Surrendered to Carson Animal Care in California on Wednesday, dressed in their winter sweaters, brokenhearted senior chihuahua and poodle mixes Romeo and Juliet snuggle together to help each other stay brave in a frightening shelter. Surrounded by the loud noises of clanking food bowls, dogs barking and an intercom system that repeatedly calls out for someone to report to the information desk, Romeo and Juliet shiver in pure fright.
The closely bonded dogs – Romeo, 8, and Juliet, also 8-years-old, had been turned into the shelter because their owner no longer wanted to bear the responsibility of caring for them. And although Shakespeare’s drama “Romeo and Juliet” ended in tragedy, it is hoped that these two can find a new home together and rewrite one of the saddest endings. Share their plights with approved rescue organizations, friends, family and social media contacts. Sharing saves lives.
