An animal-rights group is giving city councillors something to chew on.

A few members of Edmonton-based Voice for Animals yesterday dropped off packages of "elephant dung cookies" at city hall for councillors and the mayor.

The protesters were raising a stink, demanding the Valley Zoo ship Lucy the elephant to a warmer climate.

"It's actually very safe," said Tove Reece, a Voice for Animals spokesman.

She was referring to the chocolate-coloured goodies - really "vegan squares" made of all-natural ingredients.

"It's to remind councillors that Lucy is still sitting down at the zoo, by herself," said Reece. "We've had a really cold winter. She's been locked up most of the winter."

The activists want her sent to an elephant sanctuary in Tennessee.

City spokesman Robert Moyles said that sanctuary is not accredited by any zoo organization.

"We would never send her there for that reason, but also because it's not in her best interest to move. She has some health issues that we feel are best managed in her current conditions," Moyles said.

He said Lucy, who has arthritis and some respiratory issues, is receiving "exceptional care" in Edmonton.

Coun. Karen Leibovici said she has no reason to believe Lucy is being mistreated.

"From my perspective, I trust the Valley Zoo has her best interests at heart," she said. "She's like part of the family there."

Reece said Lucy needs to be with other elephants. She said animals in poorer health have been transported.

"Edmonton is just not a place for elephants," she said. "The other thing is, the city is not giving the zoo the kind of money it needs to have a good zoo."

Baby's Face

Man Punishes Dog By Drilling Hole In His Head

Target:
Bristol GA 17 - Criminal Court Case
I didn't think things like this happened HERE....there are bad, cruel people everywhere.  It's not simply enough to be sorry for punishing an animal with a power drill.  Baby's life was worth more than a misdemeanour.  Let's make sure he gets the max for what he did.

PLAINVILLE, Conn. --
A man drilled holes in a pit bull's head as punishment for biting his son, police in Plainville said.   Channel 3 Eyewitness News reporter Hena Daniels reported authorities euthanized the pit bull, named Baby, on Monday.   ;"> Man Accused Of Drilling Dog's Head (WARNING: Explicit Pictures) According to Plainville police, Severino Cruz, 32, drilled several holes in the dog's head using a power drill after the dog bit Cruz's 8-year-old son earlier in the day. Plainville police said two brothers are being charged in the incident.  "Severino Cruz left work upon discovering his son had been bit. He went back to the household and, in a fit of rage, grabbed a power drill and drilled the dog that bit this son ... in the head several times," Plainville police Capt. Peter Costanzo said. "He then went to the hospital to see his son."  Police said the chain of events unfolded on Sunday when Cruz's brother, Enrique, the owner of the dog, was watching his nephew, Nick.  Baby somehow got out of a cage in the basement and bit the 8-year-old in the arm. Nick was rushed to an area hospital and was released a short while later.   When officers got to the house, they found another dog -- a 4-month-old puppy, police said. Both dogs were malnourished, unlicensed and not vaccinated, police said.  "The sanitary conditions were terrible in the home and that dog was also taken and placed in the pound," Costanzo said.  Police said Severino Cruz later told investigators he was very sorry for what he did. He remains in police custody.  The other dog, named Coffee, is up for adoption at Plainville Animal Control.

EUTHANASIA DAY IS WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 9
CALL BEFORE 8:30 AM on WED., JAN. 9
ADOPTION FEE IS $100 – Includes spay/neuter, basic shots, and microchipping
BARROW CO. AC IS VERY RESCUE FRIENDLY!!!

Here is an UPDATE on previous postings: The male pit bull was rescued, and large male yellow lab mix was adopted! I hope others were helped as well. I don’t always hear how things turn out for every animal, but usually every week there are at least a couple of adoptions in addition to rescues. Be sure to repost! It DOES make a difference!
This week we have quite a variety of dogs, including many LAB mixes, a blue-eyed HUSKY, a DASCHUND, and several PUPPIES!
Interested in CATS? Please see the slideshow on my profile featuring this week’s adoptable cats.

RUN 1 – FEMALE SHEPHERD MIX
This girl is beautiful. She’s a great medium size and very friendly.


RUN 2 – THREE HOUND MIX PUPS
These three young pups are darling. One is mostly black, one is black with a white chest, and one is mostly white with small black speckles, except for the head and feet, which are black. The markings are highly unusual and very striking!



