What a sad story... I think I'd be very uncomfortable having this person even in my house.

My best friend's husband had their black labrador mate with the neighbour's lab and kept one of the resulting puppies. This pup is almost a year now, has already been impregnated by her father and had to have a contraceptive injection at the vets, came into season again, and they still hadn't had the male castrated they eventually had him done it's a small miracle that they didn't have a disaster. Anyway, the point I'm really trying to make is they NEVER take the dogs out! To be fair to my friend she never wanted the dogs in the first place, it was her husband's idea... he lost interest and quite frankly abuses the dogs (screams and shouts at them!) I try to block it out of my head because it upsets me so much, and I've not been visiting so much lately.

We used to meet and walk on a Sunday morning, but this didn't last. Bearing in mind I felt so bad tonight when I visited them that I hadn't taken mine out for their second walk of the day (its -4 degrees tonight) but when I came home my husband had taken them These dogs probably haven't been taken out for at least 6 - 8 weeks!

They're having a large extension built also, so dust and rubble everywhere - sad neglected unloved dogs... I hate it!!!

Sorry about the rant!

Most communities require shelter and water so if there is no roof on the kennel that may be enough to have the dogs removed.

That is very sad and awful. Call whomever you can. RIP poor baby caught in your chain.

Still crazy after all these years.

Do you or your daughter have this persons phone number? Can you do a reverse search on the phone number, to find out where they live? Im not sure if in your area you have a limit on the number of dogs you can have...in my area it is 3. But, the conditions you have described I would be calling Animal Control.

Somebody here knows someone who's connected with the SPCA in my city. She's going to help me out with this. Since I live so far away, it's kind of hard to steal the dogs away.... besides, I'd prefer that the authorities took care of it since it might stop her from collecting more pets.

I completely agree... something needs to be done, unfortunately I'm kind of going on hearsay and the humane society can only work with witnesses

I haven't stopped thinking about that poor pup all day, and the other poor animals that are in her "care".


The mission of the dog---I say it with all reverence---is the same as the mission of Christianity, namely, to teach mankind that the universe is ruled by love. (Dogs and Men)

I took a beagle pup this past winter from my neighbors. I felt so bad for this poor pup I just went over and got it. After a lot of thinking I knew I had to give it back, but to my surprise the neighbor's seen my point about the pup being out in the cold and started to take it in the house.
Good luck

Usually you can make an "Anonamous" calland simply report the hoarding and abuse/death of the puppy. Let the ASPCA handle the rest once they have the "anon" report. I wish you luck, its such a disheartening situation.
