DSHS NIGHTMARE SPIN OFF

So i was reading this post and it got me thinking. We have lived in our house for 2 years now and i just recently went to my neighbors house. They came over her and our kids have played together and what not. Well i was in a bind and needed a dog sitter and since they had 3 dogs and had told me if i ever needed someone to watch her then they would do it (shes a dachshund). Any way the morning i went to drop of our dog i walked up there drive way and there is just trash everywhere. i knocked on there door and when he opened the door the smell was horrible. I didnt go inside but i saw the house was just gross. Any way i pick the dog up 2 days later and she was INFESTED with fleas. It was a nightmare getting rid of them. I couldnt let her in the house or anything b/c i dont want the in my house. My concern in she has 3 kids 2 go to their dads ever weekend but they have a dog that sleeps in the bed with the kids (she told me). These kids live in filth. Can i call CPS anonymously? Also would you call?

You can call anonymously but I don't know what good it will do.  Are you upset the kid sleeps with dog?  Lots of kids sleep with dogs.  I think I'd have to see what you see to know if I'd call or not.

 if the house smelled when you opened the door there might be dog poop everywhere too. i wouldn't per say call just for fleas but if you are worried about the health of the children because of the smell than that might warrant an anonymous call

I understand that.  My son lived with his dad for a while but was at my house a lot too.  He always had fleas.  I KNOW they didn't come from my house because I had no pets.  They had like four dogs and about 20 cats.  I did call CPS for that and other really valid reasons [not saying yours aren't AT ALL] and they did NOTHING.

Did you at least try to talk to them first? It could be that they have a flea problem and are trying to get rid of it. Making matters worse by calling CPS on them would be wrong.

I told them that when i pick up my dog she was infested with fleas and she didnt have any before i dropped her off.

 I wouldn't call just for the dog being infested with fleas. However, I have called because a child was covered in flea bites. (I'm a mandated reporter... it was required for my job)
