This friendly, elderly Golden Retriever was dumped outside our shelter, coughing because the collar was too tight and with a would on the back. The Goldie had gone in to the kennel (that we have outside our shelter) to keep warm and rest his tired old legs. When our founder Du Yufeng pulled up, the Goldie came expectedly to meet the car, probably hoping for his owner to come back for him!
We placed the kennel outside the shelter, with water nearby, for those dogs who are abandoned by their owners like this one because at least they will be cared for and it stops some owners from taking the 'easy' way out by killing their pets. However, we are finding that more owners are dumping their pets or litters of puppies and it is meaning a huge extra cost for veterinary trips and procedures.
If you can find it in your heart to set up a monthly donation to care for emergencies like this old man, we would be very grateful. Thank you.
