Be there or be square and let's see if we can't rescue the ones HSPCA hasn't killed yet…

Sniffing for Due Process

HSPCA Judge Shopping & Prosecutors Prefer Star Chambers?

Above the Law?

Low on Sales Stock?

Well, it looks like Houston SPCA's pet store got low on stock so they had to go snatch some more animals in salable condition.

"An anonymous tip..."  BIG surprise there!  NOT!!!

"birds, along with dozens of dogs, rabbits and hamsters..."  NICE selection!  That should fill out the HSPCA store's var…

STOP the Snake BAN Laws

While I'm working on an article about alleged animal hoarding (15 is a hoard if you have them but 400 is OK if you're an "official" rescuer or city pound, really?), I thought I'd share one of Barbara's posts.  If you've read my blog for a bit, you know that snakes kinda freak me out; however, many l…

News of the Weird Rescuers

They consistently call this dog "he"...  "Big E" has been spayed and neutered...  REALLY???  I sure hope "he" finds a home with a responsible pet owner because I have doubts that the people who have him right now are the least bit competent.  If you don't understand my meaning, you might be an anim…

A Plea for Trooper

I have a fondness for most dogs and cats and quite a few other critters but there are some that always tug at my heart a bit more than others and an apple face Siamese is one of those.  Despite his injuries of unknown origin, Trooper still has that sweet lovely Siamese face that reminds me of my fir…

Mean Girl or Athena, It's a Choice

In the last couple of days, I've commented elsewhere on the Mean Girls from high school that we all knew.  Mean Girls do not grow up.  They grow older and resent it.  They grow into mean, nasty, vicious, controlling, vindictive, manipulative girls but want the world to see them as beautiful, caring,…

Gypsy Heart Horse Rescue

People fascinate me and often I have more questions than I can find answers to.  Who or what is Gypsy Heart Horse Rescue (GHHR)?  You see, there are these 47 horses that were seized from a private owner (I'll come back to that story later) and they are being held by the Collin County, TX officials a…

161 Dogs Rehabbed in Under 16 Days. REALLY?

Have you ever thought of rehabilitating an abused dog?  It's a noble thing to do and it's a whole lot of work.  "Rehabilitation is a very slow process," said Nicolini.  Indeed it is.  First are the critical medical needs.  Nearly every rescued dog has worms and deworming is about a 3 week process …

More Dog Killing by LEOs and MORE To Come In the Future

From coast to coast, officers are shooting dogs and consider themselves justified in these killings.  Here's a small example of the ones posted on YouTube.  How many dogs or other animals do officers shoot/kill?  We'll never know.  That this many are caught on video or covered by the news should tel…

Dead Dogs

It is now “illegal” in Texas to neglect dogs by failure to get extraordinary veterinary care for dogs (owner care is inherently insufficient); to admit one breeds and sells dogs; to preserve dead dogs as is done by veterinarians until disposal.

Good Intentions and Dumbass JPs

"I believe Mr. Vonda started out with good intentions," said Judge Hale.  "But at this point he is in over his head and cannot care for these animals properly."  Properly?  WTF??  What the hell kind of standard is that?  It damned sure doesn’t look like any standard set forth in Texas statutes, tha…

Will That Microchip Get Your Pet Home?

The lady wants to surrender her dog.  She says she's the owner and the shelter takes the dog.  The shelter scans the dog and finds a microchip and checks it out.  GOOD SHELTER!  The shelter finds out the dog really belongs to a rescue, a rescue that retains ownership when placing dogs in forever hom…
