Some People Left Their Dogs Tied Up To Die In The Flood And It Will Break Your Heart

Houston, Texas, is currently experiencing catastrophic levels of flooding due to the torrential rains being dumped in the region by tropical storm Harvey. Five people have been reported dead so far, many more are injured, and thousands have been displaced. But as people flee to save themselves, many are forgetting to take their animals with them, and as you can see from these heartbreaking pictures, dogs are being left behind to fend for themselves in what might be the worst flood in the history of Houston.

Despite Texan officials repeatedly warning people about leaving their pets and livestock behind, one dog was spotted holding onto a road barrier while a river of rain threatened to carry it away, while others have been seen chained up to trees and telephone poles in areas that have seen as much as 10 inches of rainfall in just 24 hours.

“I promise you, that I will hold anyone accountable that unlawfully restrains their dog in extreme weather conditions,” said Chief Stephen Carlisle in Roman Forest, about 40 miles north of Houston. “Dogs are your family members too.” We couldn’t agree more. Our hearts go out to the people and pets who are currently affected by tropical storm Harvey. (h/t)

This poor dog was left chained in Houston, Texas, without any hope to escape…

People couldn’t hide their emotions about this unlawful dog treatment :

The very thought that people would run off and forget their four-legged children is beyond appalling. They should be brought before a magistrate and heavily fined, along with a prohibition of ever having another one again,.....EVER! This is beyond the pale. I would never even think of doing such a thing. 😱 😡 😡

If there was a warning there would be a hurricane in my town I'd not only rescue my dog and my degus. My stick insects, my fish, my silkworm and the butterfly eggs I'm taking care of wouldn't be left behind either. How can someone be such a git to leave a pet behind? If I'm not ready to give up some stick insects who eat my avocado tree, then how heart less can someone be to leave their dog behind? Some people make me sick.

These people didn't deserve to have those pets nor do they deserve to ever have any again. Would you abandon your child in a deadly situation? Your elderly parents? There is NO DIFFERENCE. Another fine example of the disgrace exemplified in the human species.

I have absolutely no sympathy or any understanding for these people. These dogs trusted you and you were the only thing they had. None of you should be ever allowed to have a pet.EVER. The police needs to track down these people. They had a warning and plenty of time....A Lot of TIME..to save their dogs.

For those of you who don't live in Texas, you'll be happy to know that the Sheriff of Harris County (where Houston is) has already said the WILL prosecute anyone who leaves a dog chained or tied up. It's already against a state law to do so and is even worse, in this kind of situation

They shouldn't be chained up outside under any circumstance, should be against the law. You don't chain up your kids so if you can't treat a pet right don't get one. They have feelings too. Fear, hurt, feeling abandoned, love, they mourn etc.

They where warned in well time before the hurricane, and last minute you chain them up to posts? How horrid. This isn't all of them, I'm sure. These people don't have the right to own animals, let alone dogs. It's truly sad and frustrating how people will treat pets. Pets become family, and family is to stick together. Pets are like children, so would you leave your child behind to die in a storm? Absolutely saddening, and my condolences for those poor dogs.

My husband gets mildly upset when we have 'What-if' scenarios and I always put the dog and cat first. (We're newly-weds with no kids yet). But I've lived in Texas, and there are and abundance of people there who are notorious for abandoning their pets in any situation. Stray dogs run around all the time because the owners couldn't be bothered to take them to a shelter. So this doesn't surprise me, sadly.

Jo Bebe

I think it comes from all the third world inhabitants that we have in TX. I have never seen any state treat animals like this, and not to be racist or anything but it seems that people that come from S. of the border seem to think it is ok to get pets and then tie them to trees their entire lives or drop them off on the corner to wander the town until they starve :( it is really sad!

