” I received this via email & wanted to share. This is horrific, why are these Countries being allowed to kill these animals in this way?? I can’t give a lot but £1 is better than nothing & a lot of £1 will add up & hopefully get this advert on the TV; to stop this heinous illegal type of slaughtering! I also found an unlisted video on youtube that I think everybody should be allowed to see! Graphic TV AD, Plus Graphic video at the end of this page FILMED BY A VET ON AN EXPORT SHIP 

                Change his fate. Help expose live export sledgehammering on tv.

                Sold. Exported & SLEDGE-HAMMERED TO DEATH

It’s been 6 days since we exposed the brutal reality of live export to Vietnam: terrified animals having their skulls smashed with sledgehammers.

Still, the trade continues.

That means young calves like him will grow up to risk the very same horror: sledgehammered to death in a filthy slaughterhouse. The ‘lucky ones’ die quickly. The unlucky ones feel everything — blow after agonising blow.

PLEASE CLICK HERE TO SEE OUR NEW TV AD – VERY GRAPHIC MEDIA » https://secure.animalsaustralia.org/tv/live-export-2016/?r=576c065f3a6771466697311&ua_s=e-mail

(VERY GRAPHIC… VIEWER DISCRETION ADVISED; AT THE END OF THIS PAGE  – Watch a video TAKEN ON-BOARD AN EXPORT SHIP BY A VET, after it was uploaded she lost her job!!!!).

These animals’ harrowing stories are sending shockwaves around the world. Our investigation made headlines in 34 countries. Our Prime Minister expressed his ‘shock’ and ‘disgust’. But it wasn’t followed by any meaningful action.

10 days out from an election and the last thing political leaders want is for their complicity in animal abuse to be thrown into the spotlight. With your help, that’s exactly what we’re about to do.

We urgently need to send a message to decision-makers that their promises and platitudes aren’t good enough. That for every animal who suffers for this industry, for every day a terrified steer is at risk of brutal sledgehammering — we will keep fighting for them.

Please help us disrupt the election campaign with an emergency broadcast for animals.

We have just 48 hours to secure pre-election air time. Can you help us reach our goal? We don’t just have our sights set on TV — with your help we will target politicians when they read their news online, too.

For too long the odds have been stacked against animals, but right now we have a rare opportunity to hit the live export industry where it hurts. Help us seize it.

Even a small donation today can make a difference.

In whatever way you choose to help animals, thank you.

It’s not the first time Animals Australia investigators have exposed the horrific practice of sledgehammering animals to death in the live export trade. After 12 months, terrified animals are still having their skulls smashed on a nightly basis. Nothing Barnaby Joyce (the Agriculture Minister) has done to date will stop this horror continuing.

With just 9 days until the election, we need your urgent support to disrupt the election campaign with an emergency broadcast for animals. Help us get this online and on TV.

“Barnaby knew about this for years. [WARNING: GRAPHIC]”

Published on 19 Jun 2016 Animals Australia

Australia’s Federal Agriculture Minister, Barnaby Joyce, has known for YEARS about sledgehammering in Vietnam. In that time, his Department has green-lit shiploads of animals to the region. In light of Animals Australia’s recent investigation exposing brutal sledgehammering yet again in Vietnam, he still refuses to suspend trade — putting more animals at risk of horrific cruelty. Tell the Minister what you think of the fact that NOTHING he’s done to date has prevented this extreme abuse from continuing: https://www.facebook.com/BarnabyJoyceMP/

Graphic Videos: Yet More Egypt Cruelty Footage Emerges

Comments Off on Graphic Videos: Yet More Egypt Cruelty Footage Emerges

“OMG…This has got to be at the top of the pile when it comes to cruelty in abattoirs,  This is torture for animals in a living hell; at its worst. I can’t believe this is still being allowed to happen. The only way we can help to stop this is by sharing, making the public aware of the atrocities going on. We must get people signing the Animals Australia Ban on Live Export petition! Help the Australian people understand what is happening & that some in their government are happy for it to continue.

