Animals and the Law


Laws on Leaving Dogs Outside in Cold Weather in Texas-I will leave this article up for this issue as there seems to be a rise in people who don't know the law.... Posted on January 7, 2014 by StaceyD as appeared https://grapevinesource.com/2014/01/07/laws-on-leaving-dogs-outside-in-cold-weather-in-texas/ Cruelty The Texas Health and Safety Code prevents an owner from knowingly, intentionally or recklessly treating his pet in a cruel manner. Under statute 42.092, the Cruelty of Non-Livestock Animals law, cruelty to a domestic pet, such as a dog, can consist of failure to provide it with proper shelter, food or care, according to the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals of Texas. Without providing for some type of shelter to keep the dog warm, along with food and water that is not frozen, keeping a dog outside in the winter falls under the category of cruelty. In addition, Texas House Bill 1411 prevents the tethering or restraint of a dog kept outside in extremely cold weather, under 32 degrees Fahrenheit. Responsibility Texas defines the owner of a dog as the person who is responsible for its health, care and safety, regardless of who is listed as the owner of the dog. If you are entrusted to care for someone else’s dog and fail to provide it with proper shelter, you are subject to cruelty charges. A dog is required to have an outdoor shelter, covered on all sides, that it can sit up and turn around comfortably in and that is not too large that it will not retain heat. The shelter must be fitted with non-porous, warm bedding, according to the Partnership for Animal Welfare. Each dog must have its own, adequate shelter, food and water for multiple dog households. Consequences If a complaint of cruelty is filed against you, your local animal control or law enforcement officer will investigate the conditions in which you are keeping your dog to determine whether cruelty charges apply. Depending on the severity of the neglect or lack of shelter determined by local authorities, you can be charged with animal cruelty resulting in a misdemeanor or felony conviction. House Bill 653, commonly called “Loco’s Law,” named for a puppy that experienced severe torture, made animal cruelty a felony in the state, according to the SPCA of Texas. As of Sept. 1, 2001, this law made acts of animal cruelty punishable by a $10,000 fine and a two-year jail sentence. Warnings If you keep your dogs outdoors in Texas, provide them each with a warm shelter and monitor the weather. When temperatures drop below 32 degrees Fahrenheit, bring your dogs inside to prevent them from suffering in freezing conditions, which affect their health and safety. If you suspect a neighbor is treating his dogs cruelly, not providing them with proper shelter or restraining them in freezing conditions, contact your local animal control office or police department to file a complaint. For non-emergency situations, you can also file a complaint online through the SPCA of Texas website.Source: http://www.ehow.com/info_12125420_laws-leaving-dogs-outside-coldweather-texas.html#ixzz2pjNrM5JB

Smoky (dog) Smoky (c. 1943 – 21 February 1957), a Yorkshire Terrier, was a famous war dog who served in World War II. She weighed only 4 pounds (1.8 kg) and stood 7 inches (180 mm) tall. Smoky is credited with beginning a renewal of interest in the once-obscure Yorkshire Terrier breed.[1]

Discovery and purchase In February 1944, Smoky was found by an American soldier in an abandoned foxhole in the New Guinea jungle. She was already a young adult Yorkie (fully grown). The soldiers initially thought the small dog belonged to the Japanese, but after taking her to a nearby prisoner-of-war camp they realized she did not understand commands in Japanese or English. Another GI then sold Smoky to Corporal William A. Wynne of Cleveland, Ohio, for two Australian pounds (equal to $6.44 at that time)—the price paid to the seller so he could return to his poker game.[2][3]

