An elderly, blind dog is crying with heartbreak and confusion after being abandoned with her senior friend. The bonded dogs are being held at the Palmdale Animal Care Center in California – the facility where they were left by their prior owner.
It’s difficult to imagine surrendering a dog to strangers…especially when leaving them behind could mean possible death. Dozens of concerned Facebook users have been frantically networking for this bonded pair of senior dogs, but no one has been able to commit to taking them in together.
The volunteer-run Facebook page for the shelter has posted the following information about these senior dogs, along with a video showing their distress (see below):
Palmdale Ca – #A5102144 (Angel is blind)
My name is Angel and I’m an approximately 12 year old female labrador retr. I am already spayed. I have been at the Palmdale Animal Care Center since August 18, 2017. I am available on August 18, 2017. You can visit me at my temporary home at P1505.
My former family who owned me for more than 5 years had to give me up because their landlord wouldn’t allow me. But they said that I spend most of my time indoors. I seem to be good with small children. I am housetrained. I am good on a leash. I seem to get along well with dogs and cats.
