Ontario SPCA / SPCA not doing their job!
There is a dog that lives a block away from us that is neglected and the OSPCA will not do a dang thing and it makes me mad. This dog is average size and is in a small outside cage with a doghouse that has no door and is about the size of the dog. I can't imagine the dog even has room to turn around in there. The dog never has any human contact except when my husband goes to visit him and give him treats and the owner decides to feed him once in a while. The owner is gone during the week, he works far away, and only home of the weekends. The temperature gets to -25 or -30 below celcius in the winter time here, and this dog is short haired.
We have complained to the OSPCA on several occasions and all they have done thus far is go to the owner and ask him if he is mistreating his dog in anyway!! Um hello do you really think he is going to tell you the truth?? They should have done a discrete investigation and asked around the neighbors to find the real truth. My husband is making himself sick worrying about this dog and he is to the point he just wants to go and take him home, but of course that is stealing and he would be arrested so I won't let him do that. It's sad that this dog has to suffer like this when there is a caring home willing to take the dog. I don't know why people like this have pets in the first place.
Oh and did I mention the dog is never taken into the house and is never let out of his small cage.
