My dog spent 7 days in a pound two years ago. She was taken because she is a Pitbull, even though she was registered and chipped when a vindictive neighbour released her (and tried to say she escaped through the open gate even though my Dalmatian was still in the yard and the gate was latched) while I was in another city visiting family and left my dog in the care of flatmates. When I laid eyes on my dog for the first time I was horrified. She was under-nourished and lacking muscle tone, her eyes were dull and her coat was rough, it was not hard to tell what kind of treatment she had received while impounded. Please help stop the abuse.
