Shame on Roxie’s owner. This poor gal showed up as a stray at Carson Animal Care Center on Friday. Full of fleas, practically hairless from scratching and so scared, she cowers, but shows no aggression. Roxie has been placed in the medical section so she can be cared for and rest more comfortably.

#A5197383 My name is ROXIE and I’m an approximately 8 year old female Terrier. I am not yet spayed. I have been at the Carson Animal Care Center since 7/6. I will be available on 7/10. You can visit me at my temporary home at C404.

    I pray someone in California will rescue this precious, abused little soul….what a cute yet sad face. It is clear she has not had a very good life. She deserves a loving HOME with compassionate people. Please help this sweet little girl.

    PLEASE some kind person step up for Roxie – she did nothing to deserve the lousy treatment she received – I bet she was dumped by some inbred ghetto scum who couldn’t be bothered – she deserves a home, not death. And Carson has a horrible reputation of killing animals daily. These shelters need to stop treating animals like disposable objects – there are other options rather than killing them. The public needs to start caring about the fate of animals dumped in shelters – they are victims of self centered, irresponsible scum whose only concern is themselves.
