At the high kill Carson Animal Shelter in Gardena, California, there is very little time to adjust the chaos, noise, and fast pace environment once you enter the facility. You are quite literally thrown into the fire, or rather a prison for dogs as I like to call it. All around you are the crushed hopes of dogs locked inside of their kennel staring back at you with the saddest eyes you will ever see.
Unfortunately, dogs are given just a few weeks, and sometimes even days to find forever families, before they are “put down humanely” by the Carson shelter in what they described as a “population control measurement” to free up “valuable” kennel space.
For one dog named Whisper, he is all too familiar with the politics of a place where statistically, most dogs who enter never get out. The 5-year-old chihuahua was surrendered to the high kill facility by a heartless owner who wanted nothing to do with her anymore, for some unconscionable reason. In fact, as Whispers owner walked away without even a goodbye, the saddened pup openly wept before she was gently led away to her kennel space. Sad indeed.
A Petharbor listing for Whisper reads,
“My name is Whisper and I am described as a spayed female, blonde Chihuahua – Smooth Coated. The shelter thinks I am about 5 years old. I have been at the shelter since Jan 30, 2017.”
Fidonation, if you or someone you know is interested in giving this precious pup the forever family she rightfully deserves, please contact the Los Angeles County Animal Control – Carson at (310) 523-9566 and reference the shelter ID #A5029317.
Additionally, please share this story on Facebook or Twitter, so we are closer to finding Whisper a forever home. We have done it before, and can certainly do it again.
