An animal shelter in Pennellville, New York, is devastated after a heartless act by a dog owner.

The owner callously dropped off their 14-year-old dog, Sophia, at the Friends Forever Animal Rescue without displaying any emotion.

The reason given was that the family was moving away.

Casey Newton, the founder of the shelter, was deeply moved by the situation.

The owner revealed that they had gone to several other shelters in search of someone to take in Sophia before coming to Friends Forever as a last resort.

The most heart-wrenching moment for Casey and the shelter staff was witnessing Sophia’s reaction as her former owner drove away.

The poor dog seemed to be asking, “Where are you going? What did I do wrong?”

This abandonment left her feeling like she deserved to be deserted, which was heartbreaking to witness.
