I need your help!
« on: November 10, 2012, 11:41 AM »
Ok, here's the deal. I hope this is ok to post and share here. If not please remove it and ban FRENCHY not me bc she said it was.  :D

Earlier this week in Virginia (where I live) a lab puppy was shot three times and killed by a local animal control officer. Since then two news stations in my area have picked up the story and people are coming out of the woodwork and the truth is coming out about this guy. He is not someone who should be in this line of work and after his actions this week people are extremely upset. Because it's not the first time he's done something like this.

Please if you have a few moments check out the facebook page about it and also here are the two news articles. The comments on the news pages are very telling.

Also on the facebook page you can click the link to go sign a petition to hopefully get this man removed from his position.

I do not know this man personally, nor do I live in that county. But I know someone who does and I've already heard things from her things that he has done that she has witnessed firsthand.

Not everyone will be an animal lover nor be supportive of animal rights. But at the very least you should have some sense of compassion and respect towards them, especially if it is your JOB to protect.

This really is a bigger story than just a dog being shot. Any and all support is appreciated.

Thanks for your time :)

  :sign0098:  Asked and answered.  As an animal lover and also someone who rescues animals I will also contact my friends all over the world to assist you with your petition.

I currently have 10 cats, 2 kittens, 6 dogs, 2 goats, 12 chickens, 2 donkeys and 3 pigs which were badly treated and abandoned that I am fostering [probably permenantly, lol  :)] and even thought they drive me crazy the rewards are self evident every day.

A true measure of a person is not how they relate to other human beings but how they relate to [supposed] lesser species and the dignity and respect with which we treat them.

More than happy to assist - I hope you get the response you hope for, I know everyone at PTS will be more than happy to look into the matter and respond as they see fit.
 :dance:
Good Luck .................  :-*

By the way Frenchy - my pigs are cuter than yours ...........love the avi!!!  :dance:  :D :D :D

Thank you so much Melanie!

I myself have 5 cats. I say three but 2 (a brother and sister combo) have basically forced me into adopting them through non stop harrassment every time I stepped out my front door. lol Plus I have a budgie.

I love them all to pieces. Even though they tried to kill me this week and caused me to fall and twist my knee.  :D

I am just glad people are stepping out and speaking up not just for justice for this poor dog who lost his life so callously but for all the other animals who were killed before him, and who knows how many more WILL be if people don't do something.

I hope some change can be brought through Axel's death.

Animals have no voice of their own. At least not one us humans can understand. So we need to speak up and help as much as we can on their behalf.

Thank you all for taking the time to at least read my post. :)

Ok no problem Frenchy, wait until my man is back - he's taken some charter tourists sailing for a couple of weeks, lucky ba....rd and taken my digi camera - then I will send you pics of all my adopted kids.   :)  If I can stop the pigs eating for long enough to take a pic or two, lol!!!! thats all they do eat and follow me around....... ;D

To be honest I prefer animals to people in general but the pigs have all animals beat hands down - who would have thought it .....   :D :D :D

I will make sure I get some good ones for you, so dont worry ........  :-*

One of my cats Grits, is the only one I've had since he was super young (got him at 4 months) and he is SUCH a momma's boy. Whenever he gets sick or doesn't feel good he wants to lay all up next to me and purrs super loud and does this pitiful meow.

I am more than happy to assist in any worthy cause especially any animal related cause, I agree totally with everything you have said.  We are their voice and as such we have a responsibility.
I am sorry it took so long to get back to you but I was sharing on facebook and emailing friends to assist.
If you need any other assistance in the future please contact me directly via PM I will be more than happy to assist.  Keep me updated on what happens with the case.
Good Luck ..........  and keep up the good work  :-*
