Holiday misery for wet dogs


An Echo Park Animal Alliance member posted today this photo of wet puppies at the North Central shelter, taken when it rained last week. According to list-server commenters, miserable kennel conditions are common at L.A. shelters.

The same person forwarded to me the following, which contained more info:

Please share the frustration my friend and I felt as we had to witness the shivering, totally wet puppies at North Central the day it was raining. The "inside" area that supposedly is "heated" was also completely soaking wet. There was no blanket or raised area for the puppies. ALL the dogs except the few cages on the "walk wall" side were soaking wet and utterly miserable.
