Comments Off on SICKENING; Animal Abuser Left Puppy In A Paper Bag In Empire Damansara Carpark With Broken Legs And Mouth Taped

“I am appalled, sickend & saddened that someone could do this to such a tiny 3 month old dog. What kind of sick psycho, capable of doing such an evil thing, can manage to walk amongst us; undetected?? This poor little puppy couldn’t hurt a fly it’s so small. The bloody Empire Damansara should be willing to hand over CCTV of the car park where the dog was found! In fact, you would think they would find this such an atrocity that they would be offering any help they can; but they don’t seem to give a rats ass about it! I’m just thankful that an animal lover found this tiny pooch & took action. Please go to the Face Book page below to show your support & help catch the abomination that tortured this tiny dog!”

In the same week that news about a female dog nursing its puppies was found shot dead in Muar, Johor, in Damansara Perdana, a puppy with its legs broken and mouth taped was found in the Empire Damansara parking lot.

Luckily, the puppy was rescued by the hands of an animal lover, who posted details about the condition of the three-month-old frail animal found on June 22.

The user named Vicky Liew relayed on her Facebook how she and her friend came to find the puppy that was left in a paper bag.

The rescuers only discovered later on the puppy, a good Pomeranian breed, had lost its legs when taking it to the vet.

“This poor dog had been abused because both front legs were purposely broken by inhuman people!! Stay strong puppy!!!,” Vicky wrote.

How could anyone do this??

She then tried to hunt down the culprits who abused the puppy by reporting to the management in hopes they were able to track them down through the CCTV footage, however she reported that Empire Damansara was not being cooperative on the matter.

This is just heartbreaking!

“Write on Empire Damansara page to urge them to cooperate so the people who are working on this case can lodge a report to the Department Of Veterinary Services. Keep it viral and keep it going,” she urged the public after sharing it on Dog Lovers of Malaysia group.

FaceBook page:https://www.facebook.com/groups/dogloversmsia/

The latest updates on the rescued puppy, now named Summer, is living in a new home with loving owner Sim Kian Theng, and shows that the animal had been discharged from the hospital and is recovering well.

“She will be healing soon! I need strong mentality!!! I committed 24hrs care for her!!!,” wrote Sim.

Kudos to good Samaritans like Sim and Vicky, however thus far, no updates have been shared regarding the Empire Damansara management lodging a report against animal abusers, nor statement of them taking action on the case, as well as increasing security in their parking lots with adequate CCTV footage, despite the complaints by netizens and fellow residents.

Last year, the Malaysian government passed the Animal Welfare Act 2015 – a new comprehensive Act with fines 100 times heavier for animal abuse cases. Offenders now face a minimum fine of RM20,000 and possible jail time.

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.

ACS asks anyone who has information about the person who left the animals to contact the organization at (210) 207-4PET (4738).(Photo: KENS 5)

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).

Dog ‘tortured’ in Limerick given new home in the UK

Comments Off on Dog ‘tortured’ in Limerick given new home in the UK

“There are some evil sadistic people on this planet, that should not be able to breathe the same air as decent folk. I certainly hope they are found & get what they deserve!”

By Donal O’Regan Published 23/01/2015

A PUPPY ‘tortured’ in Limerick has found a new home in England.

The public have raised over €3,400 for George, a five-month-old Terrier, to pay for veterinary operations. He was rescued by Limerick Animal Welfare (LAW) after being thrown over a wall in Southill.

George had a broken pelvis, an untreated eye injury, both hips broken, ear tips cut off, burns to his stomach and his whiskers singed off.

LAW’s Kilfinane sanctuary manager, Marie Quirke said he had been “tortured so badly that he is terrified of people.” In the past three weeks he has been nursed back to health by LAW staff.

“George came home on Saturday from Noah Veterinary Clinic in Baldoyle where orthopaedic surgeon Billy McCartney performed an operation on both his hips to stabilise them using pins. He will need to be on strictly confined rest for four weeks to allow the healing process to work. He is on antibiotics and pain relief. Little George will need to have check-ups with John O’Dwyer, a vet in Henry Street to make sure everything is going well,” said Marie, who wished to thank Mr McCartney, all at Noah, Mr O’Dwyer and everyone who contributed to George’s veterinary care fund on their Facebook page.

