It is devastating for a dog to be ᴀ.ʙᴀɴ.ᴅᴏ.ɴᴇᴅ by his family. Families might refuse to take care of sick or elderly dogs, but they do not realize, how difficult it will be for dogs when they got abandoned by their own families.
Ray, an 8-year-old Labrador Retriever, was found wandering alone in the streets of Torrance, California, after being given up by his family. His body skeletons were seen thin. His eyes were sad and crusty. He was missing his home, but the owner didn’t care for him anymore and refuses him because of his elder age and sɪᴄᴋɴᴇss. The poor dog had to spend his go in the streets instead of getting care and love from the family.
Luckily, Ray was rescued by the workers at Carson Shelter in California. Volunteers met him wandering the streets. He’s hungry, thin and so sad. They fed him, bathed, and take care of him. The shelter volunteers helped Ray gain back a number of his better health.
After 4 months of treatment and care, he has recovered and is preparing to be adopted by an inviting family. This will be a home of love, sweetness, and care for him all the time.
Update: Ray has been adopted! Ray’s love of humans hasn’t changed one bit. He still responds to every human with love. Seeing him so sad and dejected in the video just broke our hearts. We hope Ray nurses back his spirits fast and continue to be showered with love and care.
