Someone had already called animal control when I got there, and they came to collect her. The animal control officer was kind. He lifted her gently into the pen even though it is standard to use a noose pole to keep the officer out of harms way. Hopefully things will work out for her, but no matter what happens she is better off than she was loose near a highway.
I'll probably always be the kind of person who cries over abused and neglected dogs. It sucks, but it beats the alternative. I hope I never become desensitized to the suffering of others- humans or creatures. I would rather hurt when others are in pain than feel nothing at all.
