Meet Toots – the heartbroken Beagle, who by far is having the worst day of her life.
Her family surrendered the friendly pup, they adopted in Hawaii six years ago, to go on vacation for several weeks.
On Saturday, Toots was led into the high kill San Bernardino City Animal Shelter. Her photo reveals the panic in her eyes.
Animal advocate and shelter volunteer Andrea Neyses tell the dog’s story: “Today I saw the most selfish of humans! Going on vacation in a week or so giving up their family member Toots who they adopted six years ago in Hawaii.
That’s not the worst of it; they got a new dog they are taking with them.
Who can look in her face and know you’re their whole world and still walk away?” questioned Andrea. “You have a really nice vacation. I bit my lip.”
A Facebook page for Toots can be followed here or here. TOOTS ID (#A504559) is described as a six-year-old female, spayed Beagle mix.
Share this dog’s plight with approved rescue organizations, friends, family and social media contacts. (Please note there has not been any information offered about the new dog – whether the family already owned the puppy or just adopted it.)
Advocates want to concentrate on finding a loving home or qualified rescue organization for Toot as quickly as possible.
Emotions are riding high – which is to be expected, however, the rescue world is coming together to help a dog in need. Funds are being pledged for an approved rescue organization.
