While other pups were running and playing with their owners at Woodward Dog Park in Fresno, CA, two 1-year-old huskies named Jada and Leyla sat alone and afraid. They had been abandoned there, left with nothing but a box of food, some toys, and a solemn note pleading for them not to be split up. When park manager Mona Ahmed got the call, she was there right away, and learned from bystanders that the poor girls had been there for 3 hours, which already posed a risk to their safety. “They could have jumped the fence and gotten hit by a car,” Ahmed told The Dodo. “There is a very busy road right in front of the dog park. The speed limit is 50, but people go 65 or more.”
Luckily, Jada and Leyla are now in the care of a loving foster mother, and are searching for a forever home. For Ahmed, however, it’s a bittersweet victory, as it speaks to a persistent problem. “This makes me feel angry. This is not the way you give dogs away. All they had to do was ask for help,” she stated.
If you find yourself in a situation where you can no longer care for your pet, do right by them and contact your local shelter. On the contrary, if you’re looking to expand your family, find out how you can adopt Jada and Leyla by contacting Mona Ahmed’s non-profit organisation, Fresno Furry Friends.
