Pair of helpless dogs launched into traffic on busy highway

On the outskirts of London near Hertfordshire, a pair of helpless dogs were launched from a car traveling 60 mph, into traffic on a busy highway Sunday evening. One dog was killed instantly after several vehicles, although they tried to swerve to avoid him, collided with the dog described as a hound breed.

According to the Mirror, the second dog, a Jack Russell terrier, somehow survived the horrible disaster  and was captured by a motorist who stopped to help. The dog was not microchipped and was turned over to animal welfare. The RSPCA has named the seven-year-old pup Tarmax. Miraculously, he managed to get to the side of the highway without any injuries.

Tarmax is now in a temporary foster home and will soon be made available for adoption.

Witnesses have not been able to provide a clear description of the vehicle nor its license plate numbers.

Anyone with information that may help AWO Warne and the RSPCA investigate the incident can call the RSPCA’s inspectorate appeal line number, in complete confidence, on 0300 123 8018.

Youngsters kick and kill mallard duck in brutal act of violence while laughing

Investigators for the RSPCA in Roundhills, Waltham Abbey, Essex are searching for three school boys – aged 11-13, who were seen attacking a drake mallard duck in what has been described as a “disgusting act of violence.” A passerby motorist stopped and confronted the youngster, still dressed in his school uniform, as the heartless kid kicked the bird to death before throwing its body into a neighboring garden.

According to the Hertfordshire Mercury News, RSPCA Inspector Rachel Smith called the torture of the duck “a barbaric attack on a defenseless duck.”  The organization has a good description of the boys and is hoping the public can identify them. The boy kicking the duck is white, with short brown hair, a slim build and was wearing a school uniform of dark slacks and a white shirt. The two other boys are of similar build, similar age, were wearing blue tracksuits and riding bicycles.

By the time the driver saw what was happening and went to give the bird aid, it had already died.

“The male mallard duck suffered extensive damage to his head, throat and face before he died as a result of this disgusting act of violence,” stated Inspector Smith.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the RSPCA at 0300 123 8018.

Granddaughter rescued pony online to granny’s shock when dumped in garden

In another “hard to believe this really did happen” situation, a grandmother was shocked when a neglected pony was delivered to the garden of her home after her 13-year-old granddaughter rescued the free pony advertised online.

According to the ITV Report, the young skinny and mite-covered colt was abandoned at the back of a home in Smallthorne, Stoke-on-Trent after the teen gave her grandmother’s address for delivery. When the grandmother discovered the pony, she didn’t know what to do and notified World Horse Welfare and the RSPCA for help.

“You couldn’t make this up!,” Charlotte Melvin of the RSPCA stated. “A 13-year-old girl responded to a plea on an online free ads site where a lad said she didn’t want money anymore and that he would be put to sleep if no one had him. She [the teen] gave her nan’s address and the next think that happened was a man just came along and dumped the pony there, no words of advice or anything like that – and leaving a very shocked nan.”

The RSPCA and World Horse Welfare are now asking for the public’s help to find out who is responsible for just abandoning an animal in someone’s garden.

Fortunately for the pony, now named Mr. Melvin Andrews, he has been transferred to the Penny Farm Rescue and Rehoming Center where he has already convinced everyone caring for him that he is a lovely little guy and there will be a home for him someday where no one will ever neglect or abandon him.

The RSPCA currently has 928 horses in their care – this year the number of rescued horses has reached a four-year high. Anyone with information is asked to call 0300.123.8018 or 08000.480.180.

Puppy suffered horrific injuries: Stoned owner bit puppy’s face

In North Tyneside, Newcastle, United Kingdom, a puppy suffered horrific injuries after his stoned owner bit the dog on his face multiple times. The eight-month-old Staffordshire Bull terrier, named Diesel, was seized by authorities after he was found with the terrible face injuries. When asked what happened to the dog, Tyler Laverick, 20, the dog’s owner replied:

“I was biting him. I was stoned.”

In addition, the puppy’s left side of his jaw was swollen, there was bleeding in the whites of his eyes, scratches and wounds on his ears and multiple wounds and scars to his front legs. A veterinarian, performing the examination on the dog, concluded the wounds to his head had been consistent with blunt force trauma and the injuries to his nose and ears were caused from bites.

“The vet believes that Diesel was suffering on the night of October 19,2017 due to injuries allegedly caused by his owner,” stated the prosecutor for the RSPCA.

Diesel has since recovered. It is not known if he remains with the RSPCA or if he has been adopted.

Woman threw shepherd out of car, kicked him and then tried to run him over

The RSPCA is asking for the public’s help identifying the woman witnessed by an onlooker of throwing a German shepherd out of her car, kicking the dog three times and then trying to run the pup  over with her vehicle in a Shropshire village. According to the RSPCA, the disturbing incident occurred in Eaton-on-Tern near Market Drayton.

Witnesses contacted the RSPCA and were able to capture the  dog after he escaped and ran away. The dog is now in the care of the RSPCA who have named him Seth. Animal Cruelty Inspector Vicki Taylor recounted the story telling the public that the dog was not seriously injured and had indeed been very lucky.

 “This is a shocking incident of animal cruelty. The dog is very lucky to not have been seriously injured. The female driver was seen clearly throwing the dog out of the car, kicking him three times in the stomach, before getting back in her car and trying to run the dog over – at which point the dog ran off.”

“This is no way to treat an animal. He was dirty and matted and a little scared following his ordeal but he is now getting a lot of love and affection from RSPCA staff,” Taylor continued.

The woman was seen driving a black Volvo car with a 60 number plate. The dog was not microchipped. Anyone with information is asked to contact the RSPCA at  0300 123 8018.