Smoky in a helmet Yorkie Doodle Dandy Dog Yorkshire Terrier Female c. 1943

World War II For the next two years, Smoky back-packed through the rest of the war and accompanied Wynne on combat flights in the Pacific. She faced adverse circumstances, living in the New Guinea jungle and Rock Islands, suffering the primitive conditions of tents in equatorial heat and humidity.[4] Throughout her service, Smoky slept in Wynne's tent on a blanket made from a green felt card table cover; she shared Wynne's C-rations and an occasional can of Spam. Unlike the "official" war dogs of World War II, Smoky had access to neither According to an Animal Planet investigation, Smoky was the first recorded therapy dog. Her service in this arena began in July 1944 at the 233rd Station Hospital in New Guinea, where she accompanied nurses to see the incoming battlefield casualties from the Biak Island invasion.[4] Smoky was already a celebrity of sorts, as her photograph was in Yank magazine at the same time, which made it easy to get permission. Dr. Charles Mayo of the Mayo Clinic was the commanding officer who allowed Smoky to go on rounds and also permitted her to sleep with Wynne in his hospital bed for five nights.[6] Smoky's work as a therapy dog continued for 12 years, during and after World War II [4]

We are so grateful for the service of our nation’s retired Police K-9 and Military Working Dog Heroes that we want to honor them in retirement, and ensure the best quality of life for them, by providing assistance with medical costs, food and end of duty services. We rely on donors like you to fund our project , because there are no public funds for police and military working dogs. We are now working with Congress to change that with the K-9 Hero Act. For the last three years Project K-9 Hero has been working on the K-9 Hero Act in coordination with Congressman Ron Wright and his office. Right now Project K-9 Hero, Congress, and the Senate are gathering support to take this bill to a vote. The K-9 Hero Act was a vision we had at Project K-9 Hero and a vision our Founder, Jason Johnson, had over many years on how we can take funding from the federal government and help give that to non-profits to spend on medical bills for retired federal K-9s. This bill will allow for any military working dog or federal law enforcement K-9s to seek services through non-profits like Project K-9 Hero and allow us as an organization to take in grant money to spend specifically on medical bills for those dogs. This bill will allocate $5,000,000 of federal grant funds each fiscal year from 2021 through 2025. The future of retired working dogs with respect to ownership and provision of medical services is often unclear and the medical treatment required by many former working dogs is significant enough that it creates a hardship for the individuals, often former partners, who take in these canine heroes. At Project K-9 Hero we set in to fill this gap. This bill will help us at Project K-9 Hero free up some of our other donations where we can help spend it on a deputy sheriff dog or a state police dog or a city dog. Not only does it impact our federal community but it will impact our local and state communities as well. Jason Johnson states, “For me it’s a legacy as the Founder of Project K-9 Hero. I want to make sure that the work is being carried on for generations to come. It’s time our government take into consideration that if we’re going to use them and treat them like heroes when they’re on duty and during their service that we're going to treat them the same way in retirement.” We encourage you to reach out to your Senator or Congressman to ask them to support H.R. 5081, The K-9 Hero Act. These heroes spent their entire careers protecting us. Now it’s our turn to protect them. ead the status of this bill here: https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-bill/5081/text

Interesting Dog Breed: Rottweiler

Source https://www.akc.org/dog-breeds/rottweiler/ Loyal, Loving, Confident Guardian AKC Breed Popularity: Ranks 8 of 197 Height: 24-27 inches (male), 22-25 inches (female) Weight: 95-135 pounds (male), 80-100 pounds (female) Life Expectancy: 9-10 years About the Rottweiler

A male Rottweiler will stand anywhere from 24 to 27 muscular inches at the shoulder; females run a bit smaller and lighter. The glistening, short black coat with smart rust markings add to the picture of imposing strength. A thickly muscled hindquarters powers the Rottie’s effortless trotting gait. A well-bred and properly raised Rottie will be calm and confident, courageous but not unduly aggressive. The aloof demeanor these world-class guardians present to outsiders belies the playfulness, and downright silliness, that endear Rotties to their loved ones. (No one told the Rottie he’s not a toy breed, so he is liable to plop onto your lap for a cuddle.) Early training and socialization will harness a Rottie’s territorial instincts in a positive way.

