How long is too long to leave a dog alone?

We have a tenant who regularly leaves her dog alone for very long stretches- regularly 12-16 hours but a few 24+ hour times. I love animals and do not have a dog myself because I know I am not home enough to give a dog the care it needs. I feel awful knowing there is a dog next door who is alone that much. I am trying to to determine if I am being overly concerned/nosy or if this is something that needs intervention. I read the DC regs on animal neglect and there are no clear definition around leaving an animal unattended. But it seems if he has access to food and water and is inside out of the elements, it’s not technically neglect. I have offered several times to let him out or bring him to my place when she is not home, but she has never accepted. So then I am just the nosy landlord, or is there something more I should/could be doing?

My rights regarding interest on my security deposit?

I’m hoping someone knows more about this than I do – I rent an apartment in a row house in DC and from what I understand, DC tenants are able to be returned their security deposit with interest within 45 days of their departure from their apartment (assuming no damage is found, etc.)

As I’m preparing to move out, I realized that I signed the lease nearly two years ago and it says that in there that the security deposit will be returned to the tenant without interest.

Did I sign away my right to collect this interest? Is this legal? Obviously I signed and it’s my own fault if that happened, but I want to make sure that it’s within their right to have that in the terms of the lease agreement.

Thank you!
