Dear Sir,

I am writing to you with regard to a travesty about to occur in Northern Ireland and to beg you to please intervene and help save a life.

The life in question belongs to Lennox, a seven year old American Bulldog Labrador Cross who was living happily with his family inNorthern Ireland.  On May 19, 2010,  Lennox was seized by council officials as an alleged &ldquoit bull type” and taken to secluded kennels whilst his owner was issued a warrant of seizure with an incorrect address for another location. 

While incarcerated in undisclosed kennels, Lennox’s family has never been permitted to visit him. It is now beyond two years that his family has not had an opportunity to interact with Lennox. According to the animal behaviourists who have examined Lennox and the various pictures on public view, Lennox’s health has been very much impacted while in custody.  Lennox has lost a lot of his body fur much of it falling in clumps, Lennox has open soars throughout his body, he suffers from an injured neck, he has an unattended bleeding paw, and he is administered anti anxiety medication on a daily basis to help alleviate his stress.

In a desperate attempt to save Lennox, his owner Carolyn Barnes’s supporters have created petitions and videos resulting in worldwide support to bringLennoxhome.

Northern Ireland has yet to fully implement  the same dog legislation as in mainlandUK.  IfNorthern Ireland were to complete the same dog legislationLennox could now be at home with his family.  The USPCA stated that the law inNorthern Ireland could be changed simply and rather quickly by an order in Council.  As it is, Lennox was branded a &ldquoit bull type” by theBelfastCity Council despite a dog license issued yearly for five years by the same City Council who seized him. 

 It must be noted that Lennox never bit or attacked any human or any other animal in all the seven years of his life. There have been two independent comprehensive assessments conducted by professional Animal Behaviourists, – Ms. Sarah Fisher and Mr. David Ryan -  both arriving at separate conclusions confirming Lennox as a harmless, friendly dog posing no danger to humans.  For further reference, Ms. Fisher has made an excerpt of her Lennox examination available to public viewing.

It  must also be added that Lennox’s owners were always thoroughly responsible in their care of Lennox. Since a puppy they had him neutered, licensed, insured, DNA registered, Pet Safe registered and micro chipped. Lennoxnever had a complaint issued against him while living with his family nor was he ever allowed to run free outside of the boundaries of the family home.

If Lennox lived in Southern Ireland where no breeds are nationally banned, Lennox would never have been seized at all. Lennox has been offered a place of safety with a reputable rescue in many parts of the world where he could legally live out the rest of his life.  Most recently he was invited by an organization led by the reputable dog handler Mr. Cesar Milan in the United States of America.

I understand that you have the power to grant a Pardon and we beg of you to do all within your power to allow Lennox the chance of life by requesting Lennox be granted safe passage to the United States of America or any other country where a rescue placement is awaiting him. 

I am sure you are aware of how emotionally committed good owners are to their pets.  Dogs are part of the families to which they belong.  In this particular case the little girl Brooke Barnes, a child afflicted with asthma and physical disabilities, was very much attached to Lennox and consistently relied and depended upon him for her safety and well being.  Please spare the owner the further trauma of destroyingLennoxso needlessly.  Please Pardon Lennox and allow a blameless animal the chance of life.

Offers  are still before the court by well-known trainers Victoria Stilwell and Cesar Millan for Lennox to be released to them in theU.S.

 Yours faithfully,

sent,we will see how they respond,think they are filtering our e-mails,some are bouncing right back to us.

Subject:      Cairo Univ. , Veterinary Medicine



Dear Prof.Dr. Fathy Farouk,

   I'm shocked by the practices at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine
in Cairo University, Egypt.

   I will never understand how anyone in the field of medicine can
create such pain and agony.
People who are supposedly learning to treat sick and injured animals
and provide comfort and healing to them- instead they are causing such
extreme pain and fear to them!

