The number of accounts of animal abuse and neglect is staggering. It makes this world seem like a dark, cold place with no compassion or humanity left. This is why it's time for us to take action when we suspect or see abuse happening. It might not seem like an animal is being neglected because they have food, water, and a yard to run around in, but what you will see in the video will make you think twice. You may even find yourself hoping for the poor dog to make an escape by jumping over the fence.
Before anyone gets a new dog, there are many things to consider. Dogs come with countless responsibilities, just like children do. Besides the basic necessities, they need regular exercise, visits to the vets, baths, play dates with other dogs, and most importantly, love. A dog’s love is unadulterated and eternal. It is a dog owner's responsibility to make sure their new family member is loved and safe.
So, when Justin Long, an actor known for his light-hearted roles in films like Dodgeball and Accepted, becomes the voice for Charlie the dog, you assume his voiceover will be comedic. Once you realize how serious the situation is, however, it breaks your heart to see and hear how miserable the poor dog is. What Charlie went through is something no living creature should ever have to endure. We all need to be aware and take action, as this neighbor did.
