We live on an acreage outside of Morinville.
I am sick and tired of people treating their dogs as disposable commodities. Over the past 10 years we have adopted three dogs that have showed up on our property. Some had been mistreated, one was pregnant and all were hungry and scared. We now own four dogs that we love and treat as members of the family.
For the past two weeks a new dog has appeared. He/she is scared and – you can tell – very hungry. We cannot afford to take in anymore and my heart breaks every time I see a dog abandoned in the country that is lost, confused, hungry and without a home.
I wish people would think before they buy or adopt a dog and understand that it is a responsibility and full-time commitment and not something you can quit on a whim. The countryside is not a dumping ground for unwanted dogs.
These animals need our compassion and love.
