It is one of the cruelest things anyone can do to abandon their pet during a hurricane. If a person gets separated from their pet and is desperately trying to reconnect, that’s a whole different story. But to consciously leave the pet behind while running for their own safety, that’s a low that is unfathomable.

That’s what happened to this dog. She was actually abandoned long before the storm. The person who shared this story goes by the name Amiawifeorasword on Imgur and she got in contact with the owners after she found their dog. They didn’t want her anymore.

That’s how they do things. They just let the dog go and don’t give it another care in this world. They should never be allowed to own a pet again and I hope they know this story is going around about them so that they can be reminded every day of the great dog they just threw away.
