She Drags Dog Into Shelter To Leave Him, Has No Clue Guardian Angel Is Watching Her
Sep 14th, 2018
Nobody should ever be cruel to animals. Anne showed this.
When Anne Flores went to the Harris County Animal Shelter in Houston, Texas with her friend, she expected to see some not-so-happy faces. However, what she didn’t expect to see was two women indiscriminately dragging two dogs in an attempt to get them to surrender.
Anne watched as the dogs stayed resolute, repeatedly threw themselves to the ground, and essentially pleaded with their owners not to leave them alone.
She was saddened by this sight. What made it worse was the fact that it didn’t seem like the women cared a single bit about these dogs.
“The dog laid on his back and kept on rolling over. It was obvious that he didn’t want to be there, and he was doing his best to communicate that”
The more she watched this go on, the more the anger in her welled up. She couldn’t believe how these dogs were being treated and how the women were able to reject them that easily.
“The women were pulling, but the dogs just wouldn’t budge. They had to pick them up manually because the dogs were not moving. The women didn’t care at all. They kept on laughing because the dogs wouldn’t move. It was as if they were just throwing away pieces of trash.
There was no sense of remorse or anything like that. I felt really angry and even I could tell that my blood pressure was rising at that point. Why would you get an animal if you know you can’t cater for it and end up doing something like this. It really isn’t fair at all”
She ended up taking snapshots of the incident and she sent them straight to Harris County Animal Volunteers. The group, which specializes in finding homes for animals at their shelter put these pictures on social media. People, upon seeing this, were immediately enraged, and they decided to get a way to help the dogs.
The name of the black and white dog is Truman, and it was scheduled to get euthanasia in just a few days. To wit, getting it a home was a matter of urgency. The other dog- named Mandi- was scheduled to get euthanasia the next day as well. The shelter was filled, and there was just no room for the two dogs to stay there.
The dogs were eventually taken by Cypress Lucky Mutt Rescue, but they still needed to get the dogs a foster home.
Thankfully, the rescue group got them foster homes. Truman was gotten by Kellie Donoghue, on behalf of Grace Mercy Love German Shepherd Rescue.
She said, “I first heard him howling. We tried getting him to walk, but he just laid flat on the floor and wouldn’t move. He was afraid and was even peeing. However, I saw that he kept wagging his tail, which means that all he needed was love. He just didn’t understand that he could get some from humans.
He was eventually dragged to her car by shelter workers. The ride was smooth and it seemed like human was finally getting comfortable. Donoghue said, “While we were in the car, he kept trying to get close to me. He was starting to warm up to me, and I was amazed at how fast he became comfortable”
Truman is now doing well, and he seems to be very happy.
Mandi left the shelter the day after Truman. Jackie Duncan her foster owner, said that she had a lot of health issues. However she is getting treatment thanks to her foster family. They said she’s loving, and she’s making steady progress.
Hopefully, both dogs can overcome their issues and live normal, healthy lives.
