I found this dog living in these conditions by randomly going down alleys in northeast KC. This entire kennel was covered in aluminum cans and other trash. Really? Who does this? Goes out in their yard and throws all their aluminum cans and trash in the dog pen? Unbelieveable! I called it into animal control. When we called in with our case number for the results the next day, the action center told us that animal control had warned the owner. The volunteers and I kept monitoring the situation and the conditions never changed. We brought it to animal control’s attention and asked that they go out again. They did and the dog was impounded and the owner cited.
We have found dogs in such horrible conditions by going down the alleys. Alleys hold many secrets and if we just get down them and look, we’ll find the neglect. That’s what’s different about Chain of Hope-we actively go out and look for animals needing help. We always find them. Thanks for making it possible.
