WARNING! Cruelty, Brutality, Horrendous


I didn't want to put such horrible photos on my blog. But it is happening out there. I've seen some of it myself and I have photos of some of it so I can say it DOES HAPPEN!
We must educate and the only way to show you is to post these photos!
You can help:
* If you see a dog in trouble, injured, see one accidentally hit with a car...Please stop and take care of it or, at least, call animal control. I know, in this sue-happy, violent world we are all afraid to take responsibility when we accidentally hit a dog. I'm scared the owner will come screaming out to attack me or hit me with a lawsuit. But if you hit a dog and no one is around then, pick it up and take it to a Vet, pay for it's vet fees and let the vet's office notify the owner (if there are tags or microchip). Or, at least, call animal control. I've stopped for dogs hit by cars myself and they've been so terrified and hurt that they bite or attack. So I called Animal Control. Don't leave them there without help coming!
* Adopt a dog and give it a good, healthy, loved life. When that dog passes on, don't think you can't ever get another dog because it hurt your heart too much. Go immediately and adopt another dog! It will help heal your heart and it will provide one more poor dog a good home.
* Make donations to dog rescue groups or your local animal shelter (even if it's not money, you can donate time, old towels, dog food, toys, leashes, dog shampoos, sponsor dogs, etc)
* If you lose your dog, please put up flyers and contact your local shelters and vets. And remember that your dog may be a Beagle but the shelter may have it listed as a Terrier mix so physically go to the shelter every day to look.
* If you find a lost dog, check for tags and take it home. If no tags then take it to your local shelter.
* If you see a neglected dog, report it to animal control.
* Don't neglect your dog(s). Make sure your dog daily has good food, fresh water, is properly vetted, has sufficient shelter from heat and cold, exercise and socialization (with humans and/or other dogs), keep a collar with identification tags on them (and check the collar regularly so it doesn't get too tight or too loose), keep them safely in your own yard or house. If you have an underground fence...don't rely on that. Batteries go dead. And your dog may stay inside the underground fence, but it doesn't keep other animals or people out. Your dog could be attacked by a bigger dog or pack of dogs, stolen, or attacked by wild animals or birds.
* Report animal abuse. And report it again. And again, until someone does something. Don't give up.

Here are some of the photos of real animal cruelty!

This photo came across my dog rescue message board today.

"Sammy showed up as a stray about 10 months ago in Rains, SC. The family there started to feed him and he came around more regularly. He was a great dog that began to trust them and was around all the time. Two days ago he disappeared and when he returned this is how he looked. He has been tortured and both eyes have been punctured. He was taken to a doctor that thinks he was beaten so badly that his eyes burst. He was then taken to the Marion County Shelter to see if there was anything they could do for him. They recalled that someone had called and reported a dog wandering around for the last two days with it’s eyes bulging but no one followed up on it and he suffered for days. "

"This poor boy was brought to the shelter today by a good samaritan that found him and took him to the vet. The vet said someone beat him so hard that his eyes popped out of his head! Surgery to remove his eyes will be around $1,000 and obviously this is an expense they just cannot afford. They desperately want to keep this boy but need help with funds." -Marion County Animal Shelter

Update "A wonderful rescue has offered to step up to help Buddy, the poor boy that was beaten so badly that his eyes popped out of his head. We are so happy that he will be saved and treated." http://www.noahs-arks.net/RESCUE/SAMMY.html

"When Prince was less than 4 mths old, some cold hearted person took a welding torch, and burnt a 10" long 1 " deep line down his back. Then they set him off at a local dumpster to starve to death, or die from infection. When project paws found prince, he was weak, terrified, skinny, and in alot of pain. His wound had closed, but unfortunatly before it closed, alot of rocks, dirt & debree got stuck in there. This caused it to get infected and burst open. Prince had to have surgery, due to the infection. He had to have 13" cut out of his back, followed by hundreds of stitches & staples. Prince has since then healed very well. He is now 7 mths old, and is doing wonderful. He has been socialized, and is very sweet, and happy. He has alot of energy, and Loves to run! But Prince Charming is tired of being in a cage, and not knowing what a home is. He is ready for a family of his own!!! He is in Murphy, NC"

This Pit Bull was chained with a 20 lb weight around his neck to strengthen him for fighting! My God, have mercy!


I'm sorry you had to see this but you can't hide your head in the sand and pretend it doesn't happen! And, please, don't think that because I'm passionate about dog rescue, that I don't care about human beings. Cruelty, brutality, abuse is wrong for children, men, women, the elderly, AND animals. When someone is cruel to animals, they are only a hairsbreadth away from abusing human beings. They will abuse anyone who is vulnerable and and under their power. Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely! Ignorance is NO EXCUSE! In this day and age, there is no excuse for ignorance. Information is available easily.

I appreciate you took the time to try to spread the word for animals. I have been in the animal industry and have seen some bad stuff as well. There's no excuse for it. I will share your piece. It looks like your near us in Murphy NC. Best of luck and God Bless.
