A Night Mission

The clouds shifted, allowing a bit of moonlight to shine through. Scrabbling through the undergrowth, Maddie was glad for it. She tried to move faster when she heard the dogs barking in the distance; she had to complete her mission before dawn broke. Maybe she should have asked Dean to help – but one person in harm’s way is better than two. She approached the clearing and saw the aging cabin clearly in the moonlight. She knew the imprisoned dogs were at the back, caged in small enclosures and mistreated until they could breed no more. She was determined that after tonight, they would no longer be imprisoned.

What are your thoughts on abuse of dogs for profit?

  1. Abuse of any animal for profit makes me so mad that I want to kill Colline, so yeah, maybe I shouldn’t say anything more. 😆

    Great post for the prompt and as usual you did an excellent job. I love your writing. 😀


      1. I totally agree with you there Colline. I don’t have any respect for them either and would really kill with a smile, but let’s not go into that. LOL!

        You are very welcome. You are such a great writer and do hope one day you’ll publish your lovely stories. 😀

  2. Puppy mills should be banned. Likewise backyard breeding, and display of animals in pet shops (not sure about fish and reptiles). Accidents happen, but if they were fined, they’d happen less frequently. Good story, and good cause.

  3. Dog farming is indeed awful.

    On your story, I thought this had a very strong start with an excellent sense of suspense and urgency. The second half was still good, but I think I would have liked to have actually seen the dogs (perhaps cringing away from her), or seen the occupants of the cabin (threatening, cruel) to really bring it home.

    Anyway, great work.
