Many countries around the world have laws about mistreating animals. It is against the law to abuse, abandon, or neglect animals. But that doesn’t stop people from doing it. If you have a pet that you no longer want or can no longer care for – you have options. Give the animal to someone you know or to a shelter – someone will take care of it.
Apparently, the person in this story decided that instead of trying to find someone else to care for a Shih Tzu puppy, they put it in a plastic trash bag instead. Lucky for the dog, a caring and alert sanitation worker noticed the bag move just before she threw it in the truck! She ripped open the bag to find the little dog filthy and matted.