“Voting happens in September, people need to know the truth, the full horror of the export trade; before they cast they vote. We have to rise up, voice our disgust & demand better welfare for these animals; if we don’t who will? This Torture can not be allowed to carry on..PERIOD!! So please share, cross-post etc. If you get an error message when clicking on my link, don’t worry, it’s not spam, it is an error, Facebook have been informed of it! “

“I’m describing the video so that you really are aware of what you’re about to see, should you choose to press play. The first video is horrific, the steers are put in a machine that turns them upside down, then their throats are slit. As they tumble out of the contraption, they stand, their sliced throats flap around as they look for escape! But the second video is the worst. Jacob, a lone steer is repeatedly stabbed with a knife into his eyes, his tendons are slashed repeatedly until he goes down…then his final minutes of torture end with his throat once again being repeatedly slashed. How the fuck is this possible; do their lives really mean so little, that their owners & governments are prepared to stand by; & do nothing??

Further shocking evidence has surfaced of Australian cattle being abused in an Egyptian abattoir.

The footage reveals conscious animals walking around with gaping throat cuts in an Egyptian abattoir that has been hailed by industry as ‘state-of-the-art’.

Once more, this reinforces the cruel nature of un-stunned slaughter. Yet inconceivably, Labor, the Coalition and the live export industry have all rejected calls for mandatory stunning of animals in the live trade.

Just over a week ago, evidence provided by Animals Australia of cruelty to Australian cattle in Egypt sparked a government investigation. This latest evidence was brought to Animals Australia’s attention this week and immediately provided to the Department of Agriculture.

Once again, the industry’s mantra of needing to stay in a market to improve welfare has been exposed for what it is: PR spin designed to maintain producer and government support.

Sadly, farmers have again been deceived by the very industry bodies that purport to represent them. They are being told that their animals are well cared for overseas, only to consistently find out otherwise.

The sky won’t fall in if live export ends. Most Australian farmers don’t live export and those who do can be assisted to transition away from the trade — a move that would be better for them and better for animals.

Shocking live export cruelty in Egypt – Sokhna Viewer Discretion Advised

Published on 6 May 2013

TAKE ACTION NOW: http://www.BanLiveExport.com/egypt

Animals Australia’s latest live export investigation revealed terrified animals making desperate efforts to escape after having their throats cut open; others with eyes stabbed; leg tendons slashed; and being butchered while still alive… This is the nightmare endured by animals who were exported live from Australia to Egypt.

Shocking live export cruelty in Egypt – Ismailia Viewer Discretion Strongly Advised

Published on 6 May 2013

Shocking cruelty captured in Egypt’s Ismailia abattoir shows an injured Australian steer stabbed in the eyes, and disabled by having his leg tendons slashed.

HELP END THIS CRUELTY:http://www.BanLiveExport.com/egypt

“The following are “excerpts” from an article in the Tasmanian Times. Please read & do what is necessary to get this torture stopped.”

Iin the House of Representatives, Independent Member for Denison Andrew Wilkie courageously stood up in Parliament with this picture of ‘Jacob’ and demanded some answers from Prime Minister Gillard, who could only reiterate that the government’s system is ‘working’. Andrew’s questioning of the government can be seen here, as well as the totally predictable and fatuous response of the Prime Minister claiming that this evil, disgraceful trade in wretched animal misery and suffering has a ‘social licence’.

The Steer is named Jacob; he is the victim in the second video above

Some things are so obscene, and so depraved, that nothing can ever justify them, and the live animal export trade is absolutely one of those things.

Be careful what you wish for when you cast your vote at the September Federal election. A vote for the coalition will see even more support for the gross animal abuse seen throughout Animals Australia’s 19 investigations. Tony Abbott says ‘one of his first jobs will be to apologise to the Indonesians for the ‘catastrophic’ ban on the cattle trade’ there following the exposure of similar torture of our cattle shown on the ‘Four Corners’ program’A Bloody Business’  in May 2011. In this, the Gillard government and the Abbott coalition are as one.

Will Abbott and his sycophants also want to apologise to Egypt? Bahrain? Kuwait? Pakistan? Malaysia? And all the other countries to which Australia happily sends millions of innocent, gentle animals to be so heinously abused? Tony Abbott wants to make the all-but-meaningless ESCAS ‘more exporter friendly’, if that is indeed possible.

