Owners tie dog’s neck and legs with rope while dragging her into shelter

At the Harris County Animal Shelter, the heartless family of a frightened Labrador retriever tied a rope around her neck and legs and dragged her into the shelter on Wednesday. The “family,” still in their slippers, yelled at their dog named Maya – angry  and obviously impatient that she wasn’t walking into the high kill shelter willingly. And they yelled her name “Maya, Maya” as if the tone was going to encourage the panicky pet  to summarily obey.

Perhaps the saddest part was watching the young child trying to hurry his dog to her impending death into an overcrowded shelter. According to volunteers, there was not a single tear shed for their dog. Sadly owner surrendered pets are the first to be euthanized. How do we expect children to show compassion when their parents encourage such callous treatment of their dog?  Please share Maya’s plight with rescue organizations, friends, family and social media contacts.

Maya’s Pet Harbor listing # A480337 “I have a rescue group interested in me. My name is MAYA. I am a female, tan Labrador Retriever mix. The shelter staff think I am about 2 years and 6 months old. I have been at the shelter since Mar 28, 2017. For more information about this animal, call:
Harris County Public Health and Environmental Services at (281) 999-3191. Ask for information about animal ID number A480337.

Maya’s story can be followed on Facebook. Please note that no dog is safe until they are out of the building. Hopefully we will all see freedom photos soon.

    Too bad these white trash owners aren’t dumped into a high kill shelter – I’d euthanize them in a heartbeat.

    This is so upsetting. Dogs can smell death in the air you could see she knew that with her tell between her legs. Right now i have violent urges to slap all of that family from here to kingdom come. Karma will get her revenge on all of the family i can guarantee it. I hope that the dog will be adopted to a better owners then these owners

    At least the scumbags didn’t dump Maya in the fields. How the hell can you be so damn heartless. This poor dog with her tail between her legs not wanting to go. I am surprised they didn’t choke her. I surely wish abusers family’s would do the same shit to them when they were young. You heartless POS.

    That child is going to grow up to be the monsters his parents are. If they were REAL parents, their child wouldn’t have been anywhere near that shelter. But no, those scumbags not only brought their child with them, they ENCOURAGED him to aid them, which he did, willingly. It should haunt him, and God willing, it will, which would make him hate them. However, odds are he’ll grow up just like them, and another generation of scumbags with no regard for the lives of those entrusted to them goes on.

    Filthy trash,

    I hope Maya finds a home, which she has NEVER had. She deserves one.

    I hope they don’t want another animal ever. They should be banned from adopting or purchasing. Mean people.

      They will get another dog and do the same thing. The law still isn’t harsh enough. Our fur babies are still considered property.

    This really makes me pmad! I have loved animals since I was 4 years old. I am just in tears! Dogs have emotions! Dogs feel pain. I have a therapy support dog (Pomeranian). because I have Parkinson’s. He knows when I am happy. He licks my tears when I cry. We call them the animals? We are the animals. I honestly wish all these people would be treated just like they treat the animals! One day the son will be on the news, either because of the animals he abused or worse yet, he graduated to people! If I had the money I would make sure every animal on earth had a very loving home. They should start doing background checks on anyone who gets a pet. If the person hasn’t done anything wrong they have nothing to worry about!

    I’m sorry Maya that your humans treated you so badly. Maya deserves a second change to find a forever home that will care and love her. As for the family that dragged this frightened dog to a kill shelter, they should only experience misery for the rest of their pathetic lives.

    Maya was so scared she had her tail tucked tightly between her legs. On face book she is safe. They said they will update once she’s left the building.

    This dogs legs were never tied. Please don’t over exaggerate about this. She has been rescued and has heartworm.

    This dog did NOT have her legs tied so Rescue needs to stop with the theatrics to try for more donations. There were several LOCAL Rescue and foster offers.

      It looks like the rope is under the front legs of the dog as she is being pulled, I assume that is the reference to the “tied legs”. Also, how much money do you think these “theatrics” is bringing in for the “rescue”.? I m willing to bet the rescue will spend much more money on this heartworm positive, unspayed dog than they will ever see coming in!

    These people are trash & legal authorities should be called to make sure they are not allowed to own a pet ever again. HAS THE SHELTER RECEIVED INTEREST FROM AN ADOPTER??? Can he travel?

    Not only do shelters post it Inside but they tell owners, if you surrender your pet it will likely be put down. I think these owners need a wake up call. To be so cold after knowong you pet will most likely die, how about they walk witb the pet through the nightmare. Tossed in a cell walked to death room and hold your pet as it dies.

      I think that is a great idea, make them watch the death of their pet that they thought they should discard like trash. I wonder though, would it even register with these heartless people?

        Exactly, would it even matter at all to these ice cold pieces of crap. I doubt it would phase them. They might even get some satisfaction out of it. It seems that they feel she was an unworthy or bad dog and deserved some horrible fate. They did not give a DAMN!

    I am disliking humans more and more each day and people like this are a prime example of why I do. Heartless pieces of feces. I hope May finds a new home with a new name and but happiness get for her remaining doggie years

      I feel the same way. The more of these stories I hear or encounter, the more I struggle with an intense dislike of mankind. Sometimes, I feel like I am not even part of the human race because of this…but, I try to remind myself that there are other people out there that feel as I do and they struggle as I do with the actions of man against animals. Just remember, there is a lot of evil, but there is a lot of good as well; such as the people that follow these stories passionately on here!
