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.”

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.

Please share Charlie’s plight with approved rescue organizations, friends, family and social media contacts. Sharing saves lives.

Heartless family surrenders senior dog half-wrapped in a garbage bag

Whenever one thinks they may have seen the most heartless situation at an open admission animal shelter, another soulless act occurs; this time tears flowed freely down the cheeks of volunteers and shelter staff at Carson Animal Care. Blackie’s family surrendered their ten-year-old Welsh Corgi wrapped in a plastic garbage bag – carrying her in a cardboard box. They claimed she had a tumor that had been bleeding, yet they refused medical help. Instead they decided to just dump her.  And despite her family turning their backs on her when she needed them the most, Blackie remained happy.

The Carson staff unwrapped Blackie and cleaned her up.  She is in need of immediate help. Click here for Blackie’s Pet Harbor listing. “My name is Blackie and I am described as a spayed female, black Welsh Corgi – Cardigan mix. The shelter thinks I am about 10 years old. I have been at the shelter since Apr 15, 2017. For more information about this dog, call Los Angeles County Animal Control – Carson at (310) 523-9566. Ask for information about animal ID number A4446812. A Facebook page for Blackie can be followed here. Volunteers who have met this dog state she is very friendly. Other inquiries should be addressed to shelter personnel.

Share Blackie’s plight with approved rescue organizations, friends, family and social media contacts. Funds are being pledged for an approved rescue organization. A staff veterinarian will be required to clear Blackie to be released to a potential adopter. Sharing saves lives.

Senior Gibson looked awful at the shelter when he showed up as a stray

Gibson looked terrible when he showed up as a stray, and what a neglected life the nine-year-old Shih Tzu must have had in his past. Now he has a chance at a new life – while he may be a senior, it certainly doesn’t mean he can’t enjoy his golden years. Staff members at the Carson Animal Shelter shaved this precious little guy to make him more comfortable; the matting and the knots pulled against his tender skin. Oh, how that must have hurt.

Click here for Gibson’s Pet Harbor listing. “I am described as a neutered male, white Shih Tzu. The shelter thinks I am about 9 years old. I have been at the shelter since Mar 23, 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 A5043654. A Facebook page for this dog can be followed here and here.

Check out Gibson’s brief video. Who can resist this little one who is depending on all of us to help him? His photo has been shared more than 2,500 times, yet no one has yet to come to his rescue. Please notify approved rescue organizations, friends, family and social media. Sharing saves lives.

Heartbreaking little terrier at shelter ‘not feeling great’ needs help

Heartbreaking video of senior Mastiff as owner surrendered her to shelter

The heartbreaking video of Hailie, the senior Mastiff surrendered on March 1 at the Carson Animal Care Center, brought tears to both shelter staff and volunteers. The eight-year-old dog’s owners told the shelter personnel she could no longer care for their dog who had been with her since she was a puppy- but who could explain the tragic situation to Hailie?

Click here for Hailie’s PetHarbor listing. “My name is Hailie and I am described as a female, black brindle and black Mastiff mix. The shelter thinks I am about 8 years old. I have been at the shelter since Mar 01, 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 A4009432. A Facebook page for Hailie can be followed here.

On the Facebook page of Saving Carson Shelter Dogs, the following comments were posted – softly reminding advocates to concentrate on helping Hailie. It is indeed tragic that this dog knew something very frightening was happening, and she tried with all the courage she could muster on perhaps the worst day of her life to be brave, as she was finally but reluctantly pushed into the cart on her way to the shelter’s intake area:

“This is a REALLY UPSETTING VIDEO of a sweet senior named HAILEY getting surrendered. The staff were visibly upset during the intake process as well. She is getting placed in the roller cart that the staff use to transport the dogs through the kennels to the medical intake.

The owners didn’t say why except they could not take care of her anymore. This will make you so angry at the owner but what HAILEY needs now is support, a FOSTER and RESCUE and Pledges for her MEDICAL CARE and she needs out FAST; this has to be the worst and most confusing night of her life! Please SHARE or consider FOSTERING…”

Saddest dog: ‘Angel’ neglected and dumped after 10 years

Volunteers at the Carson Animal Care Center in California tell the heartbreaking story of ten-year-old Angel who was surrendered to the shelter on February 24. Her family told the staff they were moving, and Angel was just yesterday’s trash. For nearly a decade, she has been neglected; her skin is raw and her eyes are infected. And just as tragic, this senior feels betrayed; she has been called the “saddest thing you will see all day.”sad Sunday dog 2

“It’s sad that after 10 years of what looks like complete neglect of a treatable and irritating skin condition, they not only gave her the name angel but they left her at the Shelter when they moved.
