Rescued On A Busy Road After Being Thrown Out, Bridget Needs Your Help

Comments Off on Rescued On A Busy Road After Being Thrown Out, Bridget Needs Your Help

“Another piece of crap who just couldn’t be arsed to take the poor dog to a shelter…people who do things like this are not fit to wipe the SXXT off shoes or breathe the same air as decent folk…Somebody must recognise Bridget, or at least notice that the dog that used be next door, has gone !! Well I hope whoever ditched Bridget feels good about themselves, they won’t for much longer… because I’m sending my friend ‘KARMA’ over for a little visit; not sure when…hopefully when they least expect it!!”

Imagine driving down a busy road and seeing someone throw litter out the window.  Now imagine that what you are actually  seeing is a live dog, being discarded like a bag of trash.

This is what happened to Bridget, a “happy-go-lucky” beagle mix, Route 53 in Weymouth, MA according to Joanne Mainiero, president of the Massachusetts Humane Society.

Fortunately for Bridget, she has a guardian angel in the form of a good Samaritan who witnessed the event and stopped in time to keep her from being hit by a car.  Bridget is now with the Humane Society, but her story doesn’t end here.   The perky pup has a growth on her leg which must be removed and some other medical issues that must be addressed before before she can put up for adoption.

Bridget – thrown out of moving car like a bag of trash!!

The Humane Society needs help to cover the costs of treating Bridget.  “We d don’t want to give up on her,” Mainiero said. “She’s a great dog. She really is happy.”  As soon as her treatment is complete, she will be fostered until she is ready to be adopted to her forever home.  Bridget was given a remarkable second chance when she was saved by her good Samaritan and is a big step closer to the life she deserves with a loving family.

If you would like to help with Bridget’s expenses, you can make cheques out to Massachusetts Humane Society with “Bridget” in the memo line, and mail them to PO Box 890127, East Weymouth, MA 02189.  For more information about donating or to volunteer to foster Bridget, call 781-335-1300 or send email to masshumane@aol.com.

Women who tossed dog out of car sentenced to 7 months in jail

Comments Off on Women who tossed dog out of car sentenced to 7 months in jail

 

“Apologies for size of picture but I think scum like this deserve to have more than a thumbnail; so they will be recognised by all! Notice I also changed the title,’ dog tosser’ didn’t seem right!!”

A woman who threw her boyfriend’s dog into freeway traffic, killing it in December, will spend seven months in jail and barred from owning pets for five years.

Shellie Hubbard, convicted of throwing her boyfriend’s dog on the freeway, causing it to be struck and killed, is pictured here at her arraignment in January. She was sentenced Friday to seven months in jail.

The sentence was imposed Friday afternoon by Clark County Superior Court Judge Barbara Johnson. Shellie Hubbard, 46, of Portland pleaded guilty Aug. 30 to first-degree animal cruelty, third-degree assault and possession of methamphetamine.

The judge noted the seriousness of the case that sparked public interest last winter, summing up Hubbard’s actions: “It endangered other people, the victim, and then obviously the throwing of the dog in traffic” caused an animal’s death.

The crime happened the evening of Dec. 22, when Hubbard got into an argument with her boyfriend, Darwin Vonschirmer, while Vonschirmer was driving south on Interstate 205. The couple were apparently breaking up, attorneys have said. As their car approached Padden Parkway, Hubbard struck him with a broken coffee mug, slicing his hand, troopers said at the time.

Vonschirmer pulled the car over to the shoulder. As they continued arguing, Hubbard let the Catahoula leopard hound dog, Peanut Butter, out of the car. When Vonschirmer tried to scoop up the dog, she threw Peanut Butter into traffic.

As the dog attempted to walk back to the freeway’s shoulder, it was struck by a car and died at the scene.

The sentencing range for first-degree animal cruelty is up to one year in jail. Prosecutors and the defense both recommended a seven-month sentence. Hubbard has credit for 52 days served.

“It is a substantial sentence within our sentencing ranges,” Johnson agreed, imposing the term.

The judge also ordered a substance abuse evaluation because one of Hubbard’s crimes is drug-related.

Hubbard did not wish to speak at the hearing. On her behalf, defense attorney Jeff Sowder said his client loved Peanut Butter; she even retrieved the dog’s body from the freeway 10 days after she was released from jail and buried the dog herself. “It’s disgraceful that a dogs body could rest dead on a highway for 10 days…it’s more disgraceful she professed to love the dog, she ultimately put to death!”

“I think (her boyfriend) would say the dog was both of theirs,” Sowder said.

Deputy Prosecutor Michelle Nisle read a statement written by Vonschirmer, who wasn’t present for the hearing. He said he was still grieving Peanut Butter and another dog who ran away around the same time as the incident. “If he loved the dog so much, how come he left it on a highway dead, for 10 days? I would be out all hours until I found it, if it were my pet!”

