    We know. I used to pick up every stray that I saw walking along the road. Then there was a Parvo epidemic an d even though my dogs had their shots, I was still afraid to bring strange dogs home. It also began to get quite expensive. Can't watch the PB and Parolees alot because I can't take it!

    The punishment for animal cruelty is just a slap on the wrist, at least here in CA. Makes my blood boil when I hear about heartless acts that so called "owners" do to their pets. Just last night, after reading this thread and crying about it, I had the radio on and heard of a local guy who killed his chihuaha by intentionally running over it in an alleyway. He got arrested but is currently out on bail and awaiting trial in March. I really hope he gets a severe punishment for what he did but unfortunately, I doubt that will happen.

    I really admire you for that. I couldn't approach this one. I wanted to, I would have wrapped him in blankets and poured him tea if I could but it seemed I should have kept my distance, especially knowing help was right there.

    I agree completely! They just recently made a "law" here in this county(the sheriff has worked with the humane society) against animal cruelty. It's a joke-probably $50 fine, but at least there is SOMETHING now. Never was. The farmer that lives behind me had a pile of 7 dead cows right against my back fence(on his side) two summers ago. The wind comes up from that way in the summer. The smell was unbearable. Someone called the law, and he burned them. BUT they had starved to death-nothing was done about that. He makes more money from the gov. claiming losses that he ever does farming. To top it off-HE was farmer of the year two years ago!! What a sorry world.....

    One time my husband and I were going down the highway, and it was a terrible storm. I saw a beautiful German Shepherd running alonside the road. He looked very scared. I told my husband to pull over. He said"what if he bites you" I said Oh well, than he can stay in the rain! I opened the car door, and he leaped into my lap. Poor guy, all the pads on his feet were bleeding. He had tags on his collar with a vets name on it(rabies tag). So we took him to that vet, and he knew the dog. His owner was a teacher in the town. She was so happy we picked him up! She said he was in her fenced yard, and the storm suddenly came and he was terrified of thunder. He must have jumped the fence! She was going to leave school to get him in. The kicker was that we had my father in law's brand new car-and there were bloody paw prints all over. It took a lot of scrubbing, but we got the blood out before we returned the caR!!!

    @Manydogs, that's a wonderful story! I love hearing stuff like this.

    btw, I'm a huge fan of Pit Bulls and Parolees and always have to have a box of Kleenex right by me!

    sometimes I have to turn it off (PB and Parolees) because I can't take it! If I were younger, I would move down there just to help!(but I guess I'd have to go to jail first.)

    This story is just heartbreaking… I've been so worried about all the animals in this state, people are so damn cruel around here it's pathetic!!! I saw some pics on FB of some dogs that froze to death around Knoxville in outside cages that were LOCKED… they were trying to get out. It just absolutely KILLS ME… I just pray that karma or God will give them what they deserve, because I know around here they will just get a slap on the wrist…

    I do believe they have volunteers there too.

    My mom is a prosecutor in a pretty large city and any time it comes to animals.. she slaps on the biggest fine she's allowed. If it were up to her it would certainly not be a slap on the wrist, across the face to say the least. I don't think she deals with abuse cases, at least that I know of.
    What an awful story. my childhood dog, Frazier, came from a similar situation. People... sigh.

    That's right @Manydogs, you don't have to be a parolee to volunteer there, silly! I have this dream of one day taking a road trip to New Orleans and visiting the Villalobos rescue center one day.
