Meet Abby; just one day after celebrating Independence Day, this sweet eight-year-old Labrador retriever hardly has any reason to celebrate. More than likely Abbey was picked up as a stray and is microchipped. Where is her family and why aren’t they looking for her? Abby quietly waits for them to return at the Inland Valley Humane Society in Pomona, California.

Her sadness shows in her demeanor; almost as if she has no hope.

    Shared Abby. Does anyone know why there is a three week time period between when a dog can be adopted until they can be rescued? Not too familiar with this shelter.

    Sharing Abby with love and prayers to find her a loving home. Damn her owners for walking away from her. Karma to them and I hope they have no peace in heart, mind and soul with nightmares for the rest of their pathetic lifes.

    Such a sad, sweet girl!!! I”m sure there is someone out there who would love her and make her happy. I bet she’d give 100x the love back. Won’t someone adopt her??

    Hope Abby’s owners are looking for her and just have not looked at the right shelters. What a sad,dejected look on this dog, without all things familiar to her.She looks like such a nice dog too. Hope she finds a home or even a foster soon.
