After 11 years with her owners, Mitsie the Beagle was surrendered to a shelter. Just when you think you’ve heard all of the excuses in the world, a new one pops up that leaves you shaking your head. I can’t imagine what this poor dog was feeling…
The original post on the Angels Among Us Pet Rescue Facebook page read:
“Hi, I’m Mitsie. I’m an 11 year old beagle whose wonderful owner dumped me here. She told the shelter staff to kill me. She said she was sick of me and that was her reason for surrendering me. I can’t believe I was her friend for all these years. What a fool I was to not sense the truth. I probably knew, but chose to accept my fate and now look at me.
“I’ve got my paws up here begging for someone out there to bring me home for Easter. I’m in a shelter and I don’t understand why my owner did this to me. I have this heavy feeling in my heart and stomach and can barely breathe thinking about what is going to happen. Or it could be that feeling you get when a relationship you valued is completely OVER! Out of no where!
“You are my chance. Please restore my faith in humankind. Beagles live long lives! Although I want to turn back the clock to be young again, I regret that I have not figured out how.
“I need a local foster home today and donations to save my life.”
And then the update everyone was waiting for:
“Mitsie, the senior beagle, has left the shelter thanks to all those who donated and shared. We can’t thank you enough!”
They went on to say, “We are happy to announce that she is heartworm negative! She is so grateful as are we for so many reasons this morning. She will never have an owner dump her again!”
We’re so happy that this terrible situation turned out to be a positive thing in the end for Mitsie! Thanks to everyone who helped make it happen. 🙂
