Re: Kill Shelter question

Bringing this up again because I have sent my state representative a proposal for him to draft a bill to ban gassing of animals in Ohio. I'm waiting for his decision his assistant said he has been reviewing my proposal...so I hope to hear something from him soon. I worry because this is his last ter...

Re: Kill Shelter question

I asked a person who works there and they said the dogs sometimes howl when the oxygen starts to fade so it sounds like its the painful kind. I'm taking on the local vet emergency room...long story short one of my rescue pups had parvo and was vomiting blood..I didn't have the type of payment they a...

Kill Shelter question

I guess this is the best area for this question...I've been working with rescue by pulling dogs/puppies from a small high kill shelter. I was just informed they gassed a pit without giving her a chance. There is a lot of uproar over the use of gas by this shelter. Does anyone know much about it...is...

Re: Four adoptions since my last post

Glad to see you back, Ruthie :) I'm also glad to hear that you are still going forward with the rescues. The puppies need you just as badly, and just think of what you can do to give them a good start with hugs and basic training while they are with you. Well done! Thanks...the hardest part is lett...

Four adoptions since my last post

Re: Strange neighbors

Dog walkers sound so irresponsible...what if the puppy isn't finished with his shots they could have put him at risk.
I'm the only one in the neighborhood with a fence..so far no one has tried but I'm always outside with the dogs. I guess the family is lucky they didn't take off with the puppy.
