So confused – senior dog returned to busy shelter by his adopter

An adorable, senior dog is justifiably confused after he was adopted and then returned to a busy California animal shelter. Imagine the joy of walking out of the shelter environment and into the fresh air – hopping into a car and arriving to a real home.

Imagine being loaded up in a car a short time later and driven back to the place which you thought you had left behind. This is eight-year-old Simon’s sad reality. There is no information provided about Simon’s return – all that is known is that a member of the public adopted him and now he is back at the Riverside County Animal Control agency.

Saving Simon

RESCUED 12/7/18🚨BACK AT SHELTER! Previously Adopted per thread/Shelter Located in adoptable building. SIMON #A1486052I am a male, white Poodle – Miniature and Maltese. Shelter staff have estimated my age to be about 8 years old. I have been at the shelter since Nov 09, 2018. I am available for adoption now. Riverside Shelter Dogs Facebook page is volunteer run. We do not work for or volunteer for the shelter. Please Read 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼▪️This page does not facilitate adoptions, rescues, transportation, pledge tallying or collecting under any circumstances, UNLESS it’s a reputable rescue we know and trust. ▪️This page does not always have current status of an animal after it is removed from Petharbor. Please do not post “Update??” on the threads. If you would like an immediate update, please call the shelter. If and when we receive an update, we will make sure to post it. ▪️If you pledge on a dog that is pulled by a reputable rescue, please intended on honoring it. Repeatedly pledging and not honoring will also get you banned. If you are pledging on a dog, and receive a pledge collection from a rescue you are unfamiliar with, or feel uneasy about, please research them before honoring. ▪️Bad mouthing the shelter will get you banned. We strive to work with the shelter, not against them. The animals need us more than we need drama. ▪️Our videos MAY NOT PORTRAY a dogs true behavior.

If you are interested in adopting an animal, you MUST physically visit the shelter and fill out proper paperwork. ▪️Dogs who are scheduled for euthanasia will USUALLY have a Petharbor link that states “I am no longer available” in red writing. Their photo will still be visible. These dogs are still alive and need IMMEDIATE rescue but may be euthanized at anytime. When a dog’s Petharbor link says “Sorry this dog is no longer in our online database. Please check with the shelter to find out it’s availability” and their photo is NO LONGER visible, it means the dog has been adopted, rescued or euthanized. ▪️For a break down of what the different color status’s (green, yellow and red) mean, please read our pinned post. Pinned post will also contain a link to view the current color coded dogs at the shelter.
