OMG i never ever thought in a million years that dog kennels were this bad. I sat there and cried and coudlnt believe what i was seeing and how any living person could harm a dog? It was on that cc bairds or whatever his name is but over 600 dogs and they buy from horders or what ever and buy these stolen dogs for reserch. And then this guy that was uncover working there said if the dog had heartworms they would shoot the dog in the head and sell the worm infested heart to reserch. They buy these poor dogs at flea markets and such for 20.00 and then sell them to reserch for 200.00+ I coudlnt believe what i was seeing and cried and my heart sits very heavy in my chest right now. Who buys dogs for reserch??? I just cant believe all what i seen and i tell you i will NEVER EVER forget what i seen and know even more why ppl are so head strong on puppy mills and byb- They are the small part of it - compaired to these many many kennels in the US that have tons of dogs and have them only to sell and make money and my god the ppl that steal them or breed them how ever they get these poor dogs and take them to this cc bairds kennel and just basically drop them off to their death. And the trenches that they dig to bury all of the dead dogs that die for many reasons, the abuse, the starving and the list goes on- Ive never seen anything like this at all and trust me this has changed everythign for me- I cant believe there are so many dogs that suffer this hell. all for money. Why, how , can anyone do this? Im sure many of you have seen this documentary on that kennel that did shut down after this guy going undercover for a few months to show the goverment how bad these dogs are treated, the kennel was shut down and he lost his license and so did his wife and 2 daughters. and they were fined the largest fine ever for a class b breeder/kennel i dont know if they breed dogs jsut bought them and many of them had tags and in a conversation that guy had with this ppl that sell these dogs to this kennel and they said they go around and steal them , and they have paid off their house with all the dogs they sell to this cc bairds guy and to top it off hes a minister also- what the duck???? I just sat there and hugged my dogs and cried and coudlnt believe this was happening and was left to go on for so long and all the other kennels that arent shut down. How can we shut them down?? They would beat the crap out of the dogs and it was the worst thing ive ever ever ever seen and i feel like puking.
Tons of beagle dogs and they would just show you their eyes and those eyes showed the hell they were in and begging for help- How can i as one person do something to stop this for going on? So now i understand more about these kennels and what they are all about. again who wants to buy dogs to kill them and use them as a exsperiment? i would hope that the ppl that bought these dogs would also be punshed. who could look into those big eyes and do them harm? The rescue ppl said that you could tell that most of these dogs were some ones pets, they were socilized and well behaved and had tags on them and collars. Gosh i hope that the owners of those dogs tho didnt see what happend to the ones that didnt make it and to see it was their family pet that was tortured. WOW- what a thing to see. I comend all the ppl on this forum and every where else that stand up for these animals and be their voice and help them find homes and take them in- I do understand now about this and i wasnt seeing the big picture. Yes the little kennels that arnet any better they are breeding them and surly probably sell to who ever and would probably sell to these messed up ppl that want them for reserch. anyone seen this documentary? it was on some werid chanel this morning that my hubby fell asleep on the couch last night and i come out to wake him up and it was on- so i sat down and watched it. still cant believe what i just saw.
I sincerely have stopped watching those things. I just can't handle the emotions and disgust. It's simply incomprehensible. Although... we live in a world of rape, murder, child molestation, serial killing, terrorism. When our world is full of these acts to each other... its not surprising humans can do this to an animal.
It's VILE, frankly there is not a word in any language around the world that describes what this is.
TJ I truly don't know what you saw, but everytime something comes on the radio, or TV about harming animals I turn it off. I can't read the articles. Do I know it happens, Of course, Do I know how bad it is. YES, but I also know I have nightmares, My imagination probably tells me more than I can read. I have said before and I will say again. There is a special place in hell for anyone who harms any kind of animal!!!
What you saw is only the half of it... heartbreaking Yes and disgusting. I know a lot of ppl complain about rescues charging $100 to $200 adoption fees, but this highlights one of the reasons why, not only do the fees help cover costs, they also prevent ppl like the ones you saw adopting dogs to sell to reasearch.
