Every Pet Deserves A Good Home…

Dog Rescued from Trash Pile

Have you seen this video from last month showing a dying dog living in a trash pile in L.A.? The video’s notes say that the dog had been living there for months– why would the people who knew that not call for help months sooner?!!

Video: A homeless dog living in a trash pile gets rescued, and then does something amazing!

Miley

Miley is now doing great now. buy this type of thing is happening to America’s pets more and more. In Detroit alone, there are 50,000 or more abandoned dogs roaming the streets, living in vacant homes and reverting to dangerous pack behavior…  adding just another aspect to the crisis in that city.

The fact that we euthanize three to four MILLION dogs and cats a year according to the Humane Society says a lot about our country and us as people. Essentially means nationwide, about half of the dogs and cats in animal shelters are put to death mostly because of human laziness and irresponsibility.

Innocent puppies and kittens, dogs and cats, and other animals are being set in a gas chamber to choke to death or given lethal injections. They haven’t done anything wrong and have no idea why they’ve been abandoned and sentenced to die.

It is time that we do a better job of matching animals with homes, encouraging people to adopt an extra pet and developing a better foster system as well as spay and neutering our pets. In some areas we animals are still allowed to roam freely. And if you know of animal neglect or abuse, or even suspect, report it or step in. If you see a loose dog, help it. And helping our friends, neighbors and family look out for their furry family members, especially during tough times. is something we can all do!

Thank God Miley was rescued, but there are millions more who need our help… millions of dogs, cats, animals of all kinds will be rounded up, stuck in cages, and then put to death after a few humans peeked into their cells for a second but passed them by. Or perhaps no one stopped by at all.

We need to stop the abuse and needless killing of pets, animals of all kinds, as well as human babies in America!

‘Miracle’ dog that survived gassing headed to Rose Parade

Daniel the shelter dog who refused to die gets his own float at California parade after warming nation’s heart by emerging from pound’s gas chamber wagging his tail

  • Daniel was put in box filled with carbon monoxide with 17 other dogs
  • Survival prompted workers to name him after biblical character, Daniel, who survived lion’s den
  • Will star at the Rose Parade on New Year’s Day in Pasadena, California

NEWARK, N.J. –  Things are coming up roses for a scrappy beagle from New Jersey who survived a dog pound gas chamber.

Daniel will be among eight shelter dogs riding on a float in the Rose Parade on New Year’s Day in Pasadena, Calif.

Daniel was 6 months old when he was slated to be euthanized in 2011 at an animal control facility in Florence, Ala.

He surprised workers by emerging unscathed from a container that had been filled with carbon monoxide.

Daniel has been living happily ever since with his adopted family in Nutley, N.J.

He’ll perform tricks with other animal shelter survivors on a parade float sponsored by the Lucy Pet Foundation, which runs a mobile spay and neuter clinic.

The miracle dog that wagged its tail after surviving a gas chamber, warming the nation’s heart, has been given his own float at a New Year’s Day parade.

Daniel, a beagle mix named after the biblical figure who survived the lion’s den, was six months old when he was placed with 17 other dogs into a stainless steel box in Alabama filled with carbon monoxide.

Now, at the age of two, the animal – described as ‘one of the most joyous, happy dogs’ – is to star in the Rose Parade, held in Pasadena, California, which is one of the United States’ biggest celebrations.

After Daniel survived his gas chamber in Florence, Alabama, he was adopted by Joe Dwyer from New Jersey

The box which Daniel was put in to, roughly the size of a pickup truck bed, was filled with carbon monoxide – however Daniel emerged frightened but unscathed, still wagging his tail after the scary experience.

Following the media storm that ensued Daniel the ‘miracle’ dog was immediately adopted by Joe Dwyer, a motivational speaker from Nutley, New Jersey.

Mr Dwyer described Daniel as 'one of the most joyous, happy dogs I've ever met in my life'

‘He’s in extremely good shape, especially in light of what he went through,’ his new owner Joe Dwyer, 50, said when he got his dog.

‘His attitude is just incredible.’

His owner said Daniel’s story of survival and thriving has prompted laws in 31 states that protect shelter animals against inhumane forms of euthanasia.

Daniel, who will be on the float along with seven other dogs, will perform his ‘high five to keep pets alive’ trick and perform with his companions.

The float is sponsored by the Lucy Pet Foundation, which runs mobile spay, neuter and adoption clinics across the United States.

Mr. Dwyer said Daniel has been chosen as a ‘spokesdog’ for the organization.

‘He’s definitely one of the most joyous, happy dogs I’ve ever met in my life,’ his owner said.

‘I think his positive attitude is why he’s survived.’

The popular Rose Parade is known and watched across the United States.

It has been running for nearly 125 years and hundreds of thousands of people visit Pasadena for the show each year.

Adopting Military Dogs

American Thinker: Those that were chosen to defend America, upon retirement, need a family to love. The military has a great adoption program for their military dogs. American Thinker had the privilege to interview Shane Larsen, who is the military working dog adoptions coordinator. He is a former Air Force staff sergeant who was an instructor and trainer at the Lackland Canine School as well as a former handler.

The adoption program originated in November 2000 as a result of the “Robby Law,” preventing the euthanization of four-legged warriors. Robby, a Belgian Malinois dog was euthanized even though his handler made every effort to adopt him. Although this law did not save Robby, it specifies that the military dog can and should be adopted. Those first in line are any of the former handlers, next in line are law enforcement agencies, and finally qualified families.

