How does one deal with a broken heart; rather how does one explain to a 12-year-old dog with a broken heart as she lies in a caged kennel at the Lancaster Animal Shelter in California? Tippy was found in the desert. Her family stated she had been lost, but when they were notified Tippy had been found by chance, they told the shelter they no longer wanted her.
“Tippie” got lost in the desert… WHAT A LIE! When her “owners” were informed that she was at the shelter they DECLINED to come and get her!! Tippie has allergies and some hip problems which can be addressed, her BROKEN heart may never be mend. This old lady is severely depressed and needs a foster or qualified adopter able to deal with her issues NOW,” stated animal rescuer Kris Kelly, of the Kris Kelly Foundation in a Facebook post on Sunday evening.
