Update: rescued – moved to safe album!
An elderly, 15-year-old dog has suffered the ultimate betrayal by his owner. Despite his advanced age, the senior dog was surrendered to a busy animal control agency in California and he is not doing well. In fact, the dog named Mickey will soon be euthanized if a rescue agency cannot be found.
On Saturday, the dire warning about Mickey’s fate was posted on Facebook:
Hello, please be advised we now have till 4:30 pm to have this dog rescued or he will be euthanized as his condition is worsening and not improving here.
If you are able to help please contact the Carson Care Center ASAP.
Mickey was surrendered by his owner who stated that he (or she) could no longer afford to care for him.
