Every Pet Deserves A Good Home…

And the Verdict is… GUILTY!! YES!!!

CasperAt the end of November, 2008, this dog, Casper, starved to near death, plus several other sick, neglected dogs were found at the home of Wilmer Fernandez, 34 and Aixa Rodriguez, 33. Although Fernandez and Rodriguez lived in a nice house in Carrolwood, FL, had a Cadillac and Lexus sitting in the driveway, nice furniture and possessions in the house, they claimed they had no money to feed or care for their pets.

Casper, a 9-month-old Boxer when found, weighed only 32 pounds when he should have weighed 60-80 pounds. He’d had no water for at least three days based on a vet’s testimony and the starvation had been ongoing, he also had skin problems.

Charged with felony animal cruelty, Fernandez and Rodriguez said they didn’t have any money, they said they fed Casper twice a day but because of some mysterious illness he kept losing weight, they said he kept turning his water bowl over which is why he was dehydrated to near death, they said they tried to treat his skin problems with OTC shampoos and treatments, they said they were loving pet parents.

This story and the related posts here are only the tiniest fraction of the abuse to animals that is everywhere.  It is our duty as loving human beings and fellow creatures created by God to stand up for them… and to do so proactively!!  We need to change the laws everywhere and increase the penalties for animal abuse.  But before it even gets there, like with child abuse or any abuse, we need to intercede as soon as we have the slightest incling that there could be a problem.  Better a false report and dropped charges than a ongoing abuse!!  And for me, if I see actual abuse, not that I recommend this, I go over there and stand up to the abuse or rescue the abused myself if I witness a problem.

Each one of us needs to follow out conscience!  We also need to change the ridiculous restrictive laws of only one or two pets allowed… especially in todays environment.  We need to stop euthenizing animals that are healthy and either take care of them  in decent facilities and allow willing pet parents to Adopt Just One (or Two More Pets).  Nobody is advocating the hoarding of pets and animals!!  But for those that love pets, taking care of 3, 4 or 5 pets is a blessing, not a burden and completely doable!
