We decided to feature a dog today who’s been at the Town Lake Animal Shelter in Austin for almost a month (since August 25th). Meet Mandie, a beautiful brindle Pit Bull terrier/Boxer mix. She has a very friendly face and looks like she’d love to go for a run with you or play fetch in a big back yard. Her name makes us think of the song “Mandy” by Barry Manilow. The lyrics are especially true of many abandoned pets:
“Well you came and you gave without taking
but I sent you away, oh Mandy.”
Want to help this Mandie? She will give you so much—and just needs some love in return! Town Lake Animal Shelter is a kill shelter, which means Mandie’s days are numbered (and so is the pet who needs her spot in the adoption area). The sooner Mandie finds a home, the sooner that next puppy in line can avoid euthanasia and be moved into Mandie’s adoption kennel. So by saving one, you’re actually saving two…or three…or four.
Austin residents: Call Austin Town Lake Animal Center by dialing “311” on your landline or cell phone.
