I am writing on behalf of all those poor pets that were taken to the Manatee Festival or any outdoor festivity.
Do their owners realize how much they are putting the pet at risk of death?
The temperature outside is up to 90 degrees. The cement they walk on goes up to 120 degrees. There is no shade, no water available. To me and my pet friends, this is a form of pet abuse.
There should be a no pets rule at outdoor festivities unless proper arrangements have been made.
