Advocates wait outside Olympic Animal Sanctuary to see conditions for dogs: Arrest Made

Comments Off on Advocates wait outside Olympic Animal Sanctuary to see conditions for dogs: Arrest Made

FORKS, Wash. — It’s a noble cause: Give sanctuary to dangerous dogs whose only other option is being euthanized. But critics say the man who runs the Olympic Animal Sanctuary has failed that mission and the many dogs in his care should be removed.

Despite concerns over living conditions for dogs at a Forks, Wash., dog sanctuary, town officials have elected not to shut down the Olympic Animal Sanctuary (OAS) – this morning, animal advocates from Dogs Deserve Better arrived to see the dogs’ living conditions first hand.

Dogs Deserve Better founder Tamira Thayne and Rescue Coordinator Robin Budin arrived to the “sanctuary,” at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday. The organization had placed a dog named “Sonny,” in the care of OAS and following claims that the dogs at the sanctuary are neglected, they have decided that they want the dog back.

The following was posted about the women’s attempt to see Sonny:

Steve Markwell’s vehicle was not on the premises but he sent two policeman to ensure that we did not trespass on his property. We bear signs saying “We are here for our tour” and “We’d like to see Sonny now”, These are perfectly reasonable requests.

It is 29 degrees here right now and we are told the building isn’t heated. We can hear all the dogs barking. They will bark all day while we are here. We will stay here until three in hopes that Markwell will give us a tour and our dog back.

In September, KOMO News conducted an investigative report on the sanctuary, which has come to be known to many as the “sanctuary of sorrow.”

Critics have accused OAS, which is owned and operated by Steve Markwell, of housing dogs in small, dirty crates and pens. Markwell could not disprove the critics when KOMO News investigators arrived because he denied them entry.

Former volunteers for OAS told KOMO News that OAS is:

  • A hell hole for these animals
  • An absolute nightmare

Even a Forks police officer found the living conditions to be less-than-ideal.

Despite the statements from former volunteers and a local police officer, the authorities and town officials have done nothing to shut OAS down.

Company Overview

Dogs Deserve Better, 2003 First Place Winner of the ASPCA/Chase Pet Protector Award, is a voice for chained and penned dogs, whose sadness speaks only through the eyes. As the days become years, many of these dogs sit, lay, eat, and defecate within the same 10-foot radius. Chained by the neck, they exist without respect, love, exercise, social interaction, and sometimes even basic nourishment. They live as prisoners, yet long to be pets.

Arrested for the Dogs at OAS in Forks Washington, December 6, 2013

Published on 8 Dec 2013 arrested 

On December 6, 2013, Dogs Deserve Better founder Tamira Thayne was peacefully protesting on behalf of the dogs trapped in cages at the Olympic Animal Sanctuary in Forks, Washington. She was arrested due to a bogus restraining order filed by the sanctuary founder in an attempt to silence her and interfere with her constitutionally protected rights of free speech. 

Many have been trying to get help for these dogs for at least two years. Complaints have been filed by former volunteers and neighbors, and Forks Police did investigate, finding horrendous conditions, in November 2012 but never followed through with a cruelty arrest. Instead, they made a deal with the founder of OAS that he would cut down the number of dogs to 60. This deal has not been honored, and rescue groups attempting to get dogs returned to them from the warehouse conditions have been denied. 

Rescue exists for every dog in the facility, and groups stand by to get their dogs returned or released to other rescues for evaluation and rehabilitation whenever possible. Yet OAS refuses to allow anyone inside to see conditions or to return any dogs.

During the time that DDB founder Tamira Thayne and rescue coordinator Robin Budin protested outside the facility from December 4-6, no one was observed entering or leaving the premises to care for the dogs. No dogs were walked, and only one dog was visible in the outside yard. The dogs cried in unison repeatedly all throughout the day. They were not allowed in and instead were met by police to ensure they didn’t trespass. We are told the warehouse isn’t heated, and even if it were there are large gaps in the wall panels and windows upstairs remain open even in driving snow and temperatures in the lower twenties.

Help is needed for legal fees for DDB founder Tamira Thayne and Robin Budin, due to the attempts to thwart their free speech with restraining orders and the subsequent arrest and jailing of Tamira Thayne.

A dog’s life at Olympic Animal Sanctuary is portrayed as wonderful, with the dogs residing at the facility being well cared for.  Photos on this site show the true life of a dog at Olympic Animal Sanctuary, and that reality is much different than the pretty picture that is verbally painted on the organization’s website.

No dog should live like this!

Animal Rescue Corps made the incredible offer to the City of Forks providing a safe alternative for removal of the dogs, but, as of November 2013, Forks Authorities have continued to refuse their offer.

