“Palm Beach County, Florida Animal Care and Control says they’ve gotten dozens of calls, reporting dogs left chained to trees and parked cars.

The calls are from neighbors who say they saw the dogs’ owners evacuate and leave them there.

Under any circumstance, it is illegal in Palm Beach County to leave a dog tethered or chained up if you’re not present.

But Animal Care and Control says under conditions like this, with a potentially deadly hurricane on the way, it’s felony animal cruelty.

Animal Care says they are working with the State Attorney’s Office to prosecute anyone who does so.”