I've read about these dogs in the daily mail. Thankfully they were all rescued but it made me angry the paper was asking the owners to come forward to get their dogs. NO. If you can leave your vulnerable helpless pet tied up or alone to fend for itself then you don't deserve to be a pet owner! They should be prosecuted for animal cruelty if anything! I wouldn't dream of leaving my pets behind, they would be the first I would take. Like I've said in the other articles on this site, when you become a pet owner you take on having the responsibility, welfare and safe keeping of that animal. If you aren't up to it. Don't own a pet!! They are family, you wouldn't leave a child or your grandmother behind would you! No excuses!

I am not a big fan of pets. However, I believe that if you have a pet, you should take care of them in times like this. I don't believe in animal cruelty either. I might be able to understand if residents had no warning and just absolutely had no room for their pet. But, that was not the case. Again, I'm not a dog fan or pet person; but, I don't believe in mistreating your pet. It's good to know that people are taking these animals in.

I agree to not leave your pet behind, however, the city officials told everyone to stay at home. To not leave the city. Only now, they are having mandatory evacuations in areas. Shame on the officials! There are idiots out there yes (the ones tying pets up), but others who are forced to make tough choices. Carry the kids through chest deep water or the pet. Also, side note, where are the cats???

I understand people are TRYING to make excuses for them. ANYONE who is trying to create excuses never owned a dog in their life. Dogs have at minimum the intelligence of a 3 year old. Would you leave a 3 year old child like this because you had others? Of course not. Its the dumbest comment any human ever made. There are NO excuses. You don't take them with you, BUT, you don't want them to run and save their life BECAUSE???????. Despite the warning of massive flooding coming you chain them to a tree condemning them to death with them watching you leave while in fear? Only the lowest, worthless piece of manure on the earth could do that. Anyone who did this deserves jail and that's the kindest. You don't want to know what I would really do to them. I'm not only going to pray every dog is saved but anyone who DID this is turned in, severely punished and NEVER allowed to own an animal. In Katrina shelters didn't allow pets. Now they do. The US learned a lesson the hard way. No excuses!

I live close to this flooding, my town is full of evacuees right now. All I have to say, is Texas in General has a lot of people that treat their dogs like crap!! They probably have been tied to those poles and trees all year.......strays everywhere...... I don't know if it is the "culture" that carries this disregard or the "mulitculturism" that has influenced towns like mine where most of the inhabitants are from Honduras but it really pisses me off. I just can't save them all and there isn't even a shelter here....all they have is some cages next to the dump that they keep them in for one week and then kill and burn them :( It's really pathetic and I am from a state/town that treats pets 100% differently !

I dont even live in the US and MOST of the horrific animal abuse articles etc I come across are unbelieable stories of dogs that are found in Texas, specifically Houston. There is a great deal more than any other place in the world and these stories come from all sorts of sources, for some reason Houston is not just dominating the number of occurrences, but I can always guess when a story will be from Houston based on the sadistic/cruel nature of a situation. Houston has its own level of depravity that would shock even the most hardened, detached individual. So sad

I'm unable to upvote this. I'm owner of a dog 🐶 i live in the UK and have had times when we've been flooded. Under no circumstances would I even consider leaving my precious baby behind. In my world where I go so does my dog 🐶. In other words we come as a package, there's three of us, my darling daughter, my adorable doglet and me.

Or, just cut them loose and TAKE them. If a pet is too much, what do they do when they have an extra kid, tie it out too? These people should be fined, at the very least. I don't give a f**k if they lost everything. They'd have lost it anyway. Leaving a pet tied to a tree in a hurricane is EVIL.

The lovely thing about science and technology today is that we have PLENTY of warning before most kinds of weather events like this. People had plenty of warning, they could easily have packed up the dog with everything else. At the very least, if you REALLY can't take your pet with you, give it to someone else who can! Don't just chain it down, come on, that's heartless of the worst kind! I hope these pets are rescued by someone with a better heart than their cruel abandoners! There's just no excuse!

