15-year-old Labrador retriever surrendered when her family could no longer afford her care

A 15-year-old Labrador retriever had the misfortune to have been surrendered by her family on August 12 to the Carson Animal Care Center. As is so often the excuse, Jazzy’s former owners told shelter personnel they could no longer afford to care for their dog.Jazzy 15

Jazzy is friendly and gets along with other dogs, but she is not doing well in the shelter. Tragically Jazzy’s eyes display a defeated look; a reminder to everyone that dogs do feel the loneliness and separation when they are left behind. How long has this sweet dog lived with her fly bitten ears and the sores on her back?

Carson Shelter is located at 216 Victoria Street in Gardena, California.

    And what kind of care does this dog need that the family suddenly can’t afford! Praying she finds her way out to a loving home!

    She’s so sweet. She wagged her tail when they called her by name. It looks like she’s been mistreated for quite some time. Poor baby.

    Praying someone finds it in their heart to give her a really nice place to lay her head down for whatever time she has left. The poor sweet soul.
    We adopted a 10 year old Lab and he is now 13 1/2 and he is an amazing boy.
