Sheriff’s deputy finds puppy tossed into dumpster and left to die

A nine-month-old puppy was discovered by a Broward County Sheriff’s deputy on Tuesday in a dumpster where the  frightened pooch was left to die.

Charles Young, a deputy with the county’s K-9 unit, had been driving near Hillsborough Boulevard in Deerfield Beach when he received a tip about the German shepherd and beagle mix inside of a dumpster. When Officer Young pulled up, he saw the soaking wet puppy huddled in the corner lying on top of a pile of garbage.

“Somebody with no feelings, somebody I would not call a human being,” the officer told CbsNews  describing whoever abandoned the pup. “He’s just a happy sweet dog, all he wanted to do was play. He’d jump on me and give kisses and just be a happy dog.”

The only lead authorities have is the color of the driver’s car as black or dark blue.

The puppy is now in the care of the Tri-County Animal Rescue in Boca Raton. He is being treated for hookworms and needs to gain weight, but is expected to be available for adoption in a few days. The adorable pooch has been named Oscar. If interested in adopting this boy, please call 561.482.8110.

Many thanks to Officer Young who admits to having nine dogs of his own including his K-9 partner Brady.

Smile break: Which dog ate owner’s shoe?

Need a smile break?  Check out this adorable video filmed in Worcester County, Massachusetts on Sunday. It seems a woman is interrogating her dogs to find out who the culprit is that ate her shoe while the family was away from home.

 

The woman addresses each dog separately; we’re talking about equally guilty looking pooches named Kady and Monroe. It takes a moment or two for the guilty pooch to really look guilty. Sometimes no words are needed. Check out Kady whose owner can be heard in the video:

“Kady can’t hide her guilt.”

Check out the video from MsnNews. Hope you had a smile break.

City council meeting discussion over NYC “death row dogs” – read more here

Dog bites woman on the NYC subway after abusive argument

In what has been described as an abusive argument, a dog bit a woman’s foot on the NYC Number 4 subway train in Manhattan. The New York City police are searching for the owner of the dog.

According to the Daily News, witnesses stated the woman asked the owner to move his dog when it accidentally bumped her on a seat. The woman, not waiting for the dog’s owner to respond, repeatedly pushed the dog off the seat near her. The man then pushed the woman. When the woman hit the man back, the protective dog responded and bit into the woman’s sneaker.

The video shows the crowd yelling as the dog refused to let go. The woman took off her sneaker and the dog finally released it. The man and dog left. An eyewitness during the entire situation posted the video on his Facebook:

“ahSyi Kyn

#Dog was NOT VICIOUS PRIOR.. ONLY UNTIL AFTER THE FIGHT STARTED”

The New York City’s Metropolitan Transit Authority pet dogs must be in a carrier. Leashed service and emotional support animals are allowed to ride the subway with their owners with no restrictions. Most small dog owners ride with their pets in portable carriers. Those owning medium sized dogs and large dogs have become more creative, but why not follow the rules and avoid situations like this?

Questions about NYC’s animal shelters dogs on ‘death row’

In a New York City Council meeting on Tuesday, members demanded answers to how long pets are kept before they are placed on “death row.” Every night at approximately 6:00 p.m., the dogs and cats allegedly sick or aggressive scheduled to die at 1:00 p.m. the following day, are listed. Every night, non-profit groups tells their stories hoping to find the dogs and cats last minute reprieves.

“Urgent” was created to help advocate for NYC’s death row dogs at NYC ACC. What started as a desperate attempt to save some dogs turned into an enormous community of caring people, just as outraged as we are. Together, we are fighting to reform the NYC shelter system and save the thousands of adoptable animals being needlessly destroyed each year. The battle is long and the list of casualties continues to climb but we will not give up… not until there are none,” has become the mission of Urgent Death Row Dogs.

