Shame on Roxie’s owner: Neglected pup covered in fleas at crowded shelter

Shame on Roxie’s owner. This poor gal showed up as a stray at Carson Animal Care Center on Friday. Full of fleas, practically hairless from scratching and so scared, she cowers, but shows no aggression. Roxie has been placed in the medical section so she can be cared for and rest more comfortably.

#A5197383 My name is ROXIE and I’m an approximately 8 year old female Terrier. I am not yet spayed. I have been at the Carson Animal Care Center since 7/6. I will be available on 7/10. You can visit me at my temporary home at C404.

Super skinny 11-year-old ‘Pork Chop’ surrendered to shelter shivers in fear

Pork Chop is a super skinny 11-year-old Chihuahua surrendered to a city shelter in Carson, California on Monday. The tiny little guy, curled up in his bed, is being kept in the medical section of  the Carson Shelter, and although he is getting care, how does one explain to this little guy his family will never be back to scoop him up in their arms.

Check out his video. He appears to be so heartbroken and frightened. He barely wanted to make eye contact with the volunteer offering him a treat. Pork Chop deserves better:

Bonded seniors sat quietly in shelter lobby as their owner walked away

Bonded seniors Jacob and Isaac sat quietly in the shelter lobby as their owner walked away two days after Christmas. They had no idea what was happening when they unknowingly looked up at their family for the last time. It had been a quick goodbye, and suddenly a lifetime of good memories were gone.  Now the duo sits together in a metal kennel as Carson Animal Care Center in Carson, California. Their family no longer had time for them. What did they do wrong?

2-year-old pup lucky to be alive after witnesses saw her thrown onto street

Goldie is a two-year-old pup lucky to be alive. On Saturday, the tiny Chihuahua, with the radar-sized ears, had been thrown out into the middle of the street. No one saw who did it?

What happened to Piper? How did a puppy barely 5-months-old wind up at the Carson Animal Care Center in this condition? Most of her short life has been one of painful itching and burning; no one has taken care of her.

Bonded siblings 14-years-old dumped at shelter brings tears to volunteers’ eyes

Shiba and Jesse have spent a lifetime together.  The bonded siblings have been raised together since they were just puppies, what could have happened 14 years later when their owner told them to jump into the car and arrived at the Carson Animal Care Center in California on Sunday? According to volunteers, Shiba and Jesse’s owners could no longer handle the responsibility of their two dogs. Tragically, just like an old couch, one short ride and a bit of paperwork, the lives of devoted companions no longer mattered.

Look into their eyes. The confusion and heartbreak are all that can be seen. Although they are in the same kennel today, that will likely change in a day or two. Carson Animal Care Center does not support keeping bonded pairs together with the thought that the dogs will have an easier time finding a home if they do not have to be kept together. And so, after having lost the only home they have ever had, on top of everything else, they will be separated and their spirits further broken apart.

Just one-month-old and found as a stray – what could have happened? Did this little dachshund puppy lose his way one day when he was outdoors with the rest of his litter mates?

Too old: Lucky’s heart was broken when his family dumped him at shelter

“Too old” is what Lucky’s family told the staff at the Carson Animal Care Center when they surrendered him on Wednesday. The 12-year-old Border collie’s eyes followed his family’s departure as they walked out. The dog hasn’t given up though; he continues to watch and wait. Lucky wasn’t very lucky! Volunteers shook their heads in sad disbelief:

“LUCKY is 12 and he needs your help now; his heart was broken today when his family left him. Please SHARE for his life; he’s SO special and a FOSTER or ADOPTER would save him. He has not been neutered.  (I will be available on 6/4 may be an error) His former family gave him up because they thought he had gotten too old.”

Click here for Lucky’s Pet Harbor listing. “My name is Lucky and I am described as a male, black and white Border Collie. The shelter thinks I am about 12 years old. I have been at the shelter since May 31, 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 A1652599. A Facebook page for this dog can be followed here.

View Lucky’s video here. Have you ever seen such a sad dog? At the end of the video, the loyal dog returns to the rear of his shelter cage, lies down and watches and waits – hoping his family will show up at anytime and take him home. Share this senior’s plight with approved rescue organizations, friends, family and social media contacts. Sharing saves lives, and we are all that Lucky has now.

Saddest bonded German shepherd watches over her nearly blind pal at crowded shelter

If there ever was a sad story of two bonded siblings surrendered to the Carson Animal Shelter, then it has to be about Bella and Snowball. On Saturday, their family removed their collars and leashes and told the shelter staff, they just didn’t have time to care for the dogs. A volunteer standing by watched the heartbreaking moment:

“This will be the saddest thing you see today or maybe all week, and it will be hard to get out of your mind…. SNOWBALL is missing an eye and the one he has doesn’t look great. His big sister BELLA takes care of him.”

Bella is an  eight-year-old female German Shepherd. She is not spayed. She has  been at the Carson Animal Care Center since April 29 and is available for adoption today. You can visit her at her temporary home at C217. Reference #A3983340.  Click here for Bella’s Pet Harbor adoption listing. Her Facebook page can be followed here.

Snowball is a 13-year-old male Chihuahua who is neutered. He has been at the Carson Animal Care Center since April 29 and is available for adoption today. You can visit him at his temporary home at C217. Reference #A5055415. Click here for Snowball’s Pet Harbor adoption listing. His Facebook page can be followed here.

Owner in tears as he surrenders 15-year-old cocker spaniel

A 15-year-old cocker spaniel, named Charlie, lies in his shelter cage wondering why he isn’t home with his family. On April 22, Charlie’s owner surrendered him to the Carson Animal Care Center because he was no longer able to handle the responsibility of caring for his dog. Volunteers at the shelter saw the owner in tears as he bid goodbye to the dog he spent his life with for the past five years.

Pet Harbor listing here:  “My name is CHARLIE and I’m an approximately 15 year old male Cocker Spaniel. I am already neutered. I have been at the Carson Animal Care Center since 4/22. I will be available on 4/22. You can visit me at my temporary home at C414. My former family who owned me for more than 5 years had to give me up because they just weren’t up for the responsibility of a pet. 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 am just learning obedience skills. I seem to get along well with dogs and cats.” A Facebook page for Charlies can be followed here. Additional information can be found here.
