In Orlando, a 12-year-old mixed breed had been found on Wednesday by Animal Control. She had been abandoned – tied to a pole and left in the sun to die. Brought to Orange County Animal Services, and dubbed Betty Mae, she rested in her kennel – not a sound nor a complaint, however she doesn’t care if she lives or dies.
According to animal advocate Cris Ferreira Reed, Sunday’s visit with Betty Mae could make the hardest hearts break into a million tiny pieces:
“I met her in her kennel laying on her bed on a puddle of her own piss. She is not any better in the yard. She doesn’t care if she lives or dies. Her white fur is gray and dirty. And her eyes just show her misery. I wish I could say she is loving, but she doesn’t know what love is. Please help.”
