Texas Supreme Court to Rule on Dog’s Sentimental Value – ABC News

Texas Supreme Court to Rule on Dog’s Sentimental Value – ABC News.

I just read this ABC news story about a couple in Texas.  Their dog was euthenized in error by a dog shelter.  The Texas Supreme Court is now considering the issue of “sentimental value” and if it applies to a pet.  This is an interesting case to follow.

Take care, y’all.

Dogswell Vitakitty cat treats recalled July 27 2012

Another Friday Follies recall by a pet food company. Why is it they all seem to wait until Friday late afternoon to announce a recall? Stay away from pet treats made in China! Read labels!

Boggs Mountain Humane Shelter Update (Thanks Randy Travis Fox-5)

http://www.boggshumaneshelter.com/spay_neuter/
Update:
Today (July 24, 2012), Randy Travis, I-Team Investigative Reporter, Fox-5 Atlanta,  reported that the employee that broke this story to him allegedly had informed the Board over a year ago as to what  was happening, and the Board chose to ignore her information. Allegedly, staged photos of Lucky Dogs and the Adopting family/person  were put on the Boggs Mountain  website (even though the dogs had been killed).  There is a  Rabun County Commission meeting tonite, June 24, 2012, about this Shelter, as  this Shelter receives tax money from the county of Rabun toward its operations.
Bloggers, keep  blogging.  Post to FaceBook.  Twitter this.
Again, thank you Randy Travis, Fox 5 Atlanta I-Team for exposing this tragedy.

Boggs Mountain Humane Society Killing Dogs-Part Two

Supposed no-kill animal shelter euthanizes pets – Atlanta News, Weather, Traffic, and Sports | FOX 5.

Randy Travis, Atlanta Fox 5 TV, I-Team, has done a update to his report on the Boggs Mountain Humane Society Shelter–including the Drector  taking $500.00 from a man to place his dog in the Lucky Dog program, and then putting the dog down and informing him that his dog had been adopted out.  See the video at Fox 5 Atlanta.   There is a list of board of directors  and the veterinarians who assist at this shelter (not sure how current their web page is) on the Boggs Mountain Humane Society web pages:  Let them know how you feel.  As of this morning, Fox 5 reports the the Georgia Bureau of Investigation has now opened a file and looking into this, stating that they are looking into “Theft by Deception” and, “Animal Cruelty.”  Who else knew about the killing of these dogs–there has to be more people involved than this employee and the Director Peanut???

Boggs Mountain Humane Shelter Rabun County Georgia Killing Dogs

Investigation exposes humane society ‘Lucky Dog’ program – Atlanta

Boggs Mountain Humane Shelter Investigation Rabun County GA-Killing Dogs!!!

http://www.myfoxatlanta.com/story/19059474

 Fox 5 Atlanta I-Team Randy Travis exposed this–Thank him!

This was claimed to be a no-kill shelter. What these employees have been doing is disgusting and possibly illegal– if so, they should be prosecuted! Taking $100.00 from a donor to save a “Lucky Dog” and then euthenizing these dogs and telling the donors that the dog had been adopted or sent to another shelter!! Watch the Fox 5 Video. The Rabun County Sheriff and the District Attorney should review Georgia Code 16-8-3, “Theft by Deception” and, if applicable to the circumstances, prosecute the offenders.