“Any money over and above the cost of George’s treatment will go towards two other dogs in our care who also need expensive operations to injuries sustained in road traffic accidents,” said Marie.

After a terrible start to life for George is going to live in the lap of luxury for the rest of his days in England.

Animal lover, Coral Plunkett, got in touch with LAW.

“Having read the cruelty this little man suffered and the battle to recover which faced him I didn’t think twice. I contacted LAW and offered him a home with Matt, Connie and Hannah, also adopted from LAW.

“After speaking with Marie there was no hesitation on my part in naming him George, after St George. Unfortunately George is one of many, you could say he is one of the lucky ones.

The work undertaken by LAW is just amazing and they are totally reliant on the generosity of people, so to have raised over €3,000 for George is just fantastic. Offering your heart and your home to a rescue animal is one of the best investments you will ever make, it will be repaid with love, loyalty and commitment,” said Coral.

Graphic Media: Mercy For Animals – Ducks In Despair, Secret Video Exposes Horrific Animal Abuse at Duck Factory Farm

Comments Off on Graphic Media: Mercy For Animals – Ducks In Despair, Secret Video Exposes Horrific Animal Abuse at Duck Factory Farm

“PLEASE SIGN THE PLEDGE BELOW…THIS IS HORRIFIC!!!”

Dynamic World of Ducks

Ducks are friendly animals who prefer to spend their days swimming in lakes or ponds. At night, ducks will sleep in groups called paddlings. Cleanliness is extremely important to ducks, who will spend hours grooming and preening their feathers and keeping their nests free of waste and garbage.

A new Mercy For Animals undercover investigation at one of the largest duck factory farms in the country has exposed rampant abuse and neglect of these gentle birds.

HORRIFIC!!

An MFA investigator working at Reichardt Duck Farm in California documented:

  • Baby ducklings having the tips of their beaks burned with red-hot metal
  • Ducks suffering from illness and injuries without proper veterinary care
  • Birds trapped in or under the wire cage flooring left to slowly suffer and die
  • Ducks having their throats cut while still conscious and able to feel pain

Following the undercover investigation, MFA immediately alerted law enforcement authorities to violations of California’s anti-cruelty laws and presented them with a detailed legal complaint and meticulously compiled evidence of the violations. The evidence demonstrated an ongoing pattern of cruelty, neglect, and needless suffering.

Perhaps the worst abuse factory-farmed ducks are forced to endure is life without access to water for swimming or bathing. As waterfowl, ducks evolved to spend most of their time in ponds or lakes. In fact, ducks require pools of water to maintain proper health and to regulate their body temperatures.

At Riechardt Duck Farm and most duck factory farms, these semi-aquatic animals are forced to spend their entire lives on barren, wire mesh flooring. Since their fragile legs were not meant for standing or walking for extended periods of time, let alone their entire lives, many factory-farmed ducks develop crippling leg deformities and injuries, such as “bumble foot,” a painful inflammatory infection of the bottoms of their feet.

Without access to water, ducks become stressed and start to exhibit abnormal behaviors, such as head shaking and excessive feather preening. Unable to properly clean themselves, factory-farmed ducks often develop infections and painful eye diseases that can lead to blindness. Sadly, the first and only pool of water factory-farmed ducks will see is the electrified bath as they are hanging upside down about to have their throats cut open at the slaughterhouse.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. And you can help change it. As MFA continues to expose the unconscionable cruelties inherent in factory farming, and to diligently pursue justice by aiding prosecutions of animal abusers, consumers still hold the greatest power of all to end the needless suffering and death of farmed animals by adopting a compassionate vegan diet.

Like if you think an “Animal Abuse Register” will stop people like this from getting another dog from a shelter: FL WOMAN ACCUSED OF STARVING PIT BULL SAY’S “she’ll just adopt another”

Comments Off on Like if you think an “Animal Abuse Register” will stop people like this from getting another dog from a shelter: FL WOMAN ACCUSED OF STARVING PIT BULL SAY’S “she’ll just adopt another”

A complaint made in July to the Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control about a dog tied up out in the rain led to the arrest of Yolanda Williams of West Palm Beach on September 25, 2014, according to the Sun Sentinel. The six year old pit bull, Diamond, was found emaciated, tied up in the backyard.