Jacob, the Australian bull filmed at an Egyptian slaughterhouse last month, spent his last horrific many minutes of life having his eyes stabbed and his leg tendons slashed. He had been forced into an appallingly cruel slaughter box, from which, in panic, he escaped, trying to run on three legs because one was already broken. His throat had been slashed and he ran with his head almost hanging off. Jacob was a gentle, Western Australian Brahman bull, who had done nothing wrong. He spent weeks on a Third World live export ship on his way to Egypt before facing this ultimate horror and depravity.

The evidence of the abuse first came from a courageous Egyptian veterinarian, Dr Abdelwahab, a man with seven years experience in Egyptian abattoirs. He expressed to Animals Australia that animal cruelty in Egypt is rife and that neither abattoir management nor on-site veterinarians intervene to stop cruel treatment. He said ‘this action happened yesterday, today, and it will happen tomorrow’. He described the facilities, claimed to be ‘state of the art’ by the Australian government and exporters, detailing the slaughterbox used there which turns the terrified animals upside down, often crushing their ribs and pelvises in the process. 

So please demand that your current Federal MPs and Senators do whatever it takes to bring down this trade. But also take it up with coalition candidates as well, because their agenda is to EXPAND this morally bankrupt industry. Don’t be fooled by the argument that if Australia withdraws from the trade the animal abuse will be even worse, because if millions of Australian animals are nor put on the rotten old ships, that is millions of animals saved – and that many less animals subjected to this horriific and systemic torture. No other countries can supply the volume of animals Australia does.

Don’t buy the argument that the ‘cattle in the north are starving;’ either. If these people have bred thousands of animals for this trade which is going nowhere if the Australian people are heard by their government, then they are obligated to feed and care for them. If they don’t, they should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law as anyone else would be. Their failure to respond to market forces is their fault and no-one else’s, and there is no more subsidised and privileged sector in the community than the ever-complaining farmers.

Most importantly, make your vote count.Suzanne Cass. http://www.liveexportshame.comhttp://www.stoptac.org Stop Tasmanian Animal Cruelty PO Box 252 BRIDGEWATER TAS 7030http://www.stoptac.org http://www.liveexportshame.comWatch The Debate: Andrew Wilkie Questions The Prime Minister On Live Export

Graphic Video of Horse Slaughter In Russia Goes Viral: Leads To Face Book Event & Petition

Comments Off on Graphic Video of Horse Slaughter In Russia Goes Viral: Leads To Face Book Event & Petition

“My sincere apologies, this should have been posted several days ago, when I first learnt about it; but as usual, pain stopped me from completing it on time. Some of you have probably heard of this brutal video doing the rounds on the internet, some may have even tried to watch the graphic video! However, I’m posting this to achieve more signatures for the petition & to invite people to join the Face Book Event; written & posted by Julie Jo on Facebook.” 

“With regard to Face Book Events, some people may misunderstand the actual meaning & think they have to attend the event in person! True, some FB Events are arranged to hold meetings or protests etc. for people who live local to that event area. But the majority of Events, are simply invites, from FB friends, (in this case Julie) to promote such things as petition signing & emailing pre-written letters; all of which are usually to be sent or completed by a certain date! That’s what this Event invite is about;  signing petitions & sending a pre-written letter to the email addresses provided!!”

“Here is one of the first actual news post’s that I have seen regarding the video, of which the links to the petition & video are provided within, but I will post separately to ensure they are seen.”

After a video showing violent killing of horses in a Russian slaughterhouse was posted to YouTube last month, an online petition has been launched to ask for stopping the cruelty.

Warning: Extremely Graphic Video content. Viewer’s discretion strongly advised. Please Do Not watch the video if you are sensitive to scenes of violence or torture.

The video, posted on February 26, bears the title “Russian Race Horses Brutally Slaughtered for Sausage” and comes with the warning of having very graphic content. The video description reads: “The world needs to see the extreme brutality horses are suffering in Russia.” Horses in the video are shown hammered on their heads repeatedly with sledgehammers inside the slaughterhouse as they drag themselves about the place.

