A family brought in their dog because of a medical issue that they could not afford to treat. This happens quite often and causes needless suffering for animals when they do not receive the care they need.
After we provided the dog with treatment, the former owner wanted the dog back. When I pointed out the fact that they were unable to financially care for the dog I was told that I was mean and made him feel bad. The end result is that my job requires that I make sure animals are cared for properly and do not suffer from neglect.
I'm sorry I made someone feel bad. That wasn't my intention. I was just pointing out that nothing has changed. The dog needs care and they are unable to provide that. So now I'm mean for pointing that out. I just can't understand people sometimes!
