Let's Stop Animal Abuse

I was sent an email about a dog , nearly one year old, almost starved to death and was found in a bag in a garbage chute.  This story touched my heart and at the same time was so annoyed that someone would do such a horrific thing to an animal. 
  What is wrong with the world today?  Do people not have a conscience?
I don't understand why someone did not give the dog away to someone, take it to a humane society, post a free ad and give the dog away to a good home, like Kijiji or Craigs list.

On a positive note Patrick is alive and is getting taken care of.
Through this incident the Mayor decided to build a facility for the animals and is asking for donations for the animals.

You can support the cause to stop animal abuse and read the rest of the story

What are your thoughts on this story?  My thoughts are that I hope they catch who did this and that they do jail time.


  1. An update, the owner has been identified and is being charged. this story does not annoy me, it enrages me! How can a person do something so disgusting and cruel? Patrick is sooo adorable too! If he was mine, I would be showing him off to the world, not throwing him down a chute. My goodness, this makes me sick knowing that people do this sort of thing!!! I like how the mayor wants for his birthday for people to join the cause, I think thats really noble of him in the video. Thank you for posting this!

  2. one last thing, i don't understand why the owner didnt just bring him to the shelter either. But then again, if they abused him and did not feed him, they probably were scared the Humane Society would take action against them.... But luckily he is alive and im so happy the owner has been caught!
