Some states don’t recognize the rights of pet owners to create trusts—and there’s no federal law that protects pets after their owners pass away, either. Just think what can happen! Sign the pledge to support stronger laws to protect pets today!

A 26-year-old domestic cat from Shropshire could be one of the oldest in the UK. Pussywillow lives in Ratlinghope and is still "sharp in her mind and her eyes." The black cat, who enjoys curling up by the stove, caught her own food until she was 22. ~ BBC

ORANGE CA--Persian to die Friday 1/11--Needs immediate assistance--12 y/o, depressed January 09, 2008 8:25 PM

This old girl came in filthy and matted to the skin. She is very depressed. We ran a blood panel on her and her BUN = 50, but nothing else is significant in value to suggest why she looks so bad. She will probably need more medical workup and her prognosis is poor, but we feel bad for her and one of our staff members is particularly fond of her. We shaved her partially down, but she got too stressed out and we had to stop. I can only hold her until Friday at 5 pm due to her poor condition. If her condition declines, she could be euthanized sooner.

Please contact us ASAP if you can take her.

ORANGE CA--12 y/o distressed Persian crossed the Rainbow Bridge January 11, 2008 6:19 PM


Rainbow Bridge


TO: Care2 Friends
FROM: Venita McMorris
Helping Persian Cats,
a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization


I am sorry to give the very sad news that the 12-year-old, senior Persian died Thursday morning, at the Orange County Animal Services clinic. I talked to Ryan Drabek, at the OC shelter.

Here is what Ryan told me: The Persian was in very bad condition on intake. She was being cared for at the vet clinic at OC Animal Services, and her care was overseen by 3 vets there. She was put on fluids, was being treated, but was in kidney failure. (As noted in Tammy Osborn's earlier email blast, a blood panel showed that the Persian's BUN was 50 - whereas the normal range is approx. 17-33.)

Thursday morning, the Persian was moribund, and was irremediably suffering. Her pupils were dilated, she could not hold her head up, and she was not responsive to treatment. She was euthanized to end her suffering.

Like all of you, I am mourning the loss, and the very sad end of her life. Ryan told me that, including our group, over 12 different rescuers had called him by this morning. He and the shelter are very appreciative of the inquiries and the desire to help. Everyone at the OC shelter is very upset that this cat came in, in the horrible condition she was in. If they could pursue the owner, they certainly would. However, she came in as a stray, and did not have a microchip, so the owner apparently cannot be traced.

PLEASE, Please use the letter on this page to email both your representative and committee members.

I request with heart-felt plea's to please go to this site and send the letter to help STOP BSL in MINNESOTA???

We live here, we are definately animal lovers, and we own pit bulls... None of my animals have ever been in trouble, nor have they ever bitten anyone! Banning Specific Breeds is FRICKIN STUPID! It never solves anything, it can only add to the problems.

Blame the owner's, the people who raise & train their dog(s) ... but do NOT BLAME THE DOG nor the BREED...

as with humans... puppies are born innocent and only become a product of their environment, unless or until that environment changes for the better... "VICTORY DOGS" (Vicks rehabilitated pit bulls) are proof of that...

Please help?? I don't want to lose my companions

The makeshift shelter in Clarion County that is housing nearly 300 sick cats taken from Tiger Ranch in Frazer was vandalized Monday morning.

According to Howard Nelson, chief executive officer of the Pennsylvania branch of the Society for the Protection of Cruelty to Animals, a brick was thrown through the shelter window in Shippenville. “Fortunately, no person or animal was harmed,” he said. “Terroristic acts by a group of misinformed zealots will not deter the PSPCA’s mission to help these cats.”

The surviving 278 cats continue to receive extensive veterinary care. Currently, 75 cats are in critical condition.

PHILADELPHIA PA ~ TIGER RANCH Update ~ Lin Marie Facing Over 500 Cruelty Charges ~ Stricken Animals Lose Eyes ~ Surviving Cats Continue to Heal

Linda Bruno (aka Lin Marie), owner of the Tiger Ranch Cat Sanctuary, has been charged with 574 counts of cruelty to animals; 203 misdemeanors and 371 summaries. Bruno had previously been charged with 13 counts of animal cruelty after the Pennsylvania SPCA (PSPCA) removed more than 400 cats, seven horses, a goat, nine chickens and seven dogs from Tiger Ranch on March 13. On April 3, District Judge Suzanne Blaschak dismissed those charges on a technicality.

"We believe the evidence supports the fact that a crime was committed," said Mike Manko, a spokesman for the DA's office.

“We are pleased that district attorney is continuing to pursue the case against Lin Marie and has refiled the cruelty charges against her,” said PSPCA CEO Howard Nelson. “We are confident that Lin Marie will be convicted of the atrocities she committed by not providing sufficient medical care and treatment for the animals left to her care at Tiger Ranch.”

Blood and tissue samples from 380 cats that were taken to the Clarion hospital tested positive for parasites and viruses including: ESCHERICHIA COLI, STAPHYLOCOCCUS, PROTEUS MIRABILUS, FELINE CALICIVIRUS, HERPES VIRUS, BORDETELLA, MYCOPLASMA FELIS and CHLAMYDOPHILAFELIS. The cats’ symptoms included upper respiratory conditions, severe muscle wasting, abscesses, dehydration, malnutrition, purulent oral ulcers, eyes completely occluded with dried mucus and other conditions that required immediate medical intervention. “Some cats had oral ulcers that prevented them from eating and a discharge from the eyes that was left unchecked and resulted in loss of vision and then the eyes themselves,” said Murarka.

Once the PSPCA has this information, we will post it on our website immediately. Please continue to check back for more information.”
(Please excuse duplicate message(s).)



By Charlie Ban, FOR THE VALLEY NEWS DISPATCH
Tuesday, July 21, 2009

Fewer than half of the cats seized from the Tiger Ranch animal shelter survived their illnesses, but the survivors should be ready soon for adoption, according to the organization caring for them.

More than 240 cats from the Frazer no-kill shelter are living in a Clarion County facility while the Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals waits for their legal transfer.

Lin Marie, the owner of defunct animal sanctuary, pleaded guilty last week to 12 animal cruelty charges, which spared her almost 600 animal cruelty and other charges. Marie also was known as Linda Bruno.

During a March 2008 raid on the Tiger Ranch on Miller Drive, officials found 55 dead cats on the property, 12 others that had to be euthanized and hundreds of animal bones. They took more than 600 cats after the raid.

PSPCA spokeswoman Gail Luciani said the organization is waiting for paperwork to legally claim the cats before launching a Web site advertising the cats for adoption.

"We fully intend to find homes for these cats," she said. "We're hoping for the paperwork early this week."

Matt Collins, one of Marie's attorneys, said the paperwork in question was a forfeiture order from the district attorney. It won't involve any action by Marie.

"Rarely will a defendant 'help' with a forfeiture order," he said. "The PSPCA is basically waiting for a 'title transfer.'"

An SPCA spokesperson confirmed that cat owners who can prove they own a particular cat from Tiger Ranch may make their claims by Wednesday to get the cats. Proof of ownership would include a photo, veterinary bill or vaccination records.
