Petition to Save Gwendolyn the Pig, Resident of Prince Georges County Maryland.


  



Here she is, this is Gwendolyn  


     "Description:  Prince George's County, Maryland has told Pat Brown to get rid of her 20-year-old potbelly pig, Gwendolyn, a death sentence since a pig this old cannot be moved from her home. The appeal is pending, date unknown, and a PG official has already stated Pat Brown will not win. Please help fight the PG Pigsecution of Gwendolyn!" This 20 yr old Pot Bellied Pig has only known one family, and the County rules here in Maryland have now been changed so that they want to have Gwendolyn removed from her environment. All of the neighbors are fine with her being there.


    


     Please sign this petition so this can be rewritten, Gwendolyn is grandfathered in and the issue is dropped and this Animal & her Family can stay together!"


     Maybe we can get a new law passed called "Gwendolyn's Law" and it can be a reassessed, updated ammendment to the County, and State of Maryland and other states that include people dealing with this issue and other animals that may not be considered "traditional" but at the same time not harmful to society or others.

   You can comment directly to the county at this customer message form:


http://cms.princegeorgescountymd.gov/OnlineForm/Lists/Customer%20Service%20Message%20Form/NewFormcp.aspx


 


also was thinking if you comment to the county, include this petition link, that way if they read a comment from us,  they will also have access to this petition, and see the support.

this petiton was created by a fellow animal lover, I do not know Ms. Brown personally and have never met her, but turns out she lives in my community and wanted to see if I could help out a little by starting this Save Gwendolyn free online petition.

Sparkle needs new home after her owner passed away last week. She was in the hospital just being diagnosed as diabetic when he passed away.  She is a special needs dog at 10 because she needs 2 injections- and a careful diet. My sister and I have been giving the shots- and she does not react at all.  Can you help us save Sparkle? She must, though, be an only pet (dog). She is a little Diva girl and literally sat on my Dad's lap and made him happy for 3 years- since he rescued her before. She followed him everywhere, guarded him intently and was his pride and joy. Please, can you help us save her? We will pay ALL medical expenses but want her to have the kind of home he would have wanted for her.  Dayna Silberman 301-881-1651

This Just In!

An Update from the Field ….

Dear Members and Friends,

We received this update from our colleagues who were in Missouri this past Saturday, picking up ‘throwaway’ dogs from puppy mills, dogs who would otherwise be sold at auction or killed. This is the second transport of our ongoing Pup My Ride program, in which we are getting dogs out of puppy mills and taking them to areas where they’ll be sure to find a home … their very first!

These kinds of miracles would not happen without your generous support.

We need your help to make sure the dogs we’re rescuing get to where they deserve to be! For every $50 we raise, one dog will be lifted out of the misery and will start a new chapter full of adventure and happiness.   Your dollars go to help transport unwanted puppy mill dogs to shelters and rescue groups where they will be spayed or neutered, given medical care and placed in forever homes.

This is just one way Best Friends is closing the book on puppy mills through our national
Puppies Aren't Products campaign. With your help, we can save lives and realize our shared dream of No More Homeless Pets.

To find out up to the minute news on this current rescue, please visit our site.

Every dog deserves love, good care, and lots of fun. Give a special gift to save dogs living in puppy mills today!

From the field on Saturday…

“Wanted to send a quick update to let you know how things are going out here in MO.

The short version is, really well! The team is great--we've got about 15 staff and volunteers here. You should all be very proud of the people you have here in the field. They are all working hard and doing a great job, like a well-oiled machine.

We have about 40 dogs here now, and are getting 47 more from one woman (who has 1,000 dogs) and then there will be 12 more coming this evening. Three more stops tomorrow and we're on target for the 150 dogs and puppies expected from the beginning. Many of the dogs we have now are older and/or special needs. We're seeing the typical issues of bad teeth, bad skin, cloudy eyes… one little poodle has no lower jaw, and two dogs (a maltese and Cocker) have huge inguinal hernias. We have five puppies that were returned by the broker for various reasons-- three cockapoo puppies that apparently aren't "poo" enough (they look like purebred cocker spaniels) and two other “designer” breeds.

We're in a lull now as we wait for the 47 to arrive. I think it will be the last lull until we're on the drive!”

Remember, the very latest on these special dogs as well as a video of our latest rescue is on our website.

Thank you for all that you do to help vulnerable animals!

The staff and animals of Best Friends Animal Society

P.S. Please forward this email to your friends and family to help spread the word about this issue and the work of Best Friends. As more people understand the link between puppy mills and pet stores, more people are opting for adopting, diminishing business for puppy mills. Commercial breeders are handing over more dogs than we can transport at one time. That’s why we need your help so we can continue these transports on a regular basis

PRESENT SITUATION / NOTES:
Flooding drowned 10 kittens and one dog in their cages at Louisville Metro
Animal Services shelter 8/4/09. Director Giles Meloche led an effort to
rescue animals and then supervised the transfer of about 250 dogs and 300
cats from the shelter to temporary housing at the Kentucky Fair and
Exposition Center. [NO animals remain at the water-soaked shelter].

"The water came up so fast," Meloche said. "It went from three inches to
three feet in about 30 minutes." Capt. Wayne Zelinsky, an officer with
Animal Services, said about 20 people worked frantically to save the animals
as the water rose. "By the time we got to the (second) building, the dogs'
heads were the only thing above water," Zelinsky said.

Meloche said kittens who drowned were on the floor and couldn't climb above
rising water, as their mother did. He said he wasn't sure of circumstances
surrounding the dog's drowning. The dog was found dead. Spokeswoman Jackie
Gulbe said it is unclear when they can be returned to the shelter.

 Thoroughbred Placement and Rescue, Inc

In 2008, we placed a little over 150 horses.  The main goal of Thoroughbred Placement and Rescue, Inc. is to provide racing owners and trainers in the mid-atlantic region, a way to reach people who want show and riding horses. In this way, we can direct retiring racehorses into the right hands. We assist horsemen in placing their retired racehorses into good homes so they can enjoy meaningful, productive lives when their racing careers are over. These horses will avoid ending up in the slaughter pipeline and suffering an unspeakable end.

One thing that sets TPR, Inc. apart from other placement programs is that it is a vehicle for thoroughbred horsemen to take responsibility for their own retiring racehorses. What is happening is a cooperative effort on the backstretch by owners and trainers to get their horses into the best possible hands. Too many times the responsibility falls on people outside the industry, when it should be borne primarily by us, with their support.

Dear Friend of PetSmart Charities®,

Even as you read this issue of PetsAlert, our efforts in North Dakota and Minnesota continue. Thanks to your generous support, our Emergency Relief Waggin® vehicle remains in the region providing vital resources to care for companion animals in need.

But the danger is not over. The Associated Press reports that the Sheyenne River, which feeds into the Red River, is rising. When the Red River crested last month it was just short of 41 feet above normal. The second crest is projected to reach 38 to 39 feet.

This poses a tremendous threat to residents of the area and their beloved pets. That is why PetSmart Charities has vowed to stay as long as we are needed...and to provide additional life saving resources should the situation become more serious.

No one knows what the coming days will bring. But with
generous support of our emergency relief efforts, PetSmart Charities will care for the displaced pets of North Dakota and Minnesota until they can be reunited with their loving families.

And while our rescue efforts go on, we also continue to address another dire situation… but sadly, one that often doesn’t make headline news.

Homeless pet overpopulation is one of the reasons why so many homeless pets end up at animal shelters every year — and why millions of lives are lost to euthanasia.

At PetSmart Charities, we know that the most effective way to prevent this tragic loss of life is through spay/neuter programs. And over the last two years, we have launched major new spay/neuter initiatives in areas where pet overpopulation is the greatest.

I hope you will 
take a moment to read about these initiatives in this issue’s Focus On – and learn how PetSmart Charities is helping put an end to unnecessary euthanasia one pet at a time.

Once again, thank you for helping our efforts in North Dakota and Minnesota, and for supporting ALL of our life saving programs.

Sincerely,
Susana M. Della Maddalena
Executive Director
PetSmart Charities, Inc.

