We will never figure out why people move, get evicted, leave their animals behind. How are they supposed to survive, especially when they are chained up or locked up/confined in a shed, house or garage.
There are no excuses for this, there are too many options and resources available: calling animal control, taking the animal to a local shelter, contacting a rescue group. Even asking a friend or neighbor to do so is better than doing nothing and just walking away!
Thankfully a neighbor heard Lola crying and found her tied inside a filthy garage with no food or water, probably for at least a week. ACN responded immediately was able to rescue this friendly dog that was so happy to see someone!
Lola was put into a foster home via our rescue partner where she will be adopted out, once healthy and spayed.
