By Sloane Quealy-Miner

URGENT CALL TO ACTION! PLEASE HELP SAVE Chiquita,   CLICK HERE

C1On 1-20-15 I was called to help this dog, she had been abandoned on Rockaway Beach and some guys were trying to make their dogs attack her and they were throwing rocks at her.

A good Samaritan took her back to his apartment but they didn’t even have money to buy a little food for her to eat. She is chained to the radiator to keep her from running around the apartment. She is so sweet and even good with their 1 year old kid as well as their other young children.

 

1-22-15 We have a place for her to go but I need to get her fully vetted. Turns out Chiquita is a senior doggie and has multiple mammory gland tumors that need to be removed and biopsied. In additiona to this and the regular vetting she also needs major dentistry.

I am desperate to raise the money,  Anyone who wants to help precious Chiquita can CLICK HERE to donate.

Please share far and wide, thank you!

TEXAS – Eight Decaying Dead Pit Bulls Partially Burned And Covered In Scars – CALL TO ACTION!

By Sloane Quealy-Miner

Deadly Trio  Amber, John, Caleb

Deadly Trio Amber, John, Caleb

UPSHUR COUNTY, TX – Amber Jean Long, John Newman and Caleb Vigneau have all been arrested in Upshur County, Texas for dumping 8 dead dogs believed to have been “fighting dogs” in Glade Creek off Poplar Road, between Gladewater and Gilmer. The partially decaying bodies of the 8 pit bulls were discovered by horrified neighbors. Their lifeless, floating bodies were partially burned and covered with scars, some in trash bags. A microchip in one of the dogs led police to the deadly trio.

Heartbroken neighbor, Brandon, waded into the creek to remove the bodies. “Somebody had to do it. Nobody else was doing anything to get them out. I got a pair of waders, I’ll go out and do it,” he said. “It really kind of touches you to see that many dogs dead, and, you know, it’s some kind of abuse, fighting them or something,” said resident Brandon Eitel. “Every time he would bring one up and pull it up with the tractor; it’s very sad,” Erica said. “It makes you wonder about your neighbors.”

Comments left about the deadly trio online just convinces me more that they are responsible for far more than these 8 heinous acts of cruelty. One person had this to say The lady and the man on the far right worked for a VET the lady has been rescuing dogs for years selling them using the some for bait dogsAmber Long has been a dog hoarder for years would shoot them when they got sick.. these people need serious charges brought against them not a slap on the wrist see how Caleb is smiling he knows this nothing”

Another commenter had this to say “I have been following them on a facebook dog transport page. The woman has quite a lengthy history under various names.
Some of my friends have had dealings with her. I missed the experience, fortunately.”

In 2012 Amber Long’s former residence, that is John Newman’s listed above, was investigated for animal cruelty. Neighbors had complained countless times, unfortunately their calls went unanswered until three horses were killed by multiple dogs on the property that housed horses, chickens, dogs and donkeys. One neighbor said this “They are malnourished and there are just too many dogs on that property. They also don’t have adequate shelter,” she said. “And there is trash everywhere … I’ve just never seen anything like this.” “She tries to say she’s saving the animals, but she isn’t; those animals are starving to death.”

CALL TO ACTION: Clearly the deadly trio is guilty of much more than they have been charged with. They must be stopped from abusing anymore animals and punished for the ones they have. Speak up, Speak out for the animals! Demand action by local officials.

URGENT! HELP NEEDED TO FREE Innocent Dogs Seized Under Salina, Kansas BSL

By Sloane Quealy-Miner

STOP CHRIS GETTY AND SALINA, KS FROM MURDERING THESE DOGS

STOP CHRIS GETTY AND SALINA, KS FROM MURDERING THESE DOGS

CALL TO ACTION
The only hope for Celeste, Maicee & Remi to be saved lies with you. Money must be raised to fight for their lives. Please donate HERE

On October 23, 2014 Jo Ann Morgan’s two dogs named Celeste and Maicee escaped their family’s yard after the gate was left open after a trash pick-up. It was not noticed the gate was left open until the next morning, when the dogs were let out as the family got ready for their day.

A few minutes after they got out Morgan discovered the yard was empty and immediately began looking for the dogs. Unfortunately the dogs were picked up by animal control in a nearby parking lot and taken to the city shelter. When Morgan contacted the shelter she was told the dogs would not be released due to their perceived breed and the current breed specific laws in Salina, Kansas.

