A 15-year-old dog named Zeke has found himself without a home just before Thanksgiving. The elderly mixed breed dog was taken to the Los Angeles Animal Services – East Valley Shelter on November 19.
A dog lover posted Zeke’s heartbreaking plight to Facebook, along with what she learned about the reason for his surrender:
“ZEKE (A0794711) was surrendered (aka ‘dumped’) at the East Valley Animal Shelter by the only family he has known, because they were “moving.” His body language showed such fear and his eyes such sadness, and my heart broke. Even looking at this photo of him makes me want to cry.”
For 15 years, Zeke lived with his family – now, in the twilight of his life, he is alone. Undoubtedly he is confused and most assuredly he is frightened and sad. Please help share Zeke’s plight – he didn’t ask to be homeless and he certainly deserves to be noticed and adopted.
