Doing drugs is not just bad for you. It ruins lives and relationships. It can cost you bonds with your family, friends and coworkers. This is well-known, but what – or who – people forget, is your pet. Animals have to live in homes with drug abusers, and if the users are that careless with their own lives, how will they look after their pets?
Zorro, a six-month-old puppy, experienced this firsthand. He was found in a ditch in Bixby, Oklahoma, with severe burns covering his body. He was even burned inside, because he inhaled the dangerous chemicals that usually fill a meth-house. Even his intestines were burned by the powerful fumes, so Zorro needed immediate medical care to save him.
When they got him to the vet, Zorro’s eyes were swollen shut and he couldn’t stand on his own.
