Every Pet Deserves A Good Home…

Pets Being Left Behind to Starve by Their Families

Ill Have An Everything

By AskMarion

Many or us have pets that have lives like the one above.

But far too many have sad, horrible and unthinkable lives.

First there is the group of crazies and sickos, the abusers, who abuse animals, children, their mates, the elderly and anyone who comes in contact with them.  That group, in my opinion, should never be allowed to own an animal and should receive punishment equal to the crime(s) they commit.  And offenses committed against animals should get the same punishment as like crimes against humans.  Abuse is abuse and abuses know now bounds or limits.  If you suspect abuse, please report it or intercede.  Better to be wrong than look the other way and find out you were right later.

And then we come to the less obvious abusers, equally cruel and growing in number!  They are the selfish, often young people, who think animals are toys and fashion accessories; the owners you give their pets up because they no longer fit their needs or into their lifestyle; and finally the worst who are those who leave their pets and animals behind to starve and die a cruel death… without food, water and in all alone. (In my perfect world the last group would left to die in the same manner that they left the helpless creatures that were in their charge… should have been part of their family.)  And many of these heartless people leave their family pets behind, rather than finding them a new home or least taking them to a rescue or shelter or calling animal control and allow their children to see (or realize) their parent’s cruelty.

We are all God’s creatures and you can bet that these people will pay later, but it is each or our responsibilities to help prevent these situations and report and abuse or potential abuse.

There are three types of people:  Those who love animals and take care of them until their natural passing as if they were part of their family, family members; those who like animals, treat them well but not like family members, but always to at least the right thing for the pets and animals in their charge; and then there are the abusers which include the ‘emotionally disabled’ who leave their pets and animals to die instead of finding them a new home or help.

Why not advertise or ask around for people to adopt your pet?  Why not take them to a shelter or a rescue?  Why not call Animal Control?  And worst of all why leave them tied up or locked in a house where the can’t leave or escape without food or water. (BTW that is illegal, inhumane and surely will guarantee you a spot in Hell!?!)

Please join the fight to prevent, stop and intercede in all types of cruelty and abuse and better yet if it is suspected and can be prevented in advance, sound the alert.

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!
