The proposed sale of a figurine of “Puppy Doe,” a young pit bull mix who Massachusetts authorities say was tortured by a man later found in a New Britain hotel room is drawing the ire of animal welfare advocates.

The Puppy Doe case drew national media attention after the severely injured dog was found in Quincy, Mass. and had to be put to sleep due to the torture that was inflicted on the young female dog named Kiya by one of her former owners. Radoslaw Czerkawski, 32, of Quincy, Mass, pleaded not guilty in December to 12 counts of animal cruelty, and one count of misleading a police investigation in the case after he was found in a New Britain hotel room in October.

Czerkawski is also wanted for larcenies involving a New Bedford, Mass church. He is currently being held without bail as a flight risk, according to the Norfolk State’s Attorney’s Office in Massachusetts which is prosecuting the Puppy Doe case.

Herobuilders, an Oxford, Connecticut-based action figure company owned by Emil Vicale, announced Sunday they would be producing a figurine of the dog estimated to be one to two years old at the time of her death with 10 percent of the proceeds going to animal welfare groups. “I heard about the story and thought it would be a good thing,” Vicale said Monday. “I wanted to make a donation in Puppy Doe’s name.”

But animal welfare advocates who have been raising money in the dog’s name and staging peaceful protests outside the Norfolk courthouse when Czerkawski appears are appalled at the idea, said Deanna Terminiello of Leominster, Mass. “I was shocked,” Terminiello said when she saw Facebook posts promoting the product. “To see that made me sick that someone is trying to make a profit off of a dog that was tortured.”Several other animal welfare advocates also posted similar comments on Terminiello’s Facebook page, “The Truth About The Puppy Doe Vigil,” which has close to 300 members.

The figurines which will go into production this week can be purchased for $29.95. Vicale, who will only produce 2,000 of the resin statues, will donate 10 percent of the profits between the Animal Rescue League of Boston, which is involved in the Puppy Doe case, and the national ASPCA.

Vicale said he expects to make about $10 per figurine after he donates $3 per figurine to the two animal welfare groups. “We are not a charitable organization but we are trying to do something good,” Vicale said. A spokesperson for the Animal Rescue League of Boston said they had not been notified by Homebuilders of the potential donation but confirmed they had received other donations in the name of Puppy Doe. “If someone wants to give to the Animal Rescue League of Boston we recommend that they give directly to our organization,” said Ami Bowers, director of marketing for the group.“They could be giving us the proceeds but at this point we don’t know because we haven’t heard from them.”

A spokesperson for the Connecticut state Humane Society of the United States which offers rewards in animal abuse cases and help in prosecuting animal cruelty cases applauded the sale of the figurines. “It does seem like a well intentioned effort to raise awareness and help fund groups that support animal welfare,” said Ami Hornish, the director of the Connecticut chapter of the HSUS.

But Terminiello, who along with others helped raise $2,500 to donate to the Quincy animal shelter after the dog’s death and who attended a protest in December at the courthouse called the sale of the figurines “sickening.” “This is not about fame, it’s not about fortune,” she said. “Anyone who would profit off this dog is unimaginable.” David Traub, a spokesperson for the Norfolk State’s Attorney’s Office said Czerkawski is due back in court Feb. 11.

Video: Fireman Rescues Dog Trapped On Window Ledge

Comments Off on Video: Fireman Rescues Dog Trapped On Window Ledge

The Fire Department of New York had a crowd of spectators holding their breath as they watched one fireman patiently gain the trust of a scared dog trapped on a window ledge.

Fireman gains dogs trust as the dogs teeters on the edge of window

Witnesses said the dog appeared to have escaped out of a second-story window, but was unable to climb back in because of the window guard. New York City law states that apartments where children live must have a window guard.

“He must have wiggled through and couldn’t figure out how to get back in,” said James Morgan, the witness who caught the dramatic rescue on video.

Passers-by noticed the dog, teetering on the six-inch ledge, and began to gather around. The FDNY was called in and cleared the area under the window to pull right up under it.

The dog lost his footing several times as apprehensive onlookers watched, helplessly.

“It was pretty nerve-racking,” Morgan said.

A fire-fighter ascended toward the dog in a cherry picker, but descended to gather a leash, some water and treats. He offered water to the dog, and slowly gained its trust enough to pet it.

He clipped a leash to the dog, and after steadying himself in position, scooped the dog into the bucket lift.

The crowd erupted into relieved cheers for the heroic fire team.

Morgan said the dog was immediately brought inside, but it is unknown if the owner was in the building.

“When that dog went to lay down, you could tell by his body language he has already been beaten or abused at some point in his poor life; probably a street dog!. I hope someone had the heart to go after the dog & save it. I’m so glad this bxxxxxd got expelled, but he really should be charged with animal abuse; anyone else found doing it would be charged! Imagine, if he can do this to a dog in public, what is he capable of doing behind closed doors??”

Argentinian soccer player Jose Jimenez has been thrown off his team after grabbing a dog by the neck and launching it into a fence.

The dog wandered onto the pitch and submissively lay down on the grass. He got back up and trotted around.

Cold Hearted Bastard!!

Jimenez, who had been speaking with a referee, noticed the dog and rushed over to it. He grabbed the dog around the throat, and forcefully flung it at the chain link fence. The dog bounced off, and miraculously, got up and trotted away.

Jimenez was initially given a red card for his despicable action, which got him sent off and expelled for three games.

The incident was captured on video and incited worldwide outrage. After consideration, the Argentine club permanently expelled Jimenez.

“The Executive Committee of CS Bella Vista [have decided that], by violently throwing a dog that had entered the field of play while the game was in progress, our club cannot protect the human and sporting image of Jose Antonio Jimenez, which has been damaged by his incomprehensible attitude,” a club statement read. “In accordance with the Committee’s Book of Proceedings, we have cancelled his registration from our roster.”

Though Jimenez may find himself on another team in the future, he will do it without fans.

Grandma Accuses Granddaughter of Kicking Dog To Death

Comments Off on Grandma Accuses Granddaughter of Kicking Dog To Death

“WTF…How on earth can this girl not face charges of animal cruelty? At 14 years old she knew what she was doing, therefore should face the consequences. If nothing is done, expect to here more animal abuse cases, involving this girl!!”

Police in Ypsilanti, Mich., have opened an investigation into a possible case of animal cruelty following a woman’s report that her dog was killed on Sunday night, reported Monday’s Ann Arbor.com.

Few details have been released about the incident, but enough is known that it appears that family tensions are likely to be running high as the animal cruelty allegations are against the dog owner’s own granddaughter.

The dog, who is referred to as a puppy in the police report, was allegedly kicked to death by the 14-year-old granddaughter of the woman who owned the pup.

According to the report, the girl may not face charges. The police are, however, speaking to the family about what happened.

Pemiscot Co. Animal Welfare Society Seek Info on Abandoned Kittens

Comments Off on Pemiscot Co. Animal Welfare Society Seek Info on Abandoned Kittens

DUNKLIN/PEMISCOT COUNTIES, MO (KAIT) – Kittens only days old have a local sanitation employee to thank after he saved their lives when he found them in the garbage.

A sanitation employee with Branum’s Disposal Service based in Kennett was making his usual route in Hornersville.

He said he heard kittens crying in a dumpster located between the community building and the city park and rescued them.

The man took the kittens to Dr. Edmund Landry’s office where they called the Pemiscot Animal Welfare Society, since the Kennett Humane Department was closed to cats at the time.

One of the kittens has bite wounds and appears to be paralyzed.

PAWS is asking for anyone with information on the kittens found in the dumpster to contact them at 573-359-0113 or 573-359-5802.
