Dusty Showers is a humane urban wildlife trapper based in the Tampa, Florida area. He also co-founded The 2nd Basemen, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to Breast Cancer.
 
Dusty Showers has a wonderful rescue story of Ol' Man Jenkins, an old chihuahua, but behind it is the troublesome fact that many pets are abandoned in cruel and harmful ways. There are a number of reasons why people abandon their dogs, cats, and other animals:
  • Lifestyle, such as relationship breakups, new children or new partners, and moving to a new location.
  • Financial
  • Behavior
  • Health
  • Commitment

Remember that there are organizations who can help. The key is to take the time to find an able organization. Don't resort to abandoning or harming an animal.

 
In case you're wondering...
  • Yes, Dusty Showers is his real name!
  • Thanks to Katie Krimitsos for connecting me to Dusty and for Alina Berry Clark for never giving up on Ol' Man Jenkins!
