On Friday, a blind senior was traumatized after his family left him at the Carson Animal Care Center in California. Indigo, the 10-year-old Pomeranian, was stripped of his collar and his harness. For a few moments he just stood there, but suddenly reality set in – he was staying while his family was leaving. Indigo shook like a leaf.
In the heartbreaking video, the owner who claimed Indigo was “fearful” watched as his dog stood still as an officer removed his collar and harness. When a rope was tied around Indigo’s tiny neck, Indigo watched as his owner turned around and left; he cried, he jumped, and then he fell over.
By Saturday morning, Indigo was rescued by Leave No Paws Behind.
“While I try not to judge, this was a tough one for me, this touched me so hard I actually had tears in my eyes I will not go down that road and hold on to my anger for Indigo’s sake. I am grateful he only had to spend 24 hours scared, confused and so uncertain of his fate I am grateful he is now safe from all harm, getting much needed medical treatment and that he will soon realize he will never again be tossed aside, abandoned and he will never see the inside of a shelter again,” the organization posted on their Facebook page.
