      Prayers don’t do anything but make the person feel as though they actually did something. What helps is the vet who went to college for 8 years and the people who donate $$.

        Prayers do help and the person actually did do something. If you don’t believe in God or prayer, that sounds like a personal to me.

    When are people going to be punished for their abhorrent actions to animals. Many times we know who has committed the offense but they get a slap on the wrist or nothing. Perhaps if there was some consequences for doing this a few would think twice. Its just beyond despicable and cruelty to animals, no punishment!?????

    I hope and pray the owner steps in front of a bus and that she is tossed over to the side of the road still alive and people and their lives just go on around her, what a heartless pos.

    Who found the dog in Stacey’s back yard? What was someone doing there? If the dog was on her property what right do others have to step on it? If it’s the owners dog doesn’t the owner need to be asked if they can take it?

    How could anyone just throw their pet away. They dont deserve to have animals. Please prosecute these people and not allow them to have animals again.
