Owner surrendered senior dog days before Thanksgiving

Spread the love

Days before Thanksgiving, a day to celebrate family and friends, a senior dog lost his home. The 12-year-old dog was loaded into a car and driven to the Harris County Public Health and Environmental Services in Houston, Texas, on November 25.

The now homeless dog, Ralf Lauren Socks, does not have the safety of a stray hold – he was immediately made available for adoption because his owner surrendered him. No “safe period” means that he can be put down if the shelter facility runs out of space…or if he gets sick…or if he displays behavior that staff finds concerning.

Please help this senior dog find a new, loving and committed owner. You can lend Ralf Lauren Socks a hand by sharing this article with his adoption information.

  1. People who surrender their senior pets are in the same category as trophy hunters and child molesters. What scumbags these people are! Senior pets deserve to be ared for in their “golden years” by the people they (the pets) have devoted their lives to, giving unconditional love and devotion. I hope they (the people) go straight to hell, do not pass go, and collect the “reward” they truly deserve.

  2. The POS family who abandoned this precious little treasure have reserved spots in Hell waiting for them. They will burn forever for their cruelty.

    WTF is wrong with people??? Most of us want our furbabies to be with us for as long as possible and we savor each and every day our precious treasures are with us…… Do they really think there is a long line of potential adopters for an elderly, medically fragile furbaby???

    It is heartbreaking to think of seniors being euthanized when they should be with their family…… to me, the worst fate is to be euthanized alone, afraid, in pain and unloved…….

    This shelter is a high kill shelter…… I hope local rescues can help out……. absolutely heartbreaking how an animal’s fate depends entirely on which shelter it ends up in…..
