Christine Laudieri objected to the couple not being able to possess any pets as her children have cats in the house, she said.
...
"By the defendant's own admission, they last saw veterinary care [for the dog] in 2005," he said. "They admitted to not being able to take care of the animal."

Too many people these days admit to not having any money to care for their animals, then continue to adopt new ones.
It's a shame that these monsters will probably get slapped with community service and a fine.

I'd love to find the guy who had my rescue rottweiler before me and kick him in the balls. Hard. So hard that he chokes on them.

My Carmine (the big Ragu FTW!) was neglected by his former owner.  A pox on his house.

Now he's spoiled rotten like his brother Enzo, and never stops wagging.

My bichon frise was locked in her crate while her former owner went on a two-week bender. The people who rescued her said she'd clearly been in the crate the whole time, judging from the amount of feces.

She's really messed up in the head and basically untrainable. I've had her for four years now, and she will still walk into the room and poop on the floor right in front of you rather than tell you she needs to go out.

I have an ancient Poodle that was rescued and I am not getting a kick out of this story.
 
2013-02-21 11:03:41 AM  
My awful spoiled beast was dumped at the local shelter with a shattered foreleg and a severely damaged eye.  Apparently she had been hit by a car because her former owners didn't bother keeping her leashed and then were unwilling to pay the cost of their irresponsibility.

 So she was dumped, suffering, but had such a sweet personality even in pain that a local foster group paid to have her rebuilt.  Better. Stronger. Faster.   Now she has me, and a strong harness/leash.

I'd still push the former owners out in front of a car and leave them to suffer though.

Whenever someone says: "I love animals!" I class them with the same abuse shiatbags that defend their mysogyny with the phrase "I love women!" There's too many people out there buying animals as furniture or living stuffed toys rather than living creatures that need to be cared for, and who are effectively permanent infants in terms of responsibility.
 
2013-02-21 11:07:15 AM  
Monsters such as these do not deserve to be legally (or otherwise) recognized as human beings.

Civilized humanity owes a debt of gratitude to everyone here who has posted about their rescued animals. Keep up the good work, guys!

This is the reason I had to quit doing rescue work. The sh*t that people do to their pets is sickening.
 
2013-02-21 11:17:02 AM  
This is why I could never be a vet, or work for one. I'd be too damned proud of killing the creatures. And my house would be filled with all the animals I'd saved by doing so.

I've got two pups who came out of a hoarding situation and, after years of never being allowed outside, it's just unrealistic to expect to completely untrain those bathroom habits. I'd say we're they're 95% perfect, but, yeah, people disappoint me.

My baby Minnie, when I found her dumped on the street, full of fleas and worms (note bloated tummy).  Sweetest dog in the universe.  When I picked her up, she literally hugged me.

She grew up. Still gives hugs.  Has a brother and sister now too.

Bring back the pillory and public flogging. Seriously.

My Pomeranian was found wandering the road near Fort Knox at about 7 weeks old: evidently somebody ditched him in a residential area thinking he'd quickly be rescued, which he was. He wasn't otherwise abused or neglected and clearly hadn't been out long, the rescuers thought less than a day. The ex thinks the culprit was a backyard breeder: he's gorgeous but "not show quality for the breed" (and not quite right for any kind of dog).

The second puppy, a Border Collie mix (she thinks the other input is rat terrier, an old lady up the street thinks Corgi, I think hound from Hell) was abandoned by a former neighbor; they had another dog, some kind of Chihuahua mix, who was so scared of everything that she tore off up the street through some back yards and we couldn't find her.

Those were minor cases that could be settled with a monetary fine or 10 lashes.

The people from the article should be manacled, stoned almost to death, and left to suffer. It's better to surrender or euthanize a pet you can't care for than to let it get anything like that.

I pulled my cat from a two-bedroom apartment shared by two adults, their two children, at least three cats (other than the litter she was born in) two puppies, and a living room FULL of tanks of reptiles. Apparently these idiots thought it cheaper to let their indoor-outdoor female spit out litters rather than take her in to get fixed. Idiots.

I volunteer for German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County and the stories a lot of these poor dogs go through are horrific. It is also quite fulfilling to see these dogs placed with loving, caring families. We get dogs left in foreclosed homes, hoarders, drug dealers, owner turn in and from shelters when their time is up. Every year we place about 400 dogs and I'm very proud of the work we do. This couple deserve jail time and hell.