TAKE A GOOD LOOK….

KEEP YOUR EYE’S OPEN FOR THIS BXXXH, IF YOU SEE HER WITH ANOTHER DOG, REPORT HER…SHE IS NOT FIT TO TAKE CARE OF JACK SHIT!!!!

Williams, 43, claims she never hurt her dog and that Diamond was just sick. According to officials, Williams moved to the area last year and Diamond proceeded to get sick, but she was not able to afford a veterinary visit. She claims to have tried to get the dog healthy but the dog just kept losing weight.

Authorities reported that Diamond’s bones were visible through her skin and the dog was constantly left outside without shelter. Diamond was removed from the property and placed in the care of Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control. According to a representative of Friends of Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control, Diamond recovered and has since been adopted out.

Though Williams said she misses Diamond and cries whenever she goes in the backyard, she stated she would just get another dog after officials took Diamond. Thankfully, she never did.” She may not have then, but how do you know she won’t get another dog, unless you visit every week??”

Williams has been charged with animal cruelty but insists she is a good person who should not be charged. Authorities reported Williams appeared to have no remorse over her sick and emaciated dog. She was released on bond.

“SHE WILL GET ANOTHER DOG, IT’S CASES LIKE THIS WHERE ANIMALS ARE ADOPTED AGAIN…ONLY TO BE ABUSED…BECAUSE THERE IS NOTHING FOR SHELTER STAFF, TO CONFIRM THE PERSON IS GENUINE; OR HAS ABUSED BEFORE!   THIS COUNTRY NEEDS AN “ANIMAL ABUSE REGISTER” JUST LIKE THE “REGISTER FOR HUMAN PEADOPHILES!!!”

Dog with chain and cinder block around her neck is found in canal

Comments Off on Dog with chain and cinder block around her neck is found in canal

By Penny Eims Dog News Examiner Subscribe Follow: September 19, 2014

Investigators in Suffolk County, New York, are trying to determine if foul play is behind the death of a dog who was found floating in a canal off of Long Island on Thursday morning, reported NECN News.

A West Islip resident made the troubling find and reached out to the local animal control for help.

Body of dog found in canalEims

The dog, described as an adult, female Rottweiler mix, had a chain and cinder block attached to her neck; a necropsy will be done to see if the dog was dead or alive when she was placed into the water.

Investigators with the Suffolk County SPCA hope to determine if the dog was intentionally drowned, or if it was an attempt for an “at sea” burial.

Aside from the disturbing items found on the dog’s body, there were no other obvious signs of trauma.

Puppy found in shopping bag with severe injuries Charlotte, a 6-month-old Maltese Shih Tzu, is in critical condition at South Shore Animal Hospital after a group of people found the dog tied up in a shopping bag on South Railroad Avenue in Bay Terrace Friday night.

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — A dog fight between a rescue group and the ASPCA is looming over the care of Charlotte the puppy who was battered, stuffed in a plastic bag and tossed near the railroad tracks in Bay Terrace.

Special Needs Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation Northeast (SNARR) is bearing its fangs by hiring an attorney to fight the ASPCA for the custody of Charlotte the 15-week-old puppy who is being treated at an undisclosed medical facility.

“SNARR met with an attorney yesterday and we are actively trying to get Charlotte back to our rescue for the remainder of her care, treatment and rehabilitation,” said a post on the SNARR Facebook Charlotte’s Place–A Journey of Hope” page.

Alsu Ivanchenko, 34, of the 3400 block of Hylan Boulevard is scheduled to appear at Stapleton Criminal Court on Monday in connection with the incident.

SNAAR maintains that since the NYPD has collected evidence and arrested a suspect “there is no need for the city to continue retaining custody of Charlotte. Unfortunately, the city and the ASPCA do not share the same opinion.”

ASPCA employees brought the dog under their care just as doctors on Staten Island prepared for her transfer to SNARR’s animal care facility based in White Plains, N.Y.

Ms. Ivanchenko made her $3,500 bail on Thursday after being  arraigned on Wednesday on one felony count of aggravated cruelty to animals and misdemeanor counts of torturing and injuring animals and abandonment.

