There would be no holiday festivities on Easter Sunday for the unfortunate dogs who found themselves alone in a frightening animal control kennel run. There would be no laughter of children, no sniffing for hidden eggs, no love for the dogs who were cast aside by their families.
Instead, dogs surrendered to the Harris County Animal Services facility in Houston, Texas, spent their day locked away behind bars. Instead of laughter, these dogs heard the whines and cries from other homeless dogs who no longer had their own bed, their own toys…their own families.
On Easter Sunday, the volunteer-run Facebook page, Harris County Animal Shelter Volunteers wrote:
We thought holidays were for spending time with family, not for dumping family members at the shelter.
These are just a few of the owner surrenders of Harris County Animal Shelter.
Houston, we don’t have an animal problem. WE HAVE A PEOPLE PROBLEM.
Dogs surrendered to an open-intake animal control agency are killed first when space becomes an issue – the dogs who were betrayed by their owner are the ones most at risk of never walking free again.
Do you live in the Houston area? Please watch the video, visit the shelter’s Facebook page, and network to help save a life.
