For some reason, people seem to think that they can just dump their dog anywhere when they no longer want them.

This is really becoming a major problem. Shelters are overcrowded. Funds are limited, and shelters just don’t have enough room or money to take them all in.
Unfortunately, sometimes these shelters have to make the tough decision to euthanize the dogs that are sick or less likely to be quickly adopted.
Jennifer Patterson of the Patterson Animal Hospital came into work recently and saw a tub sitting in front of the door. She knew right away what was probably inside.
