A Mostly Happy End

Earlier in December, the animal protection authorities raided a small flat in the village Ljusnarsberg north of our home city Örebro. The flat was just 50 square metres, and 27 adult dogs and 15 pups lived there in great misery. They had not been properly taken care of for a long time, and the flat was covered with feces.

It looks like 42 of the dogs will have no trouble getting new, loving homes. However, eight of the adult dogs where in such a bad mental state that they had to be put down.

It is horrible what some dogs have to go through in life. Humans can be so mean. This really shows the need for animal protection agencies. I am thankful that they exist. In my mind, they are one of the essential things in any civilised society. Luckily, in this case, most dogs were saved, even though some were not. It was a mostly happy end to this story.
