On July 31, a senior Cocker spaniel was surrendered to the Carson Animal Services facility in Gardena, California. Her family told staff at the facility that they no longer had time for their 10-year-old dog.
The dog, named “Cherry,” is suffering from multiple maladies, including a heart murmur, infected eye, and a mass on her body. The Facebook page, Saving Carson Shelter Dogs, wrote:
CHERRY is so special and she’s still in the medical building needing some help. Please SHARE for her life, she is VERY special and a FOSTER or ADOPTER would save her.
Cherry needs to leave this facility and get much-needed veterinary care. On Thursday morning, the same Facebook page posted dire words indicating the how urgent the situation is at the facility:
There was almost 40 dogs that came in since yesterday and now there are 4 and 5 in the kennels which are completely FULL! The dogs and cats need your help now.
Please take a moment to network Cherry’s adoption information and help her leave this facility and get the help that she needs.
