How many people walked by, ignoring his misery??
He is being called Chance and his condition is atrocious. The stray dog was brought to the Harris County Animal Shelter in Houston, Texas, on May 25th – the condition of his body is pitiful and reflects long-term neglect and suffering.
After Chance arrived at the shelter, the following post, of utter disgust, was made on the Harris County Animal Shelter Volunteers Facebook page:
This is how Houston and Harris County treats their animals. They are thrown away like trash. All of Houston turns the blind eye time and time again. We see a dog in this kind of condition and quickly glance in the other direction, too busy with our own lives to stop and help. The city and county officials act like we have bigger, more important problems to deal with; in reality, we have over 1 million stray animals roaming our streets. We have DUMPED this problem on the shelter and expect them to be able to fix it with no resources. A community problem requires a community solution.
When will Houston wake up? When is enough enough?
How many people walked by Chance as he was suffering? How many people thought, “he is not my problem?”
There is finally hope for Chance – according to the volunteer-run Facebook page, Chance was tagged by Scout’s Honor Rescue, Inc. on Thursday and he is being taken to Vergi Animal Hospital for long-overdue care.
Dogs like chance deserve better – his misery was ignored and he was left to die on the streets. If you see something, please reach out to the local authorities for help.
