Pet Abandonment is a Serious Problem

As an animal lover, I am appalled at the rate at which irresponsible owners abandon pets. Dumping a pet is the worst case of abandonment. Tying an animal to a pole and leaving it in the cold is a crime.

As pets, animals give us constant love, affection, and loyalty and this is how we repay them.

The Humane Society of Ocean City deals with the problem of pet abandonment problem daily.