Can't these pieces of manure have ANY compassion in them? It should be 100% illegal to chain or tie or restrain ANY animal at ANY time but it should be a prisonable offense to evacuate and not take pets. Its murder, just like a human. I can't imagine the terror these animals felt. Please tell me the people who took these pictures saved these dogs. I wish I had never read this. I feel sick to my stomach and in tears. I never dreamed there were so many heartless, cold, sick, hateful people in Texas. Farmers and ranchers at least often try to save entire herds of animals and these pieces of manure can't save one animal. And then, to leave them tied, not even free to try to survive on their own, its calculated murder.

The photographer did. He called her Lucky and when he rescued her she ran away. The next day he went looking for her to give her food and when she saw him she ran up to him. The photographer asked around and found out that she belonged to people who had left behind a pitbull terrier a pony and a few other animals. He got all those animals to a Huston animal rescue centre but as he has formed a bond with Lucky he is going through the "proper channels" as he calls it to adopt Lucky and bring her home with him to New York. I really really hope he succeeds

I think if you can take a picture you can rescue these animals. Did you just leave them there? Also, I am not surprised about Texas not caring about their animals. These are the same horrible people that lunch shamed small children whose parents couldn't afford to pay for the school lunches. You cruel people in texas need to get rid of your legislators and get some Dems in who care about people an animals and life in general rather than fake religious leaders who only care about money. What filth would leave a dog, cat or other animal to die chained during a hurricane? So, I'm glad you got your pictures though and then saved yourself while the dog died. Awful, awful people. Boycott texas and all of its products. Disgusting bunch of backward filth.

MY DOG IS SITTING BESIDE ME. WE FINISHED EATING DINNER WHERE I FED HIM HALF THEN GAVE THE CAT HER SHARE AND THE THREE BIRDS WE RESCUED THEIR SHARE. I SAY THE BIRDS ARE RESCUED BECAUSE I WOULD NEVER ON PURPOSE CAGE AN ANIMAL UNLESS IT WAS SICK AND NEEDED HELP. ONCE I WAS GIVEN THREE RABBITS NO ONE WANTED AND I LET THEM RUN FREE IN THE YARD. IT'S WELL FENCED BUT WE ALL KNOW AN ANIMAL IN A FENCED YARD IS NO GUARANTEE THEY WILL STAY INSIDE THE FENCED YARD. MY BUNNIES ACTUALLY MADE A TUNNEL UNDER THE FENCE ONE FALL SO THEY GO INTO THE NEIGHBOR'S ORCHARD TO ROLL APPLES BACK THROUGH THE TUNNEL TO THE WILLOW TREE IN OUR YARD WHERE THEY MADE A BARN FOR THEIR FOOD. I LOVE ANIMALS. I LOVE PEOPLE. I WOULD NOT LEAVE EITHER TO JUST DIE LIKE IN THIS ARTICLE. WHAT IN THE HELL IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE? AM SURE AT LEAST ONE OF THE DOGS WHO WAS TIED TO SOMETHING AT A PERSON THINKING, "WELL IF I LEAVE HER WHERE SOMEONE CAN SEE HER SHE WILL BE SAVED." A FREE ANIMAL HAS A CHANCE TO SURVIVE.

And I hope that those pups find a forever AND loving home.

I know that people in texas is going thru very bad times right now and worried about there lives and there kids; but its no excuse to leave a helpless animal tied up; that's not giving them a chance to make it thru the bad storms either; at least untied them so they will have a fighting chance to. And for the animals that are in pens at least open there gates to give them a chance of finding higher grounds away from the rising water cause drowning is not pretty.

What isn't told is that the waters rose to a dangerous level , and when rescuers came, they were only taking people, it wasn't until later animals were included also. To be in this position, is unimaginable! Not able to take your pets, and save your kids... don't judge, until you understand the situations people were in. Livestock were also left in corrals, it wasn't something you get time to do much about. Help came later, in the form of regular old people, that came and got people and pets, and walked cows and horses to safety. So, please don't judge them. You say you would do the right thing, but until you are in this kind of situation, don't tell me, you know what the right thing is.

