In Houston, Texas, an inconvenient dog named Molly senses she is no longer important to her family. At five-years-old, the dachshund and Chinese Shar pei mix sits in a kennel cage at an overcrowded shelter.

Molly was adopted as a puppy from BARC in 2015. She was surrendered on Wednesday because her family will be traveling for two months and couldn’t find anyone to keep her.

“We have a small dog with deformed front legs. She growls in cage but warms up after a while of sweet talking. Adopted from BARC as a puppy in 2015. Available for rescue,” her description stated.

Share this little one’s plight with approved rescue organizations, friends, family and social media contacts. Sharing saves lives. Sadly, surrendered pets are often the first ones humanely euthanized because of overcrowded shelters. Surely Molly deserves better.

    Hope this treasure finds her way into a better home where she will be treated as a beloved family member…….

    There is an alternative to leaving pets at a shelter due to travel plans: It’s called a “boarding kennel”. Some are run by veterinarians for their clients, others take animals from “anyone” for boarding, provided the animals have vet certification.

    Surprised this POS family had the brains to get packed and drive to the airport, train station…….

    They’ve earned reserved spaces in Hell where they will burn forever for their cruelty.

    I would suggest that this family travel to Mexico. I know just the place they should visit and the road they should take to get there. There just might be a “welcoming committee” waiting for them enroute to their destination. It would serve them right. Or, maybe they should fly on one of those Boeing airplanes; you know the ones. That would work just as well but might be bad for other passengers unless they were all animal abusers. Whereever you go people, I hope you never make it back.
