3/17/12 UPDATE: There is now a petition asking the Humane Society PA state director and the Federated Humane Societies of Pennsylvania to step in. Both the owners and the Bedford County Humane Society need to be investigated – the owners for abuse and the Bedford Cty Humane Society for why they are ignoring the abuse. Please sign and share:

3/11/12: UPDATE ON: EVERETT PENNSYLVANIA – TWO DOGS NEED RESCUED/NO FOOD/NO WATER/CHAINED & ABUSED!
Hand4Paws received an email from a wonderful woman who drove out to check on the dogs. Here is what she found:
“When I got there – I managed to take a pic of the only dog I saw… He was in a pen no longer than me & there is so much trash around !! OMG… anyway when I spoke to the lady she was willing to show me the dogs, but had to get dressed – the grandmother then appeared in the doorway & started screaming saying & I quote “she feeds them 3 times a day & were tired of getting harrassed by these neighbors”!!!
After grandmother when into the house – the idiot came outside & started screaming “who is here & what do they want “!! I proceeded to tell him who I was & what I wanted – he told me that he was gonna call the state troopers !! I being from Philly told the idiot to call them & if he wanted I had them on speed dial !! After I called the state troopers – no trooper was in the area… I hung up with them & called the Humaine Society & got a recorded message stating they were closed.
The idiot started demanding that I leave cuz I was trespassing on private property ….There was no posted signs anywhere – guy is full of crap… The woman peered out of the house to show me the dogs & we started walking towards the woods !!! I’m thinking – Great, I’m gonna see them !! WRONG !!! The idiot told me that if I dont leave his property – I was gonna be shot… He demanded that the woman get back into the house. I said ok…I will be back !! After that I was on my way home & ran into a state trooper – I flagged him down & proceeded to advise him of everything that transpired that morning…The officer told me to not give up – & to get the “multiple” dogs & kitties outta there !! (exact words)
The officer also told me to flood the Humane Society by email & phone calls until they act !!”
This caring woman went out of her way to go check on the dogs. The least we can do is call the Humane Society of Bedford County, asking that they check on – and help – these abused dogs.
