Velveteen lies in a shelter cage after she was surrendered on Friday to the Moreno Valley Animal Shelter in California. Her story is not original, but nonetheless tragic for a 12-year-old dog who spent most of her life with a human who decided to move out of state and left her with an elderly relative who cannot care for her.
“To see her lying in a shelter all alone when she likely spent her whole life with someone who moved away, hurts one’s heart,” a volunteer wrote on the Friends of Moreno Valley Shelter Animals’ Facebook page.
Velveteen needs us. Let’s all please work this weekend to raise funds for surgery for her so that a rescue will have the means to help her and get her out on Tuesday.”
Although Velveteen’s condition has not been diagnosed by a veterinarian, it is feared she suffers from a painful eye condition in her bulging eye. She also will need the growth on her lid removed on her other eye. Share her plight with approved rescue organizations, friends, family and social media contacts. Sharing saves lives.