Please join in our effort to bring an end to their suffering and get them safely rescued and into facilities where they will be better taken care of, or forever homes, if they are deemed adoptable.

FORKS, Wash. — Pressure continues to build on a controversial dog shelter in Forks that’s accused of severely mistreating its animals.

A lawsuit has now been filed against the man who runs the Olympic Animal Sanctuary, accusing him of “failing to provide adequate and humane care” for a dog named Leroy and refusing to give back the dog placed there temporarily.

UPDATE: Justice, The Dog Set On Fire, Receives No Justice

Comments Off on UPDATE: Justice, The Dog Set On Fire, Receives No Justice

Update August 21, 2013 10:35 a.m:Since the District Attorney‘s office is considering an appeal, the petition asking for the maximum sentence (link is below) has been reopened for signatures.

In April, 2012, an 18-year-old man was arrested and charged with animal cruelty.Darius Ewing poured lighter fluid on a four-month-old puppy, then flicked a lit cigarette at him. The police report stated that a group of people watched and laughed as Ewing threw his lit cigarette at the dog.

Darius Ewing

The Labrador puppy suffered from third degree burns on more than 70 percent of his body. His poor little body could not handle it, and ten days after being set on fire, the puppy died.

The puppy was named “Justice” by his rescuers, DFW Rescue Me, since that is what they hoped he would get.

But that does not seem to be the case.

The man who lit Justice on fire, Darius Ewing, pleaded guilty to one count of felony animal cruelty. Ewing entered a plea on Tuesday, agreeing to a five-year sentence. The judge on the case, Larry Mitchell, reduced his sentence to two years. WFFA.com reports that the judge “lowered it to two years, saying prosecutors failed to prove that a ‘deadly weapon’ was used.”

Three others also pleaded guilty to one count each of felony animal cruelty. Darius Carey, 25, was sentenced to two years in jail. Richard Valentine, 25, and Adrian Ayers, 21, each received 15 months in jail.

Ayers, Carey, Ewing

In Texas, State Jail Felonies are punishable with a fine of up to $10,000 and/or a jail sentence of up to 10 years.

Jonnie England of the Texas Humane Alliance says all who were present for sentencing in the courtroom were shocked. “There was just no justice for Justice here today,” England said.

Prosecutors are considering an appeal for Ewing’s case.

Animal advocate group Hand4Paws wrote a petition asking that Darius Ewing receive the maximum sentence. The petition received over 37,000 signatures. The petition was sent to the judge on the case, Larry Mitchell.

Hunterdon Humane Animal Shelter Faces Animal Cruelty Charges

Comments Off on Hunterdon Humane Animal Shelter Faces Animal Cruelty Charges

Distressing news on Thursday when the New Jersey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animal’s Law Enforcement Division joined with the Hunterdon County Prosecutor’s Office and issued two search warrants for the Hunterdon Humane Animal Shelter on Stamets Road in Alexandria Road and a nearby veterinarian hospital.

According to N.J.com, Captain Rick Yocum, the president of the New Jersey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals stated an investigation has been ongoing because of complaints about inhumane conditions at the facility.

Seventeen cats were removed and were transported to the Flemington Animal Hospital. Four of the cats were humanely euthanized. All of the animals have been receiving medical attention. The facility failed to quarantine sick cats with respiratory infections thus spreading illness to healthy cats.

There are also two pigs living in terrible condition at the facility. A decision from the Department of Agriculture will determine their fate.

Charges are expected to be filed within a week to ten days.

Local Woman Charged With Animal Cruelty

Comments Off on Local Woman Charged With Animal Cruelty

A High Point woman has been charged with animal cruelty according to the Randolph County Health Department.

Mimi Cooper, public health director, confirmed that Donna Burkhart, of 1205 Blain St. in High Point, has been charged with one count of misdemeanor animal cruelty. She also faces a felony cruelty to animals charge from March.

Cooper said Burkhart housed her animals on Kimery Lane in Liberty and the animals were in poor conditions without food and water. “We started getting calls about these horses years ago,” Cooper said. “When we would go, the horses looked fine.

When we would contact Burkhart she would tell us that she fed and watered her  horses.” Cooper said in March that all changed. “One of our officers was there checking out a complaint and we found two donkeys in horrendous condition,” Cooper said.

One donkey had a halter that apparently was put on when he was young and had never been taken off. According to Cooper, he was not socialized and could not be touched by humans.

The other donkey had not had his feet trimmed in at least a year, according to Cooper.
“It’s very painful to have to walk on and it’s like walking on your fingernails,” she said.