Morgan was then told that she would be charged with harboring dangerous dogs. However, Morgan reports that she was also informed that if she signed over the rights of her dogs to the shelter, the prosecutor would drop the charges for harboring dangerous dogs. She refused to sign over the dogs after being told they would be killed.

Celeste and Maicee are currently being held as evidence and there are multiple criminal charges pending against Morgan. These dogs have harmed no one and have done nothing wrong.

Morgan’s chances of ever having her dogs back in her home are slim to none. Even if DNA tests proved the dogs are not “pit bulls” few, if any, confiscated dogs make it out of the shelter alive. Just look at the case of Lucey in 2009. The city of Salina, KS, with the help of veterinarian Dr. Atherton attempted to kill her for being a pit bull. Her owner fought back and proved through DNA Lucey was not a pit bull. Shockingly, officials came back to the family claiming that DNA tests were not reliable after the vet responsible for breed identification, Dr. Atherton, got a DNA test on his own dog and didn’t like the results. Dr. Atherton is notorious for bad identification practices, and has, in at least one case, identified a pure breed dog (not a banned breed) as banned because of the dog’s teeth structure.

saline3A third dog, a Catahoula dog also faces death at the hands of the Salina, KS shelter. This dog has UKC registered parents with documentation. The city is trying to claim that the Catahoula is also part pit bull based only on the fact that the dog has what’s called a scissor bite (When the inner side of the upper incisors meet the outer side of the lower incisors during a bite). Cats and even Chihuahuas also have scissor bites so someone please explain to me how this is even allowed as a justifiable reason for holding this dog.

All three dogs have rescues, fosters, professionals located outside the city willing to take the dogs. Even by the city’s own laws the Catahoula should never have been seized as the dog, along with his guardian were visiting and do not even live there. The city ordinance allows pit bulls to visit within city limits for up to 48 hours. This dog should be returned the owner.

pitbulllIt is clear to me that Chris Getty and the Salina, KS city officials are set on killing Remi, Celeste and Maicee. It is of no matter to them that the dogs they have seized have done nothing wrong, or even that one of them (Remi) is already proven not to be a pit bull.Through their actions the officials have proven themselves to be morally bankrupt, hateful individuals with no ethics.

THEY MUST BE STOPPED! In order for this to happen money must be raised. Please donate HERE

Stories about pit bull attacks are tragic, but isolated incidents. Those stories are blasted all over the news, but it’s stories like the ones linked HERE below that people never hear about. These are the stories of pit bull heroes – the dogs who selflessly defend their families from heinous crimes, save other animals from certain death, and pull their human guardians to safety in times of danger. Stories about pit bull bravery and heroism are by themselves powerful arguments against breed specific legislation.

Caurie Swinger & Ashley Bryant Indicted! One Of New Jersey’s Largest Dog Fighting Rings Busted – CALL TO ACTION

By Sloane Quealy-Miner

Caurie Swinger and his girlfriend Ashley Bryant

Paterson, New Jersey - Caurie Swinger, 21, and his girlfriend Ashley Bryant, 32, were indicted for running one of the state’s largest dog-fighting rings out of Swinger’s home located at 226 Van Blarcom Street, Paterson, NJ 07524. The deadly duo were indicted on nearly two dozen counts of animal cruelty as well as drug and weapons charges following a drug raid in April 18, 2014. Property records show the home is owned by Caurie’s mother Constance Swinger.

Authorities discovered 21 horrifically abused pit bull dogs, in various states of injury, heartlessly crammed into cages. Many of the dogs were extremely malnourished, some couldn’t even walk. Four dead, badly scarred dogs were also found shoved into plastic bags like garbage. Paterson’s Animal Control Officer John DeCando said the dog-fighting occurred in an upstairs bedroom where the walls were splattered with blood. Police found steroids, needles, electronic shock collars, break sticks and sewing kits used for stitching the animals’ wounds. One dog rescued from this house of horrors named Karma had chemical burns on her head and her face was peeling away from bite wounds.

One heartless neighbor admittedly said you could hear the dogs in the backyard that were chained to trash cans cry at night. Other neighbors spoke of large groups of people that would gather at the house. They all used the tired excuse that they were too scared to do anything.

Typically Caurie Swinger and Ashley Bryant have pled not guilty to animal cruelty charges and they are roaming free on bail. The attorneys (Peter Festa, Kenyatta Stewart) for the killer couple are challenging whether police used a reliable informant and correctly followed their search warrant guidelines before Judge Bruno Mongiardo. If they are successful the judge could block all or part of the evidence gathered during the search warrant.

