A neglected 16-year-old poodle named Tigger was surrendered on Monday to Carson Animal Care. His family asked that their dog be euthanized because he was old. Of course, Tigger doesn’t understand. Once the only family he has ever known walked out of his life, and the frightened pup was placed in a shelter kennel, he huddled into the corner and shook.
A volunteer at the shelter has asked for Tigger to be moved to the medical ward where it is quieter and much more personal.
“We asked them to put a blanket but he won’t go inside…He needs help as soon as possible.”
