10 year old Chihuahua Surrendered at Kill Shelter, Struggling to Make Sense of New Life


Carson, a shelter notorious for its high kill rate, is not the place where hope abounds to say and write the least. Dogs at Carson are given just weeks, and sometimes even just days to find forever families before they are put down as a form of “population control” according to Carson.

10 year old male Chihuahua dumped at a shelter is struggling to come to grips with a new life, that is as confusing, as it is sad. TOMMY is trying his hardest to have faith in a system, that has seen so many like him executed, through no fault of their own.

TOMMY is a gentle, sweet soul and this senior is starting to seem more and more shut down. He is super cute and in the shelter almost a month! Please SHARE, he's SO special he needs a FOSTER or ADOPTER NOW. Thanks!
