I cannot understand why or how some people can just leave their dogs beside a road somewhere and drive off. It breaks me heart! If they can no longer keep their dogs because of job loss, financial troubles, health issues--what have you--isn't it just about as easy to drop them at a pet shelter where the dogs would at least have a chance of being adopted by another loving family?
I find this action heartless, cruel, and selfish. Such people should not even own pets in the first place if they are going to throw them away when things get tough. Animals were created by God and are living creatures, and "man's best friend" deserves to be treated with respect and dignity, and especially taken care of. So often, they give us far more than we ever give them.
When circumstances warrant giving up a beloved pet, do the best thing: find a loving home for your dog or find a caring shelter.
Dogs deserve such better treatment from their humans.
