Two dogs named AJ and Toby were abandoned at the Carson Animal Shelter in Gardena, California when their owners couldn’t afford to care for them.

While it was hard for both of them to change their loving home from a place surrounded by other strange dogs and people, it was harder for AJ to get used to it.

Soon after they were left in the shelter, one of the members of staff recorded a video of the poor dog crying.

AJ couldn’t stop shedding tears as he missed his family and brother because they were placed in different sections of the shelter.

It was difficult for him and his brother to find a new home because they were six years old. Read more on our Twitter account, @amomama_usa. 

Apart from that, they were an unusual mix of Pitbull and Labrador which made the adoption harder. Thankfully, everything changed when a video of AJ hit the Internet.

People couldn’t stand him crying and made the clip go viral so that someone would adopt him. The shelter admitted that AJ was sweet, gentle, and loving and that he needed a new home.

A rescue team saved both dogs a few days later, just in time to prevent the euthanasia. They recorded AJ leaving the shelter and embarking on his new life.

Another dog was also abandoned at the Lancaster Animal Care Center in Los Angeles by his owners because he was “too old.”

Choco was discarded in late August, and given the fact that he was 13 years old, the shelter staff chose to keep him in the medical ward to give him the care he needed.

However, people didn’t see him, so he had little-to-no chances to be adopted.

Thankfully for Choco, photographer Rita Earl Blackwell visited the Lancaster Animal Care Center and photographed the dog.

The posts went viral and, the founder of A Purposeful Rescue Hillary Rosen saw the posts days later and pulled him from the shelter.
