Barrio Dogs addresses the causes of neglect

The nonprofit organization sends volunteers to schools to talk about pet care and responsibility and assists low-income residents who want to improve their animals quality of life, which can include providing free fences. Zenteno envisions a resource center to help people find low-cost spay and neuter programs and regular veterinarians.”One of our really important programs is called the Barrio Watch Dog program where we try to really encourage the residents to report animal abuse and neglect — chained-up dogs, animals that are left in cages and pens,” she said. “People in our area just think thats the norm. And they dont really take responsibility in reporting. I think its vital that we get law enforcement involved, because if we dont, then people are going to continue to do this.”
