Most sensible people know that if you can no longer keep your pet, you find him or her a new home, or visit an animal shelter and properly surrender them. It should go without saying that dumping a dog alongside a road, with their old dog house, is unacceptable.
On Friday, California’s Santa Cruz Animal Shelter utilized social media with poignant images, and a stern reminder, after a dog was found dumped with her house:
Our officers are investigating a case of dog abandonment after a person or persons left a dog in it’s dog house on the side of the road in Watsonville. Thankfully, a concerned citizen called our dispatcher and we were able to rescue the dog.
Reminding people of the obvious…don’t dump:
The Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter is an Open Door Admission Shelter and we take in any animal free of charge without questions asked. Abandoning an animal is a crime and can cause unnecessary suffering to the animal. If you have an animal you no longer want please surrender him or her to the Shelter.
Comments to the cruel dog dumping incident have been pouring in:
How cruel, heartless and evil!
I’m glad the pup was helped. I hope it finds a good forever home after this. I hope the people that did this are found and held accountable.
Overall disbelief for the cruelty some people are capable of was expressed as well:
I will never understand that mentality.. it’s so ignorant. 🤬
This is heart wrenching! I hope someone turns them in. Just cruel!
