I read these stories daily either about a dog/cat or horse and all other animals and I really feel sick to my stomach...this humane race is a total disgrace and a failed experiment as far as I am concerned....Some of us just keep on fighting the good fight but it never seems to end and I have to say that if
People would just STOP
WEARING FUR, LEATHER AND EATING MEAT THESE ANIMALS WOULD BE SAFE. I mean how do you chow down on a hunk of rotted flesh and with pickles and onions and call it good???wake up world and walk your talk and give the animal a break. the next time you eat meat..think about it !!

Saturday March 16, 2013, 4:38 pm
noted and read the article on 3-16-13 it's just wonderful to see that someone out there helped this poor dog and hopefully will get the proper care and everything else that is needed most of the time these animals do not have a fighting chance, but this one and many others have worked out for the best too a better home and better life.

Such good news Amari is safe and being cared for, wish we could see an updated pic. Amari has been blessed with adoption, a new start, and am sure she will beat with her disease with treatment also, as now she has love on her side. Thank you for the update!

I have no doubt we'll get this beautiful girl better, and on to a life fit for the princess she is...
but i must admit i was terrified she would never make it that far as we all worked like demons networking her on so many pages and in groups...but she was sure worth it ;-)

Noted, tweeted, shared, tweeted, shared. Every time I see a picture such as this one; I want to pat the dog and show it some love. It is obviously that this dog has been mistreated. Unfortunately since I am retired and support several animal organizations I don't have the money to help all of the needy, but I do have the energy to pray for these animals and share the news so that maybe someone else can donate money to help. God bless this little dog.

Green stars all over the place - may God bless those who rescued poor Amari and those treating her, and especially those generously giving to help her care! I desperately wish that I had enough to give to help her - I want to leap through the screen and give her a good home the poor baby - that must HURT so much and she must feel so awful and she looks so scared - poor little darling! God bless you all for helping her - she will be in my prayers, as that sadly is all I can do.

Am trying visualisation(!) to see if it might help poor Amari (along with prayer) - you never know, and if you don't try you don't get anywhere - and it has worked with other things!
