Update 8/3/14: Spike was adopted on Sunday afternoon!

At 13 years of age, a senior beagle named "Spike," should be enjoying leisurely strolls with his beloved guardian, followed by rest on a soft bed. Instead, the elderly beagle is locked in an animal control kennel run alongside dozens of other stressed and frightened homeless dogs.

Spike was surrendered to the Los Angeles County Animal Care and Control facility in Lancaster, Calif., on July 23. Since that time, he has waited for someone to take notice in him...more importantly, he has waited for someone to take a chance on him.

It is unknown why Spike lost his home and arrived to the animal control agency - what is clear is that he needs assistance to leave the facility. Networking Spike's information increases his visibility along with his chances for finding a rescue agency which may have the ability to take him in, or a loving person who might have the desire to add a senior to their life.
