Lucy ended up in kill shelter as an owner surrender, left with no more tears to cry

For a 1-year-old dog named Lucy, the days don’t seem like they will get any easier. Lucy’s owner didn’t want her anymore, and so she gathered all of her toys, and her beloved dog bed, loaded her into a car, and mercilessly surrendered her to the San Antonio Animal Care Services.

The San Antonio Animal Care Services is not your average shelter to say and write the least. The notoriously high kill facility is grappling with overcrowding, and so “hard decisions” have to be made, to maintain “population control” as one volunteer put it. That means that the dogs and cats trapped inside the facility have just a few weeks and sometimes even just days to find forever families, before they are brought the back, and prepped for euthanasia.

Lucy, who at her young age seems to sense that the stakes are high, can often be found tucked away shaking in her favorite bed, cowering in fear from the noise and chaos that is the San Antonio Animal Care Services. When the lights go out, and everyone goes to sleep, soft and subtle weeping could be heard coming from her kennel space. Lucy cries herself to sleep every night wondering what on earth she did to deserve her new fate. Sad indeed.

If you or someone you know is interested in giving this precious pup the forever family she rightfully deserves, please contact the San Antonio Animal Care Services at 210-370-7612 and reference the shelter ID #A465051.
