I was assisted so wonderfully in keeping two stray, abandoned, Rottweiler mix, un-neutered, and badly dehydrated dogs from going across Highway 180 east this morning.
As soon as I pulled my car over onto the highway shoulder, a young woman pulled over behind me, followed by a young man – both of them helping to make this scary job much easier. Thank you! We managed to give the dogs some badly needed water and comfort.
A California Highway Patrol officer stopped also – his vehicle’s presence helped to give oncoming traffic head’s up that something was going on. The best part was when the SPCA animal-control truck pulled up. Two two smiling and gentle female employees lovingly carried the dogs and gently placed them inside where it was cool and clean.
Let’s keep together on this problem, Fresno! Stop when you can safely do so to help dogs at large. Pull far off the shoulder and use your hazard lights. Assist someone who has already stopped. Keep water, bowl, slip-over-the head leashes, and dry food together in a bag in your vehicle that you can quickly grab. Good luck!
Never miss a local story.
