Terrible things happen when weather conditions turn heavy. People suffer on the streets, without food or shelter.
The same thing happens to animals. The Shore Animal Control recently posted a sorrowful picture of a dead doggy. Who was found dead, frozen, on a sidewalk in New Jersey.
The animal control tries to avoid situation repeating itself by broadcasting the following statement: “We are posting this sad photo so that people will SPEAK UP when they see dogs outside in this weather and CALL so this doesn’t happen again.”
This dog has no ID or tag so he could not be identified. He was freezing cold, and probably escaped some abandoned structure he called home; he died alone, frozen, sad, weak and hungry.
The animal control agency said on their Facebook page that if it’s too cold outside for a person, then it’s too cold for a dog also.
Having fur is not enough protection, it’s not a sweater. Every year they find many dogs that have died on account of extreme weather conditions.
They want to prevent this from happen again, so Animal Control is imploring neighbors that if they see a lost and alone dog, they should to report the situation post-haste.
