Is it OK to leave a dog outside, overnight, at Animal Control?


First, a dog left outside could be harmed by environmental hazards, bad people, or other animals. It just isn’t safe.

Second, it is possibly illegal. You could be breaking the law by abandoning an animal like this. You could be prosecuted.

Third, why are you dropping the dog off after hours? Animal control will usually pick up animals if requested. There are also reputable rescue volunteers and groups that will help you out… it is easy to find them on the internet. And if you are embarrassed as to why you are dropping the dog off… maybe you need to take a good, hard look at yourself and whatever you have or haven’t done with this dog. Don’t be a flake again.

Dogs deserve better than this. Do it right.
