Thank you to all the folks that helped the husky dog....I think the dog owner needs an attitude adjustment....maybe put them in the hot car with no water! Very very sad.....
CC: You have got it right. Only throw away the key and let them sit and sweat in a hot car. If you care that much about your pets don't have any.
Owner's response: Blame the messenger. Don't take responsibility. Demand a temperature reading. Hmmmmmmm . . .
Perhaps this dog owner shouldn't have a dog . . . ?
The dog owner is lucky he just got a citation. He could have been arrested. There are new laws regarding cruelty to animals.
There is a hotline number people can call if they are witness to animal cruelty.
Contact The Peninsula Humane Society to get that number. I don't have it handy right now or I would post it.
Thank goodness for the caring people who saved the dog from more suffering and potential death from dehydration.
Good attitude of the owner. Be hostile to law enforcement and see what happens. Dumb, dumb, dumb. He should have been in the back seat of the police car for a while with no windows and, gasp, gasp no air conditioning!!
From the Peninsula Humane Society website (Web Link):
Responding to reports of animal cruelty is vital work, performed at PHS/SPCA by highly trained investigators. In cases involving unintentional neglect, we generally make education-only, welfare visits. However, we can and do remove animals from harm’s way when abuse is clear and intentional, then work with our District Attorney’s Office which prosecutes violators.
If you think an animal is being abused in San Mateo County, please call 650/340-7022, ext. 601 or contact us by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Contacts are reviewed the day we receive them and investigated as soon as possible. Anonymous contacts are not preferred, since we cannot respond with the outcome or call for clarification.
This dog owner is clearly yet another entitled jack ass. He doesn't deserve to have a creature as noble as a dog. I hope they throw the book at the jerk. It's too bad the deputy didn't put him in the back seat of his car for a while so he could experience what his poor dog did. A Husky is a cold weather dog, they don't tolerate heat well.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
