Every Pet Deserves A Good Home…

What the Human Society Does

Izzy

Izzy weighed in at only 53 pounds when her owner was reported to a local humane society.


Izzy DID  Find a Loving Home

Today, Izzy is thriving in her loving new home, where her devoted owners hand-feed her yogurt to aid her digestion.

Izzy had been cruelly barricaded in a filthy garage. The floor was covered in trash and dark, runny feces – a sign of malnutrition. There were no windows or ventilation of any kind… and no food or water dishes.

Izzy was barely alive. As soon as Lisa (a humane officer and president of the local humane society) opened the garage door, the emaciated dog staggered out and collapsed. Her gums were white, her eyes were sunken, and her bony body was covered in fleas and ants.

Please support the Humane Society and the ASPCA and even more important be pro-active against all abuse and neglect, whether against animals, children the elderly or anyone.  It is not okay to look the other way if you see, suspect or are aware of abuse in any form.  We are all God’s Creatures and the concept of owning a living creature does not supersede the natural laws of helping and standing up for one another!!

Changes need to be lobbied for and enacted for much tougher laws and stricter enforcement against animal abuse and neglect.  If you are an animal lover, please make that crusade a part of your New Year’s goal~

Abuse is everywhere.  And if you aren’t part of the solution… you are part of the problem!!

Father Arrested for Allegedly Killing Family Dog in Front of Children

A Wisconsin man has been arrested for allegedly killing the family dog in front of his children. After an 11-year-old drew a picture at school, his father now faces felony charges in Waukesha County. 52-year-old Michael Tessmer will appear in Waukesha County Court on Thursday.

Authorities found out about what happened after the man’s son drew a picture of a dog at school along with the phrase “My Dad Is A Killer”. The boy told police his father was angry because the dog had relieved itself inside the home. Police say Tessmer shoved a urine soaked paper towel in the dog’s mouth then kicked it five or ten times.

The boy’s mother who is getting a divorce from Tessmer brought the dead dog to the Humane Society. If Tessmer is convicted he could be fined ten thousand dollars and get three and a half years in jail.

If this father truly did this I hope he gets the maximum sentence as well as extended probation that includes long-term required psychological counseling!!  I also think someone really needs to look  at ‘only  supervised visitation’ with his children and Michael Tessmer should be restricted from owning or working with animals ever again. There is no justification, explanation or excuse for his actions!!  Many serial killers and batterers of all kinds started with harming, torturing or killing animals.  This type of behavior should not be tolerated or excused in any way and should always be reported!

It is everyone’s responsibility to stand up,  intervene and report violance and abuse ofany kind toward animals, children and all victims no matter how small or how heinous.  It is the only way it will stop!  You can bet that this isn’t the first and only time this man has been abusive and violent and this would have been prevented if someone had stood up to him or reported him before.  I also must wonder about the accuracy of this story.  If the wife had taken the abused and murdered dog to the Humane Society why had they not reported it to the police?

As the saying goes…  You are either part of the solution or part of the problem!! Let us all always be part of the solution!!
