E-listed dog – Coco has given up after being surrendered by family

It has only been a week, but a sad dog has already given up after being surrendered to a busy Texas animal shelter. Four-year-old Coco, a Labrador retriever mix, was surrendered to the Corpus Christi Animal Care Center on October 6 – for reasons unknown, her family decided to relinquish their pet to the facility.

      I think it’s shameful that this company is posting this video and comments up when it was almost a year ago this incident happened.
      So you’re being very dishonest by posting this and trying to play on people’s hearts. You know there are hundreds of thousands of people like me who fight for animal rights every single day of Our lives. I have been rescuing dogs and cats for 40 years. I find it disgraceful that you would put this article and try to make the audience feel like it is happening right now. You have no shame whatever company this is.

    Dogs have no understanding why they are given up and away from all things familiar in their lives.You can’t explain anything to an animal, it is what they feel. Some can handle it temporarily, others are so devastated that they shut down quickly. Shelters are suppose to be just that, shelter,protect,and hopefully comfort. Pray that this dog, Coco gets adopted quickly and with a family that will love her forever.

    Please keep sharing sweet Coco. Hoping and praying someone will see her and want her. She desperately needs out of the shelter. She’s given up. She doesn’t understand why she ended up there. She needs out soon, her time is up on Oct. 23, 2018. That isn’t a lot of time for her to find her forever home. Please keep sharing her photo and hopefully someone will have room in their heart and home to take her and love her forever. She will forever be grateful. Share share share to get this girl out alive!????
