A senior dog has been left with a broken heart after her owner surrendered her to a busy California animal shelter. The eight-year-old dog, named Tessa, arrived at the Carson Animal Services facility in Gardena on April 19. The volunteer-run Facebook page, Saving Carson Shelter dogs, wrote:
Sweet TESSA is really struggling in the Shelter and she needs some help now. Please SHARE for her life, she’s SO heartbroken and a FOSTER or ADOPTER would save her. Thanks!
One look at Tessa’s photo reveals the depth of her fear and sadness – her eyes show her uncertainty. Tessa’s former family said that they no longer had time for her – now, Tessa is not guaranteed time and she is relying on the kindness of strangers to save her life.

Did you know that if you want to get updates from a Facebook page, you have to do more than just “like” it? To get recent postings in your Facebook feed, you must also hover your mouse over the word “following” and then click “see first” from the drop-down menu. You may want to check back with your favorite pages on occasion because Facebook often changes your settings, no longer having your favorites among those to “see first.”
