Animal shelter director says that people commit class 1 animal abandonment regularly outside her shelter — 3 Comments

  1. This also happens at our shelter in Massachusetts too. In this state, it is a felony and we even have signage that specifies that surrenders are to be by appointment only and the penalties for abandoning an animal are clearly defined. It still happens. Many years ago in the winter, I brought in a large cardboard box outside the shelter thinking it was a donation of towels; that happens frequently. Lo and behold! A dog walker was struggling with a dog trying to get to the box in our office. Wondering why, I opened the box and there was a mother cat with newborn kittens! Just shocking!

  2. Two of my babies were left outside of m vet’s office in a box. That happens regularly. When I was last there she had 5 kittens who were 8 weeks old and 5 that were 4 weeks old. I think she had older animals but we were there because one of mine wasn’t feeling well and it was more than I could know at that moment in time. My babies are the sweetest animals that you could imagine. We went to be interviewed to adopt a special needs Sphynx and the vet had been socializing her with these two so she asked if we would at least take one for the Sphynx to feel more comfortable. Of course we took both sisters. What a blessing they all are. A plague on whoever left them like that. What horrible cowardice.
