Senior Dog Left Tied To Tree With Tub Of Food And Note From Prior Owner

Ramona, CA – Late last week, a senior dog was left tied to a tree with a tub of food and a note from her former owner. According to the Frosted Faces Foundation, the 10-year-old dog’s name is Indy and her owner left her on their property because she was assaulted and hospitalized and there was no one to care for Indy.

The group shared the note left with Indy:

“Hello my name is Indy. I am 10 years old. My mom is so sorry to leave me here. She has been crying for days. She got assaulted and was in the hospital. She is out now without anyone to help her or take care of her. She lost her apartment and is homeless as she is disabled. Thank you for taking me. I am dog reactive but OK with cats. I just need a home. ❀️ Indy”

Though the rescue group is critical of a dog being abandoned rather than being properly surrendered, they are committed to ensure Indy is taken care of.

As for Indy, we have made space for her and are assuming responsibility for her care with which we have been charged. Over just a couple days Indy has softened her expression and has pep in her step. She knows how to play fetch and surprisingly prefers our male volunteers!

You can follow Indy’s journey at this link to the rescue agency’s Facebook page.

  1. Geez, πŸ’”she could have gone to a shelter. I’m sorry but this is unacceptable! You don’t tie dogs up to trees and leave them.And I don’t believe the story either. She probably got tired of having an old dog, has a puppy now.πŸ¦΄πŸ’”πŸ¦΄

  2. And the water etc, that’s to help remove her guilt didnt want to kill the dog, just make the dog more comfy in his new isolation. Being dumped is cruel, animals are not garbage! πŸ’”πŸ¦΄πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ¦΄πŸ’”πŸ’”

  3. I believe shelters charge a fee for surrendering a pet. The prior owner probably couldn’t afford the surrendering fee. Hoping some agencies are trying to locate and assist the prior owner
