In Lost Angeles County at the Agoura Animal Care Center, a scared dog realized in moments that his owner was deserting him. Tragically, the heartbreaking intake for surrendering a dog is a scene played out daily in every animal shelter.



Meet Smokey – who jumped out of his family’s car and almost immediately realized that he didn’t want to be at the shelter. Moments later, a shelter attendant separates him from his owner.

“His owner gave him a touch to his muzzle where we can only imagine Smokey has a split second of thinking maybe he won’t have to leave his owner’s side only to quickly realize that isn’t going to happen when he is led off to the Carson kennel,” the shelter posted on Facebook.

Smokey is only eight-months old and has realized everyone he depended on for love and security are gone. He will be evaluated by the shelter team who hope to have him feeling more confident. This puppy will need a patient, mature family who will help him to become a wonderful canine citizen.

    HEARTWRENCHING! I will never understand how people can do this?! How do they still sleep at night? They would probably abandon their children, too!