RUN 3 – MALE BLACK LAB MIX
This sweet boy has likely been through an ordeal. While friendly, he appeared to be shaking a bit and had a scab on his muzzle. I hope someone out there can show him some love.


RUN 5 – MALE YELLOW LAB MIX
I had a hard time taking this boy’s picture because he was so busy pacing his run. He seemed very sweet but was probably anxious to leave! Interestingly, he has some rear dewclaws.


RUN 6 – MALE CHOCOLATE LAB / SHEPHERD MIX
This boy is a BEAUTY. He has lovely light and dark brown fur with lights eyes and nose. He was quite calm and perhaps a bit sad, although he welcomed visitors. I noticed that he cried when people left his run, and at one point he began a mournful howl. I really hope rescue comes for this sweetheart.




RUN 8 – MALE BLACK LAB / SHEPHERD MIX
This boy seemed pretty happy and bouncy. Just look at this SMILE!


RUN 9 – MALE BLACK LAB / BOXER (?) MIX
This very friendly boy would love to go home and PLAY!


RUN 10 – TWO FEMALE SHEPHERD MIX PUPS
These sweeties are just precious! One is predominantly blackish brown, and the other is reddish-brown. They are likely sisters. I was amazed at how calm and quiet they were!




RUN 11 – FEMALE HUSKY
What a lovely lady here! She appears to be purebred, complete with two sparking blue eyes. She has a longing in those eyes, and she sits and waits for rescue to come. Every few minutes, she whimpers a bit. I do hope help comes for her.




PEN 30 – FEMALE BLACK / BROWN ROTT MIX PUP (2007-12-202) @10 wks.
What a DOLL! Very gentle and friendly!


PEN 38 – FEMALE TAN LAB MIX PUP (2007-12-203) @8-10 wks.
What adorable expressions on her sweet little face! Adoption is pending on this one, but call anyway if you’re interested!


PEN 46 – MALE WHITE LAB MIX PUP (2007-12-204) @10 wks.
What a gorgeous white color! Such a sweetie!


PEN 48 – DASCHUND
This sweetie appears to be a little older but still lovely. He / she was shaking a bit but seemed interested in visitors and played a little with items in the pen.


MANY sweet animals are available! ADD “Find LOVE in a Georgia AC” as a MySpace friend (www.myspace.com/georgiaacangels) to receive regular updates on Barrow Co. AC animals and others around the state. I also post special blogs on certain situations from time to time. Please subscribe! All are welcome. Also….

PLEASE REPOST AND CROSSPOST! Even if you personally can’t adopt / rescue / foster, maybe someone else CAN, and it’s one of the cheapest, easiest, and most effective things you can do to help. People can’t act if they don’t know…. THANKS! THANKS! THANKS! J

HI ALL,
THESE ARE THE DOGS SCHEDULED FOR EUTHANIZATION ON TUESDAY. YOU MAY HAVE SEEN SOME OF THESE BEFORE, BUT NOW IT IS URGENT WE ARE OUT OF TIME. I HAVE TRIED SOME BREED SPECIFIC RESCUES FOR SOME OF THESE AND THEY CAME AND WENT WITH OUT OUR LITTLE MIXED UP BABIES HERE IN BRADFORD UNFORTUNATELY, SO PLEASE GIVE THEM THE ONCE THROUGH AGAIN AND IF THERE IS ANYTHING YOU CAN DO PLEASE LET ME KNOW. WE DO HAVE TRANSPORT AVAILABLE TO HELP.

JESS - Jess is a very sweet 2 year old, unspayed female. She has a very loving nature and relaxed attitude about her. She has been very easy to handle and gets along very well with her kennel mate. She is very social and loves everyone. Jess has loads of personality and is a very loving girl. Jess is hoping for a responsible loving home, with owner's to love and care for her. Jess passed her physical exam, was dewormed and was given a Distemper/Parvo vaccine. She is currently available for adoption/rescue.

