Video:Dog Being Abandoned On Road

Comments Off on Video:Dog Being Abandoned On Road

(VIDEO – POSTED ON FACE BOOK & TWITTER – IN CASE THE LINK DOESN’T WORK)

“I found this video on-line, but aside from the date I don’t know anything else. However, Google translated the page from Portuguese to English, so I suppose it could be in Portugal; or it could be that someone from Portugal just reposted it! 

” On Sept. 29, on a dark night, one car is following another, when the car in front starts to break, the following car slows down too; however, the car following has a dash cam on board & captures the whole upsetting scene. The car in front slow’s to a stop, someone gets out with a dog…then precedes to drive off without the dog!!!”

“How utterly F-ing heartbreaking; not ashamed to say I cried. Firstly, if they didn’t want the dog, why not take the dog to a shelter etc.? Secondly, abandoning a dog on a  road (actually looks like a small town, there are houses either side for a short distance) is utterly stupid…obviously the owner had no heart & no brain.

You would think the driver of the car with the dash cam, that caught the distressing scene, would do something, wouldn’t you?  My instinct would have been to get the dog off the road & speed off to catch the car’s registration in front; then go to the police & show them the video…Sadly that’s not what happens?

See for yourself…the video doesn’t need a ‘viewer discretion’ warning…but you may need some tissues..hold & click link below, I  will also post separately to face book & Twitter, just in case some can’t access the video via the link (sorry I couldn’t attach it either).

There are some real f-ing shits that live in this world, no compassion or conscience they care about nothing & know one, except themselves, their cars, their possessions etc.” 

“I would rather live in a f-ing shed with my animals & have a heart bursting  full of compassion, empathy & love for all sentient beings; than anything else in the world, thank you! 

“Nothing justifies abandoning an animal to fend for itself; absolutely nothing & no excuses for doing so either!”

However, I am showing it in case anyone recognises the car or the dog. Has a neighbour, who’s dog that looks like the one on the video; i.e. a German Shepherd mix, vanished? Perhaps someone may note the place where it happened, if so, could be that the dog is in the towns animal shelter or that some kind soul offered it a home…I just want to know it’s ok!!

“Which ever is the case, I have been praying very hard that the dog is ok; it would be amazing if someone could tell us how & where the dog is!. The thought of it being hit by a car & laying in a ditch, or starving to death, is just too much to bear; so I’m trying to remain positive…I’m also praying that the car following actually caught up with the car who ditched the dog & got his licence plate for the police! “

Let’s Adopt Global – Saving Samson The Kitten With Severe Eye Problems

Comments Off on Let’s Adopt Global – Saving Samson The Kitten With Severe Eye Problems

“I don’t know what happened to this little guy but he sure is a fighter, I’m sending loving prayers so that his pain ends soon; & he can live as a cat should. I know Victor & all at Lets Adopt global will do all they can for him.  Losing both eye’s will be very traumatic for little Samson, but I’m sure he will manage!”

“I have a dog with no eyes, both taken out within a week…nobody even notices he has no eyes…as long as furniture in the home is not moved, he can get around with my other dogs; who have bells on, so he knows where they are at all times.”

If you are reading this you are likely to be an animal rescuer, or least to like animals beyond what the general public finds “normal”.

 

If you are reading this you are also likely to spot an animal in trouble when others just see nothing.

I’ve named him Samson and I must admit I nearly missed this little man... just by looking at these pictures you will understand why.

I found him in exactly the same place where I found Monkey about already three months ago. He was stumbling on the side, right next to the garbage container. At first from the car, I thought he may been a rat or a mouse, it was dark and he black, but rats don’t stumble and fall, this was a kitty and he was in trouble.

Stopped the car, and I grabbed him, there was not much left in him skin and bones, not much of either. Samson weighs little over 100 grams. A hundred grams of skin, bit of fur, infection, pus, fleas… and whole lot of PRIDE!!!!

What a cat!!! Never seen anything like it… I mean, he’s got everything going against him, he’s totally malnourished, who knows when he ate last. One of his eyes is totally gone. Instead of eye fluid, he hadpuss and infection, the other eye has severe keratitis and we don’t know if well be able to save it., and he’s black which unfortunately makes him nearly invisible as he barely comes in pictures as more than a black dot against whatever background we choose. But against all odds, this is a cat that won’t be brought down, a true survivor. Samson defines the word attitude.