This is sickening. Even if you have to choose between your child and your pet, at least let the dog go free so it can try to survive instead of drown. Disgusting.

I agree with all the posts that were shown in this story. Animals are living beings and should be treated with the same respect that humans get. I really wish that the people who chained their animals to something could bet charged with attempted murder. To me, that's all it was.

First off, get the facts straight. You don't know the situation the people were in before and when they did this. Secondly, those of you saying "they should've brought them on the rescue boats" — again, get your facts straight. Many of the rescue boats did not allow animals onto the boats. I love my dogs immensely and they're family but if it came down to saving my CHILD'S life or my dog's life, I'll pick my child 100 times out of 100. Wouldn't even think twice. For example, if you're a single mother of two and you have a dog. Who are you going to save? Your two children or one child and a dog? GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT BEFORE YOU JUDGE PEOPLE!!!!!

Or also keep in mind that maybe, the person who owned the pet could be elderly or disabled...stop judging.

As someone who was very close to the devistating 2009 Black Saturday bushfires in Victoria Australia, I can firmly say this is disgusting! You NEVER leave pets behind to die while you've got the ability to take them with you. We had 4 dogs and 3 puppies who would have needed evacuating at the drop of a hat if the fires got over the hill and we had only a few days to come up with a plan which we praticed in the smoke haze. You NEVER leave them, ever. In the event of a house fire or storm damage I have a plan to get my 4 guinea pigs and 1 dog out within 5mins (yep practiced that plan too). If you are a dedicated animal parent and a decent person you have a plan to get them to safety.

It's unfortunate that those that tie them to something didn't feel like they did when they first obtained the dog. I agree with what John L wrote that the caring parent photo lady should be praised. I have a mini dachshund and some say I spoil her, while I think she is no different than any child I've had.

This is pure cruelty plain and simple and there needs to be repercussions for such. And not a slap on the wrist either. They should never be able to have another animal in their possession again along with a heavy fine. Maybe have it noted like a sign mandated to be put in their yard. If you can't treat an animal correctly with passion and love, then you should not have any animals period

This is messed up. I was under an evacuation order many years ago, the emergency officials said I couldn't bring my dogs and my cat, so we stayed. I was not evacuating without them. All these years later and nothing has changed, if we had to evacuate today and I couldn't bring my dog and cat, I'm not evacuating. They are as much a part of my family as my children and grandchildren.

I can't imagine what people would have been thinking. Better to lose your pet, than to return and find it's drowned body still chained to a tree. Also - I'd like to point out that if you're close enough to get a picture, you're close enough to rescue the animal.

The photographer did. He called her Lucky and when he rescued her she ran away. The next day he went looking for her to give her food and when she saw him she ran up to him. The photographer asked around and found out that she belonged to people who had left behind a pitbull terrier a pony and a few other animals. He got all those animals to a Huston animal rescue centre but as he has formed a bond with Lucky he is going through the "proper channels" as he calls it to adopt Lucky and bring her home with him to New York. I really really hope he succeeds.

kids or no kids animals are children would you chain your child to a tree in hopes that he would still be there when you return I hope not but I suppose if you do this to an animal you would be the very people to leave your kids in a hot car with the windows rolled up and not think anything of it. I have a dog and you better believe he will come with me I was in a situation when my electric went out in the entire apt complex I lived in and everyone was without electric for over a week in sweltering 100 degree temps her in Texas I had a dog and cat and kids my dog and cat and me and my kids went to stay in a hotel if it was to hot to stay there it was to hot for my furbabies so they came also they were part of the family I even brought my fish to my mothers house for safe keeping so people have to remember animals are a big commitment and not to be taken likely if you cant care for them properly do not I repeat DO NOT GET A PET.
