As both dogs stared in total confusion from behind the bars of the portable kennel cages their owner pushed them into on Monday afternoon at Carson Animal Shelter, the entire scene was one of both heartbreak and anger. The man had tethered the dogs with a belt – used both as a collar and a leash. Both dogs appeared to have suffered from neglect; their skin irritated with clumps of hair missing and their nails the size of rakes.
“He then literally flicked his finger at them and said ‘bye’ in the most hateful way…” stated long time volunteer Sal Valdepena. “The look of confusion was so sad. Honestly I wish I could have put them (owners) in the cages and take the dogs with me.”
So why were the dogs surrendered? According to their heartless owner, a new baby came into the home.
Meet Bentley who is four years old. Click here for his Pet Harbor listing: A4985684. “My name is Bently and I am described as a male, brown and white Pit Bull Terrier. The shelter thinks I am about 4 years old. I have been at the shelter since Aug 22, 2016.” For more information about this animal, call Los Angeles County Animal Control – Carson at (310) 523-9566.

And with Bentley came his bonded brother named Homer who is the same age. Click here for his Pet Harbor listing: A4985681. “My name is Homer and I am described as a male, brown and white Pit Bull Terrier. The shelter thinks I am about 4 years old. I have been at the shelter since Aug 22, 2016.”
Both dogs have been described as having beautiful and gentle personalities. Their skin conditions are very treatable, and they need help now. There is no waiting period for surrendered dogs; two more sweet pit bulls who desperately need help. Please share their plight with approved rescue organizations, friends, family and social media contacts. Sharing saves lives, and every life counts. The shelter is completely full. The Carson Shelter is located at 216 Victoria Street, Gardena, California. Phone: 310.523.9566.
