A senior dog has been left with a broken heart after her owner surrendered her to a busy California animal shelter. The eight-year-old dog, named Tessa, arrived at the Carson Animal Services facility in Gardena on April 19. The volunteer-run Facebook page, Saving Carson Shelter dogs, wrote:
Sweet TESSA is really struggling in the Shelter and she needs some help now. Please SHARE for her life, she’s SO heartbroken and a FOSTER or ADOPTER would save her. Thanks!
One look at Tessa’s photo reveals the depth of her fear and sadness – her eyes show her uncertainty. Tessa’s former family said that they no longer had time for her – now, Tessa is not guaranteed time and she is relying on the kindness of strangers to save her life.
