Most people treat their pets with great love. After all, pets are a blessing. They bring so much joy into our lives that we can’t imagine treating them badly. Coming home to find an empty house where your four-legged friend is not there to greet you seems scary.
In this 2019 story, a 17-year-old dog named Maddison was surrendered to a shelter by her family after they deemed her too old to care for. But luckily, after her story went viral on social media, Maddison found a new forever home with a woman.
Unfortunately, many people feel differently about their pets. It’s a sad fact that many owners grow tired of their pets for a variety of reasons. As a result, nearly 4 million dogs are placed in shelters every year. While this is better than leaving your pet to fend for himself, it is still disheartening to know that people have no problem giving up their pets after spending years with them.
