Animal abandonment causes regional problem
Colleen O'Shaughnessy is tired of people dumping animals on her property.
As director of Gregory's Gift of Hope, 1374 Hwy. 65, in New Richmond, O'Shaughnessy said she's bombarded daily by people who want to bring strays, abandoned animals and pets to her facility.
When she tells them no, they threaten her with euthanizing the animal or decide to dump the animal on her doorstep, knowing she won't turn them away.