Changes from Animal Care Centers have recently been launched:

“As of March 2018, the NYC ACC started posting all TO BE DESTROYED animals to their Facebook page. Based on this attempt to highlight the “at risk” animals, Urgent has stopped posting the animals to this folder. Instead, we will be offering direct links to the NYC ACC’s website and Facebook page where you can view all animals on the list to be destroyed. We encourage everyone to share, comment and pledge directly on their posts. Click here to learn more…”

According to the New York Post, Tuesday’s meeting discussed many problems with the “death row” list at Animal Care Centers,  including procedures and protocols put forward to decide which pets would be euthanized the next day and the trouble would-be adopters have trying to save one of these pets. Animal advocates have criticized many of the cats and dogs wrongly evaluated to be dangerous – thus only allowing “New Hope” rescue organizations to save them.  At times, videos of the dogs interacting with volunteers and other dogs are shown playing and acting respectfully and peacefully. And the trouble to successfully rescue the dog within the mandated 18-hours is not enough time before the dog is euthanized.

Manhattan Councilman Keith Powers addressed Animal Care Center CEO Risa Weinstock, asking the time period an animal spends at the shelter before being placed on the kill list. Weinstock was not able to provide a definitive answer and responded with, “It’s an individual determination.” Weinstock stated that 7% of animals taken into the shelters wind up on the kill list and have 18 hours to be adopted before they are euthanized. She added that any animal that is healthy and has a good temperament has no time limit at the shelter.

Before the dogs are placed on the kill list, they are evaluated by staff using the dog’s known history and a SAFER assessment test. Experts doubt the accuracy of the results and such close quarters admittedly can turn the sweetest dog into an aggressive mess. Many of the dogs could do better if they were placed in homes. Crowded conditions and the overall stress on the animals at the shelter  adds to the unreliability of the testing in some cases, and that winds up in the death of a dog who could have become someone’s beloved and gentle companion.

Additional problems are the amount of pets that get sick in the shelter and wind up on the kill list; even animals coming down with the benign kennel cough that can easily be treated with antibiotics, can wind up on the “At Risk” list. The New York Post revealed that over 300 groups called “New Hope Partners” helping the NYC shelters, only 55 rescue partners can help to pull dogs off the list; only 16 answered their phones.

In 2000, the City Council passed a law mandating every borough in the city have at least one shelter. That bill never made it, and now Queens Councilman Paul Vallone introduced the bill again.

Today’s death row dogs  can be found here. Directions to help are included.

Justice demanded: Owner watched dog suffer day after day

Justice has to prevail in another heartbreaking case of animal cruelty in South Texas. Rescue Dogs Rock NYC helped to rescue Cami from her tormented life on Monday; her owners watched their nameless dog suffer day after day.

When her story of abject neglect began is unknown, but as her medical condition spiraled to near death, neighbors rallied animal advocates in the area begging for help.

“Skin and bones and never fed by her owners,” wrote co-founder of the rescue organization, Stacey Silverstein. “Her skin is like cement from pure and utter neglect for months, hairless! She has one of the worst cases of mange we have ever seen in our years in rescue.”

Neighbors had tried to feed Cami and watched with tears in their eyes as the loyal dog would take cover in a well just to escape the harsh weather outside where she lived. Often she would lie on the front mat of her home, and she thought her owners loved her. Never was she allowed in  the house.

“What a pathetic and sad existence of this ‘no name dog’ ,” Stacey added on Facebook Tuesday morning. “Finally the neighbors couldn’t stand looking at her anymore and called a fellow rescuer for help, who in turn, asked us to help.”

And now Cami’s story is perhaps even more heartbreaking as her callous owners watched from their living room window as dog fought not to leave her horrible home; obviously thinking this was her family even though they treated her like trash.

Cami has been transferred to the organization’s veterinary partners and is now receiving life saving treatment. This dog’s nightmare is over.  A complaint has been filed with the local sheriff’s office and all veterinarian records will be forwarded to prove the dog’s severe neglect.

Everyone cried when dog was surrendered, but ‘Ice’ will suffer the most

It was on Saturday when a friendly two-year-old American bull dog named “Ice” was surrendered by his owner to the overcrowded San Bernardino City Animal Shelter. Ice’s owner brought him to the shelter because the dog was no longer allowed to live in the apartment. Yes, the owner cried, but what about Ice? A shelter volunteer was in the lobby of the shelter moments before Ice was left behind.

“OWNER SURRENDER. Ice’s best friend brought him to the shelter today. His human cried. Ice was crying. It was a mess. Ice is a good boy, who needs a stable home.”