The dogs up for adoption are either those that did not pass the rigorous certification process to become a military working dog, a training dog that no longer could perform, or those that have been in combat with some medical issues. A family gets dog that has been spayed or neutered, while only having to incur a cost of the collar, leash, and transportation fees. Anyone adopting must go to the base where the dog is stationed and pick them up in person after going through a face-to-face interview with Larsen and the dog. Larsen noted, “Those dogs that do not meet the standards is due to behavioral and environmental issues, where they are unable to handle their job. However, before a dog is put up for adoption many different people evaluate them. If they are put up for adoption, I consider it an honor that I am the one responsible to find a home. You have to be a dog lover to work in this field.”

Ninety to ninety-five percent of the former handlers adopt their partner. The home base handles the adoption with Lackland being the middleman who signs off on the paperwork. The kennel master at the home base is the one to notify the previous handlers that the dog is in the adoption program. It is not hard to find the handler since, according to Larsen, “There is a list of every handler who ever worked with the dog so they can be tracked down.”

The average age for those retired is about 9 years, while the average age for those who do not make it through the training program is 16 to 18 months. Since most law enforcement agencies will not take a dog over the age of four there are a lot of older adult dogs available. Lackland Air Force Base in Texas has the largest volume of dogs, in the hundreds. But, if someone does not want to travel there, they can try adopting from a base near them since “where ever there are dogs there will be adoptions.”

How does the process work if someone is interested? The DOD has come a long way since the “Robby Law.” There is a lot of scrutiny that goes into someone being selected. A person must fill out a detailed application by hand or electronically. Since there are 500 to 600 applicants the wait period is an average of 12 to 18 months. One of the first questions is, “what is the ideal dog you are looking for?” In this case, the more specific someone is about age, sex, or breed the longer they may have to wait.

Through a rigorous screening process Larsen makes sure that people understand about the breed they are adopting. Since the wait period is long he uses it to his advantage by re-asking the questions during a face-to-face or phone interview and comparing that to the answers given on the application.

He told American Thinker that an important consideration is a person’s housing situation. “If they want a younger dog and live in an apartment what is their exercise program? Living on an upper floor of an apartment with only stairs is also not suitable for an older dog. Also, we usually will not adopt a dog out to anyone with children eight years or younger. Sometimes I will go through 20 to 25 applications to find the right person for a particular dog. We are very, very picky as to who will get a dog. A lot of people do not qualify.”

From time to time there are those adopters who realize they made a bad decision, but unfortunately once the adoption is finalized the dog is their responsibility and they must find the dog a new home. Thankfully, because of the scrutiny and the detailed explanations of what is expected “this usually does not happen. We make sure a very detailed medical history is given out as well as making the adopter aware of a particular condition, the commands the dog knows, and what are the preferred toys. In fact, the feedback I get from the adopters is that once you have a military working dog it is hard to get any other type of dog. There is no comparison regarding the passion, the bond, and the attachment these dogs show, which is why repeaters are willing to wait months.”

A military dog should be adopted because it is an act of kindness, although it may be on the part of the dog. Anyone who has adopted a military dog or plans on doing it will be able to pay back these four-legged warriors with the luxury of a loving home. Larsen said it best, “Those adopting will get a lifelong companion that has served their country and will form a bond like something they never had before.”

Detroit Grapples With Latest Crisis–Stray Dogs

Video: ACE – American Strays the Series

Detroit Is Going To The Dogs – Literally

JoshuaPundit: As Detroit continues to circle the drain, there’s yet another hazard to contend with – an estimated 50,000 stray dogs roaming the streets and vacant homes menacing residents and city workers.

To make it even more interesting, pit bulls dominate the dog packs, due to the popularity of the breed in the largely black city as watchdogs and for dog fighting.
Many of the dogs have simply been abandoned and left to fend for themselves as the owners move on, something uniquely cruel when it comes the Man’s Best Friend. The dogs often roam in packs and shelter in Detroit’s abandoned homes, where rats can also be hunted as a food source.

And the bankrupt city, as things stand right now, can’t really do much about it.

“With these large open expanses with vacant homes, it’s as if you designed a situation that causes dog problems,” said Harry Ward, head of animal control.
Ward has four officers to cover the 139-square-mile (360-square-kilometer) city seven days a week, 11 fewer than when he first took over animal control in 2008. He has one dog-bite investigator, down from three.

Back in July, the City shelters actually had to stop picking up stray animals for a month because the city hadn’t paid a service that hauls away euthanized animals for cremation at a cost of about $20,000 a year. The freezers were packed with carcasses, and pens were full of live animals until that bill was paid.

In some particularly bad areas, the U.S. Postal Service has had to temporarily halt mail delivery in some neighborhoods because of attacks by aggressive dogs, said Ed Moore, a Detroit-area spokesman. He said there were 25 reports of mail carriers bitten by dogs in Detroit from October through July.

Another problem is that many of the residents of Detroit who still remain and own dogs aren’t bothering to get them neutered, are not getting them their rabies or distemper shots and are simply letting them wander. There simply isn’t any budget to enforce these measures any more.

Yes, there are a number of jokes I could make here, but to tell you the truth, I feel sorry for the dogs. They at least did nothing to create this and deserve better.

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!!

Outlaw For-Profit "High-Kill" Animal Shelters – Sign Better Fed Than Dead Petition

We petition the Obama administration to: Outlaw For-Profit "High-Kill" Animal Shelters

Outlaw for-profit "High-Kill" animal shelters throughout the U.S.

For-profit “High-Kill” animal shelters across America kill as many animals as possible, lining the pockets of veterinarian’s associated with these inhumane “High-Kill” shelter enterprises and feeding the need for more taxpayer funding; all the while masking their “pay-per-kill” operations with an aura of humanity by establishing 30-day “waiting periods” before euthanization; a period all too brief to save most from certain death.

We seek to eradicate these “High-Kill” Animal Shelters throughout the United States and turn them into “No-Kill” Shelters.

We demand that the U.S. Government immediately outlaw these for-profit “High-Kill” animal shelters across America.
