Update – Adopted!
Family circumstances have forced a beloved, senior dog to be surrendered to a busy animal control agency in California. The dog, nine-year-old “Katana,” was surrendered to the Los Angeles County Animal Services facility in Downey on February 8 by the daughter of ailing parents who could no longer keep her.
The heartbreaking situation was explained in a Facebook post:
This beautiful 9 year old girl is loved and cherished by a family who can no longer keep her. In tears a daughter of ailing parents pleads to Downey Staff and volunteers to help her parents dog. Her parents are in and out of the hospital and can’t care for Katana like they use to.
Katana has lost her family and now she is reliant upon the kindness of strangers. Please take a moment to share this lovely senior dog’s adoption information and help her find somewhere safe to go.
