SPENCER - ID#A536558 Rottweiler mix.

PetHarborPet SPENCER - ID#A536558
Shelter Staff made the following comments about this animal:
Spencer is about four years of age and weighs an estimated 55-60 pounds. He is always eager to get out of his kennel to go for a walk and his tail will wag like crazy. He does pretty well on the leash, but will excel with continued practice. Spencer has shown signs of being housetrained, but will of course need time in his new home to adjust. Come meet Spencer in the Auggie Doggie adoptable dog area, where he'll be eagerly waiting to win your heart.

My name is SPENCER.

I am a male, black and tan Rottweiler mix.

The shelter staff think I am about 4 years old.

I have been at the shelter since Nov 14, 2010.

Justice for BABYFACE who's back legs were chopped off for "stealing" food and left in critical condition



* Target: Ms. Angie Serote, Prosecutor, Magestrate Court, Sabie, South Africa
* Sponsored by: South African Animal Rights Community

SABIE, South Africa - A defenseless dog was subjected to merciless mutilation when her supposed "best friend" chopped off her back legs and cruelly left her in that critically injured state for more than a week.

"She was stealing; now that she can't walk so she can't steal anymore," said the owner. He simply shrugged his shoulders when he was confronted. According to the remorseless man, he wanted to teach his dog a lesson so he cut her back legs off with a blunt axe.

When help finally arrived after a concerned neighbour in the informal settlement of "Fok-Fok" stating they had seen an injured dog, the poor skeleton-of-a-dog was in severe pain and shock, and displayed absolutely no reaction when she was approached. The black Africanis female dog was lying outside when the disorientated animal was removed from the premises.

When questioned why the owner chopped off her legs, his response was "ask the dog". It is an absolute horrific act of animal cruelty as the dog was lying and whimpering in pain for more than a week with her owner ignoring her. The owner also commented "see, now, I have no more problems with her". He also helped loading his other dog into the official vehicle himself which was taken to a temporary shelter.

The injured dog was taken to a veterinarian who was appalled at what he saw. "She was totally dehydrated and in shock and septicemia was already taking place - one could smell the flesh rotting." He said she was in severe pain and it was decided mercifully to put her out of her misery.
"But the worst was that she was totally dejected and had simply resigned herself to the fact that she was going to die, that this was her lot in life," The veterinarian was clearly emotional as he added that the dog "simply stared at him".

Her owner never gave her a name, so the rescuer named her Babyface.

The incident was reported to the police and the owner will be prosecuted and charged with animal cruelty under the Animals Protection Act 71 of 1962.

Chamberlin needs your help … His abusers are going to court this Friday, 10/29/10.

October 26, 2010
by ourcompassadmin

Chamberlin, a lab-mix, was abandoned and found tethered to a tree, emaciated, and too weak to stand. His frail body was discovered when someone attempted to mow the lawn. Chamberlin endured neglect that no living creature should have to experience. He survived two long, grueling months without food, little water, and no shelter. Nelli Brock and Wilbert Morrison, Jr., have been charged with 2 counts of felony animal cruelty and are expected in court on Friday, October 29, 2010. We have only three days to contact the district attorney asking for the harshest penalty. You may use the Sample Letter as a guide so that the DA receives a variety of messages.

Please contact the ADA that is prosecuting this case in North Carolina asking him to prosecute to the fullest extent of the law regarding the inhumane, evil people who starved and neglected Chamberlain for 2 months!

WHOM TO CONTACT:

SAMPLE LETTER TO USE AS A GUIDE, MODIFY & SHORTEN

Dear District Attorney Henderson,

I have learned of extremely disturbing and malicious case of animal cruelty allegedly committed by Ms. Nelli Brock and Mr. Wilbert Morrison, Jr., and I am writing to express my support of imposing the maximum penalty. The victim, a dog named Chamberlin, was deliberately neglected, forced to endure an agonizing two months tethered to a tree with no food, little water, and no companionship. As the result of this neglect and subsequent malnutrition, Chamberlin was unable to even walk and was hidden in the tall grasses; he was only found when the lawn was being mowed. It is essential to recognize that the decision to harm this gentle, innocent non-human animal was premeditated as demonstrated by the chronicle of abusive events beginning with Chamberlin being abandoned.

When I try to imagine what possible motive animal abusers entertain for subjecting their animal victims to such malicious, heinous acts of brutality, I fail, but I am thankful for a lack of cognitive understanding and rationalization. To voluntarily engage in such malicious behaviour suggests sadistic tendencies, and Ms. Brock’s and Mr. Morrison’s behaviour, causing unmitigated pain and suffering, demonstrates their incontrovertible lack of morality regarding other living beings and a gross disrespect for the law. In fact, a person who shows such a remarkable lack of compassion towards non-human animals has the ability to show such indifference towards human animals. This link between animal and human abuse has been established, and if we excuse this criminal behaviour by offering a lesser punishment we only harm ourselves by unjustly nullifying cruelty as acceptable behaviour.

I as well as a national contingent of concerned people are hoping that you will take an unyielding position against animal cruelty and hold these two accountable by sentencing them in accordance with the maximum penalty allowed. If the justice system does not administer the harshest penalty available, it is indeed excusing this malicious behaviour towards sentient beings, and to excuse this type of cruelty harms all by disregarding the basic moral tenet of respecting life and appreciating the value of it. Apathy permeates throughout society and damages all, and we therefore need to teach our children that the law does not excuse, allow, or enable cruelty against human or non-human animals. We need to demonstrate in both word and action that the human essence of empathy does not exist to excuse maliciousness, it exists to provide compassion and justice to the brutalized and punishment to those who willingly deviate from this capacity. If we do not do our duty to provide this, we harm animals and invite injustice into our society.

I know your time is limited and I want to thank you for your attention and consideration.

PLEASE SIGN PETTION TO BRING LENOX HOME

Start a Petition »
PLEASE READ &; GO SIGN PETTION TO BRING LENOX HOME - SAY NO TO BSL, SAVE OUR DOGS!!!!!!!PLEASE SHARE FAR AND WIDE, THANKS! On the 19th May, 2010, The brutal reality of Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) interrupted the Barnes' happy lives, devastating Brooke, their 11 year old daughter. Lennox, their 5 year old American Bulldog Cross, was seized by police after a dog warden came to the house days earlier, saw the dog, and claimed it was a "pit type".


Lennox lived happily with the Barnes family and his two other canine companions before this day and never put a single paw out of place. He had been registered with the dog license bureau for the past 5 years of his life, in addition to being insured, neutered, DNA registered, Pet Safe Registered and microchipped.

Two years prior, wardens visited another family member's home who owned a male pup from the same litter, yet were told that their dog was not a Pit Bull; the same warden that seized Lennox apologised for wasting their time. The only difference between the two dogs is that Lennox is black in colour and his brother is brown.

As of July 7, 2010, Lennox has been held in prison, for 50 days, 3 hours, 11 minutes, 45 seconds and counting. His family is heartbroken and worried as Lennox suffers a medical condition that his owners do not know whether he's being treated for.

Please take action to urge Belfast City Council and the Lord Mayor to release Lennox back to his family.

Targeting: Councillor Nichola Mallon, Councillor Bernie Kelly, Belfast City Council, Councillor Nichola Mallon, Councillor Bernie Kelly, Belfast City Council, Councillor Cathal Mullaghan, Belfast City Council, Councillor Peter O'reilly, Councillor Tim Attwood (SDLP Spokesperson on Voluntary and Community Affairs), Councillor Pat Mccarthy, Pat Convery (Lord Mayor of Belfast ) and Belfast City Council