Thank You for Helping Pets in North Dakota and Minnesota

Thanks to your generosity, PetSmart Charities® was able to provide assistance to pets affected by possible flooding in North Dakota and Minnesota.



But we still need your support in case the situation changes, and to strengthen us for the next time there is an urgent call for help.

Spaying and Neutering Saves Lives
Kittens
Each year, countless puppies and kittens never get the chance to be lifelong, loving companions — simply because there aren’t enough homes for them.

Read more about how spay/neuter programs save lives!

Focus On

  

Spaying and Neutering Saves Lives!

Spring is a time of year when potentially millions of puppies and kittens will be born into pet homelessness – and tragically, many will never have the chance to be lifelong, loving companions.

This is part of the reason why so many homeless pets end up at animal shelters across the country every year, and why spay/neuter programs are so critical.

PetSmart Charities® is the leading funder of animal welfare programs across North America. And our support of spay/neuter programs prevents thousands of unwanted litters — and saves lives from being tragically lost to euthanasia.

Controlling homeless pet overpopulation is indeed one of the ways we can save lives. And because of this, PetSmart Charities has launched major spay/neuter initiatives in areas where homeless pet overpopulation is the greatest, including:

  • Los Angeles, CA — a landmark effort to build and fund eight low-cost, high-quality, high-volume spay/neuter clinics in the city and county of Los Angeles, where shelter intake is second highest in the United States. Learn more about our efforts in Los Angeles by watching a video about the PetSmart Charities® Spay Los Angeles Initiative.

  • Texas — opening or expanding low-cost, high-quality, high-volume spay/neuter clinics throughout Texas, where euthanasia rates reach 95% in some cities.

  • Across North America – in communities large and small, PetSmart Charities will provide millions of dollars of funding to spay/neuter efforts where they are needed the most.

PetSmart Charities is working tirelessly to prevent millions of lives from being tragically lost. With your gift today, we can fight homeless pet overpopulation…and work toward a day when dogs and cats don’t have to be euthanized because shelters have run out of space.


 Spaying and neutering can save millions of lives from euthanasia

Every spay and neuter procedure will prevent literally thousands of pets from being born into homelessness.

Grants and funding update
The Grey Muzzle Organization improves the lives of old dogs who have been abandoned or left homeless by helping animal shelters, rescue groups, and sanctuaries around the country build programs for the special needs of senior dogs. In addition to the stories above, here are some of the grants and funding awards we have made in the last few months:
  • Financial support for a seniors-for-seniors adoption program (helping senior citizens adopt senior dogs) at Muttville in San Francisco.
  • Medical costs for a rescue organization in New York City, Posh Pets, that frequently takes old dogs from animal control.
  • Medical costs for an old Bichon Frise, who had been surrendered to a shelter by her family when it was discovered she had health problems, so that she can live in a small, in-home sanctuary in Maryland, House With a Heart.
  • In Texas, financial support for two excellent hospice programs run by breed rescues: Golden Retriever Rescue of North Texas and Central Texas Dachshund Rescue.
  • Cots and beds for the senior dogs at the largest shelter in Washington State, The Humane Society for Tacoma and Pierce County, so that old dogs don't have to sleep on cement floors.
  • Funding for Brody, a Golden/Shepherd mix, so that he can end his life happy and comfortable in a foster home provided by the St. Louis Senior Dog Project, who rescued Brody from a high-kill animal control facility, only to discover that he has an untreatable cancer. It is Grey Muzzle's goal to help dogs with even a short time left feel loved one last time.
Grey Muzzle's goal is to raise funds to continue to help these organizations and expand our assistance to new organizations. To find out how you can help, visit www.greymuzzle.org/howyouhelp. Or, donate now. And of course, another great way to help is to forward this email to a friend!

 just got off the phone with another sad situation.  A homeless man and his dog were living in a car until a week ago when his car broke down and left him totally stranded.  The Christiansburg (VA) Baptist Church have been helping him, but now they are reaching out for additional help.  Lee adores his dog, Little Bit, however, the dog is badly in need of medical care which Lee can't provide.  Currently no shelter in the area can be found that accepts dogs, plus Little Bit needs medical attention. 

