Photo description: The black-and-white image captures a cluster of dog collars tossed onto a chain link fence. At the front hangs a collar with a tag attached that reads, "Special Dog. If found contact," and a telephone number. The chain link fence seems to run beyond the edge of the photo frame. In the background, the whisper of a one-story building is discernible.
