Nothing quite stings harder than the feeling of betrayal. Emotionally, it is one of the hardest things to overcome, for the sheer reason that love you once gave, was not reciprocated. For one senior German Shepherd pup named Luna, 8 years of love, loyalty and devotion were not enough to spare her a trip to the Carson Animal Shelter.
Carson, a facility known for its high kill rate, is not a place where one should pin their hopes and dreams to say and write the least. The dogs and cats trapped inside the facility are given weeks, and sometimes even just days to find forever families before the unthinkable is scheduled to happen: euthanasia.
Luna’s owner didn’t want her anymore after her vet diagnosed her with a cancerous tumor. This led her owner to round up all her things, and unceremoniously dump Luna at the Carson Animal Shelter, pleading with staff to euthanize her “humanely,” so they could be “free” of her, according to my source at the shelter who wishes to remain anonymous.
Thankfully, shelter staff did not go through with his recommendation, waiting instead for the attending veterinarian for Carson to give her opinion, when she is scheduled to return to work on Monday.
A Pet Harbor listing for Luna reads,
“My name is LUNA and I’m an approximately 8-year-old female German Shepherd. Please do your best to help me. My life is on the line. “
Fidonation, if you or someone you know is interested in giving Luna the forever family she rightfully deserves, please contact the Carson Animal Shelter at 310-523-9566 and reference the shelter ID #A5094600.
Additionally, please share this story on Facebook or Twitter so we are closer to finding Luna a home. We have done it before, and can certainly do it again.
