The Carson Animal Shelter in Gardena, California is not the place you want to pin your hopes and dreams to say and write the least. Dogs and cats living in the high-kill facility quite literally have a few weeks, and sometimes even just days to find forever families before the unthinkable happens: euthanasia.
For one unnamed shepherd recently surrendered to Carson, he is facing a challenge, a test, that is drawing on all the emotional resilience he has. At only 7 months old, the young pup faced a rejection, one would never want to wish on his own enemy. His owner didn’t want to care for him anymore, and so in a cruel twist of fate, he rounded up the pups leash, collar, and the few toys he collected, before surrendering him to Carson, knowing full well the ramifications such a decision might carry.
The young pup, like all shepherds his age, is intelligent and wise enough to know what is going on. According to my source at the shelter, he can often be found nervously pacing his kennel space, quick to jump up anytime someone visits him. However, there have been no takers and each time this happens, he retreats to a corner, where he could be heard gently sobbing. Sad indeed.
Fidonation, if you or someone you know is interested in giving this precious pup the forever family he rightfully deserves, please contact the Los Angeles County Animal Control – Carson at (310) 523-9566 and reference the shelter ID #A5049752.
Additionally, please share this story on Facebook or Twitter, so we are closer to finding the pup without a name a family that will love him.
