At the East Valley Shelter on Wednesday afternoon, a ten-year-old poodle was surrendered by his owners. Of course, Jack hasn’t been the first dog to be surrendered to a shelter, but the circumstances, as witnessed by a regular volunteer at the shelter, would make the most stoic heart break apart. “If only you could hear the cries of this 10-year-old Toy Poodle just dumped… because ‘they no longer want him’. They heard the cries, too, as did everyone in the lobby, and they were the only ones that showed no emotion.” And then Jack’s whole world walked away, and he was left to languish in the emotional pain of a loyal dog tossed away as if he was yesterday’s trash.
Jack’s kennel card identifies him as #A0903224. He is a male, neutered Toy poodle born on September 25, 2006 and was surrendered on December 9. Jack is available for adoption now. A Facebook page for Jack can be found by clicking here. Please note, there is no mandatory waiting period for surrendered pets, and they can be euthanized at any time depending on the crowded conditions of the shelter. Share Jack’s sad plight with approved rescue organizations, friends, family and social media contacts. Sharing saves lives and every life counts. “Please help mend this little guy’s broken heart and stop his cries,” tearfully begged the little dog’s advocate.