Sadly, if convicted, the pair will face harsher penalties for the weapons (maximum sentence of 10 years) charges than for the horrific torture and abuse of the innocent dogs (18 months to five years for all remaining charges). On December 12th killer Caurie Swinger, an Ashley Bryant’s lawyers will argue their briefs ont his matter in front of Judge Bruno Mongiardo.

Lamar Moore Charged! One Pitbull Found Dead, Severe Neglect Of Another – CALL TO ACTION

By Sloane Quealy-Miner

935 East 28th Street, Patterson, NJ 07513

935 East 28th Street, Patterson, NJ 07513

Another heartbreaking discovery in Paterson, NJ for Animal Control Officer John DeCando last week when he arrived at 935 East 28th Street, Paterson, NJ 07513Lamar Moore was charged with five counts of animal cruelty in the fourth degree, and one count of indictable third degree animal cruelty, for the neglect and death of one of his two dogs. He was also fined for not having them licensed.

Authorities were alerted to the dogs by a neighbor. Upon arrival at the residence they followed the pathway alongside the dilapidated house which brought them to the kennel. Inside the kennel they saw an emaciated male pit bull, soaked with rainwater, shivering on the mud. The dog could barely walk, but he mustered the energy to greet Paterson authorities with a ball in his mouth, ready to fetch. Just feet away, near a dirty plastic igloo, a female pit bull was lying motionless in the fetal position. There was little left of her, just skin and bones.”

935 East 28th Street, Patterson, NJ 07513

The male dog, now named Dino, and who is being cared for by Second Chance Pet Adoption had sores on his feet and has difficulty walking. Dino is said to be enjoying his new stuffed toys and the company of other dogs who he has been able to meet. The rescue organization is hoping to find a foster home to take him in.
If the case wasn’t devastating enough, Lamar Moore will only face the possibility of a short time in jail and/or a fine.  There is rarely ever real justice for the animals.

What is wrong with the neighbors and the family and friends of the “owners” of these two innocent dogs that they didn’t report this cruelty earlier? People knew these dogs were there, they heard them barking, and they didn’t do anything. If the neighbor who ultimately reported it was so concerned they should have gotten involved earlier. Better yet why didn’t they hop the fence and rescue the dogs themselves? I am so sick of people doing nothing when they see animal abuse or neglect. According to Officer DeCando, Moore’s father called Animal Control asking if a deal could be worked out. “There’s nothing to work out,” he said. “It’s a very cruel act allowing an animal to die. There’s no reason for it.” We need to demand stronger laws and stronger sentences that will send a message to the public that heinouse acts of cruelty like these will not be tolerated.

CALL TO ACTION:
Contact PASSAIC COUNTY PROSECUTOR Camelia Valdes and demand Lamar Moore be held accountable for torturing his two innocent dogs.
EMAIL: cvaldes@passaiccountynj.org  Telephone Number: 973-881-4800

If you have any additional information regarding this horrifying case you can also call Paterson Animal Control at 973-881-3640.

Tulsa Oklahoma Police, Stop Shooting Our Dogs! 2 Pit Bulls Shot In One Day, URGENT CALL TO ACTION!

By Sloane Quealy-Miner

Ruby

Ruby

On September 11, 2014 the streets of Tulsa, Oklahoma ran red with the blood of two innocent pit bulls thanks to two trigger happy Tulsa Police Officers named  Adam Lovell and Roy Owens Jr.

Officer Roy Owens Jr., Badge 01591, shot Lana Ellsbury’s pit bull Ruby three times in her own yard while answering an alarm call at their next door neighbor’s property. The officer was in the Ellsbury’s yard while Ruby was being let out. In a matter of seconds Ruby’s owner’s mom Janet Ellsbury heard shots. When she ran out of the house she saw Officer Owens standing there. Shockingly, Officer Owens didn’t have anything to say after firing three shots into pit bull Ruby, except to tell Janet that she ran away. After the shooting he simply walked back to his patrol car and drove off.

Immediately the family began to search for Ruby who was ultimately found ten miles away. She had been shot three times. She was shot once in the shoulder, once in the hip and once in the face resulting in a portion of her jaw being shattered. Ruby has undergone surgery and currently in excruciating pain and while she will recover she has suffered immensely.

