Senior mother and daughter, 17 & 15 dumped when no longer useful

Neither 17-year-old Chiquita nor her bonded offspring, 15-year-old Coco were ever spayed by their owner. Sadly, that status lends itself to the two females having been bred over and over again until they were no longer able to produce any more litters. And then it happened; mother and daughter were dumped at the Lancaster Animal Care Center on Tuesday; yesterday’s disposable companion animals.senior-mother-and-daughter-2a

Animal advocate and frequent volunteer Sal Valdepena was at the shelter to capture the heartbreaking moment:

“Senior mother & daughter pair dumped at 17 & 15 years old. Neither spayed. They cling to each other for comfort. do not separate them. All the have left is each other….. Hurry before they are split up forever.”

A Facebook page for the bonded seniors can be followed here. An adoption listing for Chiquita #A5017225 can be found here. “My name is Chiquita and I’m an approximately 17 year old female chihuahua sh.  I am not yet spayed.  I have been at the Lancaster Animal Care Center since December 6, 2016.  I am available on December 6, 2016.  You can visit me at my temporary home at L326.”

    PLEASE! Kind souls, consider helping two Senior Dogs that have been dumped at an Animal Shelter in California. They were tossed away like trash just because they could not produce O more litters of dogs. If you are able, God Bless!

I adopted 2 males that were dumped on the side of the road in MT and have given them the best life ever, they are spoiled rotten, the other is a female who was not spayed but is now and she was left a boarding kennel and her owners never came back for her, I will gladly rescue these 2 girls too..

    I am a retired Granny here in San Diego. I inherited a 15 year old little Chi, Cindy Lou, from my grandson. Cindy misses her 2 other playmates very badly and would LOVE to welcome these two little girls into our family. Is transport available to San Diego? They would be much loved and well taken care of here.
