5/3/16 The shelter reports Tinsel is adopted and safe! Thanks to all who crossposted for her.
This little one sure deserves a break. Tinsel came into the shelter with her brother Benny. She was adopted in December 2015. It turned out that she was very early pregnant when she was adopted. The shelter does try to have all pets spayed/neutered before leaving shelter, and there is a voucher system too. But sometimes vets are over-busy. Tinsel either wasn't determined to be pregnant or maybe she got pregnant by Benny, or they were so busy that she fell through the cracks. When the adopters found out, they chose to let her have the puppies to sell for profit; they then returned Tinsel to the pound. How nice is that!? She's in danger and has been waiting a long time for a deserving family. See her info on Petango:
