A photo of a sad dog, locked out on a balcony in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is causing a good deal of anger online. Facebook users are up in arms, wondering why nothing is being done to help the dog who appears to be living a pitiful existence.
Facebook user, “Lorena,” has posted multiple photos of the dog to Facebook and she has described the ongoing fight to get someone to do something about the sad situation:
This is a battle a group of people have been trying to bring attention to since July! This needs to be corrected. We have exhausted every resource possible. All we are ever told is “we are aware of the problem.”
The dog is on a balcony at a residence on Oakmont Street – why animal control finds the situation acceptable is a mystery. Is the tiny balcony, which does not appear to provide any shelter from the elements, sufficient? Is it even legal?
Lorena wrote, “We were told this man had already received citations. He has not resolved this issue so why is this dog still suffering?”
