A long time ago I wrote on Voice. I really enjoyed writing, but eventually I quit. Now I'm back and ready to write! You may have seen my first two posts (Cruelty Case Updates & Applause for Fighters of Animal Cruelty) and I hope you enjoy them. I worked very hard to find the information and write it out.
I'm sorry I have made a late introduction, but I'm sure you can forgive me. I also want to welcome the newest author, NatureFreak!
So with the new authors (including myself) I think we can make this blog the best it can be. Thank you authors of Voice, and I hope you welcome me with open paws!
The next thing I would like to write about (so I don't make this post pointless to my fellow fighters of cruelty) is some cruelty cases.
An investigation is going on who's victims are two abandoned pitbulls, another stuck to a five-foot chain, and several others. Investigators still aren't quite sure who left the dogs alone,but
they're doing their best to find out.
A neighbor claims that the owners had raised pit bulls and recently left, leaving eight or nine of them to roam on their own. One of them died and several others had run away. Two pitbulls that were left to die had no food or water. Good thing the police got there in time!
The neighbors also say that the last time they saw someone take care of the animals was November 11th.
To think that if they would have called sooner, the dogs could have been helped quicker. At least they decided to take action now!
Animal Control recently saved sixty dogs and a bird from dangerous, filthy conditions. They were left in a nasty environment that was infested with fleas and other vermin.
The owner was 65 and from the looks of it, she has a hoarding problem (most people with that many dogs do).
The vets took the dogs and bird to the vet and had them treated for numerous skin conditions caused by the unsanitary living conditions.
The officers earned custody of eight dogs and the bird, but also removed the others do to the environment the animals were basically slaves to.
Don't Be Afraid
If you know about animal cruelty happening near you and are afraid to call the police, don't hesitate to do so. You won't just be saving a life, you'll be saving lives. It can be hard if it's a friend or a relative, but the world will be proud of you, and you'll be proud of yourself!
On a happier note, that time of year is on its way! Yes, you know the time: Christmas time! I just want to wish everybody a merry Christmas, and I want to remind people about how helpful donating can be this time of year. Many animals will suffer in shelters, and if you can spare a dime, it'll do a lot of good. Go to ASPCA dot org and do your part if you can.
