There is a dog being kept in a van on the Unit block of Bryant Street, NE. Cops and animal control responded but because Dog has food and water and “shelter” they won’t do anything. Dog is howling up a storm. Does the community have more ideas to help the pup?”
Update: “The neighbors tried calling around to the area home depots to determine ownership to no avail. The van was moved by 7 am. Unknown on the status of the dog that was being kept inside”

“Our camera caught this guy stealing the bench right off our front porch after testing it out to make sure it felt just right . This is why we can’t have nice things (that aren’t secured by multiple locks…) The gall is amazing! Even the cops were like ‘whoa, that is nuts!'”