About this Rescue

GetALong Dachshund rescue is a Dachshund rescue serving Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia. We step up for Senior Dachshunds and those with severe medical needs. We also rescue young dachshunds. Our main purpose is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home our dachshunds in forever homes to live their lives in a safe loving environment. We sometimes find ourselves providing loving arms and a safe foster home for the severely ill to live out their last days being loved and cherished, sadly all too often they are experiencing this love for the very first time.

Temple TX Call us at 254-771-9090


Many of the dachshunds we get are abandoned in shelters because they can no longer provide their owners with healthy puppies to be sold. Or they have gotten old and are in need of medical attention so they are sent to the shelter for someone else to care for. All too often the only medical care they have ever had was their first shots as puppies. Some of the Dachshunds who come to us are purebreds. They come to us in all shapes sizes and colors. If you are truly looking for a pet that wants nothing more then to please you and love you, then please consider adopting one of our seniors. They are full of love and ask for nothing more than to be loved in return.


Shelter dogs who made it big in the movie.

Sandy In Annie, the red-headed orphan finds a kindred spirit in Sandy, a streetwise stray dog she adopts as her own faithful companion. Since the musical's original Broadway run, animal trainer and behaviorist William Berloni has filled the role with shelter dogs. In 1976, he paid just $7 to save the original Sandy from being euthanized and trained him to appear on Broadway; he ended up stealing the show in more than 2300 performances. It started a bit of a trend; when Annie was revived for the stage in 2012, Berloni put a shelter dog named Sunny to work for the part.

Maui From 1992 to 1999, Maui—a collie mix who was adopted from a California shelter by animal trainer Boone Narr—played Murray, the lovable pooch of Paul and Jamie Buchman (Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt) on Mad About You. "Maui is very sweet and takes direction well," Betty Linn, who trained Maui for several years, told Mutt News in 2008. "He's completely spoiled by everyone and consequently loves to go to the set when we begin a new show on Mondays."

Pound Pup and Friends Initiative www.poundpupandfriends.org (254)274-0077


Fosters are needed apply today.




Our Story PoundPup and Friends Initiative - PPFI·Wednesday, January 22, 2020· PoundPup originated in 2010, when our founder went to the local “pound” to pick up Polly (that’s her stray photo from the shelter website). Polly was apparently deaf and blind, and had mange. Her prognosis did not seem to be very good, and shelter staff released her free of charge, in hopes that she may have a few good days in a loving home. Many medical treatments later, Polly emerged healthy and very spunky. This is when PoundPup and Friends founder, Liz Rainey, realized that with proper funding, we could probably save a lot more animals from going to the pound, or getting adopted out of the shelter. An idea was born, but lack of funding soon stopped the program. But the idea lingered in Liz’s head, and on August 17, 2017, she filed the necessary paperwork to get PoundPup and Friends Initiative formally registered as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We want to assist displaced, stray or unwanted pet animals in an effort to keep them out of shelters and avoid euthanasia or exposure to dangerous elements, human or natural.

BARI- Bari’s estimated birthday is 8/19/12, a very slim 11 lb, handsome reddish tan boy with white markings, he is fostering with IGCA Rescue North Texas. Bari is a special needs puppy mill rescue still working hard on socialization, human trust and physical attention. Everyone who spends time with Bari grows to love him. The happy dance he does, when he knows he is going outside, and his frolic through the yard as he runs back to the door is joyful to watch. He fits in beautifully with a group of dogs as he is easy and demands no attention causing jealousy. He prefers his kennel and a comfortable bed to toys and attention. Do you and your pets have a place in your home and hearts to become Bari’s forever family?

