Comments Off on (GRAPHIC IMAGES) 24 bomb-sniffing German Shepherds slaughtered to seek revenge;100 still at risk!

“WTF…how evil must one be to kill these beautiful & intelligent dogs over unpaid salaries??? What the hell is the fate of the other 100 German Shepherds? Are these monsters going to get away with brutally killing them too? I have posted this everywhere because there must be somebody or some group who can save the remaining dogs. I’ve never been as shocked about such torturous killings over something so petty as a bloody contract & money. Praying for all those dogs still at risk that they will be saved somehow…sobbing my eyes out!!!”

New Delhi: The tale of the brutal abuse of animals is not a new one but the merciless massacre of about 24 German Shepherds by the employees to seek revenge for unpaid salaries is certainly a horrifying incident.

According to reports, up to 24 dogs that were used for protection by the Eastern Securities, a security company in Kuwait, were killed after it lost its lucrative contract to provide Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) with explosive detection dogs for their oil rigs.

Due to which, despite years of faithful service, these K-9s were simply thrown into the trash. On June 17, 2016, disturbing pictures of the dead dogs began circulating on Facebook; one that showed them piled up against cages….

……while the other that showed a man taking pleasure in standing over the innocent dead creature.

Turns out that the 140 dogs (out of which about 100 continue to be at the risk of being slaughtered) owned by the Eastern Securities became a liability for the company, the moment KNPC cancelled its contract. The cost to feed them and to house them was too much for the Kuwaiti company to take and thus, instead of turning the dogs over, the company decided to kill the bomb sniffing dogs.

Reportedly, the killing wasn’t carried out by a licensed veterinarian and allegedly, the dogs suffered excruciating pain as they died because the medicine used to kill them wasn’t meant for them.

Animal abuse has been on a steady rise for quite some time now. Efforts have been made by animal rights activists and other organizations for their welfare but all in vain.

Animals continue to be tortured and butchered in various parts of the world and such incidents continue to depict the evil side of the man that would go to any extent to fulfill its selfish needs.

Video: Schoep Passes Away

Comments Off on Video: Schoep Passes Away

“Sorry, I’ve been away for several days due to ongoing health problems! I did posts as & when I could, but could never finish them in their entirety, due to pain!! So many posts are not in the date order they should be, & it’s going to get worse, before it get’s better, hence several posts at once! For new followers, please bear with me, I’m waiting on having a morphine pump fitted, to ease my pain; which should enable me to post daily again…fingers crossed!! So please excuse any mistakes, pain affects my ability to notice errors, due to lack of concentration etc.!!”

“It was with great sadness that I came back, to find out Schoep had passed away; even though I didn’t know them personally, his passing, broke my heart! He was indeed a special dog with my kind of very special owner, prepared to do anything to help ease his best friends pain. I followed his story when I first saw a video of John in the water with Schoep; floating, asleep in Johns arms! I hope John finds peace in the knowledge that Schoep’s legacy can help many more dogs & that Schoep is now at peace; due to Johns special care! R.I.P dear Schoep, you will surely be missed by many. But now you can run, free from pain, through the tall grass, jump fallen trees & swim in crystal clear waters; just over Rainbow Bridge”!

Only a month ago we celebrated Schoep’s twentieth birthday. Sadly on Wednesday Schoep passed away.

Schoep enjoying the sunshine

Schoep became an internet sensation when a picture of his owner soothing his arthritis in a lake went viral.

Over 187,000 people follow Schoep and John on their Facebook page, captivated by the love the two had for each other.

On Thursday John posted “I Breathe But I Can’t Catch My Breath…Schoep passed yesterday.”

Schoep and John’s story has had a significant impact on many. When the picture and their story went viral donations started pouring in from all over the world.

More than enough money came in to give Schoep the best possible care for his arthritis.

John and Schoep’s veterinarian, Erik Haukass, decided to use the rest of the money to help others. They created Schoep’s Legacy Foundation.

The foundation’s goal is to help low-income families care for their animals. To date the foundation has raised over $25,000.

“It could help another 30 or 40 Schoeps,” said Haukass.

The Image that captured the hearts of many, which I saved to my pc when I first saw the video!  John Hunger taking Schoep swimming to ease his pain! R.I.P

Schoep will be missed by his many fans, and most importantly by John, his best friend of 20 years.

People from Texas to Japan to Slovakia gave money to help pay Schoep’s veterinary bills, medications and laser treatments.
It gave the faithful companions another year together.

Firefighters Revive Yellow Lab Saved from Southern Illinois House Fire | Life With Dogs

Comments Off on Firefighters Revive Yellow Lab Saved from Southern Illinois House Fire | Life With Dogs

“Phew…close call, dread to think what would have happened had they not been able to get oxygen into the dog! I think this proves all fire engines should carry these life saving masks, made especially for dogs. Kudos to HALO for donating them. Perhaps people could visit their web site for ways to help them, so more of these dog masks can be given to the fire services. And LIKE their Facebook page, I have, just to show my gratitude for their life saving donation & their commitment to helping animals in need!!”