Samson wants to go on with life. He doesn’t mind about loosing sight, or having to fight for weeks in order to get rid of the virus that has caused his condition, he just lives the moment as only a cat can do.

We are first going to stabilise his conditionimprove his anaemiareduce infection, and then we will operate his eye. Once this source of infection and pain is gone, he will be more comfortable and with our help his body will be able to focus on fixing the rest, on healing, on growing, on BECOMING THE CAT HE WANTS TO BE… minus the eye (and the fleas).

This is Samson, a name that signifies both strength and weakness. This is Samson, and he’ll only make it, if we help him.   I leave you with a video of him, hopefully you will see and feel what I see and feel.

After he is recovered fully Samson will need a final home… If you feel you are HIS family please contact me on viktor@myletsadopt.com

John is certainly progressing. He is eating and standing on his own. He has even taken a few steps. Still a long road to go, but John is a fighter. Thanks to the efforts of Pet Haven Animal Hospital Staff and the SCAR CREW, John is in good hands. For more info about SEAN CASEY ANIMAL RESCUE and the Documentary Film “RESCUE!

Boynton Beach couple face animal cruelty charges for allegedly abandoning four dogs

Comments Off on Boynton Beach couple face animal cruelty charges for allegedly abandoning four dogs

BOYNTON BEACH — Boynton Beach Police have issued an arrest warrant for a husband and wife who they say abandoned their four dogs and left them in a home they moved out of without food or water in deplorable conditions.

Patricia Walker, 25, and Demetris Walker, 34, face charges of cruelty to animals and unlawful confinement of animals. A warrant for their arrest was issued Aug. 2, according to police spokeswoman Stephanie Slater. They have not been arrested.

Police say that two of their four dogs were treated so poorly, that an Animal Care and Control veterinarian had to euthanize them.

Animal Cruelty Investigator Liz Roehrich went to the Walkers’ home at 124 Northwest 10th Ave. on Feb. 14 in response to a citizen’s complaint that there were abandoned animals in the home.

Neighbors told Roehrich the Walkers moved out about three weeks ago and left the dogs alone in the home. Two of the dogs were visible to Roehrich and were pushing their muzzles out of a broken window while crying and whining, according to a probable cause affidavit.

Before going inside the home, Roehrich wrote in the affidavit that there was a “putrid stench of feces and urine” coming from the home. Flies swarmed the windows and front and back doors.

Roehrich could see that the floor was “covered” in feces and urine. She didn’t see any water or food and decided to call the property owner Andrew Luchey.

Luchey sent over his employee Kim Buckner who said Patricia Walker and her children were the last known tenants of the home. She opened the door for Roehrich and two of the dogs came running toward the women.

One of the dogs was a 7-month-old black and white pit bull. The second one was a 7-month-old brindle white female pit bull. Roehrich described the dogs’ appearances as “filthy” and “underweight”.

The conditions of the home weren’t any better. The floor was “soiled” with empty pans and dishes. There was no furniture. Blood covered a large area in the corner of the floor. Blood was smeared on walls. There was a dog collar laying in the blood puddle.

Roehrich heard “frantic, aggressive” barking coming from a bedroom and found two dogs — a 1-year-old black and white female pit bull and a 7-month-old white and black female pit bull — confined in cages sitting in their own feces.

The 7-month-old appeared to be sick or injured and had “multiple puncture wounds on her head and legs,” the affidavit says.

Nearby was a snake confined in a glass tank that appeared to be taken care of and was clean.

Roehrich tried speaking with Patricia Walker and didn’t have much luck. When reached by phone, Walker told Roehrick that her dogs were “fine” and not to remove them. Then she hung up.

Demetris Walker and his sister Marqita Daniel came to the home and said the dogs must have just caused the “mess” because Walker cleaned the other day, the affidavit says.

Walker said he wanted to take the dogs, however Roehrich informed him that the animals were being seized.

Daniel was allowed to take her boa constrictor home as it appeared to be healthy.

Roehrich then had the dogs transported to Animal Care and Control, where Dr. Stephanie Martin examined them.

The dogs “frantically ate and drank” once in the veterinarian’s custody, the affidavit says.

Three of the dogs had “mild dehydration” while all the dogs were so thin that their vertebrae were visible and their pelvic bones were prominent, the affidavit says.

The dog who appeared injured was “quiet and depressed” and had old and fresh wounds. Her leg was discharging fluid.

Patricia Walker decided that while she “loved her dogs” and wanted them back, it was in her best interest to give up her ownership of them.

