The heartbreaking video of Hailie, the senior Mastiff surrendered on March 1 at the Carson Animal Care Center, brought tears to both shelter staff and volunteers. The eight-year-old dog’s owners told the shelter personnel she could no longer care for their dog who had been with her since she was a puppy- but who could explain the tragic situation to Hailie?

On the Facebook page of Saving Carson Shelter Dogs, the following comments were posted – softly reminding advocates to concentrate on helping Hailie. It is indeed tragic that this dog knew something very frightening was happening, and she tried with all the courage she could muster on perhaps the worst day of her life to be brave, as she was finally but reluctantly pushed into the cart on her way to the shelter’s intake area:
“This is a REALLY UPSETTING VIDEO of a sweet senior named HAILEY getting surrendered. The staff were visibly upset during the intake process as well. She is getting placed in the roller cart that the staff use to transport the dogs through the kennels to the medical intake.
The owners didn’t say why except they could not take care of her anymore. This will make you so angry at the owner but what HAILEY needs now is support, a FOSTER and RESCUE and Pledges for her MEDICAL CARE and she needs out FAST; this has to be the worst and most confusing night of her life! Please SHARE or consider FOSTERING…”
