15-years-old blind senior begging to be saved from deadly shelter

How does a 15-year-old dog who is blind and barely weighs six pounds wind up at the Manhattan’s facility of New York City Animal Care and Control? Volunteers begging for help saving this little dog can not imagine her sitting alone in the loud, cold and frightening shelter without someone helping her.

And yes, Thomasina needs a miracle. Share this little dog’s plight with friends, family, social media contacts and approved rescue organizations. Sharing saves lives.

Thomasina is eligible to be adopted by someone in the public. Doesn’t she deserve better than this? Please help.