TAVISH-If you’re looking for a very loving, calm IG in his middle years, Tavish is your lad. Tavi (also known as Butterbean) is a charmer and whip-smart. He already knows many commands/words and learns more as his foster mom teaches him. Tavi loves a routine and finds it comforting to know what’s happening (and when) as regards to walks, potty breaks and feeding. This is partly the breed and also due to his blindness, caused by cataracts. Please don’t think of Tavi as a “special needs” dog; his foster mom believes he has been blind for quite awhile, since he’s very comfortable with his sight loss. He gets to know his home pretty quickly to make his way around and will zero in on your location when you say, “come!” and clap hands. He’s just a regular dog who happens to be blind.

EMMA ROSE- I'm a chill girl just looking for someone to snuggle with. I love laying outside in the grass just soaking up the sun and am very comfortable with using a supervised doggie door. I'm patient with my hyper foster sister and have never had a single issue with food aggression, even when foster sister tries to steal my treats! Emma Rose has been diagnosed with bladder cancer. She is currently symptom free (we found the mass by chance, during a routine vet visit) and has started treatment. At this time she is expected to have a good quality of life for at least the coming year, if not longer.

WALLACE- Wallace is a sweet boy who has made amazing progress during his time in rescue. He came to us from a puppy mill and was terrified of everything. People were very scary and it took a couple of months before he would willingly let his foster mom pet him. Wallace has discovered the joy of toys and he has become more and more playful. He loves the other dogs in the house and will frequently be seen cuddling with them on a dog bed. While Wallace has made a lot of progress, he is still continuing to grow. When new or confusing situations present themselves, he will get scared and is unsure of how to react. He is looking for a patient and loving home to help him as he continues on his journey, and you will be rewarded with lots of love!

dumbset Reasons people surrender their animals to a shelter.. When we worked an event in Dallas, It was August and the temperature outside was 117 degrees, needless to say very hot. A lady comes to our booth with a guinea pig in a cage with all the setup and wanted to surrender it. We asked why she would do that? and her reply was she was moving and where she was going, it was hot.... Where could that possibly be. We took the baby and found it a home, you know, a inside home.

Medical Notes for a healthier Pet:

Mental Health Boost Your Dogs Intelligence with Toys There are many benefits in giving your dog the right toys to play with. While most people think that dog toys are only to relieve boredom this is not the only use for these toys. Sure dog toys are excellent for relieving boredom and are especially good where you might have to leave your dog on it's own for periods of time, but there are other reasons why you should consider buying your dog toys. Some dog toys are designed to boost their intelligence where they will only get a reward after they have performed certain tasks. These toys are a very effective method of training. Other toys help a dog to know what they can chew and in doing so you can save yourself a lot of expense by not having to replace expensive items throughout the house that can be destroyed at the teeth of your pet. There are chewing toys that will help your dog strengthen and keep their teeth clean and there are toys that will help teach your dog with retrieval training. You really need to decide what you want the toys for before buying and also to determine what the personality of your dog is before you can get the right toys for it. Some toys are designed to last for a short period of time when they will be replaced by new ones, and these are often the chewing variety. Some toys of the chewing variety are flavored so you will need to check first to see what ingredients they have used for the flavoring or you might be buying a toy that your dog is allergic to. These toys with flavoring often have preservatives in them so beware. With such a wide variety of toys available on the market these days there is certain to be something that your dog will enjoy and make their life all the more happy. Just remember when you let your pet play with a toy keep them in sight to prevent choking..

Happy New Year! 2012 is going to be a wonderful year for animals in San Antonio. You may be aware already that the Austin city shelter has gotten to a greater than 90% save rate due largely to the efforts of Austin Pets Alive! The great news is that San Antonio Pets Alive! has already been formed to make San Antonio a No Kill City with an estimated life-saving launch date of 1/19/2012. This new organization will use best practices from many different cities to get to a No Kill San Antonio as fast as possible - which would make us the largest U.S. city to be No Kill! The world has long believed that there are not enough homes for the pets killed in shelters but according to the American Veterinary Medical Association, there are over 100,000 homes available to new pets in San Antonio each year. If we convince just 20% of those homes, through marketing, awareness, and adoption events to adopt a shelter pet instead of purchasing a pet, enough animals will be saved to make San Antonio a No Kill City (where only terminally ill or dangerous animals are euthanized). Currently, the city of San Antonio euthanizes

