13 News viewer tip leads to dead puppy, neglected dogs

Comments Off on 13 News viewer tip leads to dead puppy, neglected dogs

A puppy is discovered dead in its owner’s yard as other dogs run unrestrained around it. An anonymous 13 News viewer tip lead us to Stephen Reese’s house in the community of London in Kanawha County.

The caller said there was a dead puppy in the yard, and they feared the other animals at the house were being neglected.

They were right. Our cameras were rolling when Reese came home. He said he had no idea the puppy had died.

“I didn’t know. It wasn’t there yesterday. Evidently it happened sometime last night,” he said.

Reese admitted he was in over his head with the animals. He wasn’t even sure how many animals he had.

“I don’t want them put down but if I have to I guess I will. We put 6 or 8 signs out at the post office and stores and everything. We’ve gotten rid of 3 or 4. I was just going to give it another week,” he said.

The Kanawha County Humane Association also heard about the dead puppy.

Humane Officer Jeff Allen came to check out the rest of the animals on the property.

It turns out, most of them have health problems.

“Some of the dogs have mange. They have very bad flea issues. Some of them have a lot of ear irritations and infections and damages from flies and stuff to their ears. They’re just undernourished and need taken care of,” Allen said.

Reese agreed to sign over six of the dogs to the KCHA. He said he never meant for the animals to end up in the conditions they’re in.

Allen said the dogs will be put up for adoption after they’re treated by a veterinarian.

“Hopefully we can get them up for adoption and into good homes,” he said.

Reese’s problems are far from over with.

He’s now facing animal cruelty and neglect charges for the animals that were taken away from him.

You can call the humane society if you’re interested in adopting any of these dogs at 304-342-1576.

All who walked away from Kingston played a part in his neglect, says rescuer

Comments Off on All who walked away from Kingston played a part in his neglect, says rescuer

“I first saw this story on Face Book & couldn’t share as I didn’t have permission, but now it’s on Examiner’s site, you can read all about it!”

“Reading  about a dog, alone & lost in the world will break your heart & make you cry!. But please, read it, read all the links below, for the sake of Kingston & all the other dogs, people pass by without a second glance.” R.I.P Kingston x

Kingston, sick and starving, abandoned by owners, ignored by neighbors

I apologize for taking so long to post an update,” Jamie Mitschke wrote on her Facebook page. “It has been a long, exhausting day trying to help Kingston and dealing with my other fosters.”

Anyone who has ever rescued even one animal knows the feeling. When you’re responsible for several of them, the exhaustion factor skyrockets, both physically and emotionally.

Yet Mischke diligently went on to describe the disturbing details of her experiences on that brutally hot day in one of Houston’s most impoverished areas.

A volunteer with Love Puppy Breath Rescue, Mischke had devoted her Sunday to join other volunteers from Forgotten Dogs of the 5th Ward Project and Corridor Rescue, Inc. so as to locate and help an abandoned, deathly ill and starved dog who they named “Kingston.”

Mischke’s account not only sheds additional light on the events reported previously here on Animal Policy Examiner; she concludes with a moving plea for more citizen involvement to improve the plight of the world’s many forgotten and desperate animals.

‘They said he looked like a hyena—they were scared of him’

“Kingston was originally seen by a healthcare worker at an apartment complex,” Mischke began. “She fed him yesterday and emailed Kelle Mann Davis [of Forgotten Dogs of the 5th Ward Project]. Kelle posted the pictures to Facebook late last night and I couldn’t get the dog out of my head.

“At 7:00 a.m. today, plans were sealed to go on the search. We arrived at the complex just after 8:00 a.m. and talked to a lot of residents.

“It seemed everyone knew Kingston. They said he looked like a hyena, that we shouldn’t touch him, and that they were scared of him.

“Poor Kingston had been hanging around the dumpsters and sleeping under cars for quite a long time—it’s unclear how long—and no one lifted a finger until the amazing healthcare worker reached out.

“We drove and walked the complex and surrounding streets, always hearing stories of the hyena dog, but it wasn’t until almost five hours later that we found him.

“Kelle and her wonderful husband came upon him walking down the middle of the road, and when the dog tried to make it over to Kelle, he collapsed. I was on the other side of the apartment complex, so Kelle called.

“I got there, and when we lifted him off the street, I was unable to feel any femoral pulses. Poor Kingston was in very bad condition. His mucus membrane color was terrible, his skin obviously horrible, and he was crawling with ants.

‘At least he got one day of love’: Sick, starved dog finally found comfort

“The local area offered little for veterinary care. He would have to be in the car for almost 45 minutes till we reached a vet. We made him as comfortable as we could.

Yvette sat in the back of the car with him on the way and she said that he was eating and was trying to get up and move. She kept him calm and finally he laid his head in her lap and relaxed. Poor guy.

“Kingston is at the vet now. His blood work wasn’t as bad as we imagined, but it’s not great. He is heart worm positive of course, and has sarcoptic mange. We’ll know more later.”

‘At least he knew one day of love”

Tragically, Kingston did not make it. The illnesses, severe malnutrition, and deadly dehydration that had mounted during untold months or years of neglect combined to create an enemy too fierce for even the expert and devoted care he had finally found.

Mischke, her fellow rescuers, and the many others who followed the dog’s harrowing story only took consolation in knowing that, as DeAnna McGuire Clawson put it, “at least he knew one day of love.”

‘Please don’t turn your back on strays’

“Every single person that saw Kingston and walked away played a part in his neglect,” Mischke wrote, “including the original person who owned him.

“Please, PLEASE…don’t turn your back on strays. That is how they get to this condition.

“We understand that not everyone can take on a stray, but reach out. There ARE people that will help. There are people like us. Find us. We WANT you to find us.”

She is a very sweet puppy, great with people and other pets.

The finder (The person who found her) has threatened to take the puppy to be euthanized if a rescue does not step forward within 24 hours.

Please contacbeth.kosar@gmail.com to donate or rescue this sweet little puppy. She certainly does not deserve to die.
