6/20/14 - UPDATE: THIS DARLING PAIR OF SENIORS WAS RESCUED! Thanks to Devore Chi Angels they are safe and TOGETHER!!

Networking efforts are currently underway via social networking for two senior dogs who were left without a home after their owner died. For reasons unknown, surviving family of the deceased individual chose not to take the elderly dogs in, and now they are locked away in a kennel run at the San Bernardino City Animal Control in Calif.

The dogs, "Scooter," and "Dusty," were left at the facility earlier this week, and both will need the help of strangers if the are to walk out of this facility alive. Rarely do typical adopters enter an animal control facility searching for senior dogs.

The following information has been shared about the dogs on the Facebook page PetConnect.Us:

Andrea, who took this photo, says the dogs are VERY FRIENDLY! and are "so well behaved and not a peep, walk well on leash, very sweet to each other."

Dusty is listed as a 13-year-old female Labrador retriever mix, and her friend, "Scooter," is listed as an 18-year-old male Chihuahua.

Without a doubt, these elderly friends are confused about their current situation...they went from a home, and a guardian, to a lonely kennel run which is surrounded by unfamiliar smells and sounds. Please take a moment to network the information which may help spare these dogs from death.
