Why Do People Leave Their Dogs Outside ALL THE TIME
As I drive throughout the different neighborhoods in Union Co NC, I see so many dogs left outside in the hot summer months and the freezing winter months and it just breaks my heart. I don’t understand how people can sit in their homes and have a nice warm meal and see their pets outside in harsh weather. There is a dog that I see ALL the time in a small fenced in area just staring at his house with his family indoors and it just kills me. I want to go and knock on the door and ask WHY? Why are you doing this to this poor little dog. If you cant keep a dog in your home why in the world would you have one?
There is one dog that used to be chained up to a big tree for a very long time until a friend of mine got in touch with UNCHAINED DOG. She was able to provide a fenced in area and a dog house with straw in the ground. The family was very grateful and I think that is wonderful however, I still don’t get it. Bring your pet indoors when it is too hot or cold outside. How would you like to out in that weather ALL day ALL night long.
I pet sit for a family in Waxhaw NC. I go their home everyday Monday thru Friday and the family next door to them had one dog that was in a fenced in area and had a dog house. One day I went out in the yard and noticed that they now have 2 dogs. Do they think that that is OK. Now 2 dogs have to live out there in the cold wintery months and the hot summer months. Last week as I went out to the yard, on this rainy cold day I looked over and saw both dogs lying in a puddle of mud. Yes, red clay mud. I just stood there and had tears in my eyes for these poor dogs that looked so sad.
These dogs get no human interaction, No love and attention. Just a bucket of water and food thrown in a bowl to eat. I just can not stand to see this anymore. I would love to be able to help all these dogs and would love to see and end this. The law here says it’s OK. I say it is NOT OK to leave your pet out 24/7. Have a heart people WAKE UP AND STOP TREATING YOUR PETS WITH THIS UNKIND BEHAVIOR.
I would love to hear from others on how you feel about this. Please leave your comments below.
