this poor dog has been given away on CL twice this week already. she will be euthanized by the current handler if no one steps up for her. they don't want to send her to county. She is a nice dog and is good with cats. ( you gotta be kidding! no ones looking for a dog good with cats??? ) she got yelled at by their other dog ( who just lost his mate) and stood up for her self and this is all she has done. no dogs even got bit... just some yelling and sorting out of territory it sounds like. but she is going to die for this and the fact that her original owners moved... great life! PLEASE CALL 623-707-6951 for contact THANK YOU EVERYONE AND PLEASE CROSSPOST!!! TODAY!!!
Don't know their status. Please contact the shelter very urgently to inquire.

April 25, 2013 Share: Facebook Twitter Email Dear Liz, Horse slaughter for human consumption has been outlawed in the United States for many years, but a recent push by the animal agriculture lobby aims to open the slaughterhouse doors to horses once again.
Fortunately, the Safeguard American Food Exports (SAFE) Act (H.R. 1094/S. 541) was recently introduced in Congress. The SAFE Act aims to protect the food supply in the United States from the dangers that consumption of horse meat poses -- since horses aren't raised to be food in the United States, there are no meaningful safeguards to ensure that the consumption of horse meat is safe. Many horses, such as racehorses, are treated with drugs that would harm a human if eaten, according to the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.
If passed, the SAFE Act would prohibit people from selling or transporting equines and equine parts in interstate or foreign commerce for human consumption. Aside from the fact that eating horse meat likely poses a serious threat to human health, ALDF takes the position that caring for horses is important in its own right -- regardless of what purpose a horse may be used for. Horses should be cared for and respected -- not eaten. This bill presents a good opportunity to prevent the horse slaughter industry from being revived in our country.

Gas chambers like the one above are still used to euthanize dogs and cats now in 29 Texas shelters. Passage of our bill will limit shelters to the euthanasia by injection method, which is more humane, safer for shelter workers, and less costly.
Quick Summary: Calls needed to Texas Representatives to end gas chamber euthanasia
Bill Numbers: House Bill 858 / Senate Bill 360
THLN Position: Support
Gas chambers are still used to euthanize dogs and cats now in approximately 29 Texas shelters. Passage of our gassing bill will limit shelters to the euthanasia by injection method, which is more humane, safer for shelter workers, less expensive and viable for rural areas. For more information, see THLN's Gassing Fact Sheet.
Summary and Background
House Bill 858 has been set on the House Calendar for Friday, April 26, 2013 for a floor vote. Although the House Calendars Committee set HB 858 for the floor vote, it will be the Senate companion bill, SB 360, that hopefully passes. When the House reaches HB 858 on the floor calendar, the Speaker will announce that SB 360 is "over and eligible" and will thus substitute SB 360 for HB 858 from that point onward. Before the hearing, the house representatives need to hear from their constituents (you!) that inhumane and outdated gas chamber euthanasia needs to end.
How to Take Action
1. Look up your representative if you haven't already by visiting www.fyi.legis.state.tx.us/ then enter your home address. When search results are returned, look under "Texas State Representative" for their Capitol office phone number.
2. Call your representative's office before Friday, April 26th and make the direct ask saying, "Please vote for HB 858 / SB 360."
That's it. Your call will take less than one minute and will dramatically improve our chances of banning gas chambers in Texas.
It doesn't matter if this is your first call or tenth call to your representative's office, because this is the call that matters. All of our hard work has paid off, and it comes down to this vote. If you haven't yet made contact with your representative, it is not too late.
If your representative is in the list below, please make sure to thank their office for sponsoring/co-sponsoring HB 858 and hopefully they will bring more animal welfare bills in the future:
Sponsors: Rep. Eddie Lucio III, Rep. Dan Branch, Rep. Patricia Harless, Rep. Dwayne Bohac, and Rep. Marisa MÃ¡rquez
Co-Sponsors: Rep. Sarah Davis, Rep. Jessica Farrar, Rep. Lance Gooden, Rep. Bryan Hughes, Rep. Scott Turner, and Rep. Jason Villalba
PRESS RELEASEApril 25, 2013 On Wednesday April 24th, 2013 Murray County Sole Commissioner Brittany Pittman announced that effective May 1st, 2013 that the Murray County Sheriffâs Office would begin to handle the day to day operations of the Murray County Animal Shelter. This move by the Commissioner is to help better serve the needs of Murray County. The goals of the Sheriffâs Office Animal Control Unit will be to comply with all state and local regulations, while addressing the needs of the county. We will continue to cooperate with licensed rescuers both locally and abroad to ensure that our âcompanion animalsâ continue to find good homes. We want it to be known that our agenda is not to be a 100% euthanasia facility. We realize that there are challenges with change, and we are looking forward to facing these challenges and keeping transparency within this newly formed unit. In keeping with transparent government we are asking that any concerned citizens come out to the community meeting regarding the newly formed Murray County Sheriffâs Office â Animal Control Unit on Saturday April 27th , 2013 at 2:00pm. The public meeting will be taking place at the Pork N Beans BBQ Restaurant located at 304 N. 3rd Ave., Chatsworth GA, 30705. During this informational meeting Sheriff Langford will introduce the new director of the Sheriffâs Office Animal Control Unit, and the new director will personally be present to answer any questions from the public. We are looking forward to this meeting session and addressing all the concerns regarding this transition. SHERIFF GARY LANGFORD â at Murray County Sheriff's Office.

Evidently a lot of folks have called - excellent work!
If you still need to call, here the number to Murray Co. Sheriff's secretary Lisa Sanford:
706-695-4592, Ext 2.
Per Lisa on Wenesday and Thursday, the Sheriff's office will take over on May 1. She says there will still be rescue, and that the sheriff's office has hired someone from WhitfieldCounty as new director.Pauline, current A.C. officer, was asked to stay but she declined.
I was told I could call back around 1:00 p.m. to speak with the Sheriff with more questions, but when I called back I was told by someone else that he is not taking calls this afternoon but has instead issued the attached press release.
I have not received a reply from county commissioner Brittany Pittman to either of my 2 e-mails sent yesterday and today asking why the changes are being considered or implemented.
I still have no idea where this all came from, but from what I've heard and read, it sounds like there might still be rescue going on, but the sheriff doesn't know yet how exactly it will work because his office hasn't done it before, and he doesn't know yet what recommendations and policies will come from the new gal from Whitfield.
I can't attend Saturday's meeting: someone please go and make a report to all of us.
