Did you know that owner-surrendered dogs are the first animals to be put down when animal control agencies are full? Did you know that some of these facilities literally have a sign in the lobby alerting owners that their surrendered pet will immediately be euthanized? Despite the grave warnings, cats and dogs are surrendered at an alarming rate to animal control agencies across the nation.
It is a cruel fate for too many unwanted pets and a threat to a young (year old) pup who was just surrendered to a busy Texas animal control agency in Harris County. The German shepherd/Husky mix, Samsung, was dropped off by his owner on Thursday.
Because he is an owner surrendered dog, there is no guaranteed hold time – which means that if the facility is full, they can walk him to a back room and his life will be quietly ended.
Please help Samsung beat the odds by sharing this article with his adoption information. Time is of the essence!
