Oh come on! Owner surrenders 20-year-old spaniel to high kill shelter

On Monday, what has to have been a truly heartless owner, a 20-year-old spaniel was surrendered to the high kill Lancaster Animal Care Center in California. Oh come on! If only our own dogs could have been graced with such a long life, most of us would smile as we lovingly caressed them and fiercely protected them. A volunteer at the shelter told Arnold’s story:

“This poor 20 year old man was just surrendered by his family to LA county’s second highest kill shelter. 20 years old, and he’s now in an overcrowded animal shelter. Beyond heartbreaking. Please share him for rescue.

Hospice foster needed.”

“My name is ARNOLD and I’m an approximately 20 years old male cocker span. I am already neutered. I have been at the Lancaster Animal Care Center since July 16, 2018. I am available on July 16, 2018. You can visit me at my temporary home L722.”

According to Arnold’s description by the shelter, this sweet senior was turned in because he was “too old.” Please share this dog’s plight with approved rescue organizations, friends, family and social media contacts.

Opus tried desperately to get back to his owner when surrendered to shelter

For nine years, Opus lived with his family, but on Sunday every dog’s worst nightmare became reality. Opus was surrendered to the Carson Animal Shelter because his family is expecting a baby. He knew something was happening, but how to explain to a loyal friend he is no longer wanted? Despite what his eyes perceived when his owner patted him on the head, swapped out his leash and collar for a rope and was being led away, Opus refused give up those last shreds of hope.

“You can see his heart break with confusion as he tries desperately to get back to his dad and stop what’s happening,” a volunteer videoing the sad situation posted on Saving Carson Shelter Dogs Facebook.

Watch this senior’s video as he is led away by the officer. His owner pats Opus on the head, and then he is gone.

When seniors are abandoned: Can you help Abby?

Meet Abby; just one day after celebrating Independence Day, this sweet eight-year-old Labrador retriever hardly has any reason to celebrate. More than likely Abbey was picked up as a stray and is microchipped. Where is her family and why aren’t they looking for her? Abby quietly waits for them to return at the Inland Valley Humane Society in Pomona, California.

Her sadness shows in her demeanor; almost as if she has no hope.

Bailey was left in the lobby of a kill shelter to die

Bailey was left in the lobby of Brooklyn’s New York City Animal Care Center. His owner couldn’t be bothered to leave any information about him – how old, what he ate, did he have a favorite toy? When the staff veterinarians examined him, they found he had a heart murmur and a bleeding mass on his scrotum which was cauterized to stop the bleeding.

Someone in the shelter noticed Bailey’s calm energy and high tolerance; they made this sweet senior a “Counter Conditioning Helper Dog” for manageable reactivity. Sadly, however even that job for Bailey has come to an end – he is on the list to be humanely euthanized Tuesday afternoon.

A volunteer writes:

“I’ve walked Bailey a bunch now and it’s just heartbreaking that someone could leave this sweet older gentleman in the lobby. He was quite nervous when he first came, but he’s opened up and seems to like his volunteers. He is always easy to handle, always keeps his cage clean, loves to get snacks and go for his walks and is so cute!! He’s a bit chunky, low to the ground and has an infectious smile. Bailey does need some follow up medical care for a heart murmur and a lump on his scrotum that is bleeding.”

12-year-old Oreo dumped at shelter when he didn’t get along with new husky

Meet Oreo – this 12-year-old senior is doing her best to remain positive, but how can we judge how she feels after the only home she has known for nearly her entire life has been exchanged for a wire cage at the Carson Animal Shelter? In an overcrowded shelter, a volunteer tells Oreo’s heartbreaking story:

“She’s beautiful and after 12 years living outside their home she was left at the shelter because she didn’t get along with the new husky they brought home.”

Check out Oreo’s video:

And for the last two weeks, Oreo has been making the best of a bad situation. #A5188386

“My name is OREO and I’m an approximately 12 year old female Pit Bull. I am already spayed. I have been at the Carson Animal Care Center since 6/11. I will be available on 6/11. You can visit me at my temporary home at C107. 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 time indoors and outdoors. I seem to be good with small children. I have begun housetraining, but I still need some work. I have not learned how to walk on a leash. I’m not sure how I feel about other pets. “

Help needed for gentle-spirited German shepherd beaten up on the streets

An eight-year-old German shepherd, referred to by volunteers at the North Central Shelter in California as a gentle-spirited dog, needs urgent help. Virgil was found wandering the streets badly wounded after what appears to have been the result of a dog attack. Animal control officers think the dog may have been abandoned and wandering around looking for his home when attacked by the other dogs. Despite his deep wounds and the pain Virgil must have endured, not once did he complain, whimper or snarl as the emergency veterinarian staff cleaned and sutured his many wounds.

Sadly there is no room at the shelter for a dog in Virgil’s condition.

INFORMATION AS FOLLOWS:

“VIRGIL-ID #A1778320 MALE-8-YEARS-GERMAN SHEPHERD DOG
 Virgil Is 8 Years Old, & Weighs 70 Pounds. He Is Blue Alerted For His Injuries & At Serious Risk Of Being Humanely Euthanized.”

Pet Harbor listing:

“My name is Virgil and I am an unaltered male, black and brown German Shepherd Dog. The shelter thinks I am about 8 years old. I weigh approximately 70 pounds. I have been at the shelter since May 15, 2018. For more information about this animal, call Los Angeles Animal Services – North Central Shelter at (888) 452-7381. Ask for information about animal ID number A1778320. NORTH CENTRAL LA CITY SHELTER, 3201 LACY STREET
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA PHONE: 1-(213)-485-5767″

Check out his video. Please share this boy’s plight. He surely deserves better:

“Poor Virgil’s life is in serious danger, as the city shelter is no place at all for a dog in his condition to be recovering. We very much need to find a safe home for Virgil to rest and recover in. Please consider opening your heart and your home to him. Virgil deserves a happy ending after all that he’s been through.” Follow Virgil on Facebook here. Sharing saves lives.

Heartbreak for Lucy as she is led back to shelter kennel for second time

Poor Lucy – a friendly senior German shepherd has been surrendered by her different owners twice. Over a month ago, she was brought to the Miami Dade Animal Services in terrible condition, yet she waited for patiently for her family to return. And then in the middle of May, Lucy’s luck changed for the better. She was adopted and thought for sure she had found the perfect family who would love her forever.  Tragically, two weeks later, again through no fault of her own, Lucy was returned to the shelter; a member of her new family reportedly suffers from severe allergies.

Video#1

 

A volunteer who happened to be there took the above video of Lucy as she was being led to her kennel. (Please note the people present in the video were not the people who dumped her.) She is just a friendly girl and wanted to say goodbye ( or rather hello) to everyone she met on the way. This poor girl deserves so much better than what life has dealt her. Please share her far and wide. The only hope she has is us.
