Sad news from the Beagle Freedom Project. ANTI-ANIMAL/ANTI-TAXPAYER lobbyists from the University of Minnesota secretly killed the “Beagle Retirement Bill.” These greedy big-government lobbyists even joked with each other that “dogs and cats are dead” upon defeating the common-sense bill. Funny, isn’t it?
You see, animal experimenters are ADDICTED to your TAX dollars; they think your money is an ENTITLEMENT and will do whatever it takes to keep the BIG GOVERNMENT gravy train rolling! They would rather KILL these animals than let the public know how your tax dollars are being wasted on cruel animal experiments! Next time the joke will be on them. We’ll keep you updated on this important campaign.
The Beagle Retirement Bill Update: We are sad to report that University of Minnesota secretly and successfully killed our bill…. Although this animal research institution did not have to courage to publicly state their position and assured us they were not opposed to the bill, their lobbyists made sure it did not make it into the final draft of the legislation. The lobbyists even joked with each other that “dogs and cats are dead” – the bill and the animals. Funny, isn’t it?
This underscores exactly why this law is needed. Can you trust such an institution to voluntarily do what is right? They would rather kill these animals than let the public be reminded of what they are doing to them.
This isn’t over. Minnesota was our test run and this same bill will be brought up again in MN and 4 others states in the next session. Next time the joke will be on them.

ANIMAL EXPERIMENTS FAILING AGAIN: “One of the most stunning failures of the animal model approach in cancer research was its prediction that smoking was safe. Animal experiments largely FAILED to demonstrate a smoking cancer connection.” – Dr. Ray Greek.

Quoted directly from his mom:
“Max is a freakin’ awesome dog – sorry if you are getting bored with hearing about him, but we are absolutely amazed and what a great dog he is! Shame on the family for never getting to know this beautiful creature – every day his personality comes out more and more. … Walking Max on the horse farm Friday was heaven – no pulling, stayed right with me, and stopped when I stopped – I would swear he was trained! Some of the mare horses that had have babies in the field walked right up to the fence line when he was on the other side out of curiosity – they were not frightened or protective at all. At times, we had 4 – 5 mares stretching and extending as far as they could to come nose to nose. They would actually follow Max as we continued down the lane. Even one of the fillies came up to the fence line to see him! Nothing fazed Max.
We see more and more alertness in him as the days go on and he is actually starting to groom himself as of today – we haven’t seen this before. No accidents since Friday. He is eating Blue Senior (approximately 3 cups 2x daily) and taking his meds with raw bacon without any issues!
Yesterday afternoon he fully rolled over and had his dad pet his belly and is now offering his paw. Cool dog!
Went to Pet & Friends last night and got him a large thick orthopedic dog bed for him, but will have to order a larger one here soon. He loves it – goes upstairs at night and on main floor during the day for him.”
And guess who will be attending the event on May 18th at the Grand Opening of the Brandywine Ace Pet and Farm in West Chester? MAX!!!!!!! You can come on out and meet him and give him that hug and kiss u have been dying to do since u first saw that sad picture of him chained outside his doghouse. Address is 1150 Pocopson Road, West Chester, PA 19382 from 9a-4pm!
Oh and here’s one more…..See More

Dare has stepped up to take this little man. Stay tuned for more information. His vetting needs are many. If you can help us with the costs of that, we would sure appreciate it! go to our website and find the “donate now” button. Every penny we raise goes to our pups!
D#1018468 “Charlie” a senior, neutered male dauchaund, approx 13lbs. Charlie was brought into the shelter over the weekend. Upon exam bloody/lea…king urine was noted, a HUGE bladder stone (presumed) was felt and really needs to be removed ASAP. Charlie also has a significant heart murmur and severe dental disease. We tested him and he is Heartworm negative. We need a Rescue commitment on him by Wednesday May 8th at NOON. Dr. Centonze has offered to do the bladder stone removal if a rescue commitment is made. Again the commitment needs to be made by Wednesday May8th at NOON. Charlie is very nice, with no aggression seen at the shelter, loves his canned food. Does anyone have any space for this sweet old guy, so he can spend the rest of his days in a home? Dr. Centonze will perform the bladder stone removal if we have a firm commitment.

