Ben's Chihuahua Pup Return to Kill Shelter With His Favorite Bed, Left With No More Tears To Cry

For a 10-year-old dog named Ben, the days don’t seem like they will get any easier. Ben’s owner didn’t want him anymore, and so she gathered all of his toys, and his beloved dog bed, loaded him into a car, and mercilessly surrendered him to the Miami-Dade Animal Services, better known as the MDAS.

The MDAS 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.

Ben, who at his golden age seems to sense that the stakes are high, can often be found tucked away shaking in his favorite bed, cowering in fear from the noise and chaos that is the MDAS. When the lights go out, and everyone goes to sleep, soft and subtle weeping could be heard coming from his kennel space. Ben cries himself to sleep every night wondering what on earth he did to deserve his new fate. Sad indeed.
