“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
  • Some people abuse animals due to peer pressure, but some enjoy doing it, ASPCA says
  • Conservationists say more enforcement is needed, not more laws

My name is Barchiel (Angel of Compassion).  I used to sleep on an old dirty mattress until a nice lady found me and asked the Pharr Animal Control Unit to pick me up and bring me to Palm Valley Animal Center.  My two-legged friends at PVAC give me lots of attention, toys, and love.  They even let me help them work during the day.  On their breaks, they give me neck rubs and boy does that feel great!  Little did they know how well behaved I am, as I listen to their stories and never make a mess.  I like sleeping and relaxing on my own personal rug.  They feed me my meals in a bowl, which I had never had before. I am getting “Five Star” treatment!

I am two years old, have been vaccinated and am currently being treated for heart worm. Two ladies have been raising money for my expenses, as I will need to continue with my heart worm treatment and eventually get neutered.  So far my piggy bank has $486 and growing.  I would love it if you would let me come live at your rescue organization until I find my forever home.  I’d give you a big lick on the face if you do!

New update on Barchiel! Formerly known as “dog living on a mattress”

15 Mar


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
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.

Donate to DFW Rescue Me or to the Dallas Animal Shelter and Hand4Paws will promote your company via online article and social media‏

DFW Rescue Me is a wonderful rescue group located in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. DFW has helped save many animals from being euthanized, and has taken on such cases such as Justice, the puppy set on fire and burned over 70% of his little body, who sadly later died from his burns. Here is Justice’s story: http://dfwrescueme.org/justices-story/

We, Hand4Paws, are not associated with DFW Rescue Me. Hand4Paws is an all-volunteer group of world-wide animal advocates that use social media to promote animal rights and fight for animal welfare. We do, however, appreciate the hard work DFW has done to aid animals in need. Hand4Paws prepared a petition, asking that the man who allegedly set Justice on fire receive the maximum sentence. The petition received 29,000 signatures. http://www.change.org/petitions/maximum-sentence-for-darius-ewing-for-setting-dog-justice-on-fire

If you would be interested in helping out this great organization, DFW Rescue Me, by making a donation directly to them via their website, here is their link: http://dfwrescueme.org/donate-now/

We would like to ask for help for the Dallas Animal Services. They receive help from DFW Rescue me and they also do great work promoting animal adoption and doing their best in saving animals and educating the public. According to their site they are dedicated to the humane treatment of animals in Dallas and educating others about responsible pet ownership. They reinforce these ideals every day by providing daily care for hundreds of animals in the shelter, assisting citizens who come to see us as well as out in the community. They respond to calls regarding animal welfare and concerns, conduct free Responsible Pet Ownership classes, hold offsite animal adoption events, and speak at and provide educational information at public safety fairs, environmental festivals, and neighborhood organizations. They are in great need of different things that would make the life of so many dogs more comfortable. They include their wish list: http://www.dallasanimalservices.org/

If you choose to donate, a member of Hand4Paws who writes for the Examiner has offered to include in an article on a visit to DFW a list of the individuals/companies/organizations which have agreed to help by donating to DFW Rescue Me or Dallas Animal Services. One of our members will be visiting the DFW shelter to deliver the petition for Justice and toys and other donated items we can collect.

Hand4Paws will also promote on Facebook and Twitter the companies which donate to DFW Rescue Me or Dallas Animal Services. We will be also be posting on our Facebook wall a list of those who help out rescues when we ask them, along with their Facebook link, which we will ask people to “like.”

If you are able to donate, please let Hand4Paws know after you have donated (DO NOT provide Hand4Paws with monetary or other information, ONLY answer this email to say that you have donated and send us your Facebook link and/or link for your website so we may promote it).

DFW is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization. As is mentioned in “Justice’s Story”: “in his honor, DFW Rescue Me has created the Justice fund to ensure all dogs that are the victims of abuse or neglect in the city of Dallas receive necessary medical care and the opportunity to know the kindness of the human hand that they so deserve. Justice will ensure they have a second leash on life.”

If you have any questions, you can contact DFW Rescue Me directly, more information can be found here: http://dfwrescueme.org/contact/ or Hand4Paws at the email below.

Justice and Honor for the dog named Bridges.

The following is a letter by one of our Facebook Friends; Christine Martin. She is being a voice for Bridges. Bridges is no longer with us and has crossed over the rainbow bridge. She sent us this letter in order to gain support and for people to know Bridges’ story. Please take the time to read and take action in order for the terrible thing that happen to Bridges not to happen again to another animal. We are all a voice to animals. They need our support and signature. Please, Read, Sign, Join and Share!
Dear Hand4Paws,

I’m writing to you in regards to a sad case involving a young German Shepherd (named Bridges) who’d been rescued from a High Kill shelter in Georgia after he’d been dumped there when the young man that owned him died of cancer. After surviving at this shelter for some time, Bridges was finally rescued and was sent to a boarding facility in Butts County before being transported to his new home. During his stay at this boarding facility, Bridges was shot and killed by the owner Jose Ortiz (who was later found to be operating this boarding facility illegally). Bridges survived a high kill shelter but didn’t survive this boarding facility and Bridges never made it to his new home.

Even though no charges have yet been brought against Jose Ortiz, the Georgia Humane Society is now involved and are pursuing criminal charges of animal cruelty against Mr. Ortiz.I’m writing to your organization to ask whether you and your members would like to sign a Petition at the Care2 Petition Site (sponsored by Lauren Bjorklund) which is seeking Justice for Bridges: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/627/019/957/justice-for-bridges-the-sad-and-neglected-german-shepherd-shot-by-boarding-owner/?cid=FB_Share
We’d also really appreciate it if you would check out the “Honor for Bridges” Facebook page and share it with friends since the more people that know about this case, the less likely that other animals will share the same fate as Bridges:http://www.facebook.com/HonorForBridges
This is the new poster by the Georgia Humane Society on Bridge’s story (which shows a photo of Jose Ortiz one day after he shot and killed Bridges):http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=388172201254640&set=a.344832305588630.79675.344519782286549&type=1&theater

Thanks for your time and for everything that you do to help animals in need,

President Obama needs to receive at least 10,000 Faxes within the next 24 hours.

CLICK [HERE] to Send a Free Fax to President Barack Obama. FAX # 202-456-2461





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.

CLICK [HERE] for GRAPHIC VIDEO to COMPLETELY UNDERSTAND Wolf Hunting and Trapping.  Nobody in their RIGHT MIND would want someone who approves of this to be the Secretary of the Interior of the United States.

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…