Charlotte has a fractured skull, a fractured femur and brain trauma resulting from blunt force impact because of her ordeal. Ms. Ivancheko allegedly admitted in court documents that she couldn’t afford medical treatment for the Maltese-Shih Tzu mix, who she named Snowflake, so she put the little dog in a bag and threw the injured animal from her car onto the side of the road in Bay Terrace on Sept. 12..

Good Samaritans on the night of Sept. 12 found Charlotte clinging to life in a black plastic bag in weeds near the fence outside the Staten Island Railway tracks.

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — The next step in the legal odyssey facing the Bay Terrace woman accused of leaving a critically injured puppy for dead in a plastic bag by the train tracks takes place on Monday.

Alsu Ivanchenko, 34, of the 3400 block of Hylan Boulevard, is due to appear at Stapleton Criminal Court.

She obviously likes to look nice…but doesn’t give a shit about another sentient being who is only months old! How did that puppy sustain those injuries???? Picture by

Barring a last-minute resolution to the case — which seems extraordinarily unlikely at this juncture — prosecutors and her attorneys will have a conference with the judge and the case will be adjourned until a later date.

The court opens at 9:30 a.m., but it is not known what time her proceeding will take place.

Prosecutors charged Ms. Ivanchenko with a felony count of aggravated cruelty to animals during her arraignment on Wednesday, after she allegedly disposed of her puppy, Snowflake, in a plastic bag in the weeds near the railroad in Bay Terrace, then bought a new dog to replace the pet. She also faces two misdemeanor charges.

Snowflake continues to fight for her life with myriad injuries after good Samaritans happened upon her.

If prosecutors intend to proceed with the felony charge against her, they will present the case to a grand jury.

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — A few neighbors in the quiet Bay Terrace community said they didn’t even know Alsu Ivanchenko owned a dog, and were shocked to learn of the horrific accusations against the Russian-born woman.

And now, they don’t want anything to do with her. “I just said ‘hi and bye.’ But I don’t plan on talking to her either,” one neighbor said. “I didn’t even know she had a dog. It’s terrible, disgusting. I love animals. I can’t believe anyone would do anything like that.”

Some residents said the 34-year-old Bay Terrace resident was friendly, but didn’t know her too well. They paint a woman who’s had a rough few months after splitting with her husband, having her home go into foreclosure and now having to fight animal cruelty charges.

Ms. Ivanchenko, according to a person who is friendly with her, separated from her husband, Rusian (Russell) Ivanchenko, a few months ago, and the two had an altercation on July 4th weekend.

The husband, according to court records, has a pending criminal case in Stapleton Criminal Court. He was charged with misdemeanor counts of assault and criminal obstruction of breathing and a lesser count of harassment in connection with a July 4 incident. Ivanchenko is accused of throwing his wife to the ground, kicking her in the the ribs and choking her, according to allegations in court documents.

Ms. Ivanchenko took out a temporary order of protection against her husband, which is in effect until the case is resolved, a criminal court spokesman said.

He is due back in court Oct. 2. He lives in Brooklyn and Ms. Ivanchenko has lived at the home on Hylan Boulevard for nine years and is unemployed, the person who knew her said. The couple shares one daughter, who attends grammar school and is about 8 or 9 years old, the neighbor said.

“I feel bad for the kid,” one neighbor said. “She has a beautiful little child that’s going to suffer.”

Ms. Ivanchenko is accused of severely injuring the 3-month old Maltese Shih Tzu, Charlotte, stuffing her body in a black shopping bag and dumping it by the Bay Terrace railway Friday, police said.

A source with knowledge of the case said she told investigators a different story. Ms. Ivanchenko said she went to Florida for a few days at the end of August, and left the dog with a friend, the source said. When she came back from her trip, she noticed the puppy was acting differently, not eating and wasn’t playful.

She took the dog to Animal Health Veterinary Group in New Dorp where she was told it needs a lot more treatment, the source said. Ms. Ivanchenko paid for the office visit and then got three more opinions on the dog’s condition, but all were too expensive.

“What do you want, my daughter to starve so I can take care of my dog?” the source said Ms. Ivanchenko told police.

She was arrested Tuesday and arraigned on Wednesday evening. Her boyfriend posted the $3,500 bail and she was released early Thursday morning.

