Her Mom Gave Her Dog Away to a Shelter Because She Couldn’t Care for It and Now Her Daughter Hates Her

A woman recently had enough of her daughter, who was unable to care for her dog. She had no choice but to give the dog to a shelter, but her daughter now hates her. Here’s what she had to say.

Her Daughter and the Dog Live In Her House

The 60-year-old woman had a 28-year-old daughter, May, who lived with her along with her large dog. “May is self-diagnosed. I can’t say, let alone won’t say, exactly what it is, but as far as I am concerned, all she has is a classic case of depression,” she explained.

The woman agreed to let May move in under the condition that she would maintain a job, save money, and seek therapy or find a way to manage her condition. However, over the past six months, May has repeatedly called off work, used up sick and vacation days, and seems to be on the verge of losing her job.

May Did See a Therapist

Although May briefly saw a therapist, she hasn’t gone recently, and since her insurance didn’t cover this particular therapist, the woman has been paying for her daughter’s sessions.

“Her bedroom is a mess. There is garbage everywhere—dirty dishes, stains, food scraps, and her laundry is just disgusting. I have tried to help when I can, like doing her laundry, but at almost 30, I would expect someone to be able to clean up after themselves,” she said.

May’s Dog Has Become a Problem

May’s four-year-old dog has recently become unruly as it hasn’t been getting enough exercise. “Whatever the breed is, it requires a lot of exercise, which May has been slacking on.” This is leading the dog to become VERY destructive,” she said.

The woman is at work all day, so she has no time to walk the dog. “I have told her time and time again that she needs to take care of the dog, she needs to walk the dog; she needs to exercise the dog because I can’t,” she said. May tends to respond by saying she has depression, so she can’t.

The situation escalated when the dog destroyed a brand new couch in the living room. The mother called the neighbor’s boys to help load the dog into the car and take it to the nearest shelter.

“May came home a few hours later and asked me where her dog was. I told her, and then we started yelling at each other. She accused me of not doing enough for the dog, saying that if I truly loved and understood her, I would have taken care of the dog while she took care of herself,” she explained.

May has said what she did was irredeemable and has called everyone in their family to tell them that her mother has taken her dog to the shelter.

Did She Do the Right Thing?

With the family divided over the situation, the woman was left questioning whether she had done the right thing, so she asked for advice.

People Responded

Someone said, “If she is not able to take care of the dog, then it’s not your responsibility as well. It’s already mentally draining to take care of an adult with depression.”

Someone else said, “She can’t care for the dog because she’s ill. You can’t care for the dog because you have to work or it’s not physically possible. The dog deserves better.”
