A dog that was found in a dumpster in Lakewood Ranch can be adopted by YOU!

Daisy is about 6 months old, according to volunteers at Manatee County Animal Services. She was found in a crate in a trash bin behind a gas station at Lakewood Ranch Boulevard and State Road 64 on June 10.

I know someone from Lakewood Ranch that saw the pup get rescued at the Speedway gas station next to Publix. The trash guys were loving on the dog before help came along. So sad things like this happen… Hope she gets a home very soon!

Daisy, after being abandoned in a dumpster earlier this week, remains a happy and loving 6 month-old puppy who wants to play all the time! She is searching for her forever family — MCAS is accepting in-person applications with adopters who can provide veterinarian references among other specific requirements. ❤️ #mcas #mcasadopt #adoptdontshop #manateecounty #shelterpets #rescueismyfavoritebreed#palmetto #dogsofinstagram #bullybreed
