This little puppy was about five weeks old when he was abandoned at a dumpster. He is a pit/Lab mix.

The little puppy featured in this month’s edition of Showcase was found curled up on a blanket at a dumpster site. He was rescued by a citizen, and then brought to the shelter. The day he was found, the weather forecast for that night was freezing temperatures and possible snow. Add to that danger for this little puppy the dangers of foxes, coyotes, cars, dehydration, starvation, and the picture is even bleaker. In fact, any animal on the streets is also at the mercy of the humans on the street. If they are picked up by people with kind hearts, then the outcome is different than if they are picked up by people with no regard for life.

The day this puppy was rescued, we were in court for four separate cruelty or neglect proceedings. The conclusion is, then, that animals in homes are also at the mercy of the owners, their friends, and their family members.

How very sad for those innocent animals.

Thankfully, the good people are a mightier force than the bad people! Light always pierces darkness. There are many things that can be done to help animals. We love our shelter volunteers, and all those who donate money and toys and treats for the shelter residents.
We appreciate every person who makes the decision to have their pets spayed/neutered. We love our adopters.

Let’s keep up the good work! Maybe, someday, little puppies and kittens will not be thrown out with the trash.
