Winter is Coming
I'm not certain why I feel compelled to drive down the many alleys in Fremont. Almost every block has one. Looking into peoples' backyards as one drives by offers more details than one might imagine (or care to know). For instance, the plight of many dogs I see that are chained to plastic boxes in the furthermost corner of yards. Too many of these dogs appear not to be offered a regular supply of food and water, or the company that they so desperately long for. Dogs, innately, are social creatures and want so badly to be a "real" part of their human's life.
I'm forced to wonder about human nature and wish only that one day this winter, when temperatures plummet below zero, that the people who decide to acquire a dog only to subject him or her to such conditions of pain and loneliness would be forced to be tied to a plastic box outside with but a jacket to keep them warm.
Do your dog(s) and cat(s) have feelings? Of course they do. Do most humans have feelings? Sometimes, I wonder...
For those of you who may not be able to afford food and/or straw for your dog(s) and/or cat(s) this winter, please call Society for the Protection of Animals. We will deliver food and/or straw to your home. We welcome such calls.
Anyone wishing to donate either food or clean straw for this purpose, please let us know.
