▪️ Charmed and Ulysses are the last two remaining from a larger group of under-socialized cats who came to the shelter originally in June. A home was being remodeled & they were accidentally closed in the walls. They could be heard & the worker took hours to break away at the wall & free them all. They were all not aggressive, but found to be very sick with panleukopenia from which they have fully recovered. At ACCT they’ve provided a variety of housing options, including low stress cage-less housing, Charmed and Ulysses have not made any progress demonstrating comfort interacting with humans. They do enjoy exploring their surroundings and lounging but are extremely stressed by human interaction, something which cannot be avoided in the shelter. They were found indoors and are unfortunately not candidates for return to field and previous attempts to locate working cat placements have not been fruitful. They would ideally be placed together, but it is not necessary if that is a barrier.

ASPCA Removes 29 Animals from Arkansas Property

Right now, the ASPCA is removing 29 dogs from a dilapidated property in Arkansas, upon the request of a local animal shelter and the Sheriff’s office.

The dogs’ owner was completely overwhelmed and admitted that the sheer number of animals was too much to handle. There was no electricity on the property, or adequate shelter to keep all the dogs safe and warm at night. Realizing that it had become a bad situation for the well-being of the animals, the pet owner, local animal shelter and local authorities collectively reached out for help.

These dogs will be transported to the ASPCA emergency shelter, where they will provide them with a warm bed, medical treatment, behavioral assessments and continued care.

If you would like to donate to help them finance their efforts, you can do so on their website: Donate to the ASPCA

Woman picks up injured bobcat, puts it in car next to her child

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – A woman in Colorado Springs picked up an injured bobcat and put it in her car on Thursday morning, according to KDVR.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife officials say the woman placed the mortally wounded wild cat in the backseat of her car – where her child was seated.

Wildlife officials removed the bobcat from the woman’s car. They say it was too injured to react to being picked up and placed in the car. Now CPW is issuing a stern warning, saying no one should ever pick up injured animals.

We removed the bobcat, which was mortally wounded. Luckily, it was too injured to react to being picked up and placed in a car. But no one should EVER try this. This could have been tragic. pic.twitter.com/x5aqqnGWIC

Dog Abandoned In Plastic Bin Near Highway In Falls: SPCA

FALLS TOWNSHIP, PA — The Bucks County SPCA is offering a reward for information about a dog found abandoned in poor condition in a plastic bin alongside a busy highway in Falls Township.

The dog — a small, terrier mix that SPCA staff have named Frodo — was found in the bin alongside Business Rt. 1 on Monday and taken to nearby Banfield Pet Hospital. According to SPCA officials, he was suffering from severe matting and had painful ear and eye infections.

Thankfully, staff say, he’s now being cared for and treated by the SPCA’s veterinary team. His heavily matted fur has been shaved and he’s receiving medication for his infections.

“Frodo has a long road ahead before he will be available for adoption by a family who will give him the love he deserves,” Bucks SPCA wrote on Facebook.

Abandonment of animals is a crime in Pennsylvania and the SPCA is encouraging anyone with information about Frodo to contact its cruelty investigation team at 215-794-7425 or reportcruelty@bcspca.org.

The group is offering a $2,000 reward for information.

MoMo: Owner Gave Alleged false surrender claim

Momo could die if not adopted soon. Upon surrendering Momo to the shelter the owner lied on the surrender form. Claiming Momo is aggressive and has two previous bite history.

Yet upon behavioral examination, Momo did not seem aggressive.

Momo

Hello, my name is Momo. My animal id is #70412. I am a desexed male white dog at the Brooklyn Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 1 years 6 months old.

I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 7/26/2019, with the surrender reason stated as animal behavior – aggressive towards people.

Behavior during intake: Momo had a soft and relaxed body during intake. He approached the counselor right away and began to lick the counselors hand and jump on the counselors lap. Counselor was able to scan for a microchip, collar and take a picture without any issues.

Date of Intake: 7/26/2019

Spay/Neuter Status: Neutered

Basic Information:: Momo is a 1 and a half year old neutered male that has no known current or previous medical concerns that the owner is aware of. Owner had Momo in the home since he was 2 months old but had to surrender due to Momo biting family members in the home

More information: https://newhope.shelterbuddy.com/Animal/Profile/Index/fe735719-ebbb-4b94-91ca-0bf9a0655f38

There are many people out there who lie on the intake form. Just so they don’t have to care for their companion anymore. Those that lie on the form need to realize that they are setting their companion up for the death penalty.

