Pit Bull Puppy Dead In Backyard, Snow Settled On His Body, Animal Control Didn’t See Him – CALL TO ACTION

By Sloane Quealy-Miner

Whiteside Animal Control

Whiteside Animal Control

Rock Falls, Illinois – Heartbreak over the needless death of yet another innocent pit bull whose name we don’t even know. This one year old baby boy, who I am now calling Pittie Doe, was found dead in a backyard, curled up in a cage on a small blanket with empty bowls. Snow had settled on his lifeless body.

The dog’s neglected body was found on March 24th by a worker hired to clean the property after the former tenants, owners of this dog moved more than a week ago.

Shockingly The Whiteside County Animal Control had been to the property looking for the dog after they received a call from the owner’s estranged wife who told authorities the dog was being neglected in the basement of the home. When The Whiteside County Animal Control Officers went to investigate, no one was home; they left a note.

The actions of the Animal Control Officers are inexcusable! Why wasn’t the outside property thoroughly searched? Why did they not look through windows in order to establish the house was vacant? If they had done this they could have then called police and or the owner of the property to gain access to the inside of the house immediately. Why can’t they do their job?

Pitty Doe never knew the touch of a gentle, loving hand. He was failed not only by his owners, but the neighbors who didn’t intervene, and finally by the animal control officers who turned their backs and walked away. Pittie Doe might have had a second chance if the responding Animal Control Officers had done their job. Their negligent actions could be responsible for the death of this precious baby boy and they should be called out for it.

STAND UP, SPEAK OUT!
IF NOT YOU WHO, IF NOT NOW, WHEN?

Man Savagely Tries To Kill Pit Bull With Sledgehammer – CALL TO ACTION

By Sloane Quealy-Miner

NeroWashington State animal abuser Chad Scott Miller gets only 14 days in jail for attempting to kill his pit bull by savagely beating him over the head with a sledgehammer. This incredibly sorry excuse for a human being claims that his dog Nero bit him after he hit the dog for eating a box of doughnuts. He then tries to convince the court that he was looking out for the safety of others by attempting to horrifically kill this innocent dog. “If I gave him to somebody, and then he got bit, it was my fault. I didn’t know what to do.” I can only imagine what other horrors this poor dog had to endure at the hands of Chad Scott Miller.

While Judge Gary Bashor has prohibited this abuser from owning pets for two years and fined him $5000 I am deeply troubled by remarks he made when handing out sentencing. In making his ruling, Judge Bashor noted the case was “difficult” because Miller was trying to euthanize, not torture, the dog. “Had he been successful, we wouldn’t even be here today,” Bashor said. I don’t see anything difficult about it. Nor do I see any cause to show mercy towards Chad Scott Miller. I personally find Judge Bashor’s statements extremely offensive.

Animal abuser Miller never would have had charges filed against him if it weren’t for the determination of Mike Nicholson and his team from The Humane Society in Longview, WA. This heinous act of cruelty happened in October of 2012. Fortunately they were able to build a case before the three year statute of limitations had run out. Luckily Nero escaped the brutal attack and is doing well. He is awaiting an adopter at The Humane Society. Nero was in foster care for months recovering from the skull fractures and now is at the shelter where he enjoys the company of other dogs as well as the staff.

Puppy Killer Michael Vick Signed To New York Jets – CALL TO ACTION!

By:Sloane Quealy-Miner

CALL TO ACTION: 
Michael Vick has been signed to The New York Jets today, March 21, 2014.

EMAIL JETS HERE
Comment on Jets Facebook Page HERE

SIGN PETITION HERE

MAIL:
COACH REX RYAN, NEW YORK JETS:
Atlantic Health Jets Training Center
One Jets Drive
Florham Park, NJ 07932

The Jets play their home games at the MetLife Stadium
MetLife Stadium
One MetLife Stadium Drive
East Rutherford, NJ 07073

To Whom It May Concern,

Either you forgot or you just don’t care that Michael Vick murdered countless innocent dogs. Maybe you feel that dogs don’t count. I, along with many other animal rights activists and advocates are here to tell you that they do. If the Jets wouldn’t welcome a serial killer on their team whose victims were human, then you shouldn’t entertain having one whose victims were animals.

Michael Vick fought dogs for sport, and when his players (dogs) didn’t win him money he hung, drowned, electrocuted or shot them. He tied innocent dogs to rape stands for the brutal practice of mating. Not to mention the beatings and the syringes full of drugs forcibly injected into the dogs. It was hell on earth for the dogs at Bad Newz Kennels who had no say in their actions.

Even though some of the dogs made it out alive, many of those dogs continue to suffer to this day. Yes, Michael Vick spent time behind bars. But his minute prison stint is a joke in comparison to his heinous crimes. He should not continue to be celebrated, idolized and rewarded for his bad behavior by making millions in blood money.

