My friend Janice rescued two dogs Monday left behind at a foreclosed house. The dogs were outside with no food, water, or shelter, and the smaller one was chained. The skin on her ears and nose are sunburned and raw. Both dogs are emaciated and were very scared. Janice enlisted the help of a neighbor and they coerced the dogs into her car with food. The dogs are now safe at Janice’s house and we are determined to find good homes for them. Though still shy and frightened, the dogs have made big steps in three days. The dogs were so dehydrated that they threw up all the water she gave them the first day. These dogs are female, about two years old, and have not been spayed.
Foreclosures rarely just involve a family losing their home. They leave behind their shattered lives, often so angry that they destroy the home by ripping out counters, cabinets, hot water heaters, pipes, even filling toilets with cement. Some vile people leave their pets behind. There is no excuse for any of this, but if our government doesn’t stop sending billions and billions of our money overseas, our country and our people will wither and die. If you ever wonder why there are more and more homeless people, here’s a place to look for answers. Janice is ready to wall off her property and put gun turrets in, and I’m ready to join her.
If you know of a home being foreclosed on in your neighborhood, please try to find out if they left pets behind. We know it’s hard to find homes for them, believe us, we know. But even leaving pets in front of a shelter in the middle of the night is better than this fate.
If you live in Arizona, these dogs are up for adoption. I would take the beautiful red dog myself if I didn’t already have six dogs and a bunch of cats. We don’t know or care what breeds these dogs are. It doesn’t matter. They need love, care, a yard of their own, and to be part of a pack, even if that pack is just one person to share a life with.
