I know animal control has a job to do but the person who took this picture could have easily rescued this dog. Stop sitting around thinking someone is going to do something and step up...if I saw this I would get a ladder, some bolt cutters, a slip lead and go get the dog no matter what...I might get arrested but it would be for good reason and I would surely know I did the right thing. Sitting around taking pictures waiting for animal control is not it....
I agree with you Dawn and would have done the same thing.
Absolutely on target, Dawn.
I agree with you Dawn! I would've broken in as well, but maybe the picture-taker was not able to do that physically... who knows? This story (and picture) breaks my heart. </3
what would you do if the dog ate your face off
I agree with Dawn....and about the dog eating your face off...William..you have to at least try to help. Your way of thinking is why the animal is dead. No one did anything. What if....blah blah...yeah what if! Typical head in the sand attitude!!
Im sure a dehydrated dog almost dead would have bit someone.
Dawn and Jacquelyn, you are both right! I thought the picture had been taken after the authorities got there, not by someone who could've helped! I would've taken the picture foir evidence, then I would've done something to help the dog. There is absolutely no reason for that dog to have died iof that was a nieghbor taking the pi, the dog, at that point, was suffering so bad from heat exhaustion it would lucky if it ws able to lift its head for a drink of water, let alone bite anyone anywhere!
Wow. Shocked and ashamed to see how many are focused on judging the person trying to help and not the owner responsible. SMH
Animals were put on earth to teach us unconditional love, we still have not learned...
The neighbor coulda tied a bucket of water to a rope and lowered it into the yard if they didn't want to jump the fence. It looks like it had a bucket tipped over.

I think that these situations need immediate action. The person who reported the incident, should of saved the dog. It was good she called in about the dog. I believe in these situations YOU should help the animal. I would do whatever it took & not look back. The owner's are the killers, people like that sicken me.
She couldn't but. Read what I posted
This is so heartbreaking. This was a living, breathing being who did not deserve this treatment. Shame on you
What they also fail to understand, dogs are mans best friend! That sure is sad...
Kimberly, you and I think a lot alike....I have always said, if need be, a dog could escape with a little help...our help. If no one will listen to our calls of pleading for someone to do something....those dogs should be escaped one way or another...as long as the animals will allow us to help them. These stories are just disgusting....no reason for this dog to have been allowed to suffer. Several someone's need to be held accountable for their lack of doing their job. If new ordinances...

If new ordinances or regulations need to be put in place designed to protect these poor animals....let us pray this is done.
Killiing this dog was the wrong thing to do and the DAS shelter needs to know that. Our ire is going to be up and we'll be venting a lot about these kinds of killings. We are appalled and we feel there there are other ways to deal with this. People need to learn about helping animals by adopting them from shelters and the shelters have to come up with ways to get the people to adopt. Volunteering and also fostering are others that can be done. As for the feral cat, TNR is the way to go.
HE SHOULD BE PROCECUTED TO THE LIMIT OF THE LAW. THIS SCUMBAG IS A DEGENERATE
leave gods dogs alone .
