Whenever one thinks they may have seen the most heartless situation at an open admission animal shelter, another soulless act occurs; this time tears flowed freely down the cheeks of volunteers and shelter staff at Carson Animal Care. Blackie’s family surrendered their ten-year-old Welsh Corgi wrapped in a plastic garbage bag – carrying her in a cardboard box. They claimed she had a tumor that had been bleeding, yet they refused medical help. Instead they decided to just dump her. And despite her family turning their backs on her when she needed them the most, Blackie remained happy.
The Carson staff unwrapped Blackie and cleaned her up. She is in need of immediate help.
