Laika got spayed last Thursday and she's not acting like that at all...her abdomen also isn't red. Has your vet looked at her or have you just talked to him on the phone?

Has anyone heard of this website?

http://dogdetective.com/

Someone posted a lost chow with a link to its page on that website on craigslist, so I started looking at the website. It looks like a really great thing! From what I understand, it notifies the shelters and humane societies for you about your dog! I definitely bookmarked it in my browser just in case *knock on wood*!!

Ugh Justin made me go watch the X-Men movie when it came out. He says it's just because I hadn't seen the first two, but I hated it!!!

My boyfriend bought me The Little Mermaid yesterday :)

He swore that he would never bring a Disney movie into this house, so it's kinda a big deal :)

70 Dogs in Odessa ( Texas ) Losing Guardian to Cancer. All Need Homes!

Posted 04/13/2006


Dear Animal Friends,

We are sad to report that there are 70 dogs at a sanctuary in Odessa, Texas who need to be placed in loving homes. They are currently at a sanctuary run by a wonderful man who is in the last stages of prostate cancer. If these dogs are not rescued soon, he will be unable to care for them and a local humane society will put them down.

Most of the dogs are mid- to large-sized. All the dogs are friendly to dogs and humans; they are starved for human affection. There are no agressive dogs. The dogs have been neutered and spayed, vaccinated, tested for heartworm and tick fever, treated for ticks and fleas, treated for tapeworms and some have undergone extensive dental work. Most of these dogs have been in the sanctuary for 1 to 5 years. They have not lived in homes, so they will require some socialization.



If you or anyone you know has the time, patience and the room in your heart and home to provide for one or more fo these animals, please contact Max Green at Max@idausa.org or leave a message at 415 388-9641, ext 222 and someone will get back to you right away.

Thank you for all that you do to help animals

Sincerely,
In Defense of Animals

Ugh...I posted that on Craigslist and I'm already getting angry replies...

Did you know many shelters/rescues had rather kill animals than give them away? Did you know many of these rescues have no better conditions than the ones they criticize? Do you ever see the news where mass amounts of animals are neglected at these rescues/shelters? Itís about recouping money or turning a profit at all cost even if it means the death of the animal. One case that always burns me is on pet finder, there are parrots stolen from a volunteer at the shelter. These birds are the most expensive birds money can buy. How do you think they came across these? My guess is they got stolen from a thief. Take a look at pet finder main page you will see where rescues are arguing over pets like meat, and fighting with each other like children. Donít be fooled by these rescues that are doing this out of the kindness of their hart. Bottom line is money. This new excuse is just a new way to help them find peace when they try to sleep at night. By the way I wonder how many animals that go to these rescues/shelters come out alive. I am in no way criticizing city shelters. They do what they have to do. Itís these places that say they are charging so they make sure they have a good home. The sad thing is when a mix breed does not have the same ADOPTION FEE as the pure breeds. This is because they know they can flat out sell these animals. Money thatís it folks this rescue is a business. I worked with some of these people before. Ask them about the freezer full of dead animals they have if they donít they are they are not in compliance with Texas Humane Society. Some have bigger freezers than others. I understand the local shelters trying to recoup money for services. At least they donít use this we are charging so they go to a good home lie. By the way I just had a cat of mine die that I got for free, he was 3 years old when I got him I had him for another 18 years. I have a dog that I got for free had her for 6 years she is laying on my lap as I am typing this. If paying money for an animal is fail safe for good care 80% of the pit bulls that are being killed would not be.

I'm sure it'll be really difficult to get hard evidence for something like that. People tend to cover their tracks pretty well.

I posted it on Craigslist. People on there piss me off on a daily basis. I especially hate it when they say something like "we bought her for $500, you can have her for $250" or "adoption fee is $500 since we've only had her a few weeks"

We used to crate Kingsley and Laika when we were gone, but found that they've got much better attitudes when we get home if we leave them out. I've been told by the neighbors that the only thing they do is sit in front of the window and watch people :)