“I never really saw the dog. I know her daughter would talk about it,” said one person who knew her but wished to remain anonymous. “I recognized the dog from the pink bow on her head when I saw it online. I couldn’t believe it. I’ve seen her brushing the dog on the porch.”

Ms. Ivanchenko allegedly bought a new dog for her daughter after she disposed of Charlotte’s body Friday, police said. One witness said they saw detectives remove the new puppy from the home. The animal was surrendered to the NYPD and is in the care of ASPCA, a law enforcement source said.

Ms. Ivanchenko declined comment when reached at her home Thursday afternoon.

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — The Bay Terrace woman accused of maliciously harming and disposing of her helpless puppy later bought a new dog for her daughter, police said.

Puppy thrown out like trash after being abused!!

“She tossed Snowflake like garbage and threw [the dog] out the window, then went out and bought a new puppy,” the prosecution alleged during Alsu Ivanchenko’s arraignment in Criminal Court in Stapleton Wednesday evening. “The defendant has no remorse and no respect for that dog.”

According to the criminal complaint, Ms. Ivanchenko told police, “Just give me my misdemeanor so I can get out of here. It’s just a dog.”

Ms. Ivancheko, 34, allegedly admitted in court documents that she couldn’t afford medical treatment for the 3-month-old Maltese-Shih Tzu mix, who she named Snowflake, so she put the little dog in a bag and threw the injured animal from her car onto the side of the road in Bay Terrace on Friday. “But how did the puppy sustain those injuries??”

The dog was renamed Charlotte after being rescued Friday.

“I was afraid for my daughter to get upset, so I got her a new dog,” Ms. Ivanchenko says in the criminal complaint.

But during court proceedings Wednesday, Ms. Ivanchenko’s lawyer told the judge that the defendant denies she purchased a new puppy.

“She does feel remorse,” the defense attorney told the court.

Ms. Ivanchenko, police said, intentionally injured the animal and abandoned its body beside Bay Terrace Boulevard, at the corner of Hopkins Avenue and South Railroad Avenue.

Dr. Robert Reisman of the ASPCA said he examined Charlotte and determined she had a fractured skull, a fractured femur and brain trauma resulting from blunt force impact, according to court documents.

The prosecution asked for $20,000 bail, and said Ms. Ivanchenko is unemployed and her house is in foreclosure.

Judge Alan J. Meyer set bail at $3,500. A man who identified himself as Ms. Ivanchenko’s friend was attempting to get the cash to bail her out, but it was not clear if she made bail. He declined comment for the story. Ms. Ivanchenko’s attorney also declined comment.

She is charged with aggravated cruelty to animals, a felony, and misdemeanor counts of torturing and injuring animals and abandonment. If convicted on the top count, she faces a maximum sentence of two years in prison.

Ms. Ivanchenko is scheduled to return to court Sept. 22.

THE STORY OF CHARLOTTE

The medical team at the Animal Health Veterinary Group recognized Charlotte from previous visits after seeing a picture of the puppy wearing a pink bow that has been making the rounds on the Internet, according to a source with knowledge of the case.

Staff then contacted the NYPD and provided information about the owner and the puppy.

The owner, Alsu Ivanchenko, 34, of Bay Terrace, is scheduled to be arraigned in Stapleton Criminal Court on Wednesday on animal cruelty charges.

The pet, then called Snowflake, was brought to the animal clinic location at 2300 Hylan Boulevard in New Dorp by Ms. Ivanchenko in the mid-afternoon last Friday, the source said.

Charlotte was lying down and unable to stand or walk when seen at the clinic last Friday, the source said. Ms. Ivanchenko offered no explanation to clinic staff about what happened to Charlotte other than to say that the dog was fine before it lied down in that manner three days earlier.

The owner refused medical advice — which was either diagnostics and treatment or humane euthanasia — and left the office, according to the source.

Charlotte was found — battered and barely alive and in a black shopping bag — by Good Samaritans at about 9 p.m. on Friday.

The source added that Charlotte, currently 15 weeks old, was fine when she received her first set of puppy vaccines over the summer.

After Good Samaritans rescued Charlotte, the puppy was initially taken to South Shore Animal Hospital in New Dorp. Charlotte has since been transferred to another undisclosed hospital where she remains in critical condition — but is improving — from injuries that include skull and leg fractures.
