This is the photo that has gone viral and my research shows that it is from author/writer Walid Shoebot, so let me give him a by-line.

Not enough time to research this and make my own article. Images that have gone viral are so sad. These are service dogs, ready to do their job no matter what the condition, but when their services were not needed anymore, their lives snuffed. How I would’ve loved to rescue these friends. My discussions with others have led to arguments that the world has bigger problems but this should strike everyones nerve. As I have previously said, judging for me is just an avocation but my love of my canine friends is just as what St. Francis describes.
