Dogs abandoned when family evacuated home

Family evacuated before storm, leaving dogs without food or water in cage

 

Earlier this week, police officers responding to a call about potential animal cruelty discovered three dogs abandoned at a house where a family had evacuated before Hurricane Florence hit. According to WMBF News, two dogs were discovered locked in a wire kennel and another dog was inside of a trailer on the 1200 block of Clark Street in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

No provisions, simply abandoned

The dogs found at the residence were not left with any provisions – they appeared to have been simply abandoned. The dogs in the chain link kennel were not left with food or water. The authorities were able to determine that the family who evacuated did not plan to return to their home until Sunday.

The dogs’ fate

The three dogs discovered at the evacuated residence were seized by animal control on Tuesday – as directed by the police, they are to be held for a criminal investigation.

    Please throw the book at this POS family and find new homes for these precious treasures……..

    That lot deserves to burn in Hell forever for their cruelty……

    Here’s hoping they get there ASAP (after dying horrible deaths alone, afraid, in agony & (worst of all) unloved)……

    I am always at a loss as to how people can do this to their pets. They abandon them like so much trash, what were they thinking, the dogs could survive without food and water? Please prosecute these morons to the full extent (which won’t be enough anyway) they need to never own pets again!

    All the information about the storm, where to go, what to do with animals, etc. All information readily there before the storm hit, yet these scum leave their pets in a wire cage with no food or water and another in a trailer? Hope these things are arrested after this storm is over. They deserve to be made an example out of since this was all out there for everyone to see and get help with before they evacuated and the storm actually hit.

    I pray the wrath of God finds these people who left God’s creatures to die while TRAPPED, with the SAME treatment of abandonment in a CAGE in the middle of NOWHERE and let them die a nice long, slow, painful death. Eye for an eye, evil, sub-human maggots. God sees ALL and forgets NOTHING! Dogs are better off now, that’s for sure!

    We have been through 2 hurricanes Matthew and Irma and we have 4 dogs a guinea pig and we live in a modular home we did not evacuate in either and Matthew 2 huge trees fell on our house but there was no way way we were leaving them behind. I just don’t get how people do this even if you are panicking you still don’t leave your animals behind.
