Since April 23, a blind, 12-year-old Lhasa Apso has been waiting for her owner at Carson Animal Care Center. Is it any wonder no one has come to the shelter to rescue their best friend? Sadly, for Matilda, it is the worst of times; how could she have been so neglected when once she was so beautiful?


A volunteer writes:

“This sweet angel has been neglected and looks like she has had a rough life. She needs help now, she is pretty overwhelmed and confused. Please SHARE for her life, she’s SO precious and a FOSTER or ADOPTER would save her. Thanks!”

    Does anyone have contacts at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Utah? Or Frosted Faces based in San Diego, CA?

    I have heard of 2 other groups that take on challenging cases: Rescue Dogs Rock (East Coast placements from other areas) and No Paws Left Behind (I think they are based in Southern California)…… I wish I knew specific people to contact from these groups…..

    I am crying as I write this….. I wish I was in Southern California and able to help…… I would take her in a heartbeat but I am in Northern California……..

    She deserves a furever home where she will be a treasured family member (like our precious treasure MacKitty).

    It absolutely breaks my heart to think of this special treasure alone, afraid and worst of all, unloved in the shelters (I know that old, “special needs” animals are usually at the very top of the euthanasia lists)…….

    I can’t imagine ever giving up, let alone abandoning, a senior furbaby…….. The POS’s who abandoned this precious treasure will burn in Hell forever for their cruelty…….

    I would give anything to be able to cuddle and snuggle with MacKitty (I know he’s in Heaven with my Dad and our other furbaby angels, but his loss is still very painful).
