    Absolutely heartbreaking, cruel and disgusting. Let’s see the most common choices for rehiring a pet:
    First choice: Personal friends/family
    Find a no kill rescue group
    Last resort: Public “Kill” Shelter

    Tying a rope around the neck and tossing off a bridge is NOT an “acceptable” choice…….. Neither is tossing the pet into a dumpster, leaving the pet on a busy highway, abandoning the pet in the woods……

    Whoever did this to this innocent furbaby has a reserved spot in Hell waiting for them where they will burn forever for their cruelty………..

    Precious treasure, your life mattered. I hope you get justice. I absolutely know that you are in Heaven. Please look for MacKitty and join his wonderful snuggle buddies group and RIP amongst loving friends………..
