going in him to help stabilize him .

PlacesThese are the kindof places we need like we all need a bullet to our heads, bullshit we dont need those places we need more places that are recueing and caring and loving animals not sick hateful animal killers do to them as they do to thise poor helpess animals.

These shelters are supposed to be safe places for these animals, not hell holes where they are plopped in a cage & forgotten & not given medical care when they need it. I would rather see them close their doors than let animals live in these conditions!! If they don't have the staff to handle it, or won't handle it, then shut them down, just like any hoarder or puppy mill is shut down when they get in over their heads!!
