Update 11/6/16: Safe!

On Sunday, October 30, a 15-year-old, mostly blind dog, was left at a high-intake California animal control agency by his family who told staff at the shelter that they were “too busy” to keep their dog. The senior dog, named “Loki,” is understandably confused by the sudden upheaval in his life and he could use a helping hand to find a new home, and leave the animal control building.

Shortly after Loki was surrendered, the Facebook page, Saving Carson Shelter Dogs, wrote:

LOKI is 15 and he was left by his busy family. He is a beautiful soul and he is trying to understand where he is by walking around and checking things out, he seems to be mostly blind.

Loki is being held at the Carson Animal Services facility in Gardena, California. Please share his adoption information to help him find a rescue agency, or a loving new home.

    “Too busy” a good excuse for dumping a little 15 year old dog! How much time could this little dog take out of their “busy” day? Prayers Loki find his way out so he can spend his remaining days in a loving home.

      Exactly…..there’s no way that little dog takes very much time. He probably doesn’t even need to go for walks anymore, at least not for more than 5 or 10 minutes.

    This just doesn’t happen in Calif. there are high kill shelters throughout the United States it happens at all of them.
    I wish the karma upon assholes who did this to Loki, if I had my way I’d drop them in one see how they like it! Probably got a new younger pup already…