Pregnant dog abandoned in cage with her head stuck between bars

Over the weekend, RSPCA Officer Horton responded to an emergency call in Leatherhead, Surrey, United Kingdom. A passerby had spotted a pregnant dog abandoned in a cage at a bus stop, and her head had been stuck between the bars.

According to Express, the terrified blue merle collie had to be freed with bolt cutters. Had someone not called in for help, pregnant “Lucy” as the dog has been named, would have continued to suffer in the bitter cold.

“I think it’s disgusting to abandon any pet, but to dump a pregnant dog is disgraceful,” Animal Collection Officer Louis Horton stated. “She must have been so frightened and confused. She was shivering from the cold weather, and when I tried to remove her from the hazardous crate, she was frozen with fear.”

Lucy had no collar or microchip. She was transferred to a veterinarian clinic where an ultrasound confirmed she is seven weeks pregnant and appears to be carrying at least two puppies. She will be cared for by the RSPCA along with her puppies when they are born.

An animal cruelty investigation has been launched. Anyone with information is asked to contact the RSPCA at 0300 123 8018.

Terrified kitten rescued from brutal jaws of deadly rat trap

A terrified kitten was rescued earlier this week in Cambridge, United Kingdom, from the brutal jaws of a deadly rat trap which may have been set illegally.  Ten-month-old family kitty, Dobby had been caught in the spring-fired trap that had clamped shut on him. How he survived has been called a miracle; some how the trap had snapped only partially on his skull.

According to the Express, the gray and white rescue pet escaped without his windpipe being crushed or his skull fractured. In an old rusty device, worthy of a science fiction movie torture invention, had it not been for a Good Samaritan who alerted the RSPCA about the cat, Dobby would have never lived to make any of his seven remaining lives. The kitten had been previously rescued after having been kept in a basement where he and his litter mates  had never seen the light of  day.

The rat traps are legal, however they are not to be set anywhere near homes or where domestic pets wander.  Animal Cruelty Officer Amy Reiter rescued Dobby, and stated it took all of her strength to release the trap in order to free the scared kitty. Rushed to a veterinarian hospital, the cat was treated and his owners notified via his microchip.

“When I arrived the sight of poor Dobby was horrific – he was in absolute agony…X-rays showed that there were no broken bones but the trap has put a lot of pressure on his skull and his eyes so there may be more damage.”

The public is being asked to be vigilant about finding these traps. It is unknown if the trap was intentionally set to kill domestic pets in the area. According to the RSPCA, the old rusted trap had been repaired with new wire.

The kitten’s owners, Maria and Jan Mol, say their feline pal is doing better, but are not sure how his eyesight has been affected. Dobby also seems to be quite wobbly, and he could be suffering from neurological damage. Anyone with information about these traps is asked to notify the appeal line at 0300 123 8018.

Get well soon Dobby.

Terrified dog with broken leg abandoned on coldest night of the year

A terrified dog with a broken leg was abandoned in Cotesback, Leicestershire, United Kingdom in a wooded area on a very dark and lonely night as temperatures dipped below freezing. Fortunately, the sight hound was rescued in time; he was found curled up and shivering – hedges had been his only protection against the cold temperatures and wild predators.

According to the RSPCA investigator, Cara Gibbon, the short-haired brown and white pup was most likely dumped because his owner didn’t want to pay veterinarian charges for the dog’s broken leg.

“I have no idea how long he’d been there but it’s amazing, in this weather, that he was still alive especially as his breed has such a short coat and tends to be on the lean side. He was curled up in the frosty grass, shivering and trying desperately to keep warm. He must have been terrified.”

The ExpressCo. reports the dog was not microchipped, as is required by law, nor was he wearing a collar. Rescuers have no doubt the friendly pooch had been intentionally dumped. After a veterinarian examination, it was confirmed the dog suffered a broken leg, but once he recovers he will be ready to be adopted.

Now being loved and spoiled, the RSPCA staff decided this miracle pooch needed a special name. Meet Dom, who has been named after Dom Parsons, Great Britain’s first skeleton bronze medalist of the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang since 1948; a special name for a special pooch.

Anyone who may recognize this dog, know where he comes from or saw anyone suspicious in the area is asked to call the appeal line on 0300 123 8018.

Get well soon Dom. We wish you a speedy recovery and a long, loving new life.

Emaciated dog Leo found dead at cemetery stuffed in suitcase

An emaciated dog, identified as having been named Leo, was found dead in a suitcase under overgrown shrubs at Harehills Cemetery in Leeds, Great Britain, on Wednesday.

According to the Yorkshire Evening Post, RSPCA inspectors stated Leo, a four-year-old bull terrier, had suffered terribly before he died. Inspector Sarah Mason described the dog had been wrapped in a towel and crammed into the black suitcase.

“He was in a shocking state with almost every bone in his body visible. The collar he had around his neck was just hanging off him,” the inspector added.

The dog weighed 25 pounds – less than one-half of what a dog of his size, age and breed should have weighed. How Leo must have suffered experts agreed. The dog had been micro-chipped, but when his last known owner was notified, living more than 200 miles from where the dog was found dumped, the woman said she had re-homed her dog six-months prior using the Internet.

Inspector Mason is asking the public to help find Leo’s torturer. The dog was wearing a red leather Wainwright’s collar with white stitching. He had been wrapped in a light gray Hugo Boss towel. The suitcase was black with a silver logo in the shape of an infinity sign. The extended pulling handle was broken. Inside of the suitcase was a pair of women’s turquoise colored pants.

Anyone with information is asked to call the RSPCA hotline at 0300 123 8018. Help Leo find some justice. Nothing could be more tragic than this dog’s suffering. How could anyone be so callous?

Rest in peace Leo. We are so sorry humans failed you.
