« Dog Owners To Jackie - Thy Name Is Mud. | Main | Dunkirk, NY -Richard Maruch - OK To Break NY Law To Ban Breeds? Maybe Dog Owners Should Ban Makuch »

September 01, 2005

I would like to see tougher enforcement of the laws regarding dog fighting. The Michael Vick case has brought a lot of things to light. There is an increase of this heinous practice among the players in these Sports organizations. These guys need to be investigated and prosecuted. We have the laws. Why are they being enforced?
EDITOR'S NOTE: Dog fighting is a felony in all 50 states. Enforcement is the issue - or shall we say lack of enforcement. Celebrities and sports figures should not get a free ride -PERIOD.

CNN reported today that officials (not sure which ones) had tried to make a blind woman abandon her seeing eye dog, when rescuing her from the flood waters in the New Orleans area. In the end, they did allow her to take the dog.
What kind of crazyness is this? How could this woman live without her dog in the chaos of a large shelter? How could she begin a new life in a new place with any kind of independence? How could she afford the thousands of dollars required to replace the dog, & how would she endure the long waiting list to get her new seeing eye dog, even if she could afford it, after what Katrina has done to most people finacially?

The idea of terrorizing people with the threat of seizing or shooting companion animals is self defeating. These people will just hide & the prospect of finding/ getting them out of the city will be almost impossible. It's self defeating for Police & military personelle to do these kinds of things. We all know that the loss of a pet, (sometimes the only friend for an elderly person, or physically/mentally handicapped individual)is devasting to a healthy person who has not lost their home & everything else, including perhaps family members or friends.

If the 'Rescuers' cannot manage compassion & respect for the most vulnerable, could they at least muster up some common sense in reguard to their own job at hand?

The toll free number for the American Dog Owners Association is 800 226 6233 and Kim is waiting to take your information.

In addition, Leah Purcell from Spindletop has now gone to Lafayette to pick up dogs to bring to her refuge. Leah can certainly use your help as well.

Thank you all and God Bless!

I'll definitely be donating to a reputable relief fund, as will so many other individuals. But where are the major businesses? Why aren't Wal-Mart, Target, Walgreens, Gap, other major US stores, sending relief supplies? Wal-Mart sells so many things and makes so much money, surely its board could authorize provision of bottled water, foodstuffs, clothing and bedding, pharmaceuticals and medical supplies. If these businesses do not step up to the plate in New Orleans, people should seriously consider finding new places to shop so that their disgust at the stores' lack of compassion reflects in the stores' bottom line.
