It absolutely breaks my heart when I see and hear stories of animals being beaten, abandoned, tossed out of cars, drowned, tossed in the garbage like trash, starved to death and even neglected like the dog in this photo!
Recently in Lancaster, California, a lady failed to have her two dogs groomed as needed for an extended period of time. The dogs were so matted that they could not even walk. One of them tried to wag its tail when rescuers came to help but was unable to do so because it was stuck to one side and unable to move. You can read the whole story about these two happy pups by going to - http://www.huffingtonpost.com/carole-raphaelle-davis/cruelty-investigation_b_3627493.html.
The Huffington Post reports that this town in California is known for many cases of animal hoarding, neglect and abuse. Eyes seem to be closed to these problems but we need to help these poor creatures to live a better fulfilling life. Authorities, the ASPCA and the Humane Society need to get involved and be a voice for the animals that are so loving and caring yet being treated poorly.
Dear ASPCA and Humane Society - You have our full support in efforts to please have strictor laws about who can have an animal/pet, kennels, breeds and more. Eyes need to be everywhere so that other humans can step in and protect these animals that cannot protect themselves.
Please help us to help them. We need to take a stand for their welfare!
