Brokenhearted dachshund surrendered to high kill shelter when family moved

When sweet Cali’s family moved to a home where pets are not allowed, the brokenhearted eight-year-old dachshund couldn’t stop hoping the Carson Animal Care Center was nothing more than a bad dream.

Cali had been at home with her former family for a year, and although she spent most of the time outdoors, it was still home and familiar.

PetHarbor adoption information:


#A4477692 My name is CALI and I’m an approximately 8 year old female Dachshund. I am already spayed. I have been at the Carson Animal Care Center since 3/14. I will be available on 3/14. You can visit me at my temporary home at C240. My former family who owned me for about a year had to give me up because they were moving. But they said that I spend most of my time outdoors, but it’s not ideal. I do not show interest in small children (Lived with 2 of them). I have not been housetrained. I have not learned how to walk on a leash. I may need obedience class.

Tragically dogs that are surrendered are often the first to be humanely euthanized because of overcrowding.