“This is the most inhuman act I have ever witnessed,” reads the petition letter on Change.org, addressed to the Delegation of the European Union to Russia. “Every horse slaughterhouse I’ve seen has been violently abusive and this is beyond comprehension.”

The petition has received close to 9800 signatures to date and aims at getting over 10, 000 more to reach its goal of 20, 000 signatures in support of the cause.Earlier this month, Seattle Pi published a story about animal rights advocates’ condemnation of the recent legislature in Oklahoma that would allow the slaughter of horses for human consumption.

As noted by the Activist Post, producing horse meat has legally remained banned in the US since 2007, though early this month it was reported that USDA was set to allow horse slaughter in the US, starting with a New Mexico horse slaughterhouse in the next few months.

“There isn’t much known about the video location, or the date the it was taken, only that it was taken somewhere in a Russia. When long time animal advocate, Julie Jo saw the video, she immediately decided to make a petition; due to the horrific & brutal content. Where ever this slaughter-house is in Russia, something has to be done & fast…hence the petition & FB Event. Horses have always been a part of my life, so I knew it wouldn’t be easy to watch the video…it took me several attempts, to actually look at the screen, the audio was bad enough. Now, having seen & spilled many tears over it, I have to say, it is the most brutal, savage, gruesome & most distressing video, of horse slaughter I have ever seen; it quite simply can’t & shouldn’t be allowed to carry on, in a civilised society!!”

“Therefore this video has to be exposed, people must be educated & made aware of the horrific & Neanderthal techniques used to stun & kill horses. For those who can’t watch the video, of which I suspect there are many, I will try to explain the content, which is still very distressing to read. But the only way to get this stopped; is by getting the right peoples attention. So please, will you help by signing the petitions & emailing the letter below.”

“The quality of the video isn’t very good (which I’m thankful for) this could suggest, the video may have been taken several years ago; it is also very noisy. One can see several horses, in a concrete building, some stood around waiting to be slaughtered, others already down & bleeding out. Other horses not yet unconscious or down, are trying to get back up, yet slipping in all directions; due to the blood soaked floor of their fellow equines. Men wait with sledgehammers or axes (turned to use the wooden part of the head) for the next horses to be walked in. There are horses waiting near what looks like a gated area, who are in full view of what is happening! There appears to be no order or process to the system, nobody is wearing aprons, gloves or the usual attire associated with a legal slaughter-house; this could mean this is not a legitimate slaughter-plant.”

“The bewildered & frightened horses, are each lead to one of the heartless bastards, who with little thought or aim, uses brute force to smash the sledgehammer or axe into the horse’s head. There is no skilled technique, nor restraints used, to hold the horse’s head still. Horses being flight animals, constantly shift position, trying to escape the blow’s of the hammer. One of the horses with a rope around its neck, is wrapped around a post & pulled tight, the horse can be heard gasping as the rope around his neck gets tighter, he can’t move as freely now, so another aim is taken. Few go down with the first poorly aimed blow, which results in the dazed & confused horses, trying to take flight again. They try in vain to stand, only to be repeatedly bludgeoned about the head, until they go down. The second they are down, their throats are slit; meaning they could still be fully conscious, when bled out!”

SAMPLE LETTER:

SUBJECT: Your Assistance Is Needed

To Whom It May Concern:

There is a video which has gone viral across the world of horses being slammed in the head with hammers. It comes from a film taken at a horse slaughterhouse in Russia. People concerned with animal welfare have seen this and a team of international animal activists will make sure everyone else does too. There is no law in Russia about the status of animals and we are requesting that you adopt such a law on the domestic, farm and wild animals.

These violent attacks on animals is beyond cruelty. This you cannot deny.

Here in this video link you will see the torture these horses endure:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=K55sIk-c5Hk

I believe after witnessing the acts for yourself you find it within your power to bring an immediate halt to such vicious actions.

