An ailing senior dog is doing her utmost to get through the days alone at a busy California animal shelter after her family gave her up. According to the volunteer-run Facebook page, Saving Carson Shelter Dogs, eight-year-old Ginger was surrendered on March 31 because her former owners could not afford her anymore.
Ginger has a variety of maladies including a bilateral ear infection, dry eye, small mass on one of her eyes, matted fur and a possible problem with her spine (she walks slowly and may have urinary incontinence issues). Ginger is all alone in the world – and nobody has expressed interest in saving her from her current situation.
With no family of her own, Ginger now relies upon the kindness of strangers who will share her plight, and help her leave the Carson Animal Services facility.
