Let me say this first, this is not about politics or healthcare. It's not about Obama or anyone else in the government. But something has to be done about this. I'm not asking for help, but I am asking you to help the Humane Society. They may need it with what they are doing.
So, I've spoken with my wife about this. I didn't want to make waves in the family, but I just couldn't let this go without someone hearing about it.
About 600 dogs and cats (only about 15) were taken by the Humane Society from a residence in Mabank, TX.
You may wonder why I'm writing this. Well, it's my wife's grandmother that runs this alleged puppy mill. She has ignored all the advice from family members. She has ignored the warnings from the Humane Society. She even ignored the advice from her lawyer to not go on television. She won't be able to ignore the handcuffs when they get slapped on her.
In truth, this isn't about her. This is about the dogs and the help the Humane Society is going to need to care for them all. They need blankets, food, money, or anything else you can give them. They will need people to adopt these dogs once they are in good health. Hells, even prayers would help now. Not that I think that will do much good, but hey, if it makes you feel better.
I don't expect this to make the rec list. I don't care if it does. If just one of you will give something to help the Humane Society with this, then I will have done what I set out to do for those animals.
Look, I know this barely rates as a blip on the radar of the events of the day. But those dogs didn't do anything wrong. They don't deserve to be abandoned. Many of them would make great pets to loving families. And, yes, the Humane Society has it's faults. But they are doing the right thing to take those animals from her. There are a great deal of volunteers giving up their time and skills to help.
I'm going to try and include a couple links to the story, so you know I'm not pulling one over on you. It shouldn't be hard to look it up on the internet. It seems to have made it's way around the net on it's own.
Ok, I think this should give you the idea. Thanks again for anything you can do for these animals.
Here's a link to the Humane Society of the United States.
This story happens to be the top story on their website. It's titled "Rescued".
