This is Animal Cruelty

This is what “animal abuse” looks like!

What would make someone take it upon themselves to put two small, pitiful, under-nourished puppies in our fenced-in backyard without asking or telling us about their intentions?

It would have been bad enough to put two healthy puppies in our fence, but these little puppies were close to death when Gayle C. discovered them. Gayle and I carried some food and water out to them, but all they cared about was the water. They were purely pitiful and too dehydrated and hungry for us to be much help.

It was around 8 p.m. when Gayle C. discovered them and too late to get them professional help, so we did the best we could for them at the time.

We fixed a bowl of cool water and some food, and made them a place to lie down under our shed.

Anyway, last Wednesday morning was a sad time, for the little male puppy had died during the night and the little female was lying next to her brother. We called the animal shelter to have the little female picked up, and it was carried to Dr. Dixon’s office for treatment.

As of Wednesday afternoon, the little female was responding OK, and we hope she still is.

Now in closing, the two little puppies both were wearing camouflaged collars, so I know they had to belong to someone before the uncaring, cowardly individuals placed these little creatures in our fence.

I had to bury the little male, but was able to get the pretty little female to help, so all I have to say to these awful individuals who did this act is that sometime sooner or later, you will have to answer for your doing.
