A blog for the Bloomingdale neighborhood in Washington, DC.
I don't understand why people complain about murals and new restaruants, such as Baraki, coming in when the neighborhood has more important concerns.It just blows my mind that people complain so heavily about this. Out of my rear windows I see a pitbull who is never cared for and barks all day who resides a yard full of crap. I'll trade!
JohnDC,Have you ever called the Washington Humane Society to come and inspect? They do follow-up on calls and can change at least the dog's situation. You can do it anonymously. . . From their site: To Report Cruelty/Neglect and Animal Emergencies 24-Hours a Day call 202-BE-HUMANE (202-234-8626).
I gave it some thought but my roommate who overlooks the house and hears the barking asked me not to. The dog is a large rottweiler who grew up in the back lot of a townhouse and probably not really adoptable if taken away.
Your roomate is wrong. Call the Humane Society.
I second that thought... this could mean life or death for the dog. Doing SOMETHING is better than not doing anything.
I originally posted the WHS info - and would have to agree. What is more likely to happen is that they require the owner to provide the dog with basic needs - not that they take the dog away. WHS doesn't have the resources necessary to take in every dog (nor the legal authority to do so) - it could just give your neighbors the kick in the a$$ they require to give the dog a better life. . .