Ruby and her family

Ruby and her family

When Lana Ellsbury (Ruby’s owner) called the police department demanding to know why Officer Roy Owens Jr. shot her dog and just left, the police made the statement that the officer was in fear for his life, and was justified in his shooting. If Officer Owens was in such fear for his life then why did he let the dog, that he was so afraid, run off without trying to locate her? If we are expected to believe he viewed her as a public threat and dangerous, then Officer Owens had the obligation to keep the public safe and locate her immediately.

Lana told me that when she asked for the official police report they refused to give it to her. Since then she has filed for a copy under the Freedom of Information Act but has not received it yet.

A few hours later off-duty Officer Adam Lovell shot and killed friendly pit bull Titus with his own personal firearm. As Titus lay in the grass, crying and writhing in pain Officer Adam Lovell bent down, aimed, and shot Titus it in the head while neighbors watched in shock. Please read the full story HERE

We cannot continue to allow cops to injure and kill innocent animals and put the lives of innocent people in danger. We must speak up regarding this clear abuse of power by police officers like Roy Ownes Jr. and Adam Lovell who are supposed to serve and protect, not terrorize and needlessly kill the innocent!

URGENT CALL TO ACTION! Contact the below officials and demand that all officers be given proper training when it comes to handling animals they encounter safely and without the use of guns and or deadly force. Demand that proper investigations be conducted into these shootings and actions taken against both these officers.

Killer Cop Adam Lovell (Tulsa, OK Police Department) Executes Friendly and Loving Pit Bull Titus- URGENT CALL TO ACTION!

By Sloane Quealy-Miner

Loving Titus

Loving Titus

Killer cop Adam Lovell from Tulsa, Oklahoma Police Department murdered an innocent and loving pit bull names Titus on September 11th, 2014. Titus escaped the familys’ yard through a broken fence board that they thought was fixed almost immediately after being let into their yard. Within just a few minutes shots were fired, and Titus, their beloved dog lay dead, bleeding outside their house. Shot by off-duty officer Lovell with his personal firearm.

A neighbor, who witnessed the horrifying killing, along with his wife, grandchild, and another neighbor has come forward and spoken out against Officer Adam Lovell.  Holm said he saw Titus run from between two houses on the other side of the street toward him with his tail wagging but then changed direction toward the officer when he saw two other dogs. The officer was walking with a large dog on a leash and was with a woman who had a small dog on a leash, Holm said.

Titus went to the large dog and appeared to be greeting the other animal from a submissive posture with its head down, Holm said. The officer then pulled on his dog’s leash, rearing the animal up onto its hind legs. “The man (officer), as smooth as you please, reached behind him, pointed (a handgun), put it up to the dog and shot it in the head or neck area, and Titus immediately went down,” Holm said that the officer didn’t say a word before pulling the trigger.

As Titus lay in the grass, crying and writhing in pain, “he (the officer) bent down, aimed at it and shot it in the head with everybody in shock,” Holm said, adding that the second and final shot sent adults scurrying to collect children and take them inside their homes. Holm said he also doesn’t know why the officer needed to walk over and shoot Titus a second time when the animal already was lying on the ground severely wounded. “I might have seen it differently if they were fighting, but there was no fighting,” Holm said, also saying there was no barking or growling.

$75 ticket

$75 ticket

Another witness had this to say “He (officer) reached for his pistol, leanedover, and shot Titus point blank in his neck. And then as he falls to the ground, flipping around, he leaned down and shot him again in the head, kicked him to see if he was dead, he wasn’t, so then he shot him again in the side.” This witness went on to say that another officer who responded told her that if it had been a private citizen who had opened fire on her dog, he would have probably made an arrest. To add insult to injury owner Nicholaz Blazek was given a $75.00 ticket for having Titus running loose

It is clear to me that many officers like Adam Lovell, believe they have a free pass to kill when it comes to pit bulls. These morally bankrupt cops repeatedly used the tired defense that they felt “threatened” or that the dog was “aggressive” when in countless cases, like this one, the witnesses have reported otherwise.

We cannot continue to allow cops to kill innocent animals and put the lives of innocent people in danger. We must speak up regarding this clear abuse of power by police officers like Adam Lovell who are supposed to serve and protect, not terrorize and needlessly kill the innocent!

URGENT CALL TO ACTION! Contact the below officials and demand that a propoer investigation be made into this shooting. That Officer Adam Lovell be held responsible for his actions. He has only been on the force since December of 2012. The Police have not released the official police report surrounding this murder and seem to be protecting Officer Lovell. You can request this thorugh the freedom of information act.