According to Cooper, Burkhart surrendered both of the donkeys to the health department, a vet was called out, and the team sedated the donkey with the embedded collar.

“He was so stressed and in such poor condition that he died while we were giving him sedation,” Cooper said. “The other one we brought back to the shelter, had his feet fixed and found him an adoptive home.”

Cooper said that they continued to monitor the other horses that Burkhart had on the property. They received a call one day that the horses were without food and water.
After leaving a note and trying to call Burkhart, Cooper said she went to the Randolph County District Attorney and the Magistrate’s Office to get a warrant to seize the seven remaining horses on the property.

“Three of the horses are in very poor condition and the other three are in okay condition,” Cooper said.
She said that she does not know when Burkhart will go to court on the charges. Burkhart could not be reached for comment Thursday.

DiPietro Proposes Animal Abuse Registry

Comments Off on DiPietro Proposes Animal Abuse Registry

Assemblyman David DiPietro, R-East Aurora, has introduced legislation that would create an animal abuse registry and prevent those convicted of animal abuses from possessing, adopting, owning, purchasing or exercising control over any animal.

DiPietro introduced Assembly Bill 7363 to correspond with annual Animal Advocacy Day, which was observed Tuesday.

 “On Animal Advocacy Day, we must ask ourselves; is there anything we can do for animals better than preventing further abuse?” DiPietro said. “If you are convicted of doing harm to an animal, you should be stripped of the opportunity to own animals. The abuse of animals is something we should strive to eliminate from our society, and I believe the best way to limit the cases is to prevent repeat offenders. I hope my colleagues in the Assembly will join me in protecting innocent animals.”

Aside from the creation of a registry, the bill would require animal shelters and pet dealers consult the registry before surrendering an animal to anyone. In order for a convicted animal abuser to regain the ability to own an animal, a court must decide on whether or not it is safe for the animal to be in the person’s possession.

New York State Animal Advocacy Day is a bipartisan event sponsored by Assemblyman Jim Tedisco and state Sen. Greg Ball in which members of the Assembly and Senate are brought together to protect animals from abuse.

Assembly Bill 7363 has been referred to the Assembly Agriculture Committee.

Lauderdale Couple Charged With 14 Counts of Animal Cruelty In Neglect of Dogs

Comments Off on Lauderdale Couple Charged With 14 Counts of Animal Cruelty In Neglect of Dogs

“I can’t think of anything to say without upsetting too many people, by just using expletives; but I’m sure you all know what I mean; as you’re probably saying what I was thinking. All I will say is I hope these ignorant bxxxxxds get what they deserve & some serious jail time for their cowardly cruel actions. If anyone can help out the innocent little souls in the middle of all this, in whatever way possible; please see the links below.”

Ronald and Carla Cannon, the owners of a property on County Road 182 in Lauderdale County, Ala. were charged with multiple counts of animal cruelty on Thursday after 14 dogs were removed. The animals had been suffering from extreme neglect.

According to 48News, Florence-Lauderdale Animal Shelter responded to neighborhood complaints about dogs running loose, scavenging for food, and suffering from egregious skin infections.

When authorities arrived, they found skeletons of puppies and adult dogs; the dogs had been abandoned and left to survive on their own.

It took Animal Control three days to capture all of the animals.

When 48News interviewed Debbie Rapphun about the condition of the dogs and the subsequent seizure Rapphun stated:

“I hope this will show people out in the community you cannot treat animals this way. It is inhumane. These animals, no matter what people say, do have feelings. They hurt, they’re in pain, they’re starving, they’re scared.”

A tiny four-month-old dark grey puppy named Kinley has captured the hearts of many. His photographs on the Facebook page of Florence-Lauderdale Animal Shelter openly demonstrates the terrible consequences of animal neglect.

Kinley has been on IV fluids at a local veterinarian’s office, has severe mange, and continues to fight eye and ear infections.

All of the dogs will need extended care before they will be eligible for adoption. Most of the dogs suffer from Demodex mange which is a non-contagious form of mange mainly due to poor care and poor nutrition.

Help from local residents who want to help foster some of these dogs would be welcome. At the current time, the shelter is filled to capacity.

Please consider donating to the dogs – it’s most likely their first chance at being loved and cared for by kind humans.

Pastor’s Animal Cruelty Trial Draws A Crowd

Comments Off on Pastor’s Animal Cruelty Trial Draws A Crowd

The misdemeanor trial of a pastor charged with animal cruelty in the death of a cat drew a crowd of 25 onlookers Monday, overshadowing the Bastrop County commissioners meeting next door.