He gets no attention. He drinks his water out of the metal, rusted pail u see next to his doghouse. There is no food. There is no shade. His ears are full of infection – one swollen shut with pus literally pouring out of it. His tail doesn’t wag. His head hangs. His spirit is broken.
WE MUST STOP THIS.
The owners told Hilary they will surrender him and we will take him.
We expect high vet bills – and are asking for anyone who would be willing to help us by sponsoring Max. You can make any donation directly to our vet, Keystone Animal Hospital, once we get him.
You all are amazing, wonderful supporters. Without any of you, we could not have saved all that we have.
Please, help us help Max….
Click and point. One second of your time can change his life forever.
Lincoln University, PA: I have been sharing this guy for weeks and he’s had no interest. This is MAX, an 8 year old shepherd mix who had spent his entire life outdoors. When his owners are home, he is left to roam loose, and when they are away he is chained to a dog house. He is reportedly very gentle with their young children and their beagle (who is an inside dog). He had a seizure condition which is easily managed with daily medication. Max deserves to know what a real home feels like with a good brush out and exercise. He is going to have another rough summer outside in the heat with that coat. If anyone can help, please comment here or message me on facebook. The family would like him gone sooner than later and he it’s running out of time.

Two Days Without Food!
Please help at www.bit.ly/HelpThe400Sasha Pejčić cares for 400 dogs at his breathtaking animal shelter in Serbia. The dogs eat, play, run and sleep together peacefully. Most have been taken off of the streets and nursed back to health (also spayed and neutered) and now live in a large pack in a disused riding school. At night they sleep in stables in groups of about 15. However funding has suddenly slowed to a trickle.The Austrian organization that was supporting this shelter is no longer able to meet the financial needs here and the dogs did not eat for two days recently. To understand how this situation came about, you must know how the shelter came to be.
This rescue effort was born several years ago when Sasha found four puppies near a very busy street and he moved them somewhere safer. He began feeding them and, a few days later, he found another eight puppies on the way to feeding the first four. He bought a couple of dog houses for shelter and came back every day to feed and water the dogs. People noticed this and started to drop off more and more puppies and, in no time there were 70 of them. Sasha managed to finance their care on his own found a disused riding school that he could rent and the owner agreed he could keep dogs there. A homeless man Zoran noticed him feeding the puppies and started to help.Together, they started caring for really sick and injured dogs. Sasha would nurse them back to health and bring them to the ‘shelter’ that he and Zoran had started building. When he first rented the disused riding school it was overgrown and the roof of the stables was in a bad way. With the help of friends, family and a lot of hard work, Sasha and Zoran transformed it into the shelter that it is today. Over the last few years, these men have offered hope and healing to hundreds of dogs – some of whom were terribly injured and malnourished when they arrived. For many, this is their first ‘home’.Dog food in Serbia is considered a novelty as most people feed their dog stale bread dunked in leftovers, therefore the cost of kibble is high. Sasha feeds the dogs kibble mixed with donated scraps of meat and baked goods from shop keepers. A couple of years ago he managed to find an organization in Austria who started to help him, but sadly this year they have not been able to cover all the costs and for the first time since Sasha has rescued his dogs, they have no food.While volunteers build a plan for long term support here, the Harmony Fund is collecting urgently needed donations to purchase dog food and to pay for veterinary medicines.

This dog and her companion are pure breeds and the hunter who owned them paid a lot of money for them. But he no longer wanted them so had condemned them to die.
The dogs were surviving on loaves of stale bread, when he remembered, and water perhaps once a week. The female was chained and shows signs of recently giving birth and the male was so frightened and skinny. We now must get authorities to search for puppies on the property.
Rescuer Vivienne Wharton got the dogs to safety today, on her birthday of all days. In fact, this week we at the Harmony Fund are in the midst of sponsoring a blitz of rescues, going behind fences and inside dark barns in several countries to take dogs like these away from those who have betrayed them. The irony of this is that a dog like this would lay down its life to protect her ‘owner’. Now, today, despite the danger of confronting these abusers, rescuers risked their lives to do what’s right.
You just have to see the RESCUE PHOTOS! The dogs exude relief and amazement. ►Enjoy the photos here: www.bit.ly/Just_Rescued
Just a few months ago, Tessa was newly blind, unable to walk and without much hope of survival. Together, she and I took a leap of faith to help find a way for her to live. The journey Tessa and I have been through can only be described by one word… MAGICAL. And today, the prestigious The Huffington Post is helping us celebrate…See More