On June 25, 2013, Swansea Ill. firefighters responded to a house fire at 4069 Bassen Drive, just after 2 a.m. Auggie, a yellow Labrador retriever, was found unconscious on a bathroom floor, but luckily fire rescuers pulled him to safety and revived him.

Animal Hero’s

“We had to carry him out and he didn’t look like he was with us at all,” Swansea Fire Chief John McGuire toldBND. “He’s a big dog, between 80 and 100 pounds. One guy was dragging him and one was pushing him. We gave him some oxygen and dribbled some water into his mouth and called the vet.”

The home in which Auggie was trapped was a two-story home that quickly filled up with heavy smoke. Fire was visible on the first floor.

According to McGuire, the fire seemed suspicious. No one, other than Auggie locked in the bathroom was home at the time the blaze started, and the fire had multiple points of origin.

Auggie’s life was saved thanks to the fire department being equipped with pet oxygen masks. These had been donated by Helping Animals Find Loving Owners (HALO) back in 2009. Auggie is the first dog to benefit from the donated masks given to the Swansea Fire Department.

“The masks are designed for an animal’s face for a better seal,” said Roni Aguirre, president of HALO. “We donated the masks in the hopes that if they ever had the unfortunate need to use one, they would have it.”

Auggie was lifeless when pulled from the fire, but as soon as rescuers revived the pet, he was taken to theLashley Animal Hospital. When McGuire stopped by to check on Auggie around 9 a.m., he found an entirely different dog.

“I couldn’t believe it was the same dog from seven hours before,” McGuire said. “He was on a leash and he jumped all over me.”

If it wasn’t for the hero fire-fighters  their love to help everyone – included our four-legged friends, and the donated oxygen masks by HALO, Auggie wouldn’t be alive today.

Outrage Over Animal Cruelty Penalties

Comments Off on Outrage Over Animal Cruelty Penalties

Community outrage at the court results of animal cruelty cases has prompted a social media campaign for harsher penalties.

Pony long hooves

RSPCA Tasmania launched the campaign on its Facebook page last night after posting the results of two recent animal cruelty cases  heard in Launceston.

In one case, two women from Perth were put on a 12 month good behaviour order but escaped conviction for failing to seek appropriate veterinary treatment for four kittens.

RSPCA Tasmania president Dr Paul Swiatkowski said most sentences imposed for animal cruelty were manifestly inadequate.

It’s hard to keep prosecuting and fighting for justice when the sentences don’t reflect the pain and suffering caused to the animal,” Dr Swiatkowski said.

The RSPCA and the Tasmanian public expect better from our justice system. When it comes to animal cruelty matters, the courts are clearly failing and in many instances sending the message that animals don’t matter.”

RSPCA business manager Allison Ball, who manages the Facebook page, said community outrage was clear every time she posted results of a court case on-line.

 Every time I post on the court results we get about 300 to 400 comments saying `what a dreadful result’,” Ms Ball said.

The social media campaign, titled Through the Eyes of the Law, urges people to email Attorney-General Brian Wightman to call for harsher penalties under the Animal Welfare Act.

As of this morning, the campaign post had been shared 289 times.

UPDATE: Elizabeth Lewis found guilty of animal cruelty in death of pit bull Bruiser

Comments Off on UPDATE: Elizabeth Lewis found guilty of animal cruelty in death of pit bull Bruiser

Guilty; but I think her sentence is pitiful. Just look at that face & remember it, that’s the face of an animal abuser! These people are heartless & self-centred, they don’t’ give a shit about living sentient beings. They are so cruel & callous, they walk past their pets each day, not giving a dam that they are starving, cold, injured etc. So instead of sending them to a cosy prison (often better than their own abode) with a cosy bed, food etc. I personally I think it would do more good & certainly be cheaper, to just drop them off on a deserted island, surrounded by sharks so they can’t get away. No food, water or protection! Because that’s the only way they are ever going to get close, to how their pet felt! See how they bloody well like that, I bet there wouldn’t be half as many who would abuse an animal again!!” 

Video at link below. HAMILTON, Ohio — A Hamilton woman charged with animal cruelty in the death of her dog was found guilty Tuesday after pleading no contest.

In February, Elizabeth Lewispit bull, Bruiser, was found emaciated and was later euthanized to end his suffering.

Elizabeth Lewis, 19, of Hamilton

Lewis, 19, previously faced an animal cruelty charge for the alleged mistreatment of Bruiser. The dog was taken to an animal shelter in August.

At that time, he weighed 17 pounds and appeared to be malnourished. She was found not guilty of the first charge after a bench trial.

Animal rights supporters created a Facebook page in memory of the pit bill, called “Justice For Bruiser.”

The group, and the online response surrounding it, caused the case to garner national attention and dozens of protestors locally.

Tuesday, Lewis was found guilty of animal cruelty and failure to file for a dog tag. She was sentenced to 180 days in jail, 90 of which were stayed. 

She owes $646 in court costs and faces two years of supervised community service.

