From Homelessness to Death: Help Save Dash

Chained to a tree, Dash awaits his fate.

Chained to a tree, Dash awaits his fate.

Dash is incredibly sweet and adorable. You can walk right up to him, as a perfect stranger, and he shows instant affection. He is currently chained to a tree where he endures the heat of the Florida sun and the torrential downpours that are common to the area.

Dash and his owner, Trish, would be homeless were it not for the kindness of Mike Jaggers who has welcomed them into his home in Brooksville, Florida. Unfortunately for Dash, Jaggers has two dogs in his home that do not accept Dash with arm wide open. According to Trish, Dash gets along with children, adults and most animals but does not tolerate aggression from other canines and that is exactly how Dash was greeted [with aggression] by Jaggers’ dogs. I personally witnessed, however, how Dash and his outdoor cat friend showed affection to each other.

Dash has until the 12th of this month to find a new home or he will be brought to a shelter where he will most likely be put down. Trish will be moving into her new home then but cannot afford the $200 pet fee. Furthermore, she works a lot and will not have the time needed to commit to his needs.

If you are in any position to help provide a home for Dash, please contact Blythe or me at (816) 399-3829 before time runs out.

Dash is 3 years old and has his shots.

Thai police said that they arrested a truckdriver in the Ban Phaeng district on Friday evening and discovered the animals in the back.

Driver Salud Khottakok was transporting the dogs from Sakhon Nakhon to the border in a six-wheel truck when he was stopped.

Bladder infections affect 60 percent of all American women, with a rising number resistant to antibiotic treatment. Now researchers looking into the cause of the mysterious drug resistance have found evidence that it’s coming from poultry treated with antibiotics, according to a joint investigation by the Food & Environment Reporting Network and ABC News.

Emphasis added. Jaw dropped.

The investigation, which aired on ABC’s Good Morning America, highlights how the overuse of antibiotics in animal agriculture has made it more difficult to treat these painful, long lasting, and recurring infections because one course of antibiotics no longer works. The cost of treating the disease is estimated at $1 billion annually.
