Volunteer banned from shelter after photos of badly injured dog cause stir.
Maria Sanchez dedicates much of her time toward helping the dogs who are incarcerated at the San Bernardino, Calif. City Animal Control. Sanchez took it upon herself to go to the facility to take photos of the dogs who were not yet listed on the facility's website.
Recently, however, Sanchez was banned from returning to the shelter to continue her charitable work.
According to Sanchez, she has been banned because of a photo that she took of a dog who was badly injured, but not being treated. The dog, a pit bull, had a blue rope deeply embedded in her neck.
Sanchez alleges that the dog had been suffering, at the facility, for six days with the rope buried in her flesh.
Please contact the shelter and demand that they become more rescue and animal friendly, and humane! City of San Bernardino Animal Control, 333 Chandler Place, San Bernardino, CA (909) 384-1304
