WTF…CAT TRAUMATIZED BY SICK CRUELTY…WHY???

Just when you think you have seen the worst animal cruelty cases, another one comes out of the woodwork even sicker.

How cruel can anyone be? Amigo was found like this and left in a box in a parking lot

On Thursday morning, a shelter worker at the County of Los Angeles Department of Animal Care and Control discovered a box outside of the Baldwin Park parking lot. When he opened the box, it was a cat whose mouth, nose, and paws had been tied with red duct tape.

According to the San Gabriel Valley Tribune, the shelter worker, Abraham Contreras discovered the cat and brought the two-year-old male domestic short hair cat into the shelter where the duct tape was removed.

The cat was gasping for breath, and although quite scared and timid, he is now making progress in his rehabilitation.

Named Amigo by his rescuers, the lucky cat will be placed in a foster home until he is ready for adoption.

DACC Director Marcia Mayeda stated:

“I can’t imagine why someone would do this to a cat. Animal cruelty is heartbreaking, intolerable and usually a precursor to human violence.

Loyal dog who stood by body of friend run over in Los Angeles traffic reunited with family

“OMG…Happy ending for one dog…But…If the family who owned Maggie cared for her, how did she get out & why wasn’t she micro chipped?  Moreover….were is the heartless scum that hit the yellow Labrador….he needs to be found & punished!”

A loyal Labrador retriever named Maggie, who was videotaped as she guarded the body of a yellow Lab hit and killed by a car in Southern California, has been reunited with her family.

Maggie’s family claimed her Monday from a Los Angeles Shelter, after she had been spayed and microchipped and dozens had offered to adopt her.

Loyal: Maggie was laying in the street next to another dog, which was motionless and had suffered obvious head trauma

A good Samaritan saw the incident in La Puente last Wednesday, called officers, put traffic cones around the dogs and took the video that touched hearts across the country.

Animal Care and Control Captain Aaron Reyes says officers were getting the dogs out of the street at the same time Maggie’s family was at the shelter looking for her.

He says Maggie can go home on Tuesday after shelter workers inspect her home.

The footage released on Saturday showed the female Labrador lying next to a motionless, yellow Labrador as vehicles pass dangerously close to them.

Blood can be seen around the injured dog’s head while the Labrador waits by its side

Animal control officials responded to the scene and took the frightened but unharmed dog to a shelter.

The Los Angeles County Department of Animal Care and Control (DACC) said the two-year-old dog, who animal shelter staff and volunteers have named Grace, appears to have been well cared for.

But as no one came forward to claim her, and she did not have a tag or microchip implant, she went up for adoption.

DACC said in a statement: ‘(Grace was) laying in the street next to another dog, which was motionless and had suffered obvious head trauma,’ according the San Gabriel Valley Tribune.

‘When I saw the video clip taken from a passers-by cellphone, it made me emotional,’ the shelter’s director Marcia Mayeda said.

Internet users were also moved by the sad footage which was posted on to YouTube. One person, who posted under the name mmamv83, said: ‘That’s sad as hell. Hope the dog finds a good home.’

While another named mjlbdad said: ‘I wish I could adopt this dog.’

This news article was on Fox 8 news out of High Point, N.C. on 4-16-12. This loyal labrador wouldn’t leave his buddy’s side even in his time of need. The black labrador remained by the yellow labrador until animal control came and helped her out. Unfortunately the yellow labrador past away from being hit by a car. They couldn’t find the owners of the two. They took her to the shelter and give her a name. Her name is Grace. I hope Grace gets a good forever home with a great family
