Life at the high kill Baldwin Animal Shelter in California is no cake wake to say and write the least. The shelter, which is grappling with overcrowding, has to make very difficult decisions each and everyday, if dogs in their kennel run are unable to find homes. There is no hope at the Baldwin Animal Shelter. A great majority of the dogs who enter the facility, especially the hard to adopts (seniors, bully breed) are put down.
Photographer, and avid animal lover John Hwang captured a very touching moment he witnessed, while he was there on a routine visit taking photos of the ‘hard to adopts.’ He wrote about that moment on his Facebook page saying,
“Being in an unfamiliar environment, she felt the warm loving touch of Elaine and clung to her. All she wanted was to be held the whole time…”
The 18 -year-old Senior pup’s name is Muneca and she is completely blind. She is covered in ticks and fleas and has a slight case of treatable mange. Muneca has been at the Baldwin animal shelter since October 11. She is described as sweet, loving, kind, and very well behaved. A Petharbor listing for her reads,
“My name is Muneca and I am described as a spayed female, brown Dachshund – Longhaired. The shelter thinks I am about 18 years old. I have been at the shelter since Oct 10, 2016.”
