Why do people have pets if they can’t properly care for them? Why have a dog if you’re just going to abandon it at a shelter? Ann Flores went to the Harris County Animal Shelter in Houston, Texas with a friend who wanted to adopt a dog. While outside, she saw two women attempting to drag two unwilling dogs inside.
Ann was horrified by what she saw. The 3-year-old black and white dog flopped over on its back on the hard cement in the shelter’s parking lot.
“He laid on his back and just rolled over,” Flores told The Dodo. “It was like he was saying, ‘Please don’t take me in here.’”
This first woman was acompanied by another woman who was also attempting to drag another dog inside. “They were both pulling, but the dogs wouldn’t budge,” Flores said. “They had to pick them up because they just would not move. They would not walk in there.”
The two dogs were named Truman and Mandi; they were brother and sister. As the women fought to get the dogs inside, they were laughing. This angered Flores. “They didn’t care,” Flores said. “They were just laughing and giggling because the dogs wouldn’t move. To them, it was just like throwing trash away. There was no remorse, nothing.
