in disgusting conditions.
A woman in Arkansas and her husband were arrested after authorities found 400-500 dogs in horrendous conditions. Some of these dogs were rescued Katrina dogs sent there by other rescues. There is a lot to this story, but it is so sad disturbing. I urge anyone that can help or be of assistance to do so.

a famous mathematician whose name currently eludes me, once said 'the ability of man to commit atrocity is only limited by his imagination'.

and each day i see the news and feel the truth of this statement. its jsut foul and disgusting and these ppl should be subject to horrid cruelty and the shot down the back paddock. they have no use in life other than compost if you ask me, the world would be nicer without them. :evil: :mad: :mad:


i jsut hope the dogs are luckiier this time tround.....

You have to wonder about the mental health of these people. I mean, why would you take on so many animals that you couldn't care for? Do they make a profit from this or are they just people with good hearts but faulty brains? So strange, I would love to hear their "reasoning" behind it all.

I guess in their mind they think that they are helping out, but it got out of control. How sad, I'm sure if they couldn't manage it they could have gotten help from somewhere. It is awful for dogs to be in those conditions, I wonder how many actually have died there, it sounded like there was only 3 bodies found at that time. Can you emagine the mental problems that there will be with those dogs.
