As shelter staff at the Brooklyn Animal Care Centers (BAAC) In New York City would concur, Layla, a 2-year-old pup goes nowhere without her favorite stuffed animal. Layla loves that toy so much in fact, that sometimes staff has to intervene and take it away temporarily, so she doesn’t forget to eat.
This is quite an adorable thing on the surface, however, Layla’s reality is much more stark. The BAAC is not the nurturing shelter, where dogs and cats receive care and attention before they find loving homes. In fact, it is the exact opposite. In fact, the BAAC is a high kill shelter where the animals trapped in the facility are given just weeks and sometimes even just days to find homes before they are “humanely euthanized”
In fact, it is the exact opposite. The BAAC is a high kill shelter where the animals trapped in the facility are given just weeks and sometimes even just days to find homes before they are “humanely euthanized.”
Layla is no different and just last Friday, she was moved to the back room known in shelter parlance as “death row.” As she got the news, Layla, cuddled up to her toy, to find comfort in the only thing that makes her happy. Sad indeed.
Fidonation, if you or someone you know is interested in giving this precious pup the forever family she rightfully deserves, please contact the BAAC at (212) 788-4000 and reference the shelter ID #A1113134.
Additionally, please share this story on Facebook or Twitter so we are closer to finding Layla a home. ❤️