RALEIGH - Raleigh is a friendly sort of guy, who can be a little shy at first but when he gets to know you, he's a real sweetheart. When he first came to us he was very fearful and exhibited signs of fear aggression, but he has settled into the shelter now and is one of our most vocal greeters in the morning, letting us know that he is very happy to see us. Raleigh comes to the front of his kennel to greet every one with a wagging tail, begging for a pat on the head or some type of greeting. Raleigh is in need of a responsible home with a fenced yard to keep him out of trouble and give him a sense of security. Raleigh passed his physical exam, was dewormed, and did receive a Distemper/Parvo vaccine. He is currently available for rescue/adoption to the right responsible person.

SCOOTER - Scooter is a great little guy who thinks he is a big guy. HE is a very unusual looking fellow, with his short legs and bull dog head. He has a Daschund look mixed in there too. Scooter is a very friendly dog and he generally likes everyone. He has been very easy to handle and gets along with other dogs. He has a happy attitude about him and has a ton of personality to go with it. Scooter has a soft spot on his right front leg, which we think that at some time in the past his leg was broke and not set properly. It will be checked by the vet. However it does not hinder Scotter's mobility in the least. Scooter has not had a physical exam as of yet, due to the holiday schedule, but he has been dewormed and has had Advantage applied.

SHERMAN - Sherman is a great guy, who has a wonderful big dog personality. He is friendly towards everyone and hasn't met a stranger yet. Sherman is large rottweiler, hence the name Sherman (for the tank). He is a very powerful guy who will need a strong owner to hang onto him. Sherman has a wonderful attitude, and a great disposition. He has not shown any signs of aggression towards people or other dogs. He would probably make a wonderful family dog, but because of his size, he is listed for a home without small children. Sherman has not had a physical exam as of yet, due to the holiday schedule, but he has been dewormed and does appear to be healthy. He is currently available for rescue/adoption.

SUGAR - Sugar is a sweet girl, who is approxiamtely 3-4 years old. She likes to run and play, but is not recomended to a home with small kids because she likes to jump on people and would knock small children down. She has a wonderful personality and gets along very well with her kennel mate. She has been very easy to handle, with a gentle, sweet nature about her. Sugar needs a large because she does like to roam around. Sugar has not had a physical exam as of yet, but has been dewormed. She is currently available for adoption/rescue.

TYSON - Tyson is a very well behaved young guy, only 2 years old. He came from a home with small children and is used to having them to play with. He is very easy to handle and has been a gentleman since he came to us. Due to health reasons (human), the family can no longer care for him. Tyson has been taught some verbal commands and obeys reasonably well. He does appear to have been well loved and cared for. Tyson likes to drag his blanket around and play with it, but has not been seen chewing on it. Tyson has not had a physical exam yet, but has been dewormed. He is currently available for rescue/adoption.

SMOOCH - Smooch is a very unique girl, she reminds us of a hereford calf, because of her markings. She has the Boston Terrier coat pattern on a bulldog body. Smooch is a very sweet natured girl, who appears to have some manners, so far she has behaved like a lady. She loves everyone and loves attention. She is easily handled, and has not shown any signs of aggression towards people or other dogs. Smooch has had a couple of litters of pups in the past. Smooch has passed her physical exam, was dewormed, and was given a Distemper/Parvo vaccine. She is currently available for adoption/rescue

PLEASE NOTE: WHEN IT SAYS "URGENTS 1/5" THAT MEANS THAT IS THAT DAYS UPDATED LIST. THAT DOES NOT MEAN THESE DOGS HAVE UNTILL THAT DAY. PLEASE READ THE BULLETINS BEFORE REPOSTING.

ALSO, THE NUMBER OF ANIMALS IRVING GETS IS ASTRONOMICAL FOR THE SIZE OF THEIR SHELTER. THE KENNEL AREA STAYS FULL. THE VET OBS AREA SEEMS TO ALWAYS BE FULL RECENTLY. PUPPIES AREN'T GOING TO LAST LONG THERE. IF THEY GET SICK, EVERY OTHER PUPPY IN THERE IS AT RISK. THAT IS JUST THE WAY IT IS.

PLEASE PEOPLE, DO NOT MAKE RASH, ANGRY BULLETINS ABOUT IRVING. THIS IS HAPPENING EVERYWHERE. THERE IS NOTHING WE CAN DO BUT TRY TO HELP. WE DON'T WANT THEM TO STOP POSTING THEIR ANIMALS, WHICH IS WHAT THEY WILL DO IF THEY ARE GETTING HATE MAIL AND PHONE COMPLAINTS.

