On July 16, a handsome senior named “Jack,” lost his home and family after his owner surrendered him to the Los Angeles County Animal Care and Control facility in Lancaster, Calif. Please pass this story forward.

The nine-year-old German shepherd mix has endeared himself to the volunteers at the facility during the time that he has been in their care. The following information is written on Jack’s Shelter Me biography:

Sweet Mr. Jack is just as mellow as can be and he has already won over most of the staff and volunteers at the shelter. He has an incredible personality that you just have to love. He was hanging out with the shelter veterinarian sharing lunch with the doctor and just chilling out like the cool guy he is. Jack is a big giant sweetheart and would love a home to kick back and relax in his golden years.

The busy, high-intake animal control facility is not a safe place for Jack to be…at the time that this article was written, nearly 300 dogs were in the care of the Lancaster Animal Services facility. Unfortunately, dogs are put down when space constraints become an issue.

Please take a moment to network on the behalf of this wonderful senior…he did not ask to be put in the situation that he has been placed in.
