Shelter intake employees hear a variety of explanations from people who bring their pets in to be surrendered…from “I’m moving,” to, “I have developed allergies.” At times, however, the lack of regard from the surrendering owner can move volunteers and staff to tears.
This week, a man brought his two 12-year-old dogs to an open-door animal control agency in San Bernardino, California. When questioned, the man stated that the dogs had lived a good life…and that he was okay with them being euthanized, because “they’ve had a good 12 years.”
