On June 27, Jake’s life was turned upside down. The senior dog, age 10, was surrendered by his family to a busy California animal control agency and he was left to wonder what happened to everything that he once knew and loved.

Jake’s confusion and fear

According to the volunteer-run Facebook page, Saving Carson Shelter Dogs, Jake was so frightened and confused when he arrived that he spent 11 days hiding in the corner of his kennel. The post for Jake reads:

 JASON -7/08/18-


JASON spent 11 days not moving out of the corner after his family abandoned him and finally he is starting to trust again. He is so special and he needs help FAST, the shelter is FULL and he is in danger! Please SHARE for his life, he’s SO special and a FOSTER or ADOPTER would save him. Thanks!

    How do families just dump seniors without knowing whether they will live or die?Don’t they care about the lives of their loyal pets? Same loneliness should be felt by them in their senior years. Pray this little guy gets a foster and out of this shelter fast.

    This poor, terrified, precious little treasure……. OMG: my instinct is to snuggle him and reassure him the world is “OK”…….

    I just don’t understand how anyone could abandon a precious little treasure like Jake…. Seniors like Jake are absolute precious treasures (& mostly want to snuggle and snooze)……. perfect “low pressure” companions……

    I would give everything to snuggle my beloved treasure MacKitty (who passed away @ 14.5, waaaaaaay too soon from liver cancer)……

    There are special places in Hell reserved for Jake’s former so called family for their cruelty…….

    I hope Jake finds a new furever home ASAP…… If someone is coming to the SF Bay Area, he is welcome here….. I would be happy to foster him (probably “fail” as a foster since he would think our home is “perfect”)…….

    The monsters who surrendered this senior deserve to have their name on a National Registry for abuse and never allowed another pet!! This poor little guy is so scared and confused. Bad enough to surrender a pet you have raised…but to dump in a KILL SHELTER…. you have no heart, no soul…..and I hope Karma pays you a visit very, very, soon for your horrible deed.