“I miss my animals every day, and I think about them every day,” he wrote, later adding: “I have forgiven her. I no longer feel threatened by her.”

AZ Dog survives being thrown from moving vehicle

Comments Off on AZ Dog survives being thrown from moving vehicle

PHOENIX (CBS5) –

A puppy thrown from a moving vehicle is getting a new lease on life, thanks to an Maricopa County animal rescue group.

Here is Juno in Helping Orphaned Hounds’ care.

The puppy, named Juno, suffered two broken elbows and severe road rash after she was tossed from a moving car.

The dog was within a mere two hours of being euthanized when the group Helping Orphaned Hounds claimed her and took her in.

“They gave us a brief window of two hours because it was inhumane to keep her without pain management,” Helping Orphaned Hounds spokesman Jason Rieker said.

Funding for Juno’s care will come from the Phoenix Animal Care Coalition’s Lulu‘s Angel Fund.

The fund was created earlier this year to help pay for treatment in severe animal neglect or abuse cases.

Comments Off on Women Throws Box Of Cats And A Yorkshire Terrier Out Of Moving Car

Unbelievable…watch the video at the link below!” 

Animal Control workers in Clarksville, Tennessee watched in horror as a woman threw a box containing seven cats out of her moving vehicle at the shelter, and later returned to hurl a Yorkshire Terrier out of the car and into the street.

“The car sped out of our parking lot, opened up the car door while it was moving, and threw out a Yorkshire Terrier out of a moving vehicle. The dog chased after the car for a while because obviously it was the owner,” said Montgomery County Animal Control Director Karen Josephson.

She and local police would both like help from the public to identify the woman. Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call Clarksville police at (931) 648-0656.

A 22-year-old man admitted Monday to throwing two dogs, one from a car window and another from a hotel balcony, earlier this year and was sentenced to a year and roughly six months in jail.

Enrico Calogero Farruggio of Falls Church pleaded guilty in General District Court to two misdemeanor counts of animal cruelty, which resulted in the death of one dog and the serious injury of another. The case drew several dog-lovers to the courtroom.

Judge Pamela E. Hutchens called the incidents “totally heinous and cruel,” convicting Farruggio and sentencing him to two years in jail, with 165 days suspended. Hutchens also prohibited Farruggio from owning or handling animals in Virginia Beach and ordered him to pay $3,500 in fines and $314 in restitution for veterinary bills.

Farruggio is appealing the conviction.

Hannah-Nicole Kymmell, who owned the dogs, said the incidents occurred during arguments with Farruggio, who was her boyfriend at the time.

On March 21, Farruggio threw one dog from a car window during an argument with Kymmell, according to court testimony. Veterinarians euthanized the dog when Kymmell couldn’t afford to pay for his treatment, according to testimony.

Farruggio was upset the dog, a 5-year-old Maltese named Buttercream Nicholas, had urinated inside the vehicle, Kymmell said later. Farruggio apologized and, less than a week later, purchased a replacement, a 4-month-old Havanese puppy that Kymmell named Creampuff Maxwell, she said.

In a subsequent argument April 4, Farruggio threw that puppy from the balcony of the Econo Lodge on Bonney Road, acc

ording to Kymmell and court testimony. Veterinarians saved Creampuff Maxwell, and the city paid for his treatment and found him a new home, according to court testimony.

“I was devastated,” Kymmell said. “They were everything to me.”

Farruggio’s attorney, Charles Lustig, said his client was suffering from drug addictionand long-standing mental health problems and has since sought treatment for both.”Your honor, I’m here to try to defend the indefensible today,” Lustig told Hutchens. “… This was a young man who was extremely troubled and has done everything he can to adjust.”News Link:-http://hamptonroads.com/2012/06/man-pleads-guilty-throwing-dogs-virginia-beach

MCDONOUGH, GA (CBS ATLANTA) – Video Link below

A 10-week-old boxer puppy who was reportedly thrown out the window of a moving car in front of the Clayton County Animal Care and Control Facility is recovering at a local animal hospital.

The puppy, named Dozer by his rescuers, is now recovering at the McDonough Animal Hospital where Veterinarian Erica Ortiz is caring for him.

“He was launched basically from the passenger window, they didn’t even slow down, they just threw him out into the parking lot,” Ortiz said.

All four of Dozer’s legs were bandaged up after the pads on his feet were torn up when he was thrown onto asphalt. The wounds were so deep that bones and ligaments were exposed. His abdomen was also scraped.

The Clayton County Sheriff’s Department released a photo of a 21-year-old Quincy Egbon McDonnell, who witnesses said they saw throw Dozer out of the moving car. Authorities were still investigating whether or not they could charge McDonnell with animal cruelty.

The heartless BSD that did it!

Once Dozer is healed, he can be adopted. Several families have already expressed interest in him.

If you want to help pay for his medical bills, you can donate by calling the McDonough Animal Hospital and donating to the Partners for Pets fund in Dozer’s honor. Just call (770) 957-3927.
