We took Hobo in about a month ago. He showed up on our doorstep cold, hungry, scared and lonely. He was someone's pet and he had been abandoned. Why does someone decide to throw an animal away like last week's leftovers. Yes, I'm sure there are lots of reasons but none are morally acceptable. Plenty of organizations exist that will help rehome an animal. To kick an animal out to fend for itself is just wrong.
