Jae Pea - I run Players for Pits. What the article says is that Lauren Weber (the volunteer) triedRead More to get the guy to hand them over to animal control in order to just get them out of the cold. In Chicago rescues like our own can monitor what comes into animal control so we were waiting for the puppies to come in. However, he refused to turn them over, most likely in fear of getting in trouble. Animal control can seize a dog is abuse is seen or documented. They were not requesting the puppies be turned over. The volunteer was. What my rescue was able to do was step in and make sure that these puppies did not need to go to animal control and instead went directly to our rescue and 3 others who had foster homes set up and waiting. We are working on pressing charges further but its a long process. To follow their story please follow us on facebook where we post updates on the puppies. facebook.com/playersforpits

It says that the pups were bitten by older dogs. Were older dogs left at the site? What conditionRead More were they in. Great that the pups were out but won't this owner just breed more?

This is the Englewood District of Shitcago people. The aggregate IQ of Englewood is 50, the crimeRead More rate there is one of the highest in the city. These generations of welfare recipients treat their children the same way they treat their dogs. Lauren, you're one brave lady going into that area to rescue the pups for sure. Areas like this will never change, the hoods have been around for years, and the abuse, and killings will continue daily. This isn't racist people, it's factual.

Sandy Hook One Year Later Grandparents, parents and siblings mourned; A town, a state, a nation wasRead More torn. No one could feel their fear or their plight; But the Angels were there waiting in a pillar of light. They didn’t understand their fright or fear; There wasn’t an eye that held back a tear. As each soul passed the Angels reached out; Taking each by the hand this there’s no doubt. When the last little heart beat its last beat, Jesus was there and raised them to their feet. He led the way and they were all made new; The children, the teachers, the nurse and the principle too. If you doubt this and ask why; why; why? God understands why you still cry. 2000 years ago God’s heart was broken too; When His Son was killed after speaking for you. God gave His Son life and overcame His death; Just as He did with yours after their last breath. God give these families comfort to know of their fate; Let them know You were waiting there at Your gate. To the families at Sandy Hook Elementary School: There was no one, there were no words, there was nothing anyone could say or do to help you deal with your loss except the ones closest to you. Keep hold of that person closest to you, hold them closer and tighter than you have ever held someone before, and have faith in God’s word. When it was all over there was one soul left with an outstretched hand, Jesus looked down at him and said; I’m sorry, but your soul is damned.

Wonder when businesses outside of the downtown area will be included? Many of them are also eagerRead More to help, and with the ease of parking, some might be easier to access for those willing to help.

I have helped transport dogs that have been rescued from puppy mills. These are usually theRead More "breeder" dogs that have spent their whole lives in horrible conditions, forced to produce litter after litter of puppies. These poor animals are usually in bad shape. Their fur is matted and dirty, They often have eye and ear infections, along with other injuries. They freak out when you try to walk them on the grass, because they have never been outside and don't know what grass is. They are scared, and the look in their eyes is pure sadness. But these are the lucky ones; the ones that the mill owner has agreed to surrender when their usefulness is over. Many mill owners will just shoot or destroy the used up dogs. Please consider adopting your next pet from a shelter or rescue group. If you have your heart set on a particular breed, almost every breed has a rescue group. You can find them easily through a simple internet search.
