Canine Lives Matter

December 16, 2015

What an absolutely horrific story! If you can bear to read the whole thing, you can find it on Raw Story. To say things don’t add up here would be an understatement.

The chief has since resigned, and I’m thinking it might be a great idea to stick him in a cage and put him out in the middle of the firing range for a while.

Sending our condolences to the Womack family on the loss of their beloved dog, Chase.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

West Valley (AZ) Puppy Mill Bust
The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office recently rescued as many as 130 Pugs and French Bulldogs from a puppy mill operation in Tonopah. They received an anonymous tip about conditions in the home and asked the homeowners to take care of the situation. When nothing was done, deputies returned and took control of the dogs without incident. The owners now face animal neglect charges.

According to ABC15, the dogs are available for adoption. For more information or to adopt one of these dogs call 602-876-1212 or email MASH@MCSO.maricopa.gov. [Read more]
