Update 12/11/16: Rescued!

A senior dog, in the twilight of her life, is sad and confused after being left at a busy, loud and frightening California animal control agency this week. The 11-year-old dog, named “Lucky,” is anything but lucky right now. Instead, she is baffled as to why she is sitting in a stark, lonely kennel run, surrounded by the barks and cries of other distressed dogs, instead of at her home, with her family.

Lucky was surrendered to the Carson Animal Services facility on December 7 – there is no way that she could have ever imagined winding up in an animal shelter, away from all that she once knew.

Please help this senior dog find a new family to spend the remainder of her life with – she has done nothing to deserve her current situation. Adoption information below:

    Is it that people can’t cope, due to themselves being infirm etc.? How is it that you can look after (presumably care?) for a lovely soul such as this, just to abandon it? Or is it that people think so much to themselves and their own jet-setting lifestyles that what’s left just gets dumped? You do that to trash, not living beings, be they cat or dog! 11 years of family life, what the hell was the point. A real crying shame that it didn’t end up with a more caring family to begin with so that it could have been spared this potentially soul-shattering experience. We as humans wouldn’t like it would we. I don’t know the whole story but something’s surely not right if it’s being posted on a site such as this.

    I would suppose Lucky was a member of a family for most of her 11 years and now she is disposable? I look at my 11 year old German Shepherd and even though he is slowing down and has stinky breath, is costing me in Vet bills, i could never do this to him. I don’t know what their excuse is, but I pray Lucky finds a loving family for her last days,

      My boy BINGO was 11 years when he on 23 Oct 2016. He had cancer, for which there was nothing that could be done except try to keep him comfortable. I don’t regret the vet bills that I incurred for him. I loved that dog unconditionally and I stayed with him till he took his last breath. Now, he sits on my shelf in his urn where he is resting peacefully.

    This poor baby did not deserve to be left at a shelter. I am so sure Lucky is afraid and cannot understand why his owners left him there. He is more than confused. I would take him but I live in Wisconsin and already have 3 dogs of my own and cannot take on another one. I hope someone will come forward and take this adorable baby.

    Why get angry and judge a family without knowing the facts. I’m sure it was not an easy decision whatever the circumstances.

    • Wendy Green says:

      Kelly Jelly Jr many times it is an EASY decision for the family-an older dog is more work-costs more money(at the Vet) and God forbid the family would make some changes in their little life so the dog would be happy and comfortable.Too many people are selfish and have no compassion. My own dog is 14 years old-she was born in my closet-she is losing her sight and her hearing and has to eat small amounts 8x a day. Other than that she is doing fine-still runs to the front door for her food-she is happy-rolls in the grass etc. How could I not do this for her after she has given me (and my husband) her LOVE and LOYALTY her entire life and is still doing that! How utterly sad and confusing to her and any dog to be in a shelter environment-I would not be able to live with myself if I EVER did such a thing……………

    People who attempt to DUMP family members because they are old should be penalized severely. Poor dog. I hope this sweet baby finds a home soon and is saved from being MURDERED.