I'm asking you all to please help us help this man and his dog. Please print the attached flyer and put up in your work place or any other place that allows postings.
All donations designated for Lee and Little Bit will go to them for veterinary care, food, and housing.
Again, thank you all for opening your hearts in this bad economic time.

ALERT FROM KINSHIP CIRCLE SUPPORTER / PLEASE CROSS-POST:
6/13/08: Katrina/NOLA Rescuer Dead. Her Animals Need Help!

FROM KINSHIP CIRCLE:
We are shocked and dismayed by the untimely death of devoted New Orleans
rescuer, Linda Potts. For the last 15 or more years of her life, Linda
trapped, rescued and brought hope to homeless animals. Please help Linda’s
surviving companion animals...and/or forward this to others.  
Kinship Circle

ALERT FROM / REPLY TO:
   Charlotte Bass,
table25@bellsouth.net
    Linda Potts, longtime rescuer and resident of New Orleans' Holy Cross 9th
    ward neighborhood, was found dead in her gutted home on June 11, 2008. Linda
    volunteered for ARNO as a feeder/trapper and assisted many other New Orleans
    area rescue organizations with assistance in the field.

    Linda, age 49, lived with her pets in a FEMA trailer next to her gutted
    home. Her death was officially classified as death from 'natural causes' as
    police report that there was no evidence of foul play. There seems to be
    conflicting opinions from neighbors -- as well as suspect evidence found at
    the death scene -- but the important thing right now is to get Linda's pets
    rescued and into foster or permanent homes.

LINDA’S LEFT-BEHIND BABIES... CAN YOU FOSTER OR ADOPT?
    Currently five animals are being held at the LA/SPCA and have been
    transferred in name to ARNO's foster/adoption program. We thank the LA/SPCA
    for allowing these pets to be housed for one week at their facilities. It is
    paramount we move these pets to foster homes quickly, as LA/SPCA and ARNO
    have zero space at their respective shelters.

1. Blackie

Large...a handsome black lab who is just waiting for his next command... a
good, good dog.

2. Lucky

Small...a precious white terrier mix, who reportedly is on daily heart meds.
Scared, shaking a little, but sweet... just doesn't know what is happening.

3. Dixie or Trixie (uncertain about name)
   
Medium...a beautiful cream/red color, not sure of her name yet, a sweet, but
scared girl who obviously misses her Mom. Possibly a collie mix?

4. Tuffy
   
Large...will be the toughest to place... This old man is blind (no eyes),
and almost deaf. He is just an old, handsome pit mix. He was protective of
Linda while living in the FEMA trailer, but seems to be quite gentlemanly at
the shelter with strangers handling him. I am not sure Tuffy gets along well
with other dogs, as Linda never left him alone with the others.

5. The only cat...

...Though there was a black one whom the police saw run away... This guy is
not exactly happy, but we all know how cats can be... He looks nice and
healthy, too. I will try to find out his name.

TO FOSTER OR ADOPT ANY OF LINDA’S PETS, CONTACT ARNO:
   
Charlotte Bass Lilly, ARNO
    
http://www.animalrescueneworleans.org
    504-522-0222 desk & voice mail
    504-289-2777 cell (no voice mail, but text away)

    OR

    Robin Beaulieu, ARNO Shelter Director
    504-913-2328 cell & voice mail (texting is fine, too)

    
These pets have been through a traumatic event, had no contact with anyone
    for at least two days, then were picked up when the police called it in.
    Please help if you can...so Linda can rest in peace...

    -   When cross-posting INCLUDE PHOTOS so people can see these sweet peas.

    -   If you’re fostering and not able, ARNO will list these pets on
        PetFinder, and we’ll help any way we can.

    -   We’re trying to find the vet who has their records, but if they need
        inoculations or health certificates we’ll gladly do this at no charge for
        anyone willing to foster or adopt.

    -   We will also neuter the males after we have a foster or permanent home.

    -   All medicals at our vets included with accepting a pet into your home.

