It is a Crime to Abandon a Pet

It wasn't raining this morning so Lee and I drove out to Cunningham Park so he could play basketball. When we got to the court I saw a pet porter dog crate with a Scottish Terrier inside. Sadly someone had abandoned this little dog. My first impulse was to dial 311 and report it as a non-emergency to the police. When I couldn't get through I used the white pages app on my iPhone to try to call the ASPCA. There was an office in Manahattan that didn't answer. Luckily, a police car was in the park. The officer came by and took the dog away.

It is really cruel to abandon a pet like that. Hopefully he wasn't in the park very long. Next to the basketball court there is a dog run, so the jerk thought a dog lover would adopt it. I am sure that the police was able to get the dog to an animal shelter and that a new home will be found for him.