Two of the dogs were provided medical treatment and rehabilitation and were later adopted.

The two other dogs were too “aggressive” and “wild” and had to be euthanized.

Man allowed one dog to starve to death while another was forced to live off its remains after a MONTH with no food

Comments Off on Man allowed one dog to starve to death while another was forced to live off its remains after a MONTH with no food

 

  • Shane Maurice Potts left the animals unattended after moving with his children to stay at his mother’s home
  • The dogs were left in appalling conditions with a bag of dog biscuits just out of their reach

A dog owner allowed one of his Jack Russell’s to starve to death with another forced to eat its remains after leaving the pair without food for a month. 

Shane Maurice Potts, 29, left the animals unattended after moving with his children to stay at his mother’s home.

The dogs were left in appalling conditions and although there was a bag of dog biscuits on a worktop – it was just out of their reach.

A female called ‘Nala’, eventually starved to death while the other, a male called ‘Simba’, stayed alive by eating her remains,

Appearing at Buxton Magistrates Court yesterday, Potts, from High Peak, Derbyshire, admitted two animal cruelty charges.

The dogs were discovered by RSPCA inspector Lorna Campbell after a call from a concerned member of the public.

She said: ‘When I saw Simba at the window it was obvious he was emaciated and when I looked in I saw what I thought was a toy he’d chewed up.

‘It took a moment before I realised the full horror of what it actually was, the remains of Nala. It was devastating.’

The RSPCA had offered advice to Potts in July 2011, given him neutering vouchers and re-homed a third dog which he had at that time but had no complaints since.

The court heard that Potts and his children had moved into his mother’s house in Chapel-en-le-Frith.

He hadn’t been back to his own property for more than four weeks.

RSPCA Inspector Campbell said: ‘That Simba survived is a miracle. When police gained access he raced past us to a bowl of dirty water in the garden with cigarette butts in it and tried to drink from it.

‘The conditions in the house were terrible. The place was covered in faeces and the floor was slippery with urine. 

‘There was a shredded dog food bag on the floor, an empty tub of gravy granules and chewed towels and of course what was left of his companion.

‘Tragically, there was a bag of dog biscuits on the worktop which it looked as though the dogs had been trying to reach but it was just too high.’

Potts’ solicitor told the court he was finding it difficult to manage his responsibilities and had moved in with his mother to help.

He’s due to appear at Buxton Magistrates Court on August 21 for sentencing.

After being signed over to the RSPCA, Simba has recovered and has been happily re-homed.

Dog Survives Three Weeks Adrift At Sea After Losing His Owner

Comments Off on Dog Survives Three Weeks Adrift At Sea After Losing His Owner

 

A dog named Dingo is the subject of an amazing tale of survival after he spent three weeks adrift at sea in an abandoned boat.

The Atlantic Animal Hospital in Wilmington, North Carolina is caring for Dingo after Nathan Moody, who lives in the Bahamas, found him drifting on the abandoned vessel.

According to the Toronto Star, his owner, John William Batchelor, 72, likely died at sea while on an annual pilgrimage south. Investigators are still trying to locate his remains.

Nathan Moody is a volunteer with BASRA, a non-profit voluntary rescue organization. When he discovered Dingo alone on the boat, he said the dog was dehydrated and malnourished. He said he was so heartbroken by Dingo’s traumatic journey that he adopted him on the spot.

Dingo suffered a brief setback when Moody and Dingo were both attacked by wild dogs at his home in the Bahamas a few weeks ago.

Dingo suffered injuries to his leg during the attack and was later sent to the US for treatment when local vets said his wounds were too difficult for them to address. Rob Moody, Nathan’s brother, is keeping an eye on him while he recovers.

Nathan Moody is in the process of moving back to America from the Bahamas, and said he can’t wait to be reunited with his lucky survivor in a few weeks.

Animal Cruelty In Musquash

Comments Off on Animal Cruelty In Musquash

 

St. George RCMP are looking into a case of animal cruelty in Musquash.

The Mounties got a call Saturday that a pitbull cross was left trapped in a steel cage at a gravel pit without food, water or shelter.

Police believe the dog would not have survived long due to the 30 degree heat because the cage was wired shut.
RCMP believe the dog was dumped in the pit sometime on Friday night.

The Provincial SPCA provided assistance and the dog is now in the care of the Saint John Animal Rescue League.

 

If you can provide the RCMP with any information on this, contact the St. George RCMP 506 755-1130 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS(8477).