    -   No adoption charge, but an application and vet reference are required.

    -   Rescue groups: We’ll need a copy of your adoption application, contract
        and vet reference.

    for the animals, always, Charlotte Bass Lilly

Justice For An Animal Rescuer

Target:

Frederick County Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney Glenn Williamson

Created by:

Supporters of Alla McGeary & Stella

We need your help to stop a miscarriage of Justice!  The Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney in Frederick County, Virginia is attempting to prosecute Alla McGeary (a well-known and well-respected 60 year old animal rescue volunteer) for trying to save a young Doberman Pinscher named Stella, and to potentially charge Alla under a FELONY charge. It's a shame animal cruelty cases are not pursued as vigorously. We need your support and your voice now. 


 

In the spring of 2006, Stella, a young stray female Doberman Pinscher with a front leg deformity (known as lobster claw) was placed by DAR&E (Doberman Assistance, Rescue & Education) with a veterinarian to foster. This placement proved to be totally unsuitable for her.  AFTER 9 months in this foster home, DAR&E finally removed her from the negligent situation and placed her with Alla McGeary.  Within days of removing Stella from this negligent foster home, the same Board of Directors of DAR&E reversed their decision and decided to allow this same foster home to ADOPT Stella.  Alla McGeary, who was Stella's foster parent, refused the adoption based on the months-long demonstrated sub-par care, coupled with the negative Home Visit report and numerous other documented statements made by those involved in the 9 months that Stella was at this foster home.

Alla stood up for Stella as was her right as the Foster Parent.  For this, she has been arrested; her house, car and outbuildings have been searched and her civil rights have been, and continue to be, violated.

DAR&E (who by their own numerous admissions may not even be the owner of the dog) obtained an Arrest Warrant by making a sworn statement to a magistrate that they did own the dog in question.

DAR&E has also been negligent with the care of other dogs placed with them by shelters.

DAR&E has protected and made excuses when one of their own was charged with animal cruelty and neglect.

This story is long and we strongly encourage you to go to 
http://www.mypromisetostella.com/  to read a more in-depth account of what has been taking place. 


 

There are many reasons to sign this petition.  You can sign because you want to support Alla McGeary in her fight.  You can sign because you love animals.  You can sign because you support civil rights and the fair application of those rights.  You can sign because you abhor the justice system being hijacked.  You can sign because taxpayer dollars should not be used to fund a personal vendetta.

We need your help to stop a miscarriage of Justice!  The Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney in Frederick County, Virginia is attempting to prosecute Alla McGeary (a well-known and well-respected 60 year old animal rescue volunteer) for trying to save a young Doberman Pinscher named Stella, and to potentially charge Alla under a FELONY charge. It's a shame animal cruelty cases are not pursued as vigorously. We need your support and your voice now. 


 

In the spring of 2006, Stella, a young stray female Doberman Pinscher with a front leg deformity (known as lobster claw) was placed by DAR&E (Doberman Assistance, Rescue & Education) with a veterinarian to foster. This placement proved to be totally unsuitable for her.  AFTER 9 months in this foster home, DAR&E finally removed her from the negligent situation and placed her with Alla McGeary.  Within days of removing Stella from this negligent foster home, the same Board of Directors of DAR&E reversed their decision and decided to allow this same foster home to ADOPT Stella.  Alla McGeary, who was Stella's foster parent, refused the adoption based on the months-long demonstrated sub-par care, coupled with the negative Home Visit report and numerous other documented statements made by those involved in the 9 months that Stella was at this foster home.

Alla stood up for Stella as was her right as the Foster Parent.  For this, she has been arrested; her house, car and outbuildings have been searched and her civil rights have been, and continue to be, violated.

DAR&E (who by their own numerous admissions may not even be the owner of the dog) obtained an Arrest Warrant by making a sworn statement to a magistrate that they did own the dog in question.

DAR&E has also been negligent with the care of other dogs placed with them by shelters.

DAR&E has protected and made excuses when one of their own was charged with animal cruelty and neglect.

This story is long and we strongly encourage you to go to
