The animals might have been marked for death had Feldstein not intervened when another rescue facility in western Montana folded this winter.

"I only take animals that others consider throwaways," said Feldstein, 66


All Farkiness aside, thank God for people like her.

That'll do, goat/sheep. That'll do.

And this is why a lot of people have greater feelings towards animals rather than other humans.

So, buying Mad Magazine as a kid did some good and it wasn't a waste of money like my mom said.

Heh, I remember Spy vs. Spy, Alfred E. Neuman.

I think animals have a lot more feelings and compassion then humans give them credit for.

That's a pretty great story - from all angles.

Actually, she's a buck-and-a-quarter quarter horse.

Absolutely loved this story. Few things make me as happy as knowing that there are people out there who have a real passion for taking care of animals that really need it.

I tried to find her so I could help but she is unlisted....anyone?

I'm glad Sissy's found a safe home. When she was at my uncle's sheep ranch, they were going to put her down because of her age, until I tried to run away with her one spring night during the lamb slaughter.

We didn't get very far, just a couple of miles. I was only a little kid. And it was cold, so very cold...

/can still hear the screaming.

Whoever owned that dog originally should be drug out into the street and shot.

It's bad enough to keep an animal chained up outside it's entire life, but to then proceed to do shiat like piss on it?

Why would these people ever even get a dog to begin with?

/had a rescue beardie
//owners kept it in it's crate 24/7 for the first 2 years of her life
///people are monsters

rrhoid rage: The horse eats goats?


Nope. The horse eats oats, and goats eat oats. Little lambs eat ivy. A kid'll eat ivy, too. Wouldn't you?
