Laws Regarding Dog Neglect

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

We have a new neighbor <_<

She has a cute little husky puppy. She leaves it outside all day long in a fenced yard while she is at work and trust me its cold up here in Michigan. He whines all day, it breaks my heart. They do have an overhang where he is at on pavement no blanket or anything for him with a very short chain. I peeked around the fence and noticed she had no food or water outside either :angry: Im not sure of abuse laws and how to go about it. Are they anonymous? We always had inside dogs and my samoyed would get cold outside while peeing so this is breaking my heart.

That is definetly neglect. Just call your local animal shelter and tell them. It will be anonymous. If you can't find a local animal shelter, call your police department (not 911, though unless the puppy is in really bad shape) and they can tell you who to call. That is so sad when someone gets an animal that they can't or won't take care of.

Thanks, She is off for the weekend now so I will report it next monday to the humane society. She is a barely new neighbor (two weeks) and already having problems with her. She is also pitching dog crap in our yard which irks my husband badly because she doesnt want it in her yard and we dont have any animals. I think its why she leaves him on a leash so its in a certain area. She seemed nice when we met her but now I realize she is just trash :angry:

I'm sorry you aren't in NY! lol We have the BEST laws on animals!!! Call the ASPCA, sometimes it takes a few calls but yes, something should be done. Animals are people too!

Also, my bf's neighbor did the same thing to their dogs and after the neighbor would go to sleep we would throw cold cut meats at it and i swear we kept that dog alive! not that i'm dropping hints or anything! ;)

oh and yes, totally anonymous!

Please keep us posted!

I would try to get a picture of her doing it and then throw it back. You definately need to do something if you can.

Isn't that against some kind of law, too? I'd start documenting all this stuff now - sounds like you might need it in the future. Might not be a bad idea to mention this to the police. Maybe they can stop by your neighbour's for a chat sometime about all this :)

Thanks Everyone

Well things have changed thankfully. She called over here Monday night and said her 19 year old nephew pitched her dog's poop over her fence (very likely it could have been since we just saw the after effects) and she apologized and offered to clean it up but my husband took care of it, actually pitched on her side that day he noticed it.

We also found out on Monday her nephew had been leaving her dog out as her other neighbor had complained about the dog barking all day while she was at work. I had no clue anyone was there during the day with no car in the driveway and the dog tied up all day. Her nephew had stayed with her for a few weeks but he is leaving on friday.

I have a Husky/blue heeler cross, she is now about 14 years old.... granted its not the same age as the puppy next door but.... I wouldn't automatically feel bad they were outside in the cold, I have to force mine inside when its really cold out, she gets to warm in the house as her coat is really thinck and warm. the no food water issue would be a concern as for the whining depending on how old the puppy is it "could" be lonesome... My youngest dog (I have 3 total) is 11 months and is an american eskimo and for the first few months we had her she would whine anytime she was left alone because she was lonely... if we left her outside with the other dogs she was fine... she loves to come into the house but again as her coat gets so thick this time of year she also loves to be outside, just comes in to pick on the cats and get a toy to take outside and loose in the snow..... I do however have a place out of the worst of the cold and wind for them to be when I am not home and cant get them to stay in the house... Now summertime is a whole different story as we have A/C and they all dearly love to be inside in summer... my guess is wearing a fur coat in 100 degree weather isnt for mild mannered puppies, lol

Animal neglect is:

Statute Summary: A person commits the crime of cruelty to animals if the person:

Fails to provide food, care, shelter

Abandons animal

Transports or confines animal in cruel manner

Injures an animal

Seriously overworks an animal

Intentionally or knowingly tortures an animal

Overworks an animal

A puppy left alone outside could be lonely, hungry, insecure ...cold...hot..whatever

Dogs especially if they do not have a companion, will develop issues - barking, digging, escaping, licking themselves raw, tail chasing, separation anxiety...to name few.

Many dogs once aclimated to weather spend all day outside...we have many cattle dogs and sheep dogs in our neck of the woods who get anxious when INSIDE and want out, even at 30 below...BUT they have shelter from the elements, have built a fur coat adapted to the time of year, food and water. Sheepdogs will sleep with the flock in a sheltered area. Many cattle dogs snuggle into a warm barn and straw bales around them. The key is shelter/food /water. My own dog LOVES the snow and begs to go outside - but she also emerges from her insulated doghouse toasty warm, the kids even comment on how warm she is...and she sleeps inside at night ,and if it is cold and windy, we keep her inside other than walks....

Puppies need companionship - be it human or animal. Think of how kids are vs adults....they crave playtime and interaction...adults not so much.

Glad the self centered nephew is outs there!!

Sandy

    I am celiac and eat gluten-free, DF, SF and sunflower free because I'm highly reactive to all 4. I discovered about a year and a half ago that I would have severe and immediate GI reactions, similar to as if I ate dairy, to anything with sunflower/safflower products in it, but I think that's when using the oil became more prevalent too. Strange because I loved sunflower seeds as a kid. I've also linked it to places I've eaten out where everything was fine and then discovered they started using s
    So i recently had a baby and 3 months postpartum I started celery juicing and after juicing my stomach would be in so much pain. So I stopped it for a while and a whole month no pain or issues. I made an apt with a GI doctor to just get my blood work checked everything came back great except the Ema it was 1:20 he said it was strange because all the other Celiac panel test were negative my Ttg and the genetic screening even. So I made an apt with another doctor for second opinion she stated that
Potatoes are good for breakfast! Your concoction sounds pretty good. K, how about this? Peel & dice potatoes, fry them in just enough olive oil to keep them from sticking in a skillet until they begin getting crispy. Toss in diced sweet peppers or maybe chili peppers, onions to soften. I know you're not doing egg yolks b/c of iodine but you can do the whites. Pour egg white on top until the white is done. If you have a steak or some leftover steak, you can heat that on the side. YUM!
