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

Because of us these animals are suffering!!! And this is the price that they pay how dare we!!! This is why for those who truly love their animals allow them to live in their ripe old age regardless!

It is good news that Otto is getting professional help. The City of Baldwin Park should have a vet on call to take care of these situations. If they do not, perhaps they should add it into their budget and see if they can get it funded by the philanthropists.

I wish I had any money but I am facing a shut off on my electric in 111 degree heat. I have sent this all over the place. I hope they just tke him to the vet asap.

If this dog is so very ill, wouldn't it be kinder to put him to sleep? Have we any indication if medication etc will restore him to a full and active life? I have two rescue dogs, but if they were that ill, think it would be cruel to let them suffer more.

Brian I am not a vet but the human nurse in me says at least give him a chance as all it may take is IV fluids, antibiotics and painkilling injection, and only then if that doesn't work, then PTS, but only after trying.

Baldwin Park Shelter has been known as a hell hole, but surrounding cities contract with them for animal control. My lost Golden was listed at the BP shelter as an Irish Setter!
