  • I have a passion of helping animals and making sure that they know they are loved. My main reason for this topic is because of my 1 year old dog Tyson. I would hate to see anything happen to her, and its a shame that some dogs don’t get the love and attention that my dog gets. i remember being bit by an american bull dog when I was seven years old. The dog was just scared, not viscous in any way. I just happened to be sitting down, petting the dog when it snapped. As a was sitting there, people cleaning my face up, the owners were apologizing and explaining that they were going to put the dog down. At this point I hadn’t really cried, but hearing this made me cry hysterically because I knew the dog didn’t mean to do it, it was just a reaction. I was then that I realized the love I have for animals was definitely stronger than any wound they could have given me.\n

  • Before getting into the main topic of animal abuse, i want to talk about the general types of abuse, which many of you may know. Physical abuse is when somebody uses force/violence to cause bodily harm/impairment to someone continually. The second form of abuse is sexual which is any form on non-consensual physical contact with somebody, especially when performing sexual acts with somebody who lacks the ability to give consent. Psychological abuse is both mental and emotional, this results in threats and/or humiliation to a person. Last but not least neglect, a form of abuse that results in the failure of caregivers to perform an expected responsibility to provide care as needed.\n

  • In the mid 1990’s The Wisconsin State Journal did a Q&A with a researcher at the University of Utah. In this Q&A they were trying to get the results from a survey, that these researchers did, connecting animal abuse to domestic violence. In order to find this out they surveyed the largest shelters of battered women in 49 states. The results showed a clear connection between the two in most cases.\n\n-74% owned pets\n-71% of the 74% had partners who threatened or killed their pets\n\nAnother survey, during the year of 1995, was done in a women’s shelter in Wisconsin.\n\n-72% of the women were victims of domestic violence\n-86% owned pets\n-80% of the 86% the pets were abused.\n\n

  • Many people don’t realize how many ways animals can really be abused. Animals can be psychologically abused as well as sexually when dealing with inbred animals. However, most of us are familiar with the two obvious ways of abuse, which are, neglect (passive cruelty) and physical (active cruelty). With physical abuse there is hitting, kicking and intentionally harming and animal, however, there is also the dog fighting and puppy mill aspect of animal cruelty, which some people don’t even realize is even considered abuse.\n

  • Passive Cruelty is a form of non-physical abuse. This type of abuse causes psychological abuse to an animal, leaving them to have no trust. Some forms of neglects are starvation & dehydration (not feeding or allowing an animal to drink water as a form of punishment), parasite infestation (ticks and fleas crawling in the fur), keeping an animal outside in extreme weather conditions (cold front/snowfall or heat wave in the summer), and lastly when an animal is in need of medical attention and the owner refuses to do so (taking the animal to a vet when they are clearly injured in some way). It is easy To recognize when neglect to an animal is taking place because it is mostly physical. Flea and tick infestations are one way to tell, but along with the infestations patches of hair missing. If a dog is limping, or having a hard time standing up or walking, heavy discharge from eyes or nose, animals kept in cages that are so small that they are not able to move or turn around in them, if they cower or act aggressive when approached, and pets that are constantly left alone without any food or water and are chained in a yard. The penalties for animal cruelty is a maximum of 4 years in jail, Under the Minnesota State Statue, and a $10,000 fine. The less severe cases are charged with a minimum of $500.\n

  • Physical abuse any act resulting in a non-accidental physical injury, including not only intentional assault but also the result of unreasonable punishment. Physical abuse is a form of active cruelty, which is where a person deliberately causes harm to an animal, which includes people training their dogs to be aggressive for dog fighting, puppy mills where dog cages are stacked on top of each other and when the dogs go to the bathroom it is falling on top of the dogs below them.\n

