Youngstown, OH – Help dead & tortured dogs find justice!

In October, High Caliber K-9 dog training/boarding/daycare business was raided after a woman called police to report that she could not get her dog back from the facility. Humane agents found 7 dead dogs and 12 starving, neglected dogs. Both those living and dead were practically bare bones and living in poor conditions. “Bones, carcasses, decay, it was horrible, it was enough to make you gag and throw up and cry”, said Nikole Owen CEO of Animal Charity.15 counts of animal cruelty and neglect were filed against the owner of the facility, but he is only being brought up on 4 in court. The owners of the dogs need your help to get justice for their dogs! Please, spread the word about this horrible act of animal cruelty. Please contact the following people and demand that Steve Croley pay for what he’s done!

There are two dogs at the Gallia County Animal Shelter in Gallipolis, OH who are in desperate need of adoption, rescue, or foster. They are at a VERY HIGH KILL SHELTER!

Spalding & Griffin, GA-5 animal to be euthanized by Friday!

The following 5 dogs are scheduled to be euthanized between Thursday May 15th and Friday May 16th. The shelter is overflowing and they have been picked because they appear “scared.” This is no reason for them to die. The shelter even allows for a last chance notification, meaning you can sign up to be contacted at the las moment if nobody else claims them.
