Owning a pet is a lifelong responsibility. Some people can't handle it, and they turn their dog or cat over to another person, or to , to be readopted.
And other people - like the ones in in the Port Reading section of Woodbridge - just find an empty parking lot off the beaten track, and drop the animals off to fend for themselves.