I don't know why I read these threads. Animal abuse pushes my rage button SO hard. It makes my stomach hurt to read it and then I read the rescue stories and get all weepy. I don't know why I put myself through this.

Really, fark those people.   I hope the DO get jail time.

I wouldn't let them have a shower, soap or toilet paper.  No clean clothes, sheets or dishes. No brushing their teeth the whole damn time they were incarcerated and you could only wish it was for a long as that poor dog suffered.

It's an arraignment hearing, you always plead not guilty. You make your real plea later on when you're indicted. Being a lawyer ain't cheap.

People who are horrible enough to be cruel to their pets are the kinds of people who are ALSO very likely to be involved with rape, murder, torture and other assorted strains of violence towards their fellow human beings as well:

My Molly was left in a box at the side of the road with her brother. She was a big white fluffy mutt. I got her as a puppy from a girl I went to school with. Her dad found them on his way home from work. When I took her home, I spent the afternoon picking nearly 200 ticks off of her. After giving her a flea and tick bath, I proceeded to pick off 90 more of the nasty buggers. She was so anemic, she couldn't walk. Tummy all bloated from worms. Diagnosed with hip dysplasia early on. Pretty much had to teach her to walk outside. After about a month, I had her close to house trained and healthy. When she got too big to live in the city house with us, she moved to my grandma's place in the country, where she could run and play as much as she wanted. The vet said later that being able to run free pretty much corrected the hip dysplasia. Such a good dog.

I don't like your assertion. Are you saying you suspect anyone who claims they love animals to be liars?

I love animals and I would never neglect or cause them to suffer. Perhaps you're projecting?

Someone once left a puppy tied to a rail behind my apartment building all day in the sun with no water or anything. I took her out some water and meat and watched for a while, when nobody came to get her, i took her in for a cpl of weeks til I found her a nice home on a farm. I'd never been a "dog person" before that, but fell right in love with her. Couldn't keep her because of apt rules, but the super let me hang onto her until i found her a home. He was a good man.

My Squeaky is from a rescue shelter. She was found roaming the streets. Since she already has spay scars, she must have been someone's cat. When I got her, she had 2 types of worms and had just started gaining weight (after being found weighing 5 pounds!).

She's now happy, worm-free, and about 9ish pounds. She is the sweetest cat I have known - so patient and tolerant. The only things she hisses at are children (which might have been a bit of why she was let go) and the vet. I'm so glad I found her!

My Wills was adopted by a nineteen year-old girl from a breeder at 8 weeks old because have you seen a miniature schnauzer puppy?  There are few things in the world as freaking adorable as a mini schnauzer puppy.  Then when he got older and was a high energy dog, she didn't want to mess with him because she couldn't keep him in her purse and all that.  So, she left him in a crate.  For days on end.  And gave him a few Milk Bone to eat.  Her father visited her and saw what she doing and took the dog away from her.
He ended up with me through a relative that thought I needed a dog to go with my new house.  I wasn't even unpacked yet...my furniture was still wrapped in plastic.  But he walked in and declared the place his.  Took him to the vet, he should have a weighed 15 pounds and he weighed nine.  I got him dewormed and groomed (he was matted and stunk so bad) and now I have the sweetest little cuddle monster that ever lived.
If I ever meet the girl that treated Wills so poorly, I will kick her in the vagina so hard she will enter menopause instantly.
If I ever find the girl that adopted him and had him in such horrible shape

My mother lives at the end of a street across from a city park.  She has rescued a number of abandoned pets over the years.  A couple of times people have even abandoned their pets on her property.  My current dog was one; a little white poodle mix mom found sitting on a lawnchair in her front year as a puppy.

I once followed mewing noises to find a tiny kitten in my mom's backyard.  WTF?  The yard has a solid 8-foot brick fence,  I was forced to conclude someone had tossed the little guy over the fence from the other side.  He was so thirsty he made little growling noises over the water I gave him.  Mom kept him until he went to kitty heaven, her favorite pet to this day.

Whats wrong with people?

I'll never understand where such incredible cruelty towards animals comes from. I can't get through those Sara McLachlan commercials, either.  I had a puppy when I was a kid and remember all about him, but Tippy got distemper and crawled under the house one day and died. I'll never have another pet until I have the room and resources to spoil it. I admire so much all of you who have rescued animals and changed their world. Bless you!!
