This is a living thing, people!
At the height of the foreclosure crisis, HousingWire regularly ran ads from a nonprofit called No Paws Left Behind.
The charity worked hard to find no-kill shelters for the droves of innocent cats and dogs being abandoned when their owners fled the property.
While we’ve lost contact through the years, and the fallout from housing bust began to ameliorate to some extent, it comes with some sadness to learn the act of abandoning pets is still happening.
Take the following Facebook post as proof:
A friend of mine found this cute dog abandoned in a remodel house she bought and it needs a home. It’s in the DFW/ Terrell area.
This leads me first to ask: What kind of monsters would leave THIS behind in a foreclosure?
But more importantly, what should be done about it? Please leave suggestions in the comments below.
And who can forget about our former reporter, Christine Ricciardi, who wrote in this HousingWire article about two kittens left behind in a foreclosure and then went and adopted them herself!
Unfortunately, in this case, we can’t adopt this cute dog, but let me know if you think you can solve this problem.
UPDATE! Christine tweeted this to me, so must share the success story of the foreclosure kitten who found a good home!
