Some pets even become abandoned, according to Brian Adams, Spokesman for the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Mr. Adams continues to say, "We've seen dogs that have either been chained up outside or left in the yard when the people have left, we've seen cats who are just set free''.
