I love these happy stories

I recently watched something on the news how officer working in a humane society was abusing a dog and he was caught on tape
The prick is under house arrest and that is his punishment only
At least the dog is now in a good home but it breaks my heart how much cruelty there is to animals all around the world so thanks for sharing these happy ending stories Dee...I come here to remember that there are a lot of us out there fighting to help them

Thank you

Mystique,

I dont think they should let just anyone work with animals. There should be a serious background check... Maby even some strick federal laws against cruelty

I agree Dee but how can we change this I mean even at the shelter I help out at simple example...I work with the dogs, walk them, train them and help them trust humans again...the staff try I guess its just that sometimes I see them socializing when they could be checking the kennels to clean them for the dogs sake not just keep them clean during public hours.
I had to make a stink about it and I notice a change. I know they are busy but thats just a small example..I see lots of things I don't like and try to keep in mind I am there for the animals and try and detach.
And this is just minor stuff imagine what goes on in shelters where people aren't held accountable...

I just find it amazing how unconditionally they love us no matter what they have been through

Just venting
Thanks for listening