over 18,000 animals per year, or around 50/day. This is a crisis that needs immediate attention. SAPA will have a laser-like focus on the dogs and cats who are literally hours from euthanasia, and will provide temporary and emergency foster homes, medical aid, and adoption services to make sure they survive. Our first priority will be to save every single puppy and then move on to saving every single kitten, then on to the adults who end up on the euthanasia list. Just like every animal ends up in the shelter through the action of one person, we need for every animal to get out of the shelter alive through the action of individuals like you who all step up to help. It is going to take the San Antonio community to help make this a success! Let’s all make a New Year’s Resolution to save our San Antonio animals! San Antonio Pets Alive’s success will be possible because of YOUR thoughtful contributions (time and money). Because only by working together can we reach a time when there are No More Homeless Pets. Your tax-deductible gift will give hope and a loving home to San Antonio’s animals. Please don’t delay. I urge you to give

your most generous gift now so that we can rescue animals that are currently in danger of euthanasia and help re-home them in the new year! Thank you and bless you for your kindness In partnership and excitement Dr Ellen Jefferson Executive Director

Training Tips for your Pet Stop Your Dog Jumping on People by Ron Ducharme No matter how much we might enjoy our pet jumping up to greet us, there are many people who dislike having a strange dog coming up and jumping on them. There are time when you don't want it like if they have muddy paws and you just got read for work. So the best thin to do is have them not do it. Keep in mind for many people it can be a frightening experience as not everyone is a dog lover. Besides that, many people just don't want dirty paw marks over their clothing. It can also create major problems if a large dog were to jump up on a child or an elderly person. Dogs will generally jump up on people because they are overly excited and pleased to see them - even if that person is a stranger. Many people inadvertently encourage this behavior by rewarding the dog with attention after the dog has jumped up on them. The dog then seeks similar reward from other people whether they like it or not. To correct this behavior proper training of the dog and all members of the family is needed. First thing to realize is that they're doing more harm than good by encouraging their dog to jump up on people. Again our behavior of accepting the bad behavior and allowing it, will only continue you let it happen. You as the owner must take control and frown on your pet not to jump. Simple commands as no! while holding the pet down usually works followed by excited praise for the good behavior. All around you or who work with your pet must do the same. When you walk in to the house be quiet and focused and if the pet jumps, take control. An alternative to having your dog jump up on you and other people is to teach it to sit and lift it's paw when greeting you for a handshake or similar tricks where the dog will be rewarded with attention. Praise for good behavior and occasional treat will help. Remember consistency is important in all forms of dog training, where members of the dog's family will need to exercise discipline and accept that training will be all the more difficult if the dog is allowed to continue with this behavior. Failure to do so will lead to confusion with the pet not knowing what is right or wrong.


Starkey's Strays http://starkeysstrays.simplesite.com/ starkeysstrays@gmail.com Fluffy is a neutered male born on May 23, 2015. He is sweet once he warms up to you otherwise he is very shy. He does get along with children but it takes him a while to warm up to them. He would do best in a home with no dogs and only cats. He loves cuddles and pets once he is comfortable in his environment. He was born a Feral so he is still getting used to trusting humans. Adoption fee $30

Company Overview

Local Cat rescue ensuring that all unwanted, abused, and abandoned cats in the North Killeen Castle Heights area have a loving place to call home. We started when we came across a stray kitten on our property, he was very shy and sad. We earned his trust and let him in our home. We made him healthy and happy and found him a good home. Soon after another cat showed up skinny and in need of love, so we did the same for her. Next thing we knew we were up to 8 cats, then 10, then we were rescuing every cat we came across. It was our mission to help them all.
