A 15-year-old dog, in the twilight of his life, is suddenly homeless after his former family decided that they were no longer up for the responsibility of dog ownership. The dog, a cocker spaniel named Charlie, was surrendered to the Carson Animal Services facility in California on April 22 – because owner surrendered dogs do not get the luxury of a safe period for “stray hold,” Charlie immediately became available for adoption.
Shortly after Charlie arrived to the busy animal control agency, the volunteer-run Facebook page, Saving Carson Shelter Dogs, wrote:
My former family who owned me for more than 5 years had to give me up because they just weren’t up for the responsibility of a pet. But they said that I spend most of my time indoors. I seem to be good with small children. I am housetrained. I am good on a leash. I am just learning obedience skills. I seem to get along well with dogs and cats.
This senior dog has lost everything that he once knew – unfortunately, the facility is full and he is at risk of not making it out alive. Please take a moment to network Charlie’s adoption information and help him find a reputable rescue agency, or a loving owner, before it’s too late.
