Somebody Loved Her Once, Now She’s A Terrified, Unwanted Shelter Dog

Gardena, CA – A young dog at the Carson Animal Services facility is doing poorly after winding up homeless and stuck behind the bars of her kennel run. Hibiscus, a two-year-old Havanese mix, was taken in at the shelter facility on October 4 and it is clear that she is terrified and distressed.

At some point in her life, Hibiscus was loved. But today, she is just another terrified, unwanted shelter dog who is struggling at the animal care facility.

You can see the fear and trepidation in Hibiscus’ eyes. And because of her extreme fear, she will likely only be saved if a rescue group can step up to take her in.

On Tuesday, the Saving Carson Shelter Dogs Facebook page wrote:

  1. Could someone Please reach out to a Havanese Rescue in the California.

    Here is the Website : https://www.havaneserescue.com/

    and here is another one Havanese Rescue Inc. on Facebook to let them know there is a Havanese Mix at this Animal Care Centre.

    These are both in California

    I don’t live in the US, nor do i have Facebook. Hope someone can take a minute to helpthis Pup.
    I really hope they can take her in and get a Foster or Adopted out ASAP.

  2. I’m all the way across the country honey. If I could get somebody from your place to mine that would be a miracle God is blessing me and I am waiting on a good miracle from God to increase my finances. Because if I had it, I would take in adopt a baby because I want to adopt every kitty and every puppy if I ever had the capability then I need a whole little nation onto myself. Oh, I’m sending love and prayers honey. I will share this. Please keep us updated. Thank you. God bless.

  3. I do hope Hibiscus gets a new wonderful home. But, I’m also concerned about the kennel picture…I’d be scared too if I was put in a box like that. That looks terrible.

  4. I hope that poor Hibiscus finds a new owner soon. I have a black & white Shih Tzu cross here in the UK and feel very sad and helpless here.

  5. Poor baby!! Horrible POS monster “owners” dump their family members like this and I hope for karma someday for them! 👿😡 I wish I could help them all as it makes me so sad but even sharing in Canada here is unlikely to make a difference anyway. 💔😥

  6. Poor precious dog…I hope good people will give her a new loving home….But the shelter must be careful, there are MANY evil psychopaths in this country, they must NOT give her away without knowing for sure that she will be safe!!!