  • Abuse is physical, emotional, and psychological caused by mistreatment or the misuse of power associated with authority. This is not only the case for animals but people as well. It is a corrupt or controlling act that can either be intentional or unintentional. The International Positive Dog Training Association believes that people who truly do love animals do not want to hurt or frighten them. There are a few techniques that should NOT be used to train an animal, such as, choke chains, pinch collars, shock equipment, alpha rollovers and other forms of physical pushing, punishing and/or domination. In the dominance theory, using force or physical punishment causes potential harm to a dog’s physical, emotional and/or psychological well being, which could harm the trust and respect dogs have in their owners. Using the words obedience and command in reference to training is not recommended.\n\n(Pictures- 1: Prong/Pinch Collar Injury)\n

  • Choke Collar: There is only one specific benefit for a choke collar and that is because while they wear this the dog are less like to back out of the collar because the more the dog backs up the more the collar tightens up, which restrains them.\nNon-Flat Slip Collar: This collar is used mainly for safety. When using this collar to walk a dog, the leash must be held in your right hand with the dog walking to the left of you. Also the color much be able to put 2 fingering between the inside of the color and the dogs or cats neck. However, the benefits are that is it does not constrict the dogs, so it is a lower risk of abuse and it is the most comfortable for dogs to wear.\nHead Halters: This is used for safety as well and is mainly used for dogs who are powerful. This helps control the movement of the dog’s head, neck, and nose when walking him/ or her around to go to the bathroom or get some air in a park.\nPinch/Prong Collars: This collar is good if the person using it doesn’t have the strength to pull a dog back when the dog is trying to go after another animal because it takes little strength to handle a dog with this collar on. Also is does have limited constriction around the neck as well as an even distribution on pressure around the neck as well.\nShock Collars: Shock equipment is used mainly for the use of a barrier for a dog, such as, a fence. If somebody doesn’t want to build a fence they will get an electric fence. It is also used to teach a dog to stop barking or stop jumping on people that walk through your home.\nSpray Training Product: These spray products are not harmful to the animal and are said to decrease the likelihood of an animal because abused or abandoned because the scent of the citronella help suppress unwanted behavior.\n

  • Choke chains cause physical abuse to a dog due to the way it tightens around the dogs neck. If this chain is tightened for a long period of time this can cause a pain, discomfort, injury, and the dog could suffocate from lack of air. Mainly the injury caused by this collar is injury to the trachea, which could lead to the trachea collapsing. The higher the collar travels or is placed on the dogs neck, the higher the risk is for something happening to the dog ant there is only a 50% chance that the holder will put the collar on correctly and a 50% chance that the collar may lock in the choke position.\n

  • Head halters have a low amount of constriction on a dogs neck and if the dog is a little aggressive it can stop the dog from biting somebody. The physical aspects of this is mainly focused on a dog escaping. The head halter is known to cause dogs to chaff by their nose and behind their ears due to longer wears. If the head halter is positioned too close to the eyes, this will cause it to push on the dogs eyes and could eventually lead to blindness depending on how often it happens.\n

  • “‘Man’s best friend’ may fight to the death in dogfights, often with tens of thousands of dollars at stake.

  • Puppy mills are large-scale commercial dog breeding operations where profits are given over then well-being of the dogs. These farmers were drawn to this idea because dog breeding didn’t require the back-breaking labor work that they were used to, it was much simpler. \n\nPuppy mills began back around World War II. There was crop failures in the midwest United States, so the United States Department of Agriculture began promoting purebred puppies as some form of “cash crop.” in the 1970‘s, the puppy brokers, the men who delivered the puppies to pet stores, convinced the Pennsylvania’s Amish Farmers that puppies would be the cash crop of the future. The brokers would even conduct seminars to teach the Amish how to develop and run their own puppy mills. This is why Lancaster County, Pennsylvania is considered the “Puppy Mill Capital of the East.” \n\n At puppy mills the breeders perform inbreeding without considering possible future birth defects. These breeders then sell the puppy mill puppies to pet shops. Later on in life, these puppies develop problems from being bred/inbred. The most common problems that form with puppy mill dogs are:\n- epilepsy\n- heart disease\n- kidney disease\n- musculoskeletal disorders (such as hip dysplasia)\n- blood disorders (such as anemia)\n- deafness\n- eye problems (such as glaucoma & cataracts)\n- respiratory disorders\n\non top of that, when the puppies are in the pet stores they develop over infirmities;\n- fleas\n- ticks\n- intestinal parasites\n- heartworms\n- kennel cough\n\nThe dogs in puppy mills are kept in overcrowded and unsanitary living conditions. These dogs live without a proper amount of veterinary care, food, water, and socialization. All the dogs are kept in stacked up wired cages, that injure their paws and their legs, and do not have the experience of play with toys, other dogs, or the taste of a treat. They pretty much spend their time in cages that are to small for them and never experience the wind or the sunlight out the outdoors.\n\nAt puppy mills the dogs are bred at any opportunity they can get. A female dogs reproduces and are hardly given any recovery time before breeding again. Once the females have bred to the point where they are unable to, they are killed because they have no used to the puppy mill owner any more.\n\nThe state of Missouri is known to be the largest puppy mill state in the country.\n\n

