A 2.5 year old American Stafford was found abandoned at the door af a closed animal shelter in Rotterdam on Monday morning. The sad discovery was made even sadder by a note found with the dog. "Can't take care of him anymore, have no income and I'm on the street now", the dog's owner wrote.

"PLEASE take good care of him. He's a good dog. I couldn't do anything else - sorry", the note, which the police posted on Twitter, reads. "His name is Zion. 2.5 years old."

The police call on Zion's owner to come forward. Not for punishment, but for help, the officer wrote on Twitter.
