Couple Pleads Not Guilty to 17 Counts of Animal Abuse – Not First Run In With Animal Control

Comments Off on Couple Pleads Not Guilty to 17 Counts of Animal Abuse – Not First Run In With Animal Control

“If you love your pets, you don’t clear off on holiday & leave the poor things alone! If they don’t get a serious sentence & all the dogs taken from them, they will carry on abusing!! Laws have to change to stop this type of thing happening again…an Animal Abuse Registry could stop repeat offenders etc.”

An Exeter couple appeared in court Wednesday facing 17 counts of animal abuse.

Accused of 17 Counts Of Animal Abuse & Neglect – Kathleen and Donald Perkins

Police say the couple went on a two-week vacation, leaving their dogs locked up at home, alone, without enough food or water. This is not the first run-in the pair have had with animal control.

Both Kathleen and Donald Perkins plead not guilty in court, accused of the 17 counts of abuse and neglect.  The Perkins’ operate Celie Kennels out of their Ten Rod Road home, breeding golden retrievers for over a decade, according to their website.

Last week, 10 golden retrievers, six papillons, and one cat were removed from the Exeter home after State Police received a call from a concerned neighbor. Animal Control responded and found the dogs in “unsafe” conditions.

“The dogs were in crates barely big enough for them, standing in urine and feces. Their paws were raw and they had little or no water,” said Sgt. David Bassignani of the Rhode Island State Police.

All the dogs and the cat are being housed at several shelters across the state and will remain there until the judge rules on the case. Several neighbors of the Perkins’ have contacted animal control in the past.

“We have in the past had calls made by concerned citizens about the living conditions of the animals,” said Dr. E. J. Finocchio, Director of the RISPCA. The pair are due back in court on January 13th.

Puppies dumped in a box outside San Antonio ACS, investigators need help

Comments Off on Puppies dumped in a box outside San Antonio ACS, investigators need help

“Somebody must know who these puppies belong to, imagine if they had died from the cold; could you live with that on your conscience? If they have done it once, they will do it again…please help find those born without a heart & make them pay! Everybody knows there are charity’s that will take your dogs if you can’t care for them. To simply leave them in a box outside a shelter isn’t good enough, they could have died due to weather conditions; it’s just a cowardly way out, for someone who doesn’t give a SxxT about living sentient beings…& it makes me so fxxxxxg mad!!

SAN ANTONIO, TexasAnimal cruelty investigators are asking for the public’s help to find the person responsible for dumping puppies outside Animal Care Services.

Friday morning, a veterinary technician discovered the puppies in a cardboard box with a plastic bag tied around it. ACS named them the seven dwarfs after the Snow White fairytale.

“Leaving them outside, unattended, and nobody is around. And the weather conditions are bad where they could potentially die,” said Audra Houghton, ACS field operation supervisor.

In 2014, ACS issued more than 5,000 citations for animal cruelty and sent 42 cases to the district attorney‘s office. Animal cruelty investigators said San Antonio can do better. They said it comes down to public education.

“That’s probably what the biggest issue is. We have owners who can’t necessarily afford to care for their pets and don’t think they can afford to. Those are all things that can be remedied. So our officers try very hard to educate the public,” said Houghton

Abandoning animals is considered a misdemeanor with a four thousand dollar fine and up to a year in jail. The puppies appear to be two-month old Spaniel blends. ACS says the puppies are not old enough to be adopted yet. ACS asks anyone who has information about the person who left the animals to contact the organization at (210) 207-4PET (4738).

Essex Horse Sanctuary ‘inundated’ with abandoned animals

Comments Off on Essex Horse Sanctuary ‘inundated’ with abandoned animals

“Where I live there are many travellers horses grazing at the side of the road! I fear for their safety & that of the people travelling past in cars that may not see them until it’s too late. In previous years, before being in wheelchair, I have had to go round-up loose horses & wait whilst police try to find the owners; but without the horses being chipped the police have no idea who they belong to! So we have just had to move them away from the road & hope the travellers or owners will see to them.

An Essexhorse sanctuary has said it has been “inundated” with animals that are being dumped in fields to “fly-graze” without the permission of landowners.

Remus Memorial Horse Sanctuary, near Ingatestone, has had to turn away horses and said the recent floods have made conditions worse for abandoned animals.

The RSPCA said most of the horses are not micro-chipped so the owners cannot be traced.

The government has said it is looking for ways to tighten laws to stop horses being deserted.

2 Dogs Found Abandoned In Home Covered In Glue And Paint

Comments Off on 2 Dogs Found Abandoned In Home Covered In Glue And Paint

“WTF…thought I had seen it all; it appears not! Evil, sadistic animal abusing bxxxxxd’s will always walk amongst us, committing their heinous cruel animal attacks; because they are sick POS that know they can get away with it! If caught, they know they will only receive a petty punishment; which will not deter them from abusing again!! ANIMAL WELFARE & ABUSE LAWS MUST BECOME STRICTER WITH MORE SEVERE CONSEQUENCES FOR THOSE THAT ABUSE; I would like to think that harsher punishments, would at the very least, scare first time or younger offenders, enough to hopefully stop them from abusing animals ever again!!”

NASHVILLE, Tenn. –

Animal control officers are investigating after two small dogs were found covered with blue plumber’s glue and left for dead in Nashville. 

This is downright Animal Abuse; those who did this need locking up!!

The female Chihuahuas were found Wednesday by the landlord of an abandoned home on 10th Avenue North.

The dogs had been painted all over with the glue, which eventually hardened and left the animals helpless.

Dottie Dively, the staff veterinarian at Metro Animal Control, said it could be weeks before all the glue comes off.

“We have been successful in shaving some of it,” Dively said. “We may have to shave some more under sedation.”

Divey added since being found, the dogs have been named Sapphire and Opal.

“It fits, because they truly are gems and they will be beautiful again,” she said.

Cruelty investigator Billy Biggs wasn’t shy in expressing how badly he’d like to catch those responsible.

“You go from being sad to being mad,” said Biggs. “There’s no reason to do this to an animal.”

Investigators say it’s possible it was juveniles who committed the crime.

Those responsible could face a charge of aggravated animal cruelty, which is a felony.

It will be at least four to six weeks before the dogs will be available for adoption.
