To the Editor,
Just drove down North Lake St. looking at all the snow on roofs and still in many driveways including mine.
Most of the homes are cleared enough for owners to get out and around town, and with the help of our Wonderful City Workers the streets are open.
No human lives at 498 North Lake Street, so the snow is pretty deep.
No people live there, but two dogs do. They have been locked in that house for at least five years. Their owner brings dry food when they can, and leave.
No fresh air, no human contact, kind words, no green grass to run and play on. Filthy floors and urine soaked furniture is no way for any animal to have spent their entire life. There have been no footprints or tire tracks in the snow and the house for quite some time. Long days and nights for man’s best friend.
For all anyone knows they could have frozen or starved to death or have been killed by carbon monoxide fumes.
Still Animal Control says there is nothing they can do about it. What do you think?
