Declan was taken in as a stray by the San Bernardino City Animal Control in California and is believed to be around 2 years old, according to the Chicago Pets Examiner. No one came forward to claim him, so his only hope now is to be rescued or adopted.
A volunteer went to visit Declan at the shelter and filmed their encounter. In the video, Declan was so terrified that when the volunteer tried to get him to leave his enclosure, he simply lay down and refused. He looked overwhelmed and utterly defeated - until he was brought outside.