Sincerely

(YOUR NAME)

“I wrote to World Horse Welfare regards the video & received the following reply; please note: the above letter has already incorporated the website addresses from the link below (so please don’t include them again)”

Dear Jules,

Many thanks for taking the time to get in touch with us about this.  We are absolutely disgusted by the terrible abuse shown in this footage and deplore such abhorrent treatment.

People who know and love horses are especially aware of what sensitive, social and intelligent creatures they are, which makes the appalling actions shown in this clip all the more reprehensible.

We are getting in touch with our contacts in Russia to make them aware of the practices reported to be taking place in slaughterhouses there and ask for improvements.

We would strongly encourage you to also contact an animal welfare society which is based in Russia and approved by the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA).

The following link will take you to the contact details of a list of such societies: http://www.wspa.org.uk/members/findmember/MemberSocietyForCountry.aspx?country=Russia&country_go.x=3&country_go.y=4

I hope the above information is helpful for you and thank you again for taking the time to contact us about it.

Best regards,

Jamie Walker

VERY GRAPHIC IMAGES,VIDEO:Exposed: How terrified horses were beaten and abused by sick slaughtermen

Comments Off on VERY GRAPHIC IMAGES,VIDEO:Exposed: How terrified horses were beaten and abused by sick slaughtermen

“As a horse owner I don’t think I have to say much; this is very distressing for me to post! However, people need to know, believe me, I’m writing this through tears…but the public have to know what happens in these horrific kill places. I have said before & will say again, if captive bolt guns are used, they are inadequate at making equine’s unconscious  The bolt gun was meant for & is used for bovine’s…a horses skull & brain is set further back; therefore the bolt gun does not have the same effect it does on bovine’s..which means the horse regains consciousness very quickly.!”

“It is also not just the old, sick retired that end up at these evil places…kill buyers look for horses that are healthy & have a good weight on them, those are the horses they get most money per pound for! In all my years of owning horses I have never once sent or let any of my horses go to an auction house; because that is where kill buyers lurk. Being disabled from a riding accident obviously means I can’t ride, & lately not even see my horses, due to pain (they are well cared for & spoilt at a livery yard). But hell will freeze over before I let them go to auction…if you truly love your horse or any animal, you don’t let them go to places like this! When the time comes that my horse has to go, I will move mountains & get there somehow! My face will be the last thing she see’s, my voice the last thing she hears; before crossing Rainbow Bridge!”

One horrific image shows a distressed horse come round from being stunned only to find itself hanged upside down ready to be bled

horse wakes up after being stunned

Two slaughtermen have been sacked after shocking footage exposed horses being abused at an abattoir.

The video nasty caught by hidden cameras shows the animals being beaten with a metal rod and crammed into pens together before being slaughtered.

One horrific image shows a distressed horse appearing to come round from being stunned only to find itself hanged upside down ready to be bled.

Ex-Chief Veterinary Officer Keith Meldrum described it as “completely unacceptable.”

The cruelty was filmed at Red Lion Abattoir, near Nantwich, Cheshire, during a Sky News investigation prompted by concerns raised by animal welfare campaign group Hillside.

Some horses were crammed into slaughter pens in pairs and at one point in a group of three before being stunned together.

Experts said this was against the law.

Hanging on: Horse tries to wriggle free

Under The Welfare of Animals Act 1995, horses cannot be slaughtered in sight of any other horse because it causes them severe distress.

Separately, some injured or sick horses appeared to be left by staff to suffer overnight, rather than being put down immediately.

Last night the Food Standards Agency said it revoked the licences of two slaughtermen after a probe into the video.

FSA head of approvals Craig Kirby said: “As soon as we got the footage and reviewed it we took immediate action to revoke the slaughtermen’s licences.

“That means they cannot work to slaughter animals again. “We will also look to gather further evidence to see if we can prosecute.”

Mr Meldrum yesterday described his shock at what he described as “appalling” animal welfare breaches. He said: “We see three animals stunned at the same time and it is totally illegal and contrary to welfare slaughter regulations.

It’s a significant welfare problem for a number of reasons. It’s harder to render them unconscious in a group and they have a higher chance of regaining consciousness before you’ve completed the procedure.”

