17-Year-Old Senior Stripped of Collar and Toys Before Being Dumped at Kill Shelter


For BUGGY, words can not express how he must feel after his family wanted to do away with him for good. After 17 long years of companionship, and undying loyalty, the senior pup was dumped at the high kill, Lancaster Animal Care Center. After his heartless owner went through the typical intake protocol, in which he was asked questions like why he was surrendering BUGGY, he simply responded: “he was getting up there in age.”

Furthermore, in a tasteless display of inhumanity, BUGGY, who by this time was cowering in fear from all the noise and chaos around him, was mercilessly stripped of his collar and his toy, right before his owner briskly walked away accompanied by other family members. Sad indeed.

A Petharbor listing for BUGGY reads,

“My name is BUGGY and I'm an approximately 16 years 1 month old male terrier. I am already neutered. I have been at the Lancaster Animal Care Center since May 7, 2018. I am available on May 7, 2018. You can visit me at my temporary home L713..”

SpeakUp, a shelter is no place for a senior dog like BUGGY to spend the rest of his golden years. At his age, he should be playing with toys and treats, instead of crying into a cold concrete slab, that now doubles as his pillow.

If you or someone you know is interested in giving this precious pup the forever home he rightfully deserves, please contact the Lancaster Animal Care Center at (661) 940-4191 and reference the shelter ID ##A3164717.

Speak Up! please share this story on Facebook or Twitter so we are closer to finding this terrified soul a home. We have done it so many times together, and can certainly do it again. Thank you!

  1. how about posting in the paper where Clyde lived with pictures of him and what the "owners" did to him -I hope the "owners" have children so when they get old they can throw them away in a nursing home and forget about them

    1. How about they post a link to the shelter or this so-called "crossposter" they refer to every time. This is nothing but sad stories including click bait. By the time they publishe these tear- jerking, heart rending stories the animals are usually dead.

  3. I wish I could take him. I have a senior boxer that was a rescue. She’s been through hip issues, a tumor (benign thank god) but this guy tugs at my heart.

  5. At 17 this old man was most likely taken in for EUTHANASIA -which means humane death. At 17 I'd be willing to bet he is having some major health issues.

    Sadly some people see this as a time for bashing... instead of honoring the owners request for an easier crossing. Or MAYBE he belonged to an elderly person that died. You see a title like this and just believe whatever gives you justification to be nasty & abusive. The humanoids seem to have taken over the earth for sure.

    1. Re-read that post -- his owners were heartless, brusque and didn't give a damn -- only cared that he was "Getting On In Age", which is NO excuse to dump a pet -- a pet IS for life.... "Getting on in Age" -- wow-- aren't we all???

    2. NO such thing as "HUMANE"!!!!!

    3. Hey Ruby! You don't take a pet to a high kill shelter to have them put down for health reasons, you take them to a vet! I have had many that I HAD to put down but I sure in hell didn't dump them at a shelter for them to do, I took the time and money and held them with kisses saying good bye to them..thats the proper way to do it!

    4. Dear Mandy, yes, there is such a thing as "humane". We had to have our beautiful boy put to sleep because he had had a stroke, had congestive heart failure and had cancer. It was peaceful, gentle and kind. He truly just went to sleep in my arms. We stayed with him, we held him, we cried over him and kissed him goodbye. We didn't just walk in and "dump" him to die alone. His death had dignity and compassion. So yes, there is such a thing as "humane".

    5. Ruby! Humane is staying with your dog.... holding him, caring for him and being with him if he needs to be put down because his health is bad. Some people are deluded! FCS! This family is cruel and heartless! Animals are family, and you don't dump at a high kill shelter... Poor boy...

    6. RUBY,
      If that family was bringing their pet for euthanasia, then why didn't they stay and hold that poor frightened pet in their arms to say goodbye, and tell him how much they loved him. I will tell you why! Because they are cold-hearted people who don't care about BUGGY'S feelings!

    7. There is NOTHING “humane” about killing someone who doesn’t want to die. Wake up! Animals that are killed in shelters know exactly what is happening and often fight to avoid the room where they’re murdered ... peeing and pooping themselves as they’re drug in by the leash and forced on the table.

      I challenge you to spend a day with those people who kill the animals ... IN THAT ROOM WITH THE ANIMALS ... and then come back here and tell us all how humane the experience was. >:(

    8. If you deem it acceptable to rid yourself of a loving pet because they are old, there is no valid excuse for doing so other than you are a worthless piece of shit and did not deserve the love that animal gave YOU for the duration of its life. If you wish to have it euthanised at least do the honourable thing, be with them, hold them, say your goodbyes and THANK YOU and let them drift off loved not abandoned. There is NO reason, only excuses for doing something as heartless, cruel and dispicable as this!

  6. You did not read the article which tells exactly about his family coming in and dumping him and taking his collar and toys

  7. Can we get more information about where he is located? IIRC Lancaster is in PA, but without the shelter information, I can't share him. I don't have contacts in PA yet (I'm in NE Ohio now), but I'm involved in Texas and can share him on my wall if I know where he is. Sadly, at 17 at this shelter, he's most likely already gone. :(
