Jelly Belly, as he has been named, looks like he arrived just in time at Baltimore Animal Rescue & Care Shelter (BARCS).
Severely emaciated, the three-year-old dog was abandoned at BARCS after being, from all indications, nearly starved to death.
Staff at BARCS describe Jelly Belly as a “sweet soul.”
“He is so forgiving of humans … what happened to him just isn’t fair.”
Rescue organizations interested in taking in Jelly Belly should contact BARCS adoption counselor Kathleen Knauff (firstname.lastname@example.org)

The Pennsylvania SPCA (PSPCA) is making an urgent appeal to the community to provide foster homes for dogs in need.
“The Animal Care & Control Team shelter (111 W. Hunting Park Avenue) and the PSPCA Adoption Center (350 E. Erie Avenue) in Philadelphia are full to capacity and we’ve tapped out our existing network of foster parents,” the organization says. “If you can provide temporary housing for a dog, we will provide free medical care and support in return. Foster homes are needed immediately! The longer you can foster the dog, the more lives we can save.”
To help, contact ACCT Lifesaving Manager Natalie Smith at email@example.com or (267) 385-3800 (ask for the “Lifesaving Department”), or contact PSPCA Director of Adoptions, Rescue, and Foster Care Ray Little at firstname.lastname@example.org or (215) 426-6300 (ask for the “Adoptions Counter”).
To see some of the dogs in need of foster care, visit the PSPCA website.