THANK YOU


OK TO CROSSPOST

ADOPTABLE DOGS LIKELY TO BE EUTHANIZED SOON

This was sent to me by Jennie B.  This is a great idea.  Thanks Jennie.

Wildlife Adoption Center

Your Gift Can Help Save Wolves
Wolf and Pup, (c) Jack Mills

Adopt a Wolf -- or a wolf family -- for your favorite dads today! Help us save wolf dads, their families and other imperiled wildlife. It's the perfect gift!

Adopt a Wolf!

Did You Know?
Wolf dads play a key role in family duties -- helping to protect and feed their pups and teaching them the skills to be successful members of the pack.

Show your top dad you care this Father’s Day -- adopt a wolf or other imperiled creature today!

Order by 11 p.m. Pacific Time on Monday, June 11th and be confident your gift will ship in time for Dad’s special day with free first-class delivery.

Dear Jennieb,          Please consider adoption, C/P today! & Forward

As Father’s Day approaches, wolf dads and families are under the gun. You can help support our work to save these majestic animals -- and their families -- by adopting a wolf or a wolf family for Dad.

The Bush/Cheney Administration is bending over backwards to allow states like Wyoming to kill as many wolves as possible. If their plan goes through, wolf dads could be shot, potentially leaving their pups to die.

Federal and state officials recently reached an agreement on how Wyoming would manage its wolves if critical Endangered Species Act protections are removed. But this “management” plan could spell disaster for wolves across the Northern Rockies.

Hundreds of wolves could be killed in Wyoming alone -- as many as 2 out of 3 in the state. Even wolves that leave the safe havens surrounding Yellowstone, Grand Teton National Park and adjoining wilderness areas could be shot on sight under the state plan.

By adopting a wolf or a wolf family for Father’s Day, you can support Defenders' important work to protect wild wolves in the Greater Yellowstone region and other imperiled wildlife. That special dad in your life will receive a personalized, suitable-for-framing Certificate of Adoption and an adorable plush wolf (or wolves) for the mantle.

It’s not just wolves in the Greater Yellowstone region facing threats.

In Alaska, state officials continue the barbaric practice of aerial gunning -- allowing wolves to be gunned down from the skies, or chased to exhaustion by planes then shot at point blank range.

And in the Southwest, wolves continue to struggle for a foothold in a part of the country where they once thrived. With less than 60 wolves left -- and one more recently killed illegally -- these majestic animals need the innovative conservation and public education efforts that your adoption will help support.

With your wolf gift adoption for dad, you’ll help support our work to ensure a brighter future for our wolves and other wildlife. Simply head on over to our Wildlife Adoption Center and adopt a wolf or other imperiled creature. It’s as simple as that.

Order by 11 p.m. on this Monday, June 11th and be confident your gift will ship in time for dad’s special day.

Show the top dog in your life you care for him and for our wolves by adopting a wolf today. What could be better for that special dad in your life?

Sincerely,
Karin Kirchoff signature
Karin Kirchoff
Vice President for Membership
Defenders of Wildlife

P.S. Place your order by 11 p.m. on Monday, June 11th and be confident your gift will be shipped free in time for Father’s Day. You can also make your wildlife gift adoption over the phone at (800) 385-9712.

Sad Day - Kelsey Smith, Care2 member 7:24 PM

Many of you have probably heard the recent news report that a young woman, Kelsey Smith, from KS was abducted over the weekend, and her body found yesterday.

I just randomly discovered that Kelsey was a Care2 member, and had signed a petition to help a wounded soldier adopt a military dog (see signature #29,876). She personalized her message in a way that now seems particularly poignant: "Sgt. Dana should be allowed to adopted Rex because the bond between a dog and human is so great that you don't realize it until it's gone!". Wow....

This is such a senseless and sad and utterly tragic loss. I always try to find the silver lining... I guess I can only thank goodness for all millions of good folks who have joined Care2 to put an end to tragedies like this and find ways to build a brighter future. Together we will make that happen.

Thank you Kelsey, and I wish her family the very best during this terrible time.

Kelsey Smith

Please send prayers for her , her family and Friends.
