A bedraggled senior dog, blind and apparently neglected, is confused at the busy California animal care facility where she was taken in on August 1. The 12-year-old dog, dubbed Melody, is in need of rescue from the Los Angeles County Animal Care Services (Carson) facility in Gardena.

The Saving Carson Shelter Dogs Facebook page writes (note – they list Melody as 10 years of age, but Petharbor lists her as a 12-year-old dog):

At 10 years old she came in as a stray and she’s BLIND and feeling a bit lost and confused. They were about to groom her so she will feel better..Please SHARE for her life, she’s SO precious and a FOSTER or ADOPTER would save her. Thanks!

Saving Melody

Much of Melody’s fur is missing, she is blind, and likely suffering from other age-related maladies. Please help her find a safe place to spend the remainder of her life!

    I am hoping someone local will open their heart and home for this precious treasure. She deserves a loving furever family……. it’s absolutely heartbreaking to think of her dying alone, afraid and unloved in the shelter…… I am in WA, so I can’t visit her and reassure her that she will be ok (even if it wasn’t Covid time)…….

    We currently have a blind dog. They are the same as any other dog: beg for treats, love Grammy & Grampy, love car rides in the country, HATE bath time & the veterinary clinic with a passion!!!
