This story is just disgusting and horrifying. Two poor dogs were recently left abandoned on a tar roof in New Jersey that was so hot, the tar was literally bubbling. And they were left up there without any water! This literally makes me sick to my stomach.
The Associated Humane Popcorn Park Shelter in New Jersey’s largest city says it got a call about two dogs in severe distress on the rooftop Friday, and its officers found a pit bull and Yorkie frantically “dancing” in an effort to stop their paws from burning as temperatures soared to 96 degrees.
If your stomach is strong enough can read the whole story from NBC New York if you click here. Special shout out to The Associated Humane Popcorn Park Shelter whose officers went up to the roof and rescued them. Very happy and thankful that they did! According to the story, the dogs have received medical care and are now recovering. Lets hope these puppies fully recover and this story has a happy ending.
We’ve talked a lot recently about the importance of keeping your dogs cool in the summer so this seems like a good time to mention again the tips we’ve provided to help you do just that.
Also glad that somebody noticed these dogs were in distress and did the right thing by calling the proper authorities so they could be rescued. “See something say something” applies to situations like this as well.