Severely Burned Pitbull Delivers Her Puppies In Illinois (Photos)

Comments Off on Severely Burned Pitbull Delivers Her Puppies In Illinois (Photos)

“Our prayers were answered…Petunia, the beautiful Pitbull dog that was set on fire, finally gave birth…thanks to all who prayed for her & her babies! But the bastard that set her on fire is still loose…he must be caught as he is a danger to all!”

Petunia’s new precious babies!

On Thursday, a grievously wounded dog was discovered alongside a roadway in Monee, Ill., and on Friday night, she gave birth to five puppies.

Petunia

The dog, named “Petunia,”  is now the responsibility of the rescue organization, It’s a Pittie Rescue, and she is receiving veterinary treatment from the Animal Wellness Center, whose staff stayed with her through the night to ensure that her delivery went smoothly.

Petunia & her precious babies!

Since Petunia’s story was first published, well wishes have been pouring in from across the nation.

Petunia has extensive burns across much of her body. Though no one is certain what happened to her, it appears that she was intentionally set on fire.

Fortunately, she was discovered and rescued, literally in the nick of time.

Petunia now has her own Facebook page, “Mama Petunia,” which can be accessed here.

Poodle Gets Makeover, Chance At New Life

Comments Off on Poodle Gets Makeover, Chance At New Life

“OMG…a Poodle…it looks more like an alien! This is shocking & has infuriated the hell out of me! I’m sick of seeing instances like this. That poor girl must have been in agony, carrying those massive locks of matted hair around. Why for the love of God, does somebody get a dog like this & not brush it weekly?? I just don’t understand the mentality of some people…do they really look at the dog & think it’s ok? well they must do; or else we wouldn’t keep seeing dogs in such appalling conditions!”

“All I can say is thank the Lord she was rescued, had she not been; I fear her life would have ended sooner & in a severe amount of pain too! But I have to ask, why the hell was this person not prosecuted for this? Just because they allowed the dog to be surrendered, does not excuse them, when all it needed was a daily quick brush; it just sheer bloody laziness!

“Ok, those that surrender due to unforeseen circumstances, who have not caused the animal any pain or neglected it in any way; no, don’t punish the responsible owners!”

 “I say, punish those who surrender an animal, that has obviously been neglected, abused or cruelly treated; like this poor girl, looks like she had been neglected for a very long time, if not her whole life; her owners should still be prosecuted!! Had they not surrendered her, they would have eventually had the dog taken off them & have been prosecuted…in these cases, it just doesn’t seem fair. These owners get off Scott free; & still have the luxury of buying further animals if they so wish! No, the law needs to be changed to reflect the difference in circumstances when surrendered!!”

“Why the hell get a dog, who’s coat is going to need attention if you have no intention of either keeping it clean & brushed yourself; or sending it to a fur dresser? I’m sorry but I have little sympathy with those who say, I couldn’t do it, or couldn’t afford to send to a fur dresser…that is no excuse. God chose to give humans a voice, so they should bloody well use it. Surely they could ask the local shelter or somebody to help, but far too many times the owner doesn’t say anything!! I don’t know how they can look at their pets & think every is fine or just pretend everything is hunky dory! “

“If a murderer handed himself in, should that mean he doesn’t have to pay for his crime? No, he will still be punished…what’s the difference??

“I have Yorkshire Terrier’s whose hair, I believe is the most similar to human hair, it certainly grows like human hair & they don’t moult. In the summer, they have their coats cut fairly short; which is much easier to maintain. But it gets still gets knotted if not brushed; for easiness on my part, they have 2 brushes, one is kept in the pocket of my wheelchair, the other next to my bed; so wherever I am, they get brushed until they decide to run off. However, during the winter I let their coats grow to keep them warm; & although they are still bathed & brushed every month, like in summer…they both still go to the fur dresser  every 12 weeks. Why? well the main reason is their hair needs to be cut around their faces, nails trimmed & anal glands seen to! Plus they both have needle sharp teeth; I only have 2 hands & rather like the 10 fingers I have…so it’s best left to the professionals!!

DENTON (CBSDFW.COM) – Animal shelter volunteers in Denton have rescued a neglected 14-year-old poodle and are hoping to soon give her a new life.

Ginger as she was brought in

Ginger as she was brought in

Ginger was rescued from a hoarding situation in Denton when her owner decided to give her up in hoping someone would provide a better home.

“Her hair was matted so badly that it was matted into her mouth,” said Stacy Smith with the Humane Society of Flower Mound. “There’s still hair that we’re not able to get out of her teeth until we’re able to put her under anesthesia.”

Smith says doctors have treated Ginger for dehydration, though other health concerns remain according to the shelter Facebook page.

“She has a heart murmur and is running a fever–no surprise she has an infection going on so she got a shot and we’ll run bloodwork tomorrow when she is rehydrated a bit.”

Ginger after being shaved, bless her!

Ginger has so far eaten a big meal of specially prepared food and is resting comfortably.

People can follow Ginger’s progress at #gingerthepoodle on twitter.