When surrendering an animal please be honest, with the receptionists. You will be surprised that more often than not people can be sympathetic to you. Knowing the difficulties of giving up a companion because of falling on hard times, forced to move and unable to care for due to failing health.

If you are in the New Hope area, and can adopt Momo, please help him out.

Goat found wandering in Durham to stay at Blind Spot Animal Sanctuary for time being

By Robbie Vaglio, WRAL.com

ROUGEMONT, N.C. — The Durham Sheriff’s Office held an auction Thursday for a goat found wandering Durham that was never claimed.

The goat, which was named Billy Geoffrey Clyde, was found in the area of East Eberlee Street and Dominion Street in Durham on July 17. He was being held at Blind Spot Animal Sanctuary in Rougemont, N.C. while he was waiting for someone to adopt him.

Blind Spot partners with the Durham Sheriff’s Office, offering boarding for farm animals picked up by the deputies since their office is not properly set up to house them, according to Alesja Daehnrich, co-founder and executive director of Blind Spot Animal Sanctuary.

Abandoned: 2 elderly horses found inside trailer in Windsor, left up to 24 hours with no food or water

WINDSOR, Calif. (KGO) — In the North Bay, a shocking case of animal cruelty after two elderly horses were found abandoned in a trailer for more than 24 hours with no food or water. Animal welfare officials are on the lookout for who left the animals behind in the hot summer sun.

Two mares, both in their 20’s are slowly recovering in an undisclosed veterinary facility with care and lots of tasty food to eat.

But on Tuesday, they were in bad shape.

Police found them abandoned in the corner of the Windsor Home Depot parking lot, inside a sweltering horse trailer with no food or water.

People who live there can’t believe it.

“I’m glad they got to them in time, it could have been a death sentence,” said Matt Birkhead.

Authorities say it’s possible the horses may have been left in the trailer for up to 24 hours.

“We have no idea why someone would show up in our county and dump a trailer with horses,” said Kevin Davis, Field Supervisor for Sonoma County Animal Services.

Davis is investigating the case. He says both horses were malnourished. One of them is a mustang and her markings say she’s a rescue from the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, which holds horse auctions after roundups.

Outlaw Cat Declawing: Petition

Petition By M. Robbins and Guardian Of Animals

Governor Wolf, House Legislature, Senate, State Representatives

Declawing of cats has been a part of managing the scratching behavior of objects in cats. However, this barbaric tradition to protect ”items” and other material possession has caused more harm than good. Declawing cats has left them physically and mentally scarred for life.

We sit here on the precipice of destroying our beloved companions just to protect a few pieces of furniture or walls. All of which can easily be replaced, repaired and or protected by other humane ways.

Declawing of cats should never be an option. Scratching objects and or trees is a natural instinct for cats. The Medical drawbacks to declawing include pain in the paw, infection, tissue necrosis (tissue death), lameness, and back pain. Removing claws changes the way a cat’s foot meets the ground and can cause pain similar to wearing an uncomfortable pair of shoes.

Those who declaw are basically torturing cats for a lifetime. Some cats, even big cats in zoos go through life never placing full weight on paws, some even developed a mental disorder. Leading them to constantly lick and or shake their paw uncontrollably.

Not to mention if cats should escape outside how would they ever defend themselves against other cats or wildlife? They wouldn’t and due to that inability to defend or climb a tree, they would most likely die.

Why declaw when There are many alternatives to declawing that doesn’t leave a hazardous effect. Such as having professional clip nails as they do for dogs. Nail caps that can be adjusted to their size. And then there is double-sided tape to protect walls and door frames. Bumpers to protect furniture and non-toxic apple bitter to deter them from scratching up surfaces.

There’s also an environmentally friendly cat tree. Made of hemp, cardboard, dead tree bark and sea rope. All of which is biodegradable and reusable.

Declawing should be nonexistent, it should be considered animal cruelty and punishable if done/practiced by any person.

We the undersigned request for the prohibiting of declawing cats.
