A family brought their blind senior dog to a busy open-intake animal control facility in California and asked the staff to put her down. The 13-year-old dog’s name is Kikay and she has been at the Carson Animal Services facility since September 6.
Still alive but confused
Though Kikay’s family asked for her to be euthanized, she is still alive, albeit confused. Imagine being plucked from your home and left with strangers…nothing sounds or smells the same. Nothing, absolutely nothing, is familiar. This is Kikay’s current reality.
The volunteer-run Facebook page, Saving Carson Shelter Dogs, wrote:
KIKAY was driven to the shelter by her family who felt this BLIND ANGEL was ready to be euthanized but they didn’t want to go to their Vet. Maybe she didn’t have a Vet ever because she is so full of fleas and dirty so she must have been outside for awhile. She is so CONFUSED and she needs help fast, she deserves so much better than this. Please SHARE for her life, she’s SO precious and a FOSTER or ADOPTER would save her.
