STOP ANIMAL ABUSE

“Isn’t it strange, that it’s ok to set up video surveillance to catch animal abusers on this beach; yet it’s not ok to set up a camera to catch animal abuse in a slaughter house…without being called a TERRORIST!!”

(CNN) — The images of seals being harassed on a California beach are perplexing and disturbing.

In the middle of the night, two women sit on harbour seals, kick them or pull their flippers, all the while snapping flash pictures. The animals eventually flee into the water.

  • Other incidents of animal cruelty include people putting beer cans on sea birds

Remember the posting about the pup living on a mattress? It has been a few weeks since I first saw Barchiel on an empty lot in Pharr Texas. My friend Joyce Fields, was there to help me out getting the word out on Barchiel. She had the time and patience for me to explain her all that had happened in one single day and explained to her my intentions to have the dog rescued. If you did not read the first article by Joy you can read it by clicking here: Stray dog living on a mattress needs help.

Since then, many things happened once he was picked up by animal control. My friend Joy Benson has been with me from the start and she did not give up on Barchiel till he was picked up. The Animal Control of the City of Pharr Texas were helpful in telling us that he had been picked up and sent to Palm Valley Animal Center. The bad news that we did not know was that the animal shelter has a policy on not placing any pit mixes available for adoption. Being so close to the border with Mexico there is always the chance of the dogs ending up in dog fighting rings. Joyce Fields wrote another article asking for people to help him out.If you missed it you can read it by clicking here: Update on stray dog living on a mattress

Joy and I called to the animal shelter in order to talk to them. I have to thank to all the kind people that picked up our calls. Thank you for your kindness and listening to us. At the end of the 3 days of hold…we received news that Barchiel would not be put to sleep. He would be placed on hold till he found a rescue to take him in. He got his first vaccines and he got tested for Heartworm…unfortunately he did test positive for heartworm.

The shelter asked that in order for Barchiel to be placed in a rescue it has to be a registered rescue. There is limited transport…He has a ride to San Antonio, Houston or Austin at the moment. The treatment for his heartworm and he still needs to be fixed. Joy Benson, Joyce Fields and I decided to start online fundraising. So far we are close to $500! Thanks to great people that have donated and want to help Barchiel. What he needs now is to find a rescue that will be willing to give him a chance and give him a vacant place in rescue. He is a good boy, very timid, but he does not respond aggressively when people show him affection or touch him while he eats. He is getting socialized at Palm Valley Animal Shelter.

This are some of his details: 

age: two yeas of age
sex:male
color: tan / white
The following is the description given by the animal shelter:

He is just about 2yrs old, HW+, and weighs 62lbs. He is now tested and vaccinated. He is a little timid but not aggressive.

He takes food just fine in a bowl and shows no food aggression when adding more to his bowl, or taking away. He loves to be loved on.

He likes neck rubs and is staying close on his little rug. If you can help pull him to a rescue organization (501c3) OUTSIDE OF THE RGV

If you can help this sweetheart that has no fault for being abandoned and left to fend for himself, please contact us! We are here to help!

All rescues that send a message will be vetted by us in order to find Barchiel an appropriate home.

We have named him Barchiel…it means angel of compassion. We have all being guided by compassion to help out this little guy

If you read this posting…I pray you can help him out. Please share his story.


There is always room for one..I see by his coat he must be a stray,
The untidy look gives him away.
He’s lost his will and is so thin,
Hasn’t eaten since God knows when.
I know as I coax him through the door,
There’s always room for one more.
The other night in the freezing rain,
That little female came again.
Matted and soaked, crying in need,
Lost and alone with babies to feed.
Her pleading eyes I couldn’t ignore,
There’s always room for one more.

There’s a new face on the docks today,
Hungry but clean, to our dismay,
I stroked her head, her body rippled,
When she got up I saw she was crippled.
She started to go, but fell on the floor.
There’s always room for one more.

There’s the poor doggy standing in the rain,
I’ve tried to entice him time and again.
One ear is lopsided, the other’s been torn,
Blind in one eye, lost and forlorn.
He’s coming now, so I’ll open the door.
There’s always room for one more.

O.K.  We will not elaborate here.   Takes too much time.  You all know the drill – Cowboy Kenny is Leaving, and Obama’s First Choice for his replacement is a Wild Horse Hating/Wolf Murdering Bitch.

Washington State’s Governor, Chris Gregoire, allowed ranchers to graze cattle for free in Washington state public forests. She the massacred the Wedge Wolf Pack with their puppies.  The FUCKING rancher refused to even try non lethal deterrants on the Wolves.

If the video upsets you, if it bothers you to see an animal imprisoned in a leg hold trap, pacing in fear, unable to defend itself, then shot while laughter rings out as the wolf is dying, don’t waste time saying…

Gordon Shell, The Dog Fighter

10 Oct

Hand4Paws really appreciates the work being done by Gordon Shell, MMA fighter turned fighter to help dogs. His documentary, The Dog Fighter, is scheduled to be released next month, and this great film needs more exposure.   We are asking our friends who care about dogs to please contact CNN and Ellen DeGeneres, asking if they would interview Gordon Shell.

Gordon Shell’s story was shared on the iReport site for CNN. Although it has over 1,000 views and recommendations, it was never chosen to be aired.

You’ll see what we mean when you read more about Gordon Shell and watch the trailer for The Dog Fighter:  http://www.examiner.com/article/mma-fighter-gordon-shell-begins-a-new-fight-saving-detroit-s-dogs

Would you please help Gordon Shell (and dogs everywhere!) by sending an email to CNN and Ellen via their online contact forms:

Ellen DeGeneres:   http://www.ellentv.com/be-on-the-show/10/ 

Thank you, and please share this!  When we work together, we can do amazing things!!

Here is a sample letter:

Please consider interviewing Gordon Shell.  His documentary The Dog Fighter is scheduled to be released in November 2012.

The Dog Fighter is the inspiring true story of mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter Gordon Shell. When a medical condition threatened to end his career as a fighter, Shell didn’t back down, but continued to fight. This time, however, the fight was for a different cause: the homeless and abused dogs of Detroit. The documentary covers the transition Shell made from MMA fighter to The Dog Fighter. Shell states “I started pushing harder since I’m a fighter and work with fighters. I think we have a bigger voice to go after the bad guys.”

His is a great human interest story.  So many people are interested in the things Gordon Shell is doing for all animals.  When his story was published in the online article below, it went viral. Although his documentary depicts what happens in Detroit, it portrays the reality of many cities across the United States as well as the whole world. He is a great human being working for a great cause, helping man’s best friend.

He is especially against dog fighting.  In his own words: “I’m fighting. So the dogs don’t have to.”

Please watch the movie trailer in this article: http://www.examiner.com/article/mma-fighter-gordon-shell-begins-a-new-fight-saving-detroit-s-dogs

Thank you for your consideration.

Neglected Dog Found Alive in Trash BagAdd your thoughts here… (optional)

By Samantha Morgan

BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — A small dog was found alive in a trash bag that was placed outside of someone’s home in the Goodwood area on Friday, Sept. 21. Had the bag gone unnoticed a few minutes longer, that dog could have ended up in the back of a Waste Management truck. Fortunately, a volunteer with a local rescue organization happened to be in the right place at the right time.

“Our volunteer, Stacy, was walking her dogs when she saw [the dog] in the trash,” Andrea LaFaver, President of SOS Rescue, said. “She asked if anyone checked to see if he was really dead. They pulled the bag to the side and clearly saw that he was still breathing.

“He was in such bad shape that he couldn’t stand up.”

SOS Rescue took in the discarded pup and named him Wilbur, and they began addressing…
