Too frightened to even look: Shelter pup cries when left alone

How it emotionally hurts to be a frightened dog left alone in an unfamiliar and noisy shelter; what happened to Carter? The eight-year-old German Shepherd/ Labrador mix has been at the Ramona Humane Society, located in San Jacinto, California, since April 24. A volunteer tells his heartbreaking story:

“Carter wants someone to stay with him in his kennel. He cries when he is left alone. When someone tries to take him out of the kennel to go outside, he drops to the ground. The loud, scary sounding barking dogs all around him have him terrified.”

A Facebook page for Carter can be followed here.  He does well with people and can be adopted, fostered or rescued by an approved organization.  More information about Carter can be found at Romana Rescue Friends Network.  It is reported the dog came in as a stray and weighs 67 pounds. He is up-to-date on shots, de-wormed and gets along with other dogs. Share his story with friends, family and social media contacts. Sharing saves lives. (Reference #118008)

SWEET CARTER…I LOVE YOU.~KATHY STEVENS~ AND THERE WERE MORE VIDEOS..SHOWING POOR CARTER TOO SCARED TO EVEN LOOK UP…KNOWING THIS THEY SHOULD HAVE PUT HIM INTO FOSTER HOME ASAP OR SOMEONE SHOULD HAVE STAYED WITH HIM, INSTEAD THEY LEFT HIM ALONE, THEN FOUND HIM ‘UNRESPONSIVE’ ON FLOOR OF HIS CAGE SO THEY EUTH’D HIM~~~THAT’S ‘SAVING’ AND BEING ‘HUMANE’??? NOT IN MY BOOK….THEY’RE NOT FIT TO BE CALLED A ‘HUMANE’ SOCIETY…THEY COULD HAVE SAVED HIM BUT LEFT HIM ALONE TERRORIZED AND ALONE. THAT’S PURE ABUSE AND NEGLEC IN MY OPINION…AT LEAST NOW HE’S IN THE ARMS OF JESUS WHERE NO ONE ELSE CAN HURT OR FAIL HIM LIKE WE HUMANS DID BUT HE SHOULD BE ALIVE . I PRAY THERE WAS AN ANGEL WITH HIM BECAUSE HE WAS ALONE WHEN HE COLLAPSED OUT OF PURE TERROR….THIS PLACE NEEDS SHUT DOWN.

        “We” includes you. The shelters need your help, not your criticism. Pls go to your local shelter & sign up to be a volunteer. My eyes & heart were opened 2.5yrs ago. My only regret is that I didn’t start volunteering sooner!

      This is heartbreaking, No one came to help him. Did they even try to find out what was wrong when he collapsed? It makes you sick!

    RIP Carter – Carter was found unresponsive in his kennel this morning and he was euthanized. So sad, he was so scared from the beginning.