URGENT!!! PEANUT (the emaciated dog in the news) needs a HOME or new FOSTER! His foster can’t keep him anymore!!! If he isn’t adopted or doesn’t have a new foster, the rescue (NYC Second Chance Rescue) will have to put him in boarding (which isn’t good). PLEASE SHARE!! PLEASE HELP HIM!
Here’s the post from the rescue—
You may remember Peanut from the news last year — he was found emaciated, no the verge of death and very dejected. Peanut is a very sweet dog who is housetrained, good on the leash, and is calm and well behaved. He has some OCD issues, tail chases. He has made leaps and bounds on his guarding issues with people, but might still guard with animals. He can go to a home with older children. Peanut wants to be top dog, so it would be best if you have no dogs. Please share Peanut for a home. It would be heartbreaking to have saved him from the brink of death, only to be dealt this blow that could set him back!
If you can foster or want to adopt Peanut, please put in apps here. http://

Diane Rowles is much like any other wife and mother. She makes sure the boys put on their coats before heading outside, that her husband eats his greens and that the dishes are washed before bedtime. But in addition to that classic role, Diane is also an extreme animal rescuer who has lifted thousands of starving dogs and cats out of the below-zero winter landscape. Yet one day soon, Diane may also become the newest inmate in Bulgarian prison. Her crime is simply being ‘too poor’ to rescue animals.

Today, PRECIOUS has been placed in caring, capable and gentle hands. Please continue your thoughts and prayers for her. She is only about 7 months old and deserves the best chance possible to recover and thrive. Certainly there are no guarantees as her immune system has been compromised and she is most likely unvaccinated, BUT there are many who are willing to put their hearts on their sleeves and give her their all. Welcome to rescue PRECIOUS … we are all rooting for you!
HER FOSTER HOME: An experienced Veterinary Technician who will ensure PRECIOUS receives all the love and care necessary to ensure her recovery. (You are an A.N.G.E.L. Kim!)

I am your animal control officer. I am not the dreaded “dog catcher” or the “murderer” you call me. It is not I who allows your pet to roam the streets, to contract diseases from other free-roaming animals, to be hit by passing motorists or poisoned by rotting garbage. I am the one who must look into those sick, pain-glazed eyes, try to remove the animal without causing it further pain, and then humanely “put it to sleep” to put an end to its suffering.It is not I who allows your pet to breed, then dumps the unwanted puppies and kittens on roadsides and in shelters. I’m the one who must find the tiny animals before they die of starvation, exposure or disease, and as an act of mercy, exterminate them. It hurts me to be forced to kill hundreds of thousands of animals each year, but because of your irresponsibility, I have no choice.It is not I who abandons unwanted animals on farm roads, telling myself some friendly farmer will surely take them in and give them a good home. But I am the one who must pick up the frightened animal who waits in vain for its beloved master, wondering why it has been abandoned. I am the one who must help that friendly farmer trap, tranquilize or kill that animal because it has begun to roam in packs with other abandoned hungry animals, killing livestock, fowl and game.I am not the one who breeds and fights dogs in the name of “sport”. But I am the one who fights the breeders and participants, and must pick up the dead and dying animals that have been left behind.It is not I who keeps a pet confined in an area too small-without food, water, shelter or exercise. But I must deal with the irresponsible owner who does.It is not I who refuses to spend the time and money to keep up regular inoculations that all pets require. But I am the one who must pick up the sick animal who is dying of a preventable disease.
So remember, the next time your child is bitten by a stray dog, your trash is dumped and scattered, your pet is lost, stolen, poisoned or hit by a car, it is the animal control officer you call-not the “dog catcher.” The next time your pet is picked up, or you are cited for neglecting or abusing it, remember I am only trying to get you to fulfill your responsibility to your pet, your neighbor and yourself.
Do not scorn me. Respect me, for I am the product of your irresponsibility. I love animals and I care.
