You see stray dogs being beat, ridiculed, kicked at, hit, being run over, WITHOUT any sense of remorse, in fact it's sickening how some people seem to enjoy it. I once saw a group of guys in a big truck see a stray dog and speed up as if to run over it on purpose, as they left one of them stuck his head out of the window and look back and laugh at the crying dog! I was disgusted, sad, angry. The poor, whimpering dog ran in a dazed state and collapsed a few feet in front of me. I'm still haunted with that image even though it was so long ago. The sad thing is that it's so common . Nobody else seemed to be disturbed, I was the only one practically crying. I'm glad I haven't witnessed something like that here, if I ever saw anybody abuse or neglect an animal I will not contain myself...those people would get a piece of me.

That is horrific! It goes on here too.....I saw it! I arrived at a shelter to do rescue and they had a Jack Russel Terrier in a kennel with its tail cut off by a scissor or knife...some idiot did this! The dog was screaming in pain...I could not stand it and demanded they call a vet..well they did and put the poor thing down! So this goes on right here in America! People that do not do rescue are not aware of what goes on. I am haunted by my images too! And there were many! This is why I had to get out! And now I am in a state where it is worse....sheesh! They have the gas chamber here there are so many. How barbaric is that?

Fortunately there are kind people who care popping out. Just a few weeks ago in the news I heard of a dog rescue shelter in Mexico City that existed thanks to a millionaire benefactor who donates I think it is $70 thousand every month...if it wasn't for that sole man that place wouldn't exist. Thank God for people like him.

That's horrible! That's why I'd rather just keep my eyes and ears shut, I'm too sensitive to that stuff and hearing things like that just outrages and saddens me too much. . I could never work in an animal shelter or be a vet, I love animals too much to see them suffer.

That rich lady that left 2 million for the care of her Bichon supposedly left over 12 million or more towards animal welfare. I wonder if any animals will actually benefit from or see that money helpwise! Alot of safe shelters could be opened with all that money. I hope it comes into perission.
