If taking care of your pet is getting overwhelming for you, the best thing you can do is find your pet someplace safe to live. Apparently, this woman from Florida didn’t know that. She had too many pets and in place of taking care of them, she decided to dump them at the roadside
When a woman brought 10 cats and one senior dog to C.A.R.E. Animal Shelter (Critter Adoption & Rescue Effort, Inc.), she was denied due to unavailability of space. But there was also a warning sign on the fence of C.A.R.E. Inc. that explained how it was against the law to dump animals. Despite that, she dropped all the pets on the side of the road.
Sadly, no one in the shelter knew the woman’s name and she left without caring even a tiny bit for the poor animals. Thankfully, security cameras around the place caught the woman in action and the central Florida news stations are spreading the story in hopes of finding her.
The woman will be registered in the county’s animal abuser registry once found and would face a fine and also jail time.
Volunteers found one cat after finding out what happened immediately. Then, they searched for the remaining cats and dogs. Although it took several days, all the animals were eventually found and taken to the shelter. There, they were given the medical attention they needed. Sadly, the woman has not been found yet.
This isn’t, however, the first dumping that took place in this area. Sherry Silk, CEO of The Humane Society of Tampa Bay, told Good Morning Tampa Bay:
“If you have a pet, you can not dump them. Somebody should come forward and say something.”
According to her, someone tossed a four-week-old kitten right out of a moving car in late May. To anyone having any leading information about this, there is a reward of $6,000.
“I guess the woman that was on the sidewalk, she screamed. They got the kitten before it could get hit again.”
We hope this story becomes a lesson for other people to do the right thing when they are unable to take care of their pets.
