Meet Sadie; she’s 13-years-old and just shivers in fear as she hopes her family will show up at the South Los Angeles Animal Shelter and scoop her up into their arms. Chances are Sadie has been tossed away to a shelter because she’s too old. When a senior arrives at the shelter as a “stray” does it not make one wonder what really happened? After all, when was the last time anyone saw a senior jump the fence or scamper quickly out the door? Shelter volunteer Joy Freiberg shares the little one’s tragic plight:
“I feel so bad for these little guys; it’s such a scary place. I wish there was a way to make it less scary, BUT I also wish people wouldn’t throw away an animal because it’s not a puppy anymore…It’s comparable to your 90-year-old grandparents making a run for it. Anyway, Sadie, my little lady, deserves a warm, safe home and a second chance. She is spayed and ready to go home.”
