Update: Adopted/Safe!

A senior Labrador retriever, housed at the Carson Animal Services facility in California, is depressed and sick. The eight-year-old dog, named “Rodney,” has been at the animal control agency since March 8 – during his stay, he has contracted an infection and it is readily apparent, in a recent video, that he is urgently in need of help.

On March 24, the volunteer-run Facebook page, Saving Carson Shelter Dogs, wrote:

    Poor guy. He needs medical attention. Labs are great dogs. I hope Rodney gets adopted or rescued very soon. I’m sorry Rodney that your human failed you. Please do not let this dog die!

      Many doctors will not vaccinate themselves or family members because of the toxins and carcinogens in vaccines.

        Now I UNDERSTAND “YOUR ” ISSUES “DR. of GOD” YOU got vaccinated!!! Because your mind can’t function and compute due to the dramatic effects of the vaccines that numerous people on this site have asked you to curtail the Religious Propaganda!!!

      Michelle Taylor just as in any segment of society, there are the easily brainwashed, and the ones who search and dig for the truth. Many doctors, like most other people, take the path of least resistance, and just believe what they are “taught,” even when they are being instructed by entities who have a heavy financial interest in what they are training their students to believe.

      Here are some quotes from some real doctors, who made their own observations and did their own in-depth research, apart from the monied party line. There are so many more, but I’m sure there is a limit on how much text can be in a comment.

      Dee Blanco, D.V.M – “You take healthy animals and often very quickly after you vaccinate, you can see simple things like itching of the skin or excessive licking of the paws (right photo), sometimes even with no eruptions and licking of the air. We see a lot of epilepsy/seizure, often after a rabies vaccination. Or dogs or cats can become aggressive for several days. Frequently, you’ll see urinary tract infections in What Vets don’t tell you about Vaccinescats, often within three months after their [annual] vaccination. If you step back, open your mind and heart, you’ll start to see patterns of illness post-vaccination.” See vaccinosis symptom of severe inflammation of the tail.

      Dr. Charles E Loops DVM – “The first thing that must change with routine vaccinations is the myth that vaccines are not harmful. Veterinarians and animal guardians have to come to realize that they are not protecting animals from disease by annual vaccinations, but in fact, are destroying the vitality and defense systems of these same animals they love and care for. Homeopathic veterinarians and other holistic practitioners have maintained for some time that vaccinations do more harm than they provide benefits. Vaccinations represent a major assault on the animal’s immune system…. Vaccine induced chronic diseases range from life-threatening conditions such as auto-immune crises to conditions destroying the quality of life of an animal as in chronic skin allergies.”

        Vaccines contain toxins and carcinogens. Many doctors refuse to receive human vaccines or allow their family members to receive them. There is a direct connection between vaccinations and autism.

      • pennysdachshund says:

    • Sue says:

      Michelle, I have, indeed (in 45 years of rescue, foster, and activism) seen dogs dogs get parvo and distemper, and the vast majority of them had been “up to date” on vaccinations. When, on two occasions, I brought home dogs who had been fully vaccinated at the pound, they came down with distemper within a couple of weeks of taking them in. They joined a household which already contained several unvaccinated dogs. Vets were saying that if an unvaccinated dog comes into contact with a dog with distemper, they will, without a doubt, catch it, and most likely die. Just the opposite occurred. The vaccinated dogs got the distemper, and the unvaccinated ones did not “catch” it from them. A fellow rescuer took in a litter of 4 pups, got them all vaccinated, and within 2 months, all of them had parvo, and two of them died. I had one dog who, after being spayed, had a lack of appetite for a couple of days. The vet took a blood test, in addition to other tests, and was surprised to find that the blood test showed she had parvo. No symptoms besides a loss of appetite, which came back very quickly.

      The people who just argue instead of looking into it (except for the pharma shills, and they are out there in force, too) are missing important information that can keep their animals healthy. Vaccines contain nothing healthy – just toxic chemicals mixed with biological waste products.

      Can an unvaccinated dog get a disease? Yes, and especially when their water and food quality is poor, they’re stressed and/or their environment is not the best. What I have observed over several decades is that when all other factors are EQUAL (quality of food, water, environment, etc.) many more of the vaccinated will contract the diseases, plus the myriad of “adverse effects” that include cancer/leukemia, auto-immune diseases, IBS, just to name a few that can occur that a lot of people don’t even know enough to connect the dots. Please read all the links. And there is so much more..

        Thank you for your helpful and accurate information. And thank you for caring enough about animals to do the right thing and not just follow the ill-informed crowd.

      • Rev. Dr. Yvonne Ray says:

        Pennysdachsund – Everyone who has ever lived will someday stand before Almighty God and give an account for their lives. We will all know the truth then. The King James Bible – God’s very words and his instruction manual for our lives – tells us that the vast majority of people will die unrepentant in their sins. There is no place or media inappropriate to be about the great commission as God has commanded us.

    This has to be one of the saddest situations,it’s so freaking IMMORAL do kill animals like way too many shelters do! This dog is absolutely gorgeous and because of some human somewhere this is now his reality! He deserves to live his life the same as all the rest of us. I’m heartbroken for this dog!

    Carson “SO=Called Shelter for Animal’s ” should be closed down, or taken over by an organization that REALLY IS vested in Helping Animals survive and find home… This place is a death chamber , by either euthanizing immediately, or allowing the dogs housed there get Kennel Cough, Parvo, and other serious illnesses The didn’t have upon arrival there …. A Torture Chamber at BEST … So sorry for this fellow 8 is certainly OLD…

    • Nancy Raymond says:

      You hit the nail right on the head Pennysdachshund – these crummy so called ‘shelters’ take in animals and DO NOTHING to help them – if it weren’t for volunteers these dogs/cats would languish and then be killed. There is no medical attention, no interaction, and no action to get them adopted. These places are no more than Death Chambers. The animals deserve MUCH better.

    • pennysdachshund says:

      So thankful::: I watched the Pathetic video with mucus dripping from his nares and the lethargic look he had and it saddened me THAT in THIS CENTURY PLACES like CARSON in GARDENIA ( the name doesn’t fit the setting that’s for SURE)! CALIFORNIA can’t OR won’t do more the help keep those poor dogs from Kennel Cough, Parvo ,Distemper , instead of running them thru like a SLAUGHTER HOUSE!!!
