This is another example recently of dogs being dumped at the Odessa Animal Shelter. It is painful for our staff to see since it happens so often. We’re also getting a lot of litters of puppies and kittens.
The dogs seen in this photo were dumped outside of our shelter, in our playpen, with no food or water. This time of year, that’s even more dangerous with the hot temperatures. Just like with humans, those sizzling temperatures can turn deadly for animals.
There are a mix of good stories and heartbreaking stories that come out of the Animal Shelter. We share them on a regular basis in hopes of continuing to educate our community.
The message: Remember, a community can stop over breeding and allowing your animals to stray. If our community comes together, we can prevent animals from being abandoned.