   I didn't watch the videos but surely, these animals cried out in pain
that shuddered even the farthest vastness of the universe.
   What is the point of being a human being if we cause unrelenting,
merciless pain?
   There is NO justification in today's world of technical advancements
to be okay with animal cruelty and this kind of torment!

I ask you to replace the members of Cairo University’s 'Animal Welfare
and Rights' Committee because of these athrocities, and to include members of Egyptian Animal Rights
Organizations on the new Committee.

I urge you to do everything in your power to stop the abuse of animals.


Australia:      They're asking for help!   The letter can be copied and pasted in the webform  on: (select Commissioner's Office/Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione )


SO CARES... requests that the NSW Police Minister and the Commission 
of Police to investigate the sudden rise in dog thefts & dog fighting 
rings throughout the Hunter Valley as reported in the Newcastle Herald 

We're asking you all to write to both the NSW Commissioner of Police, 
Andrew Scipione, and the NSW Police Minister, Michael Gallacher, to 
get them to established said Police Taskforce. So please use the 
following letter and copy/paste it to an email to the Minister as well 
as the Police Online Feedback form provided below for the Police 
Commissioner. You just have to add your name at the bottom.




Police Minister Michael Gallacher MP,


Dear Sir:


As a dog-lover and law abiding citizen I am distressed and concerned 
to read in recent media reports of dogs being stolen in the Hunter 
area. It appears that the thieves are entering fully fenced yards to 
steal family pets.

I have also been in contact with people from dog rescue organizations 
in the Hunter region and there are concerns that these dogs are being 
used for dog-fighting rings. Stolen dogs have been found with injuries 
on them consistent with dog fighting.

These dog fighting concerns are echoed in the media reports.

Dog fighting subjects the dogs in question to fear and cruelty. Those 
that participate in this activity clearly have contempt for the law. 
It can be assumed that they are involved in other illegal activities.

Clearly while some dogs are being used as bait, other dogs are being 
encouraged to be aggressive. These aggressive dogs pose a threat to 
the community.

It would appear that the despite dogs being stolen, dogs being found 
with injuries and complaints being lodged with the police that little 
or no inroads have been made in stopping the thefts which appear to 
have spiked of late.

Therefore I support the Taskforce as proposed by the Society of 
Companion Animal Rescuers (to investigate the theft of dogs and dog 
fighting rings) be established to look into this issue of stolen dogs 
as a matter of urgency. Clearly those who are stealing the dogs have 
contempt for the law and lack of any sort of empathy with those whose 
dogs (which in many cases are beloved family members) they are stealing.

I also am very concerned that when the relevant authorities are 
alerted to dogs fighting in back yards and dangerous dogs, that 
appropriate action is not taken. I refer to recent media reports into 
a dog attack in the Mirrabooka area and understand that concerns about 
these dogs attacking each other, as well as other animals were made to 
the council and RSPCA yet appropriate action was not taken. Please see below:

I would appreciate a reply advising what action the NSW police intend 
to take in this serious matter that appears to have links to organised 
crime or at least localised gangs.

Yours sincerely,

To: ; ; ;

Subject: Killing of Stray's, proposals

Sir, Madam; 

We live in Europe, your country is part of the EU. 

So if you want to tackle the problem of stray dogs, as your plans are at this moment, we can no longerconsider your country Bulgaria as a civilized, modern country within Europe.

No tourist wants to spend his holiday's in such a country.   The Bulgarians have created this problem themselves and your country is  responsible for the population of stray dogs,by letting owners dump their pets in the streets and in the fields.  This should be a major cause of concern. Owners should be forced by law to have their dogs and cats neutered, and to take decent care of them.

It is required of all NGOs, as well as by the World health Organization, the WHO, to have the stray animals  castrated and sterilized, in order to keep the population under control.   Budgets should be spent on this program, as required by the EU, NOT on killing stray animals. 

Your country will be boycotted in many ways if you decide to continue such cruel, sadistic, backwards measures.

already done earlier th&anks Val

Thanks guys!
