Meet Smokie; his time has run out at the shelter in San Antonio, Texas. This sweet five-year-old pup had been surrendered by his owner with an embedded collar, possible tetanus infection and appeared to be emaciated.

      Because it’s in TEXAS where they PRIDE THEMSELVES on the MOST SADISTIC ABUSE and TORTURE of animals and HUMAN beings on a DAILY basis. THEY LOVE to BEAT, RAPE, TORTURE, STARVE, and CUT the THROATS of INNOCENTS. That’s why.
