Story I like a lot

As usual I didn't put all the heartbreaking stories of rescues in my blog - so many of them weren't memorized. I don't know why I didn't do that when I get so attached and too emotional to them. But from now on.... I'll blog each one I like and put it right here!

Pepper, Our Treasure

Pepper was literally thrown away by her owners when she lost the use of her back legs, taking her to the vet to be put down. The Vet was not able to do it and tried to find her a home. He could no longer keep her as she was already there for 3 months living in a cage and was going to have to place her into a shelter. Enter ME - not looking for another dog - we already had 3 rescues - I found her on the S. Fl Dachshund Rescue site. I had no idea what a "downed Doxie" was and thought she just needed rest to get better, not realizing it meant she was paralyzed in the back. My son and I drove 3 hours to get her and when I first laid eyes on her and saw her dragging her back legs behind her to "scoot' everywhere I cried. We have had Pepper for 2 years now & with love & prayer she is now walking again, no more cart for HER, she is even running with the other 4 (we have added another rescue - Oscar, but that's another story......) and taking corners in the house at a high speed LOL. She has taught me so much - patience & understanding & how to persevere. She is a feisty, yet loving & sweet. When we walk she wants everyone to pet her and say hello to Pepper. She has truly taught me that one man's trash is another man's treasure. I am proud to be Pepper's forever home.

In loving memory

Among many dogs euthanized every day I come to see only few of them on photos shared on Facebook searching for adoptions/rescuing. Many of them find good rescuers but many more end up being put down :(
Here are only couple of dogs that didn't have luck in this world. I'm more saddened I didn't start doing this earlier so their photos are remembered forever.
- Albums where these photos are in, are full of animals that were unwanted. So very sad :( May they rest in peace.

Joy
Joy is a 2 year old female pitbull who is a possible victim of dog fighting. Joy came into the shelter with her two 1 week old puppies because her owner claimed he could no longer control her when pulling her back to "scratch". Joy is extremely sweet with people but MUST be the ONLY canine recipent of a family's love. She is wonderful with people. This family needs to go to a Pitbull Rescue.

Taken from the album "In Memoriam 2"
Joy, left to die at North Carolina shelter
Like so many other dogs, Joy's puppies were adopted out and no one wants Joy.

Joy has fence marks on her face which have been mis-diagnosed as fighting scars. What these marks truly represent are scarring from a dog who's been confined to a backyard with no stimulation. Why are there no marks on the rest of her body?

Because the shelter is operating on mis-information, Joy is not being put up for adoption and is only available to rescue.
One volunteer has fallen in love with Joy and is begging for help to save her. Joy only has until Friday.

Unfortunately, Joy doesn't come with fifty thousand dollars like the famous Vick dogs who were actual fighting dogs. Perhaps if Joy had fifty thousand dollars incentive, the big affluent groups might hop in an airplane to come save Joy. The fact of the matter for dogs like Joy is there are no books or television shows about them. These poor dogs just have a little story in the American Pit Bull Examiner to try and help them.

In 1950, an elephant fell out of a monorail in Germany

In 1950, a three-year-old elephant named Tuffi was forced to ride a public monorail in Wuppertal, Germany. The animal was loaded aboard as a promotion for the Althoff Circus. This ride was supposed to be a lighthearted affair, but the world quickly learned that pachyderms and monorails simply do not mix.

Even though Tuffi was accustomed to train rides, the swaying tram upset the elephant such that she trumpeted, charged, and sent passengers scrambling for cover. 40 feet above the Wupper River, Tuffi decided that she had enough. The animal burst through a window and plummeted into the water below.

Miraculously, this monumentally bad plan to force an elephant to ride a monorail did not result in any fatalities, human or tetrapod — Tuffi (and some of the passengers) suffered only minor injuries. Although no photos exist of this incident, it has since been immortalized by the above, old timey, and widely circulated photo manipulation of Tuffi careening into the Wupper trunk-first.





In 1916, a circus in Tennessee sentenced an elephant to death by hanging

Mary the Elephant. The town considered guns,
electrocution and dismemberment
before settling on hanging.


In the early 1900s, it wasn't uncommon for humans to use their waxing technological prowess for the express purpose of torturing the hell out of animals. In one particularly mind-boggling incident, a five-ton circus elephant named Mary was condemned to death by hanging after her owners nixed executions by firearms, dismemberment, and electrocution.

After Mary killed her handler in St. Paul, Virginia because of abuse/poor training/a toothache/some nebulous combination thereof, the proprietors of Sparks World Famous Shows executed the pachyderm in the railyards of Erwin, Tennessee on September 13, 1916. As Blue Ridge magazine recalled in 1993:


Mary didn't perform for the matinee performance the day she died. She was chained outside the circus tent, and folks say she spent the entire performance time swaying nervously. The crowd's dissatisfaction with her absence was mollified by the announcement that Mary would be hung in the Clinchfield Railyards later in the afternoon — with no additional charge for admission.
 More than 2,500 people gathered to watch Mary swing near the turn-table and powerhouse on that drizzly afternoon; perhaps the number of eyewitnesses, as well as the unforgettable, sad spectacle of the event, explains the consensus on this part of the story [...] Wade Ambrose, who was 20 at the time Mary was hung, recalls that the roustabouts chained Mary's leg to the rail, then drove her companions back around the roundhouse.
"They had a time getting the chain around her neck. Then they hooked the boom to the neck chain, and when they began to lift her up, I heard the bones and ligaments cracking in her foot. They finally discovered that she'd not been released from the rail, so they did that."
 It doesn't seem surprising that the chain from which Mary hung snapped shortly after she was raised off the ground. It was, after all, just a 7/8" chain, and Mary weighed 10,000 pounds. She hit the ground and sat upright, immobilized from the pain of a broken hip.

Once the crowd realized that Mary wasn't going to bolt, she was again hoisted up and left on display for 30 minutes. The infamous photo above might be a real snapshot of this incident — there's also a chance she was hung again postmortem for a photo opportunity. For a similar (but far less depressing) affair, see the time idiot humans thought it would be a grand idea to put an elephant on a German monorail.

  8. STOP THE LETHAL FORCE OF ACTION AGAINST OUR WILDLIFE ANIMALS!
    RESULTS - Thank you for your support with my petition in hopes of stopping the lethal force against our wildlife animals. This petition was specifically geared towards the unnecessary deadly force used by city and state officials in the recent event of the mountain lion who was shot down in Santa Monica, CA on May 22, 2012. The safety of the the general public is always of main concern, but the tactics used were irresponsible and prematurely aggressive. Your signature made a difference and this petition was sent to several local and state officials, from Santa Monica and surrounding cities all the way up to Sacramento. Success was accomplished in Santa Monica where a new wildlife response plan is now being structured and introduced. Please see the link below to be directed to that news article. We hope to see that this plan will be adopted by other cities where our wildlife animals deserve a fair chance. http://santamonica.patch.com/articles/police-commit-to-new-wildlife-response-plan Thank you so much for your support!
