Neighbors called 13 Action News because they say two dogs have been stuck outside in the front yard without food or water for at least a week.
A neighbor, who did not want to be on camera because he has been going in the yard to feed the dogs, told 13 Action News it's been like this for about two weeks at the residence near Wyoming Avenue and Lamb Boulevard.
"The dogs are just out here crying, they're hungry," he said. "We got dogs of our own so we wanted to feed them, make sure that they were good."
He said the person who was living here moved out and left the dogs behind.
"It makes me want to take them in and just keep them but I can't. I got too many animals," he said. "But we love animals, and they should just be taken care of. It's pretty sad that people do things that way."
Another neighbor told 13 Action News the owners have been coming back and feeding them at night. 
Clark County animal control said it got a complaint about the situation, but said the owners are still coming and going. 
Still, some neighbors would like to see them do more for their animals.
"Don't get pets if you're not going to take care of them. Find a home for them, don't abandon them, that's not cool," said the neighbor.
