It’s a rhetorical question asked over and over again in the rescue world – how does it come to be that a 15-year-old dog nearly blind and with medical needs winds up as a stray? And so it happened again, to an obviously neglected senior Yorkie, and now the frightened, lost and confused little dog shivers in the medical section of Carson Animal Care.

“…hard to fathom someone could drop this little guy off anywhere outdoors to fend for himself? Covered in fleas, scratching uncontrollably and this is how he gets to spend his senior years …”
