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!

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.

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.

My fiance found our wonderful dog Ivy in a field in Bakersfield.  She was emaciated and out in the middle of nowhere in 100 degree heat.  She is the sweetest dog in the universe and whoever dropped her off should rot in hell.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This is the reason I had to quit doing rescue work. The sh*t that people do to their pets is sickening.

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.

Adopted a 5-ish year old German Shepherd in 2000.  She weighed 40lbs, had scars around her neck from where she'd obviously been left tied up for long periods, tested positive for Lymes, and her teeth were filed down.  Had to put her down in 2009 because of arthritis due to the Lymes.  Best dog I ever owned, even more surprising since she'd obviously been abused/neglected.

Current dog is a rescued 14-month-old Great Dane.  Owner bought her so he could tell people he owned a Great Dane and barely looked after her.  Left her outside her entire life with a small shelter she probably outgrew in 3 months.  Left food & water for her every day but that was it--never played w/her or paid any attention to her.  Took me hours to coax her into the house because she'd never been in one before.  Now she's this insane, 115-lb. puppy galloping through my house.

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 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!

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.

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?

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.

CapeFearCadaver: gito: I've got two pups who came out of a hoarding situation and, after years of never being allowed outside

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.

Chinchillazilla: 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'm not SURE this didn't predate (or cause) the two-week bender


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.

/they just laid pee pads on the floor, and when those got soaked they laid more on top

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.
