Days before Christmas, elderly, cancer-stricken dog left at busy shelter

Days before Christmas, an elderly dog finds herself alone at a busy California animal control agency. The 11-year-old dog, named Pebbles, was surrendered by her family, who told shelter staff that she was diagnosed with breast cancer two years ago.

On Wednesday, the Saving Carson Shelter Dogs Facebook page writes of Pebbles’ sadness and confusion:

PEBBLES was left 3 days before Christmas because they said she’s ill and you can see she is completely lost and confused right now. She doesn’t deserve this 💔 Please SHARE she needs an Adopter or Foster and Rescue to save her.