Did you notice a lot of the dogs in the ditch had ID tags and collars?
One of the many scenes that stick out in my mind, was the hound they were forcing onto the scale. He punched it in the head and made it so terrified, it relieved itself right then and there. Then there was the black cocker spaniel that they shot in the head and talked about as if it was a piece of trash...and the dead beagle in the kennel that turned out wasn't quite dead yet because her eyes still barely had life in them, but he couldn't do anything for. She died by the time he checked on her the next morning.
That was the hardest part of the whole thing for me, that he had to stay undercover and wear cameras upon hidden cameras in order to nail these guys and how traumatizing it must have been to sit there and watch this all going on around you day after day, helpless.
Advice is probably the only free thing which people won't take.
I completely agree Flip... the worst thing a person can do is put an add in the paper for a "free" pet. I even know a woman who will call the free adds daily to let "sellers" know the potential harm they are subjecting the animal too!
To many times I have heard of "free" animals being subject to dog fights, torture, & other horrible outcomes that could have potentially been avoided; if a fee had been tact on. If our rescue is full, we recomend owners to not only place a fee (that they can keep or donate) but to also use our adoption application & contract from the website; as it is a good way to get information that they may not think of during the meet & greet.
It's sad that we live in a world in which there is little trust but I have to say, that when it comes to rescue, seeing is deff believing!
OMG pope yes its the same show- all day at work today its stuck with me and is haunting me- Yes the ditches with all of those dead dogs with tags and the man that was trying to yank the dog on the scales and he punched him in the face and the dog peed all over the scales- wanst that just the worset program ever? as in the worst thing ive ever seen and i know i will be thinking about it for years to come. I cant believe that guy went under cover i couldnt do the stuff he had to do, but he said he had to do it or they would of caught on and he did end up having that kennel shut down but the images are burned into my memory The poor dog that he thought was dead with all the dog bites and flesh chunks missing and he seen the dogs eye flutter, I understand now why rescues charge what they do. ppl were selling dogs for 20.00 each and they were ppls pets that were stolen most of them im sure with the tags and such on them- I cant believe tho that kennels can get away with this. Supposly that kennel was shut down but they said there are many many more like it that are still operating. why doesnt the goverment shut them down??? Why would some kennel have over 600 dogs ? Do all of these kennels sell dogs for reserch? is this the main reason they have them? ( buy them) what kind of companys buy them? THe ppl that buy them are sick to and that guy that ran the kennel should of been taking out back and shot in the head like he did so many of those poor dogs
That was a pretty german shepard wasnt it? I was happy that women got the dog, by telling the kennel guy that the dog woundered into the girls yard and it wasnt bred by them.' I guess they are suppose to ask if they bred these dogs but of coarse they dont care either way/
So that show i watched was a few years old? Boy its hard to get out of your head isnt it? I couldnt stomach alot of it and turned my head, I was crying my eyes out when they had some of the dogs they rescued from that kennel and took them to that pet place and all those helpers each took a dog and they gave them a bath and gave them their shots and it was very heart warming, Im happy it said that they all found homes.
Dog Kennels are very bad here in Pennsylvania the ones that go unknown are the in home kennels. Where they have gotten a kennel license and can hide all their pups. I just recently bred my little toy poodle that is 8 pounds and the male being 5 pounds. The last time my girl was bred was back in 2003 but some like to call me a bad person because I have 3 dogs and have bred my girl. When this woman has puppies all the time seems she don't care much about her adults or her puppies to be breeding every heat.
Oh, I could never even sleep if I saw that again or even try reading or watching that on tv. I think, its mean and cruel. I rather just put my dogs in a room and just let them have bigger space to move around and instead of feeling like ''I can't move''. I just hate the fact that whoever made cages, they shouldn't make anothero ne. For planes if your tarveling are ok, but not just for being bad. As long as, its a big area. It would be fine, so the dogs can move around, like in a bedroom. But, by the way, my dogs would never ever go in a cage or kennel, only if traveling on a plane. That's the only time for me. Otherwise, put them in a room and let one of friends feed them and stuff like that. Have a great day, take care!
