Worried eyes: Owner turned in frightened ‘stray’ but the little pooch wasn’t a stray at all



At the Agoura Animal Care Center, a tiny Papillon shivered in fear after he was turned into the shelter as a “stray.” Unfortunately, too many dog owners want to avoid paying a surrender fee to the animal shelter – funds that are always needed to help support the many unwanted pets arriving at shelters through no fault of their own.

Through research, the eight-year old dog’s (Texas #A5422019)  microchip revealed, after speaking to his original owner, (who the microchip was still registered to) that it was actually his person who turned him in.

“A phone call prompted a relinquishment so Texas didn’t have to wait 10 days on a stray hold. This was fortunate so we could begin the work needed to help him to feel safe. Poor guy was very confused & scared initially but warmed up to our resident dog whisperer KA Craig pretty quickly. By the time volunteers on our special teams began working with him his little personality began to shine!,” shelter volunteers posted on social media.

Interested in adopting this adorable sweetheart? To consider Texas for adoption ( true forever home for the little guy) or foster care please email agoura@animalcare.lacounty.gov.
