Update 5/22/17: Electra has been adopted – safe and out of the building!
Meet Electra – a two-year-old dog who was left at the Inland Valley Humane Society in Pomona, California, on May 17. Electra’s face speaks volumes – she realizes that she has been left behind at the animal shelter, she realizes that her family is gone.
It is sadly amazing how few people actually realize (or care) about what happens to their surrendered pet – how few people truly understand the emotional impact that being left behind has on a dog.
ADOPTED ELECTRA IS AVAILABLE NOW FOR PUBLIC ADOPTION. PLEASE KEEP SHARINGELECTRA represents the face os sadness and reality in the shelters. Sometimes I would like to understand owners surrendering their animals and I don't like to judge them but when you see how the dogs come to the receiving department with their happy faces and they stand all proud I just can't understand.. (I'm speaking in general, not sure if she was found as stray or she was an owner surrendered) ELECTRA is available now for public adoption. Hopefully she can leaves soon. Please share so people know she is there.

Please contact them for any INFORMATION and/or UPDATES. Adoptions have to be made in person. Potential adopters have to bring their other dogs (if any) for a meet and greet. Im only a net-worker therefore, i do not have pulling rights. I name the dogs for my personal references, the shelter doesn't know those names so always make sure to ask for a dog by their control number not by their name to avoid confusion.INLAND VALLEY HUMANE SOCIETYPOMONA CA909 623-9777VIDEO THREAD https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1839944282992583&set=a.1454924388161243.1073741829.100009310861488&type=3&theater

An advocate for Electra wrote, “ELECTRA represents the face of sadness and reality in the shelters.

The change in Electra’s face from the time that her intake photo was taken, to her face inside of the kennel run, is dramatic, and heartbreaking. Upon intake, the reality of what was happening had not taken hold – obviously, a short time later this intuitive dog realized her fate.
Please share Electra’s adoption information before she becomes nothing more than a sad statistic.
