Woman Hears Dogs Crying In Blizzard And Does The Exact Right Thing

 

FACEBOOK/EVELYN TULLY COSTA  People rallied together to call the police and, according to a follow-up post, the authorities did eventually arrive to the house.

“Dogs on President Street have been brought inside after officers from 71st Precinct went over, made the owner shovel snow to trapped dogs to get them INSIDE,” Costa wrote on Facebook .
“71st precinct is now investigating and animal care and control going over tomorrow,” Costa wrote.  “Thanks for all your calls.”

She added that for 13 years the neighbors have listened to these suffering animals, while the owners “kept tossing them out right after the police [and] ASPCA walked out the door.  Maybe something good will finally happen for the dogs.”

According to the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), some people are simply ignorant of how sensitive to the harsh elements our pets can be. “Our most constant companions — dogs and cats — feel the effects of winter weather as much as we do, only they are often cast outside to weather the cold or a storm owing to a misconception that the fur on their backs will insulate them from suffering,” the HSUS writes.  “Without proper shelter, food and water, these domesticated animals’ chances of survival in frigid temperatures is greatly decreased.”