The number of horses being slaughtered in the UK has more than doubled in the past five years. FSA figures show 8,426 were put down in 2012, compared to 3,859 in 2007. Horses are sent to the abattoir when they are old, sick, injured or retired.

The shocking footage, to be shown on Sky News today, comes just days after it emerged horse meat had been found in beefburgers being sold across the UK.

Roly Owers, head of World Horse Welfare, said: “The breaches, from what we’ve seen, are throughout – from the care of the animals to the slaughter process.

“Horses are intelligent animals. When they see an animal stunned in front of them, you can only imagine the distress that animal is going through. “There are, without doubt, welfare issues here. It is plain illegal.”

John Watson, of Hillside, said: “It blows away the myth of humane slaughter. There is a misery in that place that is palpable.”

In response, a Red Lion spokesman said: “The incidents, whilst captured on limited filming are not the norm but that of an isolated nature.

“The management view animal welfare and public health with paramount importance.

“Decisive disciplinary action has been taken.”

Every year, tens of thousands of American horses are killed for their flesh. Worse still, they are forced to endure journeys of hundreds of miles in cramped trucks—often in extreme weather without food or a drop of water—before reaching slaughterhouses in Canada and Mexico.

Very Graphic Images & Video: Tidus A Dog Burnt Alive By Teenagers, Fights For His Life

Comments Off on Very Graphic Images & Video: Tidus A Dog Burnt Alive By Teenagers, Fights For His Life

“OH MY DEAR GOD…I have never seen a dog in such critical condition with burns who has survived. But I have faith in Viktor & the vet team.  Other dogs on the brink of death have been brought back to beautiful lives by the Lets Adopt Team. Please, donate even if it’s only a dollar, every penny count’s….more importantly please pray; that sweet boy has the strength & will to live. It will be a long battle, but I know they will do everything they can for Tidus.

“The heartless bastards (sorry, but I’m so angry) that did this…well, I don’t hold out much luck for catching them; but if they do, there will be a queue of people waiting to have a few words etc. with them!!”

Tidus: a dog burned alive by teenage criminals fights for his life

Tidus playing in the park

His name is Tidus, and what happened to him, could happened to your dog…

Two weeks ago, Tidus was happily playing in the park with his owner, a normal evening walk/play socializing with other dogs… All of a sudden, Tidus was nowhere to be seen.

His owner looked everywhere for him. He was wearing his collar, tag with telephone number, microchip, surely if he was lost he would be found and returned to her… Minutes passed, one hour and there was no trace of Tidus. The park and every adjacent street are combed. There was no trace.

Someone says he has seen a group of youngsters walking towards a solitary part of town walking with a tail wagging dog.

Tidus was found three hours later, and nothing could prepare it’s owner for what she was about to find.

There he was, tied to a fence, she called him but he doesn’t come, he twists and whimpers in agony.

Tidus had been burned alive. Someone dozed him in alcohol and set him alight.

Judging by the extent and depth of the burns, for a time that must have seemed like an eternity Tidus was transformed into a ball of fire. 75% of his body presents third degree burns, both the epidermis and dermis have been consumed by the fire.

The brutal attack happened two weeks ago. During this time, the impoverished owner tried to reach out for assistance, but no one helped. The offers of help she received never materialized, some people sent her gaze, others towels, serum, gave her suggestions on how to tend the wounds herself, but no one offered help to take the dog to a vet.

Two weeks… two weeks living as walking burnt skeleton, in excruciating agony, barely able to eat, every single move hurts… no treatment.

Tidus has lived in hell for two weeks, but the wait is over now.. Yesterday night we heard about his plea and immediately took action. It was late at night when he arrived to our clinic, the stench of rotten flesh engulfed the room instantly.

Tidus is now on intensive care. He is receiving IV, painkillers, anti-inflammatory medication and antibiotics. We must bring the pain down to manageable levels, keep him hydrated, and stop the spread of infection before starting work on how to get his skin back naturally or through skin grafts. But for now, the challenge is to stabilize him and keep him alive.

