Starlight: Scared senior dog that should not be in a high kill shelter

Imagine the smile on her family’s faces when they named their sweet Golden Retriever puppy Starlight? Just the name reminds us of watching the clear night skies and making wishes as distant shooting stars traversed  the unexplored universe. And for a decade, loyal canine pal, Starlight stretched out contented next to her family; happily dreaming all those things dogs get to dream. Sadly, reality bites and one day the scared senior – now ten-years-old is no longer wanted and winds up at a high kill animal shelter in California.

And on April 29, with the Carson Animal Care shelter completely full, Starlight’s life suddenly fell apart:

“Sweet little STARLIGHT is 10 and her family brought her to the shelter because they said she is Ill and they couldn’t afford her care. She needs help NOW, she is very confused.”

Click here for Starlight’s Pet Harbor listing. “My name is Starlight and I am described as a spayed female, gold Golden Retriever mix. The shelter thinks I am about 10 years old. I have been at the shelter since Apr 29, 2017.” For more information about this animal, call Los Angeles County Animal Control – Carson at (310) 523-9566. Ask for information about animal ID number A4440312. A Facebook page for this dog can be followed here.

Medical records for Starlight indicate her teeth are worn down,  has ocular opacity, red tinged diarrhea, vomiting and presents with a mass on her lateral thorax. Her previous owners stated the dog has been losing weight over the last two months. A veterinarian examination would be needed to complete any diagnosis for this dog. Although scared, Starlight remains very friendly.

Share this dog’s plight with approved rescue organizations, friends, family and social media contacts. Whether this dog has one day, one week or one year left to live, doesn’t she deserve more than just being surrendered to a shelter? Perhaps her family couldn’t afford the expense if her health needs are complicated and expensive, but isn’t there always just a little extra money to make sure the dog who has been a loyal and loving part of someone’s family isn’t alone on her final journey? Advocates have been pledging funds to help this sweet dog. Who will step up and be Starlight’s hero?

Ironic twist: Owner arrested and puppy knows his own crate as ‘jail’

An adorable and extremely clever German shepherd puppy knows his own crate as jail. “Go to jail” the puppy’s owner would yell, and the seven-month-old  would run into his crate and sit. Ironically, Sonny’s owner was subsequently arrested and landed in jail. A volunteer from the Carson Animal Care Center in California tells the dog’s sad story:

“His owner is in jail, and he abandoned this puppy he called Baby Boy. His neighbors brought him into the shelter, and they say he is a smart, sweet, amazing puppy great with everyone. He is also crate trained, and when his owner wants him to go into his crate he would say ironically “GO TO JAIL” and Baby Boy would do it.. He needs help fast.”

Click here for this puppy’s PetHarbor link. “I am described as a male, brown and white German Shepherd Dog. The shelter thinks I am about 7 months old.
I have been at the shelter since Apr 12, 2017. I am not yet neutered. I will be available on 4/16. You can visit me at my temporary home at C348.  For more information about this animal, call Los Angeles County Animal Control – Carson at (310) 523-9566. Ask for information about animal ID number A5049752.

Brokenhearted 16-year-old Parson Rat terrier surrendered to shelter

Mandy is 16-years-old and is truly brokenhearted. The adorable Parson Rat terrier lies in her little bed at the Carson Animal Care Center staring at the wall; the senior seems to know she has been abandoned, and as she quietly shivers in fear, perhaps she wonders what she did wrong. Just watching Mandy’s short video, one can sense her confusion and the unmistakable depression already setting in.

Mandy was surrendered to the shelter on March 21. Her intake notes reflect the following comments:

“My former family who owned me for more than 5 years had to give me up because But they said that I spend most of my time indoors. I seem to be good with small children. I am house trained. I am good on a leash. I may need obedience class. I seem to get along well with dogs.”

Check here for Mandy’s Pet Harbor listing. “My name is Mandy and I am described as a spayed female, white Parson (Jack) Russell Terrier mix. The shelter thinks I am about 16 years old. I have been at the shelter since Mar 21, 2017.” For more information about this animal, call Los Angeles County Animal Control – Carson at (310) 523-9566. Ask for information about animal ID number A3444795. A Facebook page to follow this senior’s plight can be found by clicking here.

Senior dogs have more difficulty finding homes, but age truly doesn’t matter in return for having a best friend who promises never to reveal one’s most hidden secrets. Instead – Mandy is ready to be loved once again and could be just waiting for you. Please help.
