On July 29, a gorgeous German shepherd named “Luna,” was dropped off at the Carson Animal Services facility in Gardena, California. Luna’s owners requested that the facility euthanize their dog, who is suffering from cancer.
After Luna was left at the facility, the Saving Carson Shelter Dogs Facebook page wrote about the sad situation:
LUNA has CANCER her owner wanted her Euthanized but the Shelter Vet was already gone and now she has to wait until tomorrow to see what will happen to her. Tonight she will feel so alone and scared and this is not what she deserves. Please SHARE and keep her in your thoughts.. the staff and Volunteers were all visibly upset when they left her at the Shelter…
Fortunately for Luna, strangers were willing to take her on, and take care of her for what time she has left. Luna was rescued by Marley’s Mutts Dog Rescue – the agency has vowed to be by her side when it is time for her to be released from her cancer-stricken body, something her own family failed to do.
Thanks to kind and compassionate strangers, she will not be alone.
