This is nothing short of reprehensible. I just do not believe, that even if the woman suffered some misfortune as she probably did, there is any reason to abandon the animals. There are many, many good non-profit, no-kill shelters in Ohio. One of a Kind in the Akron area is one that comes to mind.
As for Ohio, it's as good as any other state. lol All my family and friends live here.
They need to lose the e-check thing though. sheeeeesshhh.
