Jennifer Leder is among the kind people all over Cleveland constantly stepping up to speak up for discarded abused and neglected animals. 

Recently while driving in The Flats, she encountered a situation that can only be described as heart breaking.  Jennifer noticed dog in need of help.

"She was an emaciated beautiful pit bull with boobs hanging down to the floor approaching cars not aggressively asking for help, jumping up.  ‘Can I have food?'"

Jennifer says that the dig jumped into her car, sat in the passenger seat, looked at her with big eyes and would not get out.

Jennifer decided to take the dog to the Cleveland Kennel but she was so touched that she decided to make a Youtube video and Facebook page for the dog she calls "Angel".

"You could tell she was an old soul.  She was sweet and asking me for help."

"I can rescue her from The Flats but now she needs to be rescued out of here; cage 136"

Jennifer says that she would take her home herself but her circumstances won't allow her to adopt a dog her size.

"I have special needs Chihuahuas."

Jennifer was so inspired that she was able to leave the kennel with a little rescue dog despite not being able to adopt Angel.

Her Christmas wish is for someone to foster or adopt Angel, the dog she describes as a "gentle soul" who is worth the second chance she's asking for.

"I need someone to step up to take her for the holidays.  She just needs love and food."

The Cleveland Kennel on W. 7th Street has extended their adoption hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays until December 19th and waiving the adoption fee.