Shame on you for contributing to Sick Vick’s success.

URGENT CALL TO ACTION! Help Save Abused Pit Bull Lea’s Eye

By Sloane Quealy-Miner, EMAIL: BSLNEWS2011@gmail.com

Lea's eye stitched up

Lea’s eye stitched up

The Far Rockaway Rescue Project was able to rescue Lea from a horrifying life of cruelty and abuse. Now, your help is needed to save her eye. Lea was turned out into the streets from one of the dangerous housing projects here in Far Rockaway. She was thrown out like trash with a multitude of fresh cuts as well as bites, including one very serious one in her eye.

When we first met Lea she could not open her eye at all and she was in pain. When Christine opened it to see what was going on and clean it her eyeball was rolled back in her head and it was a cloudy color.

We brought her to our vet and within minutes of her arrival the doctors looking at her eye put her under sedation to see what was going on. They initially cleaned out the eye and did a scraping.  Two days later Lea underwent surgery and they stitched her eye closed with a “third eyelid” temporary implant and spacer (seen here) to help her eye heal. She has been to the vet every few days since then and needs a fianl surgery this week to complete the process of saving her eye.

PLEASE consider making a contribution to save Lea’s eye.With so many to care for lately we really need your help. Thank you!
USE PAYPAL LINK: HELP SAVE LEA’S EYE We NEED to RAISE $700.  If you would like to call the vet directly to make a contribution please call Animal Hospital of Rockaways 718-474-0500. Please tell them you wish to contribute to Lea’s upcoming surgery under Sloane Quealy-Miner

Pit Bulls Abandoned On Rockaway Beach Boardwalk- CALL TO ACTION

By Sloane Quealy-Miner
Please HELP Ashley & Billy by contributing to their ongoing vet care costs.  You can do so securely HERE by clicking this link or you can contact the vet directly. Animal Hospital of The Rockaways, (718) 474-0500. Both Billy and Ashley are under my name Sloane Quealy-Miner. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

For more information on either dog email  BSLNEWS2011@gmail.com

B1Exactly one week apart, in the exact same spot on the evenings of Thursday, September 12th and Thursday September 19th two pittie mixes were tied up and abandoned on the Rockaway Beach Boardwalk at 81st Street.

Ashley, the first pittie that was abandoned was not found until early Friday, September 13th. By the time myself and Matt had arrived to help her the police had already picked her up. Thanks to Red Hook Dog Rescue ,who we are working with to help Ashley and place her in a loving home, she was quickly located at Brooklyn ACC.

B1Red Hook Dog Rescue immediately pulled this precious throw away mom and Matt and I were able to pick her up. Ashley is currently at our vet’s office where she has received all her shots, medicine for demodectic mange (non contagious), and plenty of love. We will also have her spayed soon of course. Ashley is just two years old, and it is evident that she has been used for breeding her entire little life. Yet despite how she has been treated in the past she has nothing but love for everyone she meets. Her favorite past times include rolling in the grass, running and jumping around in the park and giving kisses. Ashley picks up on commands very quickly and seems to enjoy learning new things. She is good with doggies and seems to be good with cats so far too.

B1The second pittie/shepherd mix that was abandoned on the boardwalk we named Billy. We are working together with Second Chance Rescue to help and place this incredibly handsome boy in a loving home. Billy is also currently at our vet’s office where he has received all his shots, as well as plenty of love.

B2At just 1 1/2 years old Billy is still very puppy like. He has a lot of energy and enjoys running around the park. He is a happy go lucky little boy and any family would be lucky to have him. Billy particularly loves head rubs and like Ashley, has nothing but love for everyone he meets. Billy is also good with doggies.

PLEASE take the time to SHARE THESE BABIES STORIES SO THEY CAN FIND THEIR FOREVER HUMANS, Thank you so much :)

URGENT Treatment Needed To Save Sweet Silvia, Another Far Rockaway Pittie

Please HELP me?

Please HELP me?

We DESPERATELY want to SAVE Silvia but WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Meet Silvia, 5 years old and used her entire life for breeding. This poor baby is bow legged from being pregnant so many times and carrying all that extra weight around over and over again.  In fact she is still lactating from her most recent pregnancy. Finally, this past Monday, June 24th she was rescued by Christine Drakatos, who leads The Far Rockaway Rescue Project.

It became apparent to Christine after she brought Silvia home and spent time with her that there was something serious going on health wise. Silvia is extremely lethargic and you can tell that she just doesn’t feel well. In fact Silvia wants to play and starts but then gets tired.

Silvia went to the vet yesterday and she has been diagnosed with lyme disease, anaplasmosis and heartworm. These treatments are extremely expensive and having already spent hundreds of dollars on blood tests, general exam and shots we don’t have much left. CALL TO ACTION: Please consider contributing to Silvia’s vet care costs  securely HERE by clicking this link

Silvia3

Thank you so much!
