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.

North Shore Animal League America – Help JJ Heal from Neglect

Comments Off on North Shore Animal League America – Help JJ Heal from Neglect

he veterinary team at North Shore Animal League America has treated animals with serious illnesses and injuries of all kinds, but when they first saw JJ, they were shocked—and saddened.

Upon rescue of this young, gentle Pit Bull mix from a high-kill shelter, it was clear from his raw, red skin that JJ had been horribly neglected.

J suffers from a horrific and painful condition called Demodex mange, which had been left untreated for many months. In JJ’s case, this condition led to hair loss, inflamed and infected skin, and bloody lesions.

Many cases of Demodex can be resolved with little treatment, but JJ’s case is so advanced that he will require extensive and possibly lifelong medical care.

Will you help?

With proper care, JJ’s condition will improve dramatically. And, with his sweet disposition, he is sure to find a loving, permanent home.

Sadly, had the Animal League not rescued him, it is likely that JJ would have been euthanized due to the extent of his medical condition.

Your support of the Help Me Heal Program helps animals like JJ get the care they desperately needPlease donate today.

As the world’s largest no-kill rescue and adoption organization, we understand that a rescue isn’t complete until each animal is placed into a loving home. Our innovative programs provide education to reduce animal cruelty, and advance standards in animal welfare. Our staff and volunteers work tirelessly in the pursuit of our vision of a world where all companion animals find permanent homes to end euthanasia
