Animals are not possessions. They are living beings that should be loved and cherished and treated with respect. When someone decides to bring a pet into their family, they are making a years-long commitment that is both rewarding and challenging.

Like a child, a dog, cat or rabbit cannot simply be abandoned once you have become a pet-parent, you can’t just toss it away into the trash.

Unfortunately, that’s what happens to thousands of animals around the United States every year. And it’s what happened to one tragic pup in Richmond, Virginia. Last week, a passerby noticed something strange: a small, female, white dog, with patches of hair missing all over its body and “crawling with infections.” Whoever abandoned the dog — assumed to be a Shih Tzu mix around five years old — had wrapped it in a plastic garbage bag as if to say she was garbage herself.

The Shih Tzu will require serious treatment to get back to health but hopefully, in the care of people who care for her, she will make it.

It is truly heartbreaking to know that her previous owner treated her like scum and just tossed her aside.
But the reality is that the owner themselves is the real scumbag.

That anyone can treat and then abandon an animal like this is shameful and it’s illegal. In Virginia it’s actually a crime and the person responsible should be sought out and punished.

Sign the petition and tell Richmond Police that you want this person found and brought to justice.more