Click here for Ice’s Pet Harbor listing. “My name is Ice and I am an unaltered male, white American Bulldog mix. Shelter staff think I am about 3 years old. I have been at the shelter since Apr 21, 2018. For more information about the adoption process,
click here: Animal Control. Note that the last adoption will start at 4:30 pm. For more information about this animal, call:
San Bernardino City Animal Control at (909) 384-1304. Ask for information about animal ID number A513378.”

Surrendered dogs have no required hold period and thus can be humanely euthanized at any time.

Check out this boy’s video and help Ice find a loving home.

Share Ice’s story and photos with friends, family, approved rescued organizations and social media contacts. Sharing saves lives. We do not always know the full story why dogs are surrendered. It is asked that animal advocates use their energy to help this dog find a safe foster or permanent home.

Dog was like a statue after being covered in tar – read the story here.

Dog completely covered in tar stood as a statue until he was rescued

A neighborhood dog, covered in tar, stood like a statue in Kottayam, India on Thursday after political rivals had poured barrels of tar on the road in the city to disrupt traffic. The tar spread along the busy thoroughfare and melted under the heat of the afternoon sun.

According to the MathrubhumiNews, the dog named Appu, had just been in the wrong place at the wrong time and fell right into the tar. Repeatedly he tried to get up, but each time fell again while more tar stuck to him. When he was exhausted and finally gave up, he just stood in the middle of the road like a statue.

Neighborhood residents brought the dog to a veterinary hospital in Kidimatha and referred the pup’s plight to Friends of Animals Kottayam (FRANK). For 56 hours, the hospital staff used sunflower oil to remove the tar, and while Appu writhed in agony as his skin came off with the tar, he remained calm.

Appu is still in serious condition and suffers from bad wounds. It is hope he will recover from his injuries soon.

Check out his video:

“When Appu fell in tar we have been busy cleaning him for 2 days now! Thanks to our volunteers Bijil, Shwetha & Sunitha he is out of harm. Will share the full story when he is ready! ‭To volunteer at FRANK contact‬ ‭us ‬on 9745250670‬‬. We always have plenty of things to do.”

Elderly dog kept lost child safe from harm

An elderly dog is being hailed a hero for keeping a lost child safe from harm. According to multiple sources, 17-year-old Max, a blue heeler, stayed by the side of three-year-old Aurora, who got lost on rural property in Queensland on Friday afternoon.

As reported by the Express U.K., little Aurora could not be found on Friday, despite a widespread search. She was missing throughout the rainy night, but on Saturday morning the break searchers were desperately hoping for came when the child’s voice could be heard at the top of a mountain.

As searchers walked towards the girl’s voice, they met up with old Max, the deaf and partially blind dog who had stayed by the young child through the night. Max led searchers directly back to the lost little girl, who “smelled of dog” and had obviously been comforted by Max throughout her time away.

The Queensland Police Service has hailed the elderly dog a hero, writing:

SUCH A GOOD BOY, MAX! He stayed with his three-year-old human last night whilst she was lost near Warwick. For keeping her safe until she was found, you’re now an honorary police dog! 🐶

Colorado couple alleged to having sex with dog in backyard ‘chamber’

A Colorado couple has been alleged to having had sex with their family dog, using their backyard motor home has a special sex “chamber.”  Frederick Blue Manzanares, 50 and his ex-girlfriend Janette Solana, 48, were arrested and face numerous counts of animal cruelty.

According to the Mercury News, an investigation began when the Aurora Police Department were notified concerning a domestic dispute. When authorities met Solana at a nearby gas station, she told the police officer she and Manzanares had an argument and he had been pressuring her to have sex with their Siberian husky dog named Bubba. Manzanares had been researching bestiality and insisted Solana keep an open mind.

Manzanares allegedly built a customized bench with padding to facilitate the sex acts with Bubba including spraying a hormone on the dog to arouse him. Police seized photos and videos of the couple and the dog having sex. Solano told police she had become “somewhat jealous” of her boyfriend’s relationship with the dog.

Each face four misdemeanor counts of cruelty to animals, neglect and/or mistreatment.  In Colorado, bestiality is included in animal cruelty crimes. Additional charges are still pending.

Bubba has since been removed from the home.