The defendant, 56-year-old Rick Bartlett, the former pastor of Bastrop Christian Church, was the chaplain for the Bastrop Police Department at the time the cat died. The crowd in the courtroom

Rick Bartlett

included Sarah and Eddie Bellowners of Moody, the dead cat — who are suing Bartlett for damages, and Sheila Smith who heads Shadow Cats, a Central Texas nonprofit cat rescue.

Bartlett, who had complained of strays in his neighborhood, trapped the cat and took it to the police department Jan. 17, 2012. Animal control officer Susan Keys pointed out that the cat had tags with the address and phone number for its owners, and offered to return it to them, an arrest affidavit says.

But Bartlett convinced Keys to allow him to return the cat. According to the affidavit, after Bartlett drove away Moody either fell or jumped out of the cage because the cage door had been left open.

Moody was found, badly injured, under the tall bridge over the Colorado River near downtown. Prosecutors allege Bartlett, who last had custody of Moody, was careless and charged him with animal cruelty, a Class A misdemeanor.

Bartlett had nothing to do with the cat’s death, his attorney said. A five-man, one-woman jury is deciding the case this week.

Keys, who no longer works with animal control, was one of the first witnesses. She testified that while she has no personal knowledge of how the cat ended up on a walking path in the park with serious injuries, she had last seen it with Bartlett, and she became suspicious of his story when questioning him two days later.

A former Bastrop pastor is on trial for animal cruelty in connection with the death of Moody, the cat.

“I trusted him to do that,” said Keys of allowing Bartlett to return the cat to its owners. Keys later went to the park in response to an injured animal call, and took the cat to a veterinarian’s office, where it died.

Keys testified she called Bartlett on Jan. 19 to ask if he knew what happened. “I asked him if he let the cat out of the trap. He said, ‘no.’ He said he went back to the church and it was ‘just gone.’

Keys said she turned the case over to police. “I became suspicious about him being honest,” she said. Under questioning by county prosecutor James Rhodes, Keys also said she learned that Bartlett changed his story when talking to police. “I did hear that,” she said. Defense attorney Chris Dillon objected to the statement as hearsay.

In his opening statement to the jury, Dillon said the cat was fine when Bartlett last saw it. “Rick came back to the church and parked in the shade to protect the cat. At about 1 p.m., he let the cat out of the cage. Three-and-a-half hours later the cat was found,” he said.

Testimony resumes Thursday morning. Dillon said Monday he had not decided whether Bartlett will take the stand.

North Carolina Animal Shelter Worker Charged With Molesting Dogs

Comments Off on North Carolina Animal Shelter Worker Charged With Molesting Dogs

“There is no wonder this sicko volunteered to work at this shelter; he offered his services freely, so he could satisfy his own personal agenda. To Perverted reprobates like him, working with animals is an easy way to satisfy their pleasure at the demise of others!! Obviously they should not be allowed to work with animals, but how does an employee know, if the person he is about to hire, has a history of animal cruelty or abuse? 

The Sex offender registration is a system in various states designed to allow government authorities to keep track of the residence and activities of sex offenders, including those who have completed their criminal sentences. In some jurisdictions, such as the United States registration is accompanied by notification requirements. The information in the registry is made available to the general public via a website or other means.

In the United Kingdom, the Violent and Sex Offender Register (ViSOR) is a database of records of those required to register with the Police under the Sexual Offences Act 2003, those jailed for more than 12 months for violent offences, and unconvicted people thought to be at risk of offending. The Register can be accessed by the PoliceNational Probation Service and HM Prison Service personnel. It is managed by the National Policing Improvement Agency of the Home Office. (Source Wikipedia)

 So why not use a similar setup as the above Register; to keep a record of animal abusers etc.. Animal abuse & cruelty cases are rising at an alarming rate, with many cases being repeat offenders; something has to be done to protect the innocent! We already know from well documented evidence, that some of the most prolific, well-known child rapists & killers started off their life of crime; by hurting animals! Which is why I personally think ‘Animal Abuse Registers’ should be implemented in every County; ASAP!!

On Thursday, Raleigh, N.C., police charged a 21-year-old man, who allegedly sexually molested dogs at a Wake County animal shelter, with four felony counts of crime against nature and three felony counts of disseminating obscenity.

According to Thursday’s WWAY 3 News, tipsters alerted officials to Seadon Collins Etienne Henrich, a volunteer at the Wake County animal shelter, who allegedly engaged in deviant behavior with dogs at the facility.

Henrich is accused of posting photos of these acts of bestiality on the Internet.

