It is devastating for a dog to be abandoned by his family. Families might refuse to take care of sick or elderly dogs, but they do not realize the amount of misery it brings to the dog when they abandon him.

 

 

Ray, an 8-year-old Labrador Retriever, was found wandering alone in the streets of Torrance, California, after being dumped by his family. His eyes were sad and crusty. Hunger had rendered his body skeletal-thin, and his coat-fur was missing in places.

Ray was rescued by the workers at Carson Shelter in California. The shelter volunteers helped Ray gain back some of his health, but he remained depressed. Soon, he was put up for adoption. It seemed that the preference for senior dogs was quite low.

 

 

Update: Ray has been adopted! Ray’s love for humans hasn’t changed one bit. He still responds to every human with love. Seeing him so sad and dejected in the video just broke our hearts.  We hope Ray nurses back his spirits fast and continues to be showered with love and care.
