I know you all enjoy a good story, but here is one of the cases
I dealt with yesterday since volunteering at the Warren Animal
Aug.3 I adopted a puppy out to a young woman (an adult) living
in a nearby town, a sweet little rat terrier mixed puppy that was
so glad to be out of its cage and go home with a girl to love her
and play with her and give her kisses. Yesterday, I logged into
facebook (been a few days since pup was adopted) and went
to friends photos. There I saw an album titled "Unexpected
Puppy," and it was the puppy!...but it wasn't the people I
adopted the pup out to. I got the girls number that made the
album and gave her a call and described the pup to her...
sure enough it was "Chloe". The girl said her family came home
to discover the pup in their backyard with their other dogs in
the pen with a note on the pen that read "Please take her.
They was going to kill her (talking about shelter euthanizing her).
I did get a name after calling up the person that brought the
girl out there to get it, the guy however I called said two other
females he was with decided to put it in the Mcghan's back yard
and one wrote the note. I did get the adopters mothers phone
number and gave her a call. She knew she had brought a puppy
home but didn't know where she had gotten it and told her they
could not take care of it right now,so the mother called the young
man and told him to come get it and do something with it, when it
wasn't his place too, they should have called us to take it back!! I
told the mother everything on the phone and the daughter was
facing a felony for "abandonment" charges.Mother went on to tell
me her daughter has mental problems and issues and was just so
upset. I told her we are going to let her go and the other people
involved putting the puppy in back yard this time, but they are
never allowed to adopt from us again, and to pass on the message
to her "mentally ill" daughter. Ridiculous.
The nice people that has the dog now are going to foster it until
it finds a home.
