IZZY UPDATE!!!

Izzy was a adopted from a shelter and had been living in a home with other dogs and a couple for 5 years. In June of 2017 Izzy’s owners said she started showing “reactive behavior.” Their vet told them to euthanize her, so they made the appointment to do so but also reached out to rescues for help and advice.

3 YEARS PROBATION?!?!?

Three years probation and a $5000 fine for filming SLITTING THE THROAT of a pit bull and posting it. This is pathetic and intolerable. There is no comprehending this. How is this not front page news and how is our society so broken and content with zero change? This headline and horrific reality says it all. That judge and our system are an absolute joke. We thank and acknowledge the good people who showed up to make their voices heard. We must keep fighting. Our society has a very very long way to go.

Every summer dogs die senseless horrific and 100% preventable deaths because they are left in hot cars. If it’s 75 degrees outside, it’s 110 degrees in a car. Heat stroke and organ shut down happens in MINUTES followed by a painful and agonizing death. It is a CRIME in the state of California to leave your dog in a hot car and legal for anyone to smash the window and save the dog. We urge everyone to carry extra water, bowls, towels

HUMANS ARE THE PROBLEM

The indignant attitude we experience daily from humans who email us asking us to share the pet they are abandoning and/or are done with because they got a job, had a baby, got busy … blah, blah, blah… is repugnant. Dogs are LIVES not toys. Their lives are not a game for you to play with. But if you don’t have the capacity to understand this and lack all common sense and a heart, then the next time you ask a rescue or foundation to clean up your mess, also consider making a donation to support that organization. After all
