Scared and cold, dog was poorly treated

Published: Saturday, Dec. 1, 2012 1:15 a.m. CST

On the coldest night of the year thus far this season, a dog was tied up outside the animal shelter, by some human without any compassion or heart for the animal.

My heart was broken when I went to check on the barking dog, and what I found was a scared and cold soul without an understanding of why he was there.

Being a huge animal lover, I just could not understand how this human could be so cruel.

So, if you are reading this, you should be ashamed of yourself. Please think of the animal next time.

No. It would be too great a burden for homeowners to dispose of fallen leaves in other ways.
