One of the many dark tales coming out of Sochi is the revelation that Russian authorities have been executing stray dogs. US Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy plans to do something about it by saving them.
American Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy and Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska are doing their part to save the stray dogs in Sochi
Obviously, people were outraged when they heard about the killings. Oleg Deripaska, one of the wealthiest men in Russia, was so upset by this that he took it upon himself to save as many as he could. He used his fortune to build shelters for the strays in Baranovka, which is near Sochi.
Kenworthy expected to be on his way home with the pups by now but has been delayed by paperwork problems in Russia?!?
Some of the the dogs are being adopted by Olympics fans and heading to new homes. According to ABC News on Tuesday the process of American fans adopting a dog is being helped by the Humane Society International.
Outlining all the requirements for moving a dog from one country to another, it seems that finding a local Russian vet is the fastest way to get help in seeing if Fido can come home. Getting all the shots necessary for the pup to leave the country is the first step. Plus a kennel needs to be acquired for the flight of an animal if they are going to be shipped on an airplane. The process of owning a Russian dog might be costly with just the airplane ride being $150 for the canine’s travels to their new home.
Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska stepped in before the Olympics and opened a mountain refuge for some dogs to hang out, but the issue still isn’t resolved. Fans worry that after the athletes leave the dogs could be left out to roam again or worse.
Offering up assistance to help adopt dogs seems like a logical solution at the moment and if fans are willing to take a new four legged friend home, it might be the perfect answer to helping some of the dogs.

By Nicole Hayden – LSJ.com
Gannett Michigan: Logan’s Law, a package of four bills designed to fight animal abuse passed through the Michigan House of Representatives Judiciary Committee on Thursday.
“We are pretty excited about the bills being passed through the committee,” said Rep. Paul Muxlow, R-Brown City.
Muxlow sponsored House Bill 4534 of Logan’s Law. The bill stipulates that before someone can adopt a shelter animal, the shelter must use the Internet Criminal History Access Tool, which is a Michigan State Police database, to search for a history of child and spousal abuse and other violence.
The other bills include language that non-profits do not have to pay to access ICHAT; state police will prepare an annual report of animal abuse offenses; and convicted abusers cannot adopt an animal for five years after their time has been served.
The annual report will serve as a registry of animal abusers.
“This is a very big victory for Logan’s Law and for all of the animals in Michigan,” said Matt Falk, owner of Logan, a Siberian husky for whom the law was named.
In 2012, someone splashed Logan, who was in his outside kennel, with acid, Falk said.
“(Logan) liked to sleep outside because it was much cooler,” Falk, of Wales Township, said. “When I went to bring him inside in the morning, I noticed he had red burns on the right side of his face. We immediately rushed him to the vet.”
Falk said that it took four to five days to neutralize the acid.
The bills will now move to the Michigan Senate floor for a vote, then back to the House floor for a full vote before going to the governor to sign into law.
Falk said he hopes “the law will be signed by the summer or early fall of this year.”
Falk, along with House and Senate members, have work on passing the law for two years.
“There has been about 12 different bill numbers for the animal abuse registry all together,” Falk said. “Most of the original bills didn’t make it through the process.”
Falk said he wants to protect other animals from what his dog suffered.
“Logan lost his eyesight, and his sense of smell,” said Falk. “There was a time when his face was just melting off.”
Four months after the attack, Logan died.
“Through our investigations we found there is a lot of animal abuse,” said Muxlow. “There is much more animal abuse than we will ever know or assume of.”
If the bills pass, Michigan will be the first state to enact an animal abuse registry.
“This will be historic legislation,” said Falk. “The bills will set a precedence for other states to begin legislation for registries of their own.”

Local officials have cited "safety" for visiting guests as the reason for the mass killing; according to the publication, a company has been hired to do the dirty work.
Nightly, roaming dogs are captured in baited traps…then killed with poison.
Rescuers in the area are doing their best to get to the stray dogs first…they try to capture the dogs, get them sterilized and vaccinated, and ultimately adopted into homes.
Unfortunately, the number of un-sterilized, stray dogs makes the rescuers’ job difficult – new litters are constantly being born and the killing crews continue on with their dark, unsavory work.
According to USA Today, last April, the government had stated that they were backing off of their plans to kill an estimated 2,000 dogs, but it appears that the dirty work of killing has simply been transferred to a non-government agency.

Just like in China before the Olympics, animals are being killed and abused in Russia.

What is Wrong With People??
January 9, 2014
This has become an ongoing scenario during the summer and winter seasons.
Extreme weather, hot or cold, has threatened or claimed the lives of many animals left outdoors without proper shelter or provisions. We are constantly being warned of the dangers of exposure to these conditions, and are directed to bring our pets inside during these times.
Winter’s frigid temperatures bring frostbite, hypothermia, and possible death for animals. But despite the warnings, we continue to see reports of animals being forced to suffer and attempt to survive.
Ronald Eugene Haines’ dog wasn’t a survivor.
On Wednesday, January 8, around 1 p.m, his dog was found frozen to the floor of its doghouse behind Haines’ home on Front Street in Curtin Township.
Haines, 46, of Centre County, has been charged with cruelty to animals by state police.
Unfortunately, it’s legal in PA for pets to be kept outdoors as long as they have proper shelter, food, and water. But District Attorney Stacy Parks Miller states:
“When the weather gets this low, it’s against the law because you have to have adequate housing of your pet. When it’s this cold, it’s impossible to have housing that’s adequate.”
Haines was issued a ticket for a summary offense. If found guilty, he may face a few hundred dollar fine.
Investigators said neighbors called a state dog warden to report Haines. Miller said in the days leading up to the cold weather, numerous warnings were issued about the dangers of leaving pets outdoors.
“It’s proven what we’re saying. It’s a sad reminder why we’ve been saying it and I’m sad that we failed,” Miller said. “We were hoping to not see this happen."
We ask people to be vigilant and report abuse to your local animal control, police, SPCA, or humane society concerning any animal you find without proper shelter or provisions during extreme weather conditions. Your voice may be the one that saves the life of an animal in need of help.
Don’t delay or wait for someone else to do it — it might end up being too late.
I don’t know about you, but a few hundred dollar fine doesn’t cut it for me!!!