According to an arrest warrant, Henrich engaged in the illicit activity at least four times, stating that he:

“willfully and feloniously did commit the abominable and detestable crime against nature with a DOG,”

Henrich is accused of posting several photos of him “engaged in a sex act with a dog,” on a bestiality website.

According to the Winston-Salem Journal, investigators believe that the lewd incidents took place over the course of 18 months. Henrich volunteered at night, during which time he was alone with the dogs.

On Thursday, Henrich was booked into the Wake County jail where he is being held on $70,000 bail.

WTF…CAT TRAUMATIZED BY SICK CRUELTY…WHY???

Just when you think you have seen the worst animal cruelty cases, another one comes out of the woodwork even sicker.

How cruel can anyone be? Amigo was found like this and left in a box in a parking lot

On Thursday morning, a shelter worker at the County of Los Angeles Department of Animal Care and Control discovered a box outside of the Baldwin Park parking lot. When he opened the box, it was a cat whose mouth, nose, and paws had been tied with red duct tape.

According to the San Gabriel Valley Tribune, the shelter worker, Abraham Contreras discovered the cat and brought the two-year-old male domestic short hair cat into the shelter where the duct tape was removed.

The cat was gasping for breath, and although quite scared and timid, he is now making progress in his rehabilitation.

Named Amigo by his rescuers, the lucky cat will be placed in a foster home until he is ready for adoption.

DACC Director Marcia Mayeda stated:

“I can’t imagine why someone would do this to a cat. Animal cruelty is heartbreaking, intolerable and usually a precursor to human violence.

Petitions: Romania: Please Do Not Allow The Killing Of Healthy Dogs!

Comments Off on Petitions: Romania: Please Do Not Allow The Killing Of Healthy Dogs!

“I’m posting this petition on behalf ” Occupy For Animals”  because I feel so strongly about the way street animals are treated in Romania; which could so easily be solved, by registration, identification, sterilization & vaccination. 

I am hoping people will read the following information, learn about what is happening in Romania; & sign the petitions to end this barbaric cruelty . Please read the entire post below, then sign the petitions & send to friends etc. The rest of the world has to know what happens to street animals in Romania etc. Please also sign the petitions at the end of this post; which are just as important!”

The street dogs of Romania are hated, poisoned, beaten, stabbed, shot, run over by cars, burned, and dumped in pits to starve to death. Some who are killed have their ears cut off by people who are able to turn them in for “rewards”. Hundreds of thousands of innocent dogs condemned to death every year, their only crime is being born. :-http://www.occupyforanimals.org/romania–organized-crime–stray-dog-business.html

This petition was started by Occupy for Animals! on April 13, 2013 – the petition letter that comes both in Romanian and English has been provided by our friend, Mira Iordanescu.

ABOUT THE ISSUE:

Romania, as a country member of the EU, must implement those measures to control the overpopulation of stray animals which have been proven efficient in all the civilized world: capture/sterilize/return …. but it appears that very many mayors in Romania have decided to kill as many stray dogs as possible.

In mid March 2013, the Romanian Senate has passed, with an overwhelming majority, the Bill 771/912/2007, regarding the management of stray animals, and based on the Judiciary Committee of the Romanian Parliament, only the animals suffering from incurable ailments can be euthanized.

According to the information that we have received from Romanian activists, this proposal did not sound well with many mayors in Romania, as well as many veterinarians (!) and the Association of Romanian Municipalities has contacted the Committee for Public Administration at the Romanian Parliament during their session from 3rd of April 2013, and proposed the most horrible amendments possible, of which the euthanasia after only 10 days of all animals captured and living in state run shelters (public shelters) being the most horrible and barbaric of all.

It is our understanding that the Committee for Public Administration at the Romanian Parliament will meet again in two weeks to make a final decision and to vote on all new amendments and then to send the Bill to the Romanian Parliament for a final vote in a plenary session. The new meeting is expected to take place around the 16th or 17th of April, 2013 – but the date has not yet been confirmed !!!

We are afraid that local authorities – the town halls – have (again) decided to kill as many animals as they possible can, and we all know how “euthanasia” is done in Romania, and we all know also that most public shelters are in fact DEATH CAMPS for the animals – dogs that have the misfortune to get caught and brought to such a so-called municipal shelter, rarely walk out alive again!

Mira Iordanescu had already started a petition – the signatures list will be forwarded to FPAM who will be at the Parliament. FPAM will print and present it to the Committee before the meeting.

But we definitely need a HURRICANE of EMAILS!

Please help us to avoid these new amendments from becoming reality – please sign our petition and share it with your friends and family and ask them to take action, too.

Romania’s unfortunate stray animals need us more than ever!
Please don’t let them down!
