I saw a TV show called ANIMAL PRECINCT on Animal planet. It is a sad show because people hurt their animals. Some people move out leaving their animals there with no food, no water, and no toys – and with the windows closed in the heat. Eventually some of the animals die. The owner of a cocker spaniel and a border collie was 80 years old. She got sick and had to go to the hospital for a week. She left bowls of food and water out and left the windows open. She wasn’t really a criminal she just couldn’t help that she got sick. When she left, her dogs’ ears were just a little dirty (which is commom with dogs). When she came back, the dogs had serious ear infections! The ASPCA came to her apartment and checked the dogs’ ears every Saturday. Finally, on the fifth Saturday they scheduled a time to take the dogs to the ASPCA of Manhattan. When she took the dogs there, they looked like totally different dogs. The border collie was shaved and the cocker spaniel had a really lame cocker spaniel cut. The most important thing was they didn’t have ear infections any more! The show was very sad. I wanted my mom to join the ASPCA. The A+S+P+C+A = two thumbs up. I think that tons of millions of thousands of people should join the ASPCA. Here is their website and information.