When atrocities happen or have continued to happen (like this one) for years, whether it is against women, children, the elderly, or animals, they reflect on all of us and on us as a culture and a society. And for those cold hearted souls out there that actually think an animal is property for their owner to treat and abuse as they wish, the realization is that animal abusers are often child, spousal, and elder abusers and bullies in general as well, who often get their start as animal abusers as a first step and then graduate to those crimes if they are not stopped!! Get-involved!! We are all God’s creatures and it is each of our responsibilities to stand-up for those weaker than we are or in all abusive situations.
“Hearts are heavy as we share the sad news that the male pit bull that was injured in a case of animal abuse last week has died. His condition was such that we could not ensure his quality of life, and we made the compassionate decision to euthanize him."
Capital Area Humane staff and volunteers did all they could to save him. But the male dog found in the Tamarack Circle neighborhood had severe injuries to his head and brain, thought to be caused by multiple blows to the head.
The Humane Society of the United States is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for beating the Columbus, Ohio pit bull.
Anyone with any information on the dog is asked to contact the Capital Area Humane Society at (614) 777-7387 ext. 250.

This is appalling on many levels but should worry every animal lover from that aspect alone. This is also not an isolated incident of excessive force used against animals and their owners!!
I am not getting involved in the entire event here… but I am concerned with the over-reaction and excessive force used against the dog!!

George Zimmerman was found not guilty in the murder of Trayvon Martin, and the decision has sparked outrage in some communities across America. Many feared that there would be riots, but instead of taking anger out on store fronts, at least one Trayvon Martin supporter has allegedly targeted animals.
At 6:38 a.m. on Sunday, a tweet went out from Tevon D’Sean Jackon that read, "RIOT4TRAYVON #JusticeForTrayvon OH SHIEETT.. TYRONE JUST BURNED THIS CAT.. WE CALLED HIM GEORGE AND BURNED HIM ALIVE.”
The tweet also includes a picture of the burned cat, which can be found below. Fair warning: the picture is somewhat graphic, but it is grainy enough that it is difficult to tell that it is even a cat at all. We featured it below.
The tweet has unsurprisingly sparked outrage from the Internet community. One user wrote, “you’re a worthless human piece of trash. Killing a cat to make a point literally makes you worse than the man you say is guilty.”
Another added, “ignorant piece of trash. Zimmerman should have popped you too.”
However, it is entirely possible that it’s all a big hoax in order to drum up drama. Tevon D’Sean Jackson’s current tweet reads, “#GNAA Vice President ~ #RIOT4TRAYVON #EDLRAPECREW, #cut4bieber, #SANDYLOOTCREW & #londonriots Celebrity.. proud /pol/ack.” The GNAA is the Gay N*gger Association of America, which is an anti-blogging trolling organization.
Of course, it is difficult to tell whether or not that really is a cat in the picture. Either way, it had its intended effect. Jackson’s Twitter page is filled with hundreds of angry tweets from other Internet users.
What are your thoughts? Does that picture of possible animal cruelty warrant an investigation from authorities, or is this just another example of Internet trolls adding fuel to the fire?
For me… this is an example of the ‘real’ disgusting human animal(s) torturing a poor defenseless animal. It certainly also diminishes any sympathy for the perpetrators cause. Time we put Tevon D’Sean Jackon on trial for 1st degree murder in my book!

Save a Life…Adopt Just One More…Pet!
Everyday we read or hear another story about pets and other animals being abandoned in record numbers while at the same time we regularly hear about crazy new rules and laws being passed limiting the amount of pets that people may have, even down to one or two… or worse yet, none.
Nobody is promoting hoarding pets or animals, but at a time when there are more pets and animals of all types being abandoned or being taken to shelters already bursting at the seams, there is nothing crazier than legislating away the ability of willing adoptive families to take in just one more pet!!
Our goal is to raise awareness and help find homes for all pets and animals that need one by helping to match them with loving families and positive situations. Our goal is also to help fight the trend of unfavorable legislation and rules in an attempt to stop unnecessary Euthenization!!
“All over the world, major universities are researching the therapeutic value of pets in our society and the number of hospitals, nursing homes, prisons and mental institutions which are employing full-time pet therapists and animals is increasing daily.” ~ Betty White, American Actress, Animal Activist, and Author of Pet Love

Great Book for Children and Pet Lovers… And a Perfect Holiday GiftOne More Pet Emily loves animals so much that she can’t resist bringing them home. When a local farmer feels under the weather, she is only too eager to “feed the lambs, milk the cows and brush the rams.” The farmer is so grateful for Emily’s help that he gives her a giant egg... Can you guess what happens after that? The rhythmic verse begs to be read aloud, and the lively pictures will delight children as they watch Emily’s collection of pets get bigger and bigger.

If You Were Stranded On An Island…A recent national survey revealed just how much Americans love their companion animals. When respondents were asked whether they’d like to spend life stranded on a deserted island with either their spouse or their pet, over 60% said they would prefer their dog or cat for companionship!
