The poor dog got left at an infamous high-kill shelter by her owners.
Animals need love, food and shelter, just like humans. One dog thought she would find all this and more when she returned to her family. But she didn’t.
This family abandoned their dog Syndey when she was three months old.
Sydney went from a loving home to a cold kennel at a shelter in Carson, California. She didn’t know what she had done wrong, and when she realized she had lost her home, she began to cry.
The worst part of this heartbreaking story is that the family had no particular reason to part with the dog. They just didn’t want to take care of her anymore.
Some people have no sense of obligation to others.
Because the family didn’t try to find Sydney an adoptive home, she is now in a euthanasia center. A bad fate awaits her if she cannot find a caring family to take her in.
Sydney can be a sweet dog, she is gentle and has a good personality. How these people were able to kidnap her is beyond comprehension.
Unfortunately, these situations are common. According to the American Society for Animal Welfare (ASPCA), approximately 6.5 million pets are abandoned to shelters in the United States each year. This is a staggering figure.
But there is hope. The ASPCA reports that about 3.2 million of these animals are adopted each year. The good and kind hearts of caring owners protect almost half of the animals placed in these shelters.
These numbers prove it. When it comes to helping homeless pets, every act of kindness counts.
The good news is that Sydney’s story has a happy ending.
About a week after arriving at the shelter, Syndey was placed. A rescue group called Saving Carson Sanctuary Dogs posted a video of Sydney, helping to raise awareness about her situation.
This rescue group does an incredible job of finding homes for some of the vulnerable dogs in this shelter. Fortunately, they were ready to find the best place for Syndey.

While it breaks our hearts that Sydney lost her original home, we are so thankful that she found a permanent home. To learn more about Conserving Carson Sanctuary Dogs, visit the organization’s Facebook page.
