This is a crossposted message from the American Bulldog message boards. A Las Vegas AB rescue is taking in possibly 20 or more of these dogs, and needs some extra help in covering the expenses. Here is the post with info on the case.....
********************************************** Last week the Houston SPCA raided Pickets Pride an American Bulldog puppy-mill and seized over 70 dogs due to SEVER neglect. Out of the 70 dogs, only 20-30 can be saved and they are gonna need a LOT of rehabilitation.
Las Vegas Wrinkle Rescue is getting 5-10 of these dogs but we're gonna need help.
We are trying desperately to set up transport from TX to Vegas at this time but we need to set things up here so we can properly care for them.
We are asking for whatever help we can, be it transport, food, dogs houses, kennels, chain link runs, volunteering time to socialize them once their here, helping set things up, or a few dollars to help up buy the materials to set up the kennels and pay for their on-going Vet care. ANYTHING & EVERYTHING will help!
If you can please Donate ANYTHING it is greatly appreciated!!
If anyone can give a hand and help give these dogs a chance, it would be greatly appreciated. This has been such a sad situation..... there are even pics of one of the dogs, a CH at one time, who sadly did not make it.....I can't even express how I feel about it...just a terrible thing these dogs have gone through....
bullymom, i am not even going to open the links. I can already imagine the suffering that those dogs endured. I know if i see it , i will be a basket case for a long time afterwards. It just breaks my heart how anyone can cause so much pain and suffering to those precious babies, that have no other goal in life , but to love us.
If you are a dog and your owner suggests that you wear a sweater, suggest that he wear a tail.
I wanted to give everyone an update as well as give Thank You's to anyone who may have helped. The situation is a tradgedy and I'm just happy that a few of the dogs will be able to come out on the good end of life!
As of this time, there will be 22 dogs coming to Las Vegas Wrinkle rescue. Transport has been arranged and fosters have been lined up. At this point, there is still an obvious financial need, and any food, supplies, etc that anyone can help with will be greatly appreciated. I sent an oreder of stainless steel dishes, adjustable nylon collars and a few bags of dog food, and know many folks in the AB commuminity have come together in support.
BullyMom, I did watch the video, and it broke my heart. The conditions those dogs were kept in were inexcusable. The last dog to come out, could'nt walk, had to be carried. Even though he was so weak, his tail was wagging, poor baby. I will be contributing to these animals, and I'm seriously thinking of adopting one. I read the feeble B>S story the owner gave, about a bacterial infection running rampant through the dogs. I wonder if that explains the ribs clearly showing on the dogs, and the disgusting pool of chololate brown water, in one dog's pen. I hope this woman goes to jail.