This morning Tidus received a blood transfusion from one of my own dogs…

Tomorrow we will start the painful process of cutting the dead skin, cleaning the area and carefully treating the burns section by section. The healing process will take months.

Tidus has been burnt alive.. Read his story here:http://blog.myletsadopt.com/2012/11/27/tidus-a-dog-burnt-alive-by-teenage-cri…

We are Tidus last hope. His last chance, his last shot at life. After us, there is nothing but pain and death for this little brave dog.

Please help us offer him a second chance. Help him prove the world that he is a big and strong brave dog. He has survived two weeks with little to no care.. We must help him. I cannot think of more worthy cause today …

Please, if you can, contribute to Tidus Chipin today.. we are his only chance: the link is below

Update November 28

Today it has been an incredible day for Tidus. We would go as far as saying that this has been the first day since those criminals burned him alive that he experienced something similar to peace and comfort.

Tidus burnt alive by kids

Right now our priorities are to strengthen his immune system so that we can avoid widespread infection. We are using antibiotics and painkillers and their effect has given Tidus the first few hours of deep sleep in a very very long time.

Tidus condition, however, remains critical. His blood levels are horrible and although he is fighting infection as hard as he can it’s too early for us to say that he’s out of danger. Once he’ll be totally stable and on the way to recovery we will start looking into the best possible option to treat and repair his burned skin. For now Tidus is being treated with a special cream, honey-based, that works wonders for burn patients…

Tidus, the dog set on fire by some criminals receives its cure at our clinic

Some of you ask me, is he in pain? Wouldn’t be better to gently put him to sleep? The answer is yes, he is in pain, now, but he won’t be in pain in the future, and would it be better to kill him? Better for whom? For Tidus? No. He wants to live, he’s eating, he’s fighting, he’s someone that has seen a crime committed upon him and he needs help, not a needle in vein.

We are a rescue group, we rescue, we treat, we heal… killing is far too easy, doesn’t even require much thinking or skill. Everyone could kill Tidus, that’s easy… not everyone can cure him…  That’s what Let’s Adopt Global stands for…

This is Tidus Chipin. We are humbled by the generosity of animal lovers from around the world and can only thank you, from the bottom of our hearts for the incredible support you are giving him. Please, if you can and wish, Chipin for Tidus today… his recovery will be long, slow and painful, he will need all support we can give him…

Investigators Looking To Find Those Responsible For Dog Found Buried Shot & Buried Allive

Comments Off on Investigators Looking To Find Those Responsible For Dog Found Buried Shot & Buried Allive

“Come on friends, if you think you have any information no matter how irrelative you think it might be, please contact the number below. This is a particularly nasty & violent crime, somebody wanted that poor dog to die a slow miserable death, anyone that can do that to a dog is a danger to society in general; evil bxxxxxd’s…watch video’s below!”

Animal Services in Hillsborough County, Florida are asking for the community’s help to find the person responsible for committing a horrible crime to a 2-year-old pit bull mix breed. The dog, who investigators have named Phoebe, was found buried up to her neck in sand and shot twice. It’s a miracle that she is alive.

On October 29th the Hillsborough Sheriff’s Office received an anonymous call reporting shots fired at a vacant home.

Deputies arrived on the scene to find Phoebe buried alive in the backyard. Phoebe was rescued with the help of Animal Services officers. “What they saw was a dog, her head protruding from the ground still alive,” said Animal Services investigation manager Pam Perry. “The dog was whimpering. It appeared from the area in the backyard. There were blood trail. There was also blood coming from the dog’s head.”

Phoebe was brought to the emergency vet where she spent a week recovering. She not only had her gun shot wounds to recover from, but she weighed only 30 pounds. “It’s a miracle that this dog is even alive,” said Perry. Phoebe has survived and is putting weight on, but she will still need some time to completely recover from her injuries. Once she is recovered she will be looking for a good home.

Investigators are appealing to the community to please come forward with any information that they may have about this incident. The only lead they have received so far is from a neighbour who has seen teenagers hanging out at the vacant home. “Anyone please, please come forward. You can remain anonymous,” said Perry. If you have information you are asked to call Hillsborough Animal Services at (813) 744-5660.
