A #Florida animal shelter is under fire after an audit revealed it was engaging in non-standard euthanasia procedures and conducting bizarre behavioral tests among the animals.

“During the test, the dog attacked a cat and caused such harm that the cat had to be euthanized,” the audit of #Brevard County Animal Services reads, according to WKMG-TV. ”The dog was then euthanized on account of its own behavior.”

#PETITION ~ Facebook: Do not release your new app feature that listens to ( & taps) users’ conversations.--> http://action.sumofus.org/a/Facebook-app-taps-phones/?sub=fb
This is by far the creepiest thing Facebook has done to collect data from its users - and it has to stop.

... "We know we have Chagas disease in Texas, and Texas is emerging as a hot spot," said Dr. Sarah Hamer, assistant professor and associate wildlife biologist with Texas A&M University's College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. "There is a growing crisis of canine Chagas in Texas." ... Chagas disease is hardly an unknown malady. The disease long has been a major human health issue in Mexico, Central and South America, where it is estimated to infect as many as 8 million people and annually cause as many 25,000 human deaths.

Concerned that something associated with the kennel was causing the sudden deaths, Lawrence sent one of the deceased dogs to Texas A&M Veterinary Diagnostic Lab for a necropsy. While there are no hard data on the number of dogs in Texas that are infected with the parasite causing Chagas disease or the number that die from its effects, anecdotal evidence indicates hundreds and probably thousands of Texas dogs die from its effects each year.

DRACO IS LOCATED IN #LACEY  *#WASHINGTON*. DESPERATELY NEEDS A HOME ASAP! OWNER HAS SCHEDULED APP'T @ VET TO EUTH HIM JUNE 8th. (see 2 pics)

Draco is 3 yrs old, 90 lbs, neutered, up to date on shots, house trained & crate trained, he loves his crate. He likes to ride in the car, he LOVES the water (beach, lake & pond). Draco sleeps in the same bed as the cat, he likes other dogs and sometimes he just wants to be left alone by other dogs. 

The owner said "Today he bit my mom on the hand It was her fault because she stuck her hand in his kennel when he had hidden food he stole from the kitchen in there. I wasn't home at the time. She lives with us. He scratched my oldest son on the arm a few weeks ago when Draco was chewing his bone. My son grabbed the bone and that's when Draco scratched him on his arm, no puncture wound or anything serious . Draco is stressed and doesn't get the exercise he needs, we lost our house with a yard and have all been stuck in a home and yard too small for all of us. I just went back to work so he is in his kennel now a lot more during the day. I would drive Draco anywhere and PAY any and all of his expenses, buy him food every month, pay for his vet bills, if there was anyone who would take him". If you can save Draco, CONTACT: catahoulas4@yahoo.com

#Tampa #FLORIDA  ~ UPDATE 05/08: OWNER  CALLED, SHE HAS AN APPT TOMORROW (FRI) AT 9:00am TO HAVE HIM PUT DOWN. PLEASE SHARE FOR SHADOW, HIS LIFE DEPENDS ON IT!

If you can save Shadow before Friday 5-9-14 please email catahoulas4@yahoo.com

Shadow is located in Tampa Florida

Shadow is a Labrador/Catahoula mix. He is 1.5 yr old, 65 lbs, neutered, up to date on shots, house and crate trained. 

He is good with other dogs and loves kids. But when the kids run and play he wants to run and play with them, he is very excitable, herds them. He just needs some training but the owner does not want to take the time to train him. 

Shadow loves to snuggle with you and enjoys going on camping trips too. Shadow is very high energy!!!!

  #LEXINGTON  *#NorthCarolina*  – Days after watching the euthanization process of animals at the Davidson County Animal Shelter, Davidson County Commissioners voted Tuesday to continue allowing use of the #GasChamber  

Watching a demonstration of animals being euthanized, hundreds of residents spoke out against it.

"This situation with this gassing, is so archaic," said one resident. "I'm really, I'm enraged that people would still use such a method."

"Lethal injection is a much quicker and peaceful death, and I have unfortunately witnessed it being performed on a few of my beloved pets," said another resident.

Commission also decided to have the sheriff monitor the usage of the gas chamber more closely.

The vet at Eau Gallie Veterinary Hospital (or his drunk intern) has a clever and slightly wacky sense of humor. I'm not sure if I want to give him all my money, or walk slowly away, backwards.

ஜ۩۞۩ஜ The reason a dog has so many friends is because it wags its tail instead of its tongue ´´¯`•.¸¸. ི♥ྀ
Introduction
" Rescued " is my favorite breed ... ♥

☆ I am an animal lover & advocate ~ as such ~ my posts will contain  both the good & bad ~ the pretty & the ugly. 

I have decided not to share publicly _most_ of those posts that reflect disfigurement ~ trauma ~ etc., after I received a comment that I think came from a young person who said that "it made them sad" ~~~ I am often saddened too ~ but I am an adult.  I WILL however post ALL public notices PUBLICLY that I come across that indicate the police are looking for ~ have arrested ~ convicted ~ someone in connection with animal cruelty ~ and if those include a description of why ~ I will include that as well.

I am interested in helping the forgotton paws that for whatever reason end up in shelters ~ both kill-shelters & no-kill shelters.  ALL of these animals need homes ...regardles of whether they are "safe" or not.  I am also interested in helping the volunteers, rescues, vets & myriad others, who also assist in making it possible to save these lives.

*Crossposters* ~ of which I consider myself one ~ (& you know who you are ^♥^) if you share my animals needing homes,  I will share yours ~ this only works if we SHARE & SHARE alike..... so *SHARE* ♥

My family includes dogs ~ they are fun & I am blessed daily by their presence ~ they pretty much go where ever I go....

I may or may not agree with everything I post ~ sometimes to me it's important just to "put it out there"  & let it be further contemplated ~ discussed ~

..daily, I hope for more compassion & kindness to bubble up & surface in the ocean of humanity ~ I believe on drop is just as important as any other ~ & that good done anywhere ... matters ... everywhere.
