Happy update! This dog was adopted and is safe. But many others are waiting for rescue!
There is a dog, just one of many at risk of being killed, who lies with his body pressed against the door to his kennel. His legs protrude out the bottom as if saying, “Take me! I’m halfway out of this kennel already. Please get me out of here.” It’s as if he knows it is his last chance to get out of the shelter alive.
This dog who is so eager to get out of his kennel and into a home looks like a Great Pyrenees mix. That might explain his stoic demeanor. He seems to be waiting quietly and calmly for his fate — death at the end of a needle, which is what usually happens at this shelter, or rescued and given a chance at life.
This guy (or gal) was dumped in Claremont Park when college was over. He ended up at the Inland Valley Humane Society in Pomona, California. Was he adopted as a puppy at the beginning of the school year and now abandoned because the student went home for the summer? It’s possible. He looks like he was cared for before ending up in this high-kill shelter. But because the shelter doesn’t even give the dogs kennel cards with breed, sex, and ID numbers, it’s almost impossible to know much about him — or her.
What is known can be seen in the picture. A beautiful dog who is calm. A dog who wants out. A dog who is looking the photographer in the eye and trying to communicate. A dog who will die without rescue.

Inland does not post Kennel cards on their Dogs. You must call them directly for any additional information about the dogs. Give them the control number and/or the kennel number for the dog with a brief description of the dog. You can email Mreiss@ivhsspcaorg as well. The volunteers wrote:
Kennels that house multiple dogs are next to impossible for volunteers to get Control #s for. Pictures are taken and Kennel numbers provided. If a specific dog interests you, we encourage You to CALL or VISIT the shelter directly for status.