She is about 6 years old and her birthday is estimated to be about january 1st in the year 2006. Jo was a private surrender, meaning she was brought to MLAR by her owners because they could no longer take care of her or afford to take care of her. Some may look at this as neglect, but others could see this has what is best for her. She is happy and taken care of at the shelter and she is definitely in good hands.\n

  • Both dogs are a breed called Jindo, a Korean hunting dog. There are three of them in the entire shelter, but I have only been able to work with two, due to my color rank. Jindo’s don’t get along with other dogs, not even their own breed, but they are the most loyal and playful dogs that I have worked with. Yuri is estimated to be about six years old and is a female Jindo, her birthday is in the month of November and she was born in the year 2005. Lotus is also a female Jindo and is about 5 years of age. Her estimated birthday is in the month of July in the year 2006. Both of these dogs have the same story, five Jindo’s were found in a wooden crate outside somebody’s house. They were to become food for the family at dinner time. However, before anything happened to them, they were rescued and placed in the Main Line Animal Rescue facility, just as happy and fun loving as ever.\n

  • Gumby is a male Chihuahua, while I was working with him he was very scared. He didn’t bark or make a sound, he didn’t want to even leave his cage and leave his cage members behind. When I picked him up he was just still, he didn’t move and when I brought him to a play yard, Gumby just hid under the lawn chairs. He is about seven years old and his estimated birthday is October 1st of 2004. Gumby was originally living in the Phoenixville SPCA, but he wasn’t getting adopted so they were going to put him down. Luckily, MLAR took him in to give him a chance to find a family and a home to live in.\n

  • Shamee is a male Shiba Inu. He is very energetic, and loves to play in the bigger fields so he can run around. Most of the time he chases his tail stops and then sprints across the field. I remember taking pictures of him, as soon as pointed the camera in his direction he sat down and tilted his head so i could take a picture. Shamee’s esimated birthday is July 1st in 2006 making her around the age of five. Shamee was also taken from the local Phoenixville SPCA and surprisingly still has yet to be adopted, but she it definitely one of teh favorite dogs among the volunteers.\n

  • Madeline is a female Shih Itzu. She is one of the friendliest dogs in the shelter and her favorite thing is pretty much begging for treats from the volunteers, and she gets them because all the volunteers love her and especially her little under bite. She really isn’t too energetic or too calm, she it right in the middle, but she loves to be walked. She is only one year old due to her estimated birthday of January 1st of 2010. Madeline was taken from the SPCA, she was taken the MLAR because of the SPCA overflowing with dogs and lack of room for new ones to come in, but she is safe and sound in MLAR and is playing with all of her new friends.\n

  • Animal abuse can happen right under your nose and sometimes you may not even realize its happening. Dog fighting is a way of life for some of these dogs, they have been fighting for their entire lives. Female dogs in puppy mills may never get a chance to live in a loving home, they only know the life of reproduction. However, some dogs, in shelters, still have a chance to find people that love them. Everyone can help these animals. Even just volunteering at an animal shelter has a huge impact on these animals because no matter how scared they may be, just sitting in their run with them lets them know that humans aren’t all bad and somebody can care about them. You wouldn’t believe the bond that you develop with some of the dogs, I never want to leave. Thank you for listening.\n
