On Monday, what has to have been a truly heartless owner, a 20-year-old spaniel was surrendered to the high kill Lancaster Animal Care Center in California. Oh come on! If only our own dogs could have been graced with such a long life, most of us would smile as we lovingly caressed them and fiercely protected them. A volunteer at the shelter told Arnold’s story:
“This poor 20 year old man was just surrendered by his family to LA county’s second highest kill shelter. 20 years old, and he’s now in an overcrowded animal shelter. Beyond heartbreaking. Please share him for rescue.
Hospice foster needed.”
“My name is ARNOLD and I’m an approximately 20 years old male cocker span. I am already neutered. I have been at the Lancaster Animal Care Center since July 16, 2018. I am available on July 16, 2018. You can visit me at my temporary home L722.”
According to Arnold’s description by the shelter, this sweet senior was turned in because he was “too old.” Please share this dog’s plight with approved rescue organizations, friends, family and social media contacts. Sharing saves lives. A Facebook page for Arnold and rescue efforts can be followed here.
