Out of all the heartless individuals who mistreat animals, those who cruelly abandon their pets after years of unwavering loyalty to their human families are the most despicable.
Meet Jake, a charming Collie who is just 16 years old. Unfortunately, his previous owners left him at a shelter where he was a.b.a.n.d.o.n.e.d due to their busy schedule. It’s heartbreaking to think that after being with them for 16 long years, they threw him away like garbage. The Humane Society of Crawford County in Ohio became Jake’s temporary home, and when he arrived, he looked bewildered and frightened, searching for the people he thought were his family. Victoria Carmean, the director of HSCC, recounted Jake’s sad story.
Carmen recently shared about an elderly Collie who was brought to their care center. Sadly, his former owners surrendered him after 16 years of loyal companionship because they did not have time for him. Despite his fear and confusion, the Collie remained calm and followed Carmen with trust and dignity, displaying the wisdom that often comes with age.
Moved by his plight, Carmen reached out to find Jake a new home. After two hours of searching, they connected with Almost Home Dog Rescue of Ohio, which specializes in senior dogs. The rescue promised to provide Jake with a loving home among other elderly dogs in similar situations. They showered him with affection and reassured him that he would receive all the love he needs to heal from this heartbreaking experience.
In a Facebook post that went viral with over 21,000 shares, Carmean passionately explained why her job is so important to her. Her words were powerful as she expressed that despite the challenges and negativity that comes with working in animal care, it’s where they belong because they have a deep desire to help those who can’t speak for themselves. Every day, they make a difference in the lives of these adorable creatures, one at a time. And not to forget, the reward of puppy kisses, soft kitty pats, and the satisfaction of finding a loving home for pets that deserve only the best. Thank you, Carmean, for inspiring us with your dedication and love for animals.
