More than 350 animals found in ‘inches of feces’ in Georgia

More than 350 animals are now safe after they were found living in “inches of feces” and without access to clean water in Habersham County.

The animals — including a horse, dogs and puppies, cats, donkeys, pigs, chickens and ducks — were in need of urgent veterinary care, according to The Humane Society of the United States.

Habersham County Animal Care and Control officials received a barking complaint and did a wellness check before they served a search and seizure warrant about 5 p.m. Wednesday.

That’s when they found the animals in cages lined with torn and dirtied newspapers.

Some of the them had matted fur, skin issues and rotting teeth, according to the Humane Society. Officials have not specified where in Habersham County the animals were found.

Madi Hawkins, director of Habersham County Animal Care and Control, called the situation “heartbreaking.”

Stop the Yulin Dog Meat Festival in China Permanently!

Help Stop the Yulin Dog Meat Festival

This festival is cruel and hideous. It started in 2010 and has no religious or ceremonial value. The dogs are beaten and then skinned alive — crying out in agony as people cheer on the butchers. Then the poor creatures are fed to people all over the city.
I consider my dogs as family members, and would do anything to protect them. Anyone who has ever had a dog knows how sensitive, loyal, loving and trusting dogs are.
It’s time to STOP the Yulin Dog Meat Festival permanently!

Dogs have human-like sense of morality, research shows

Humans and dogs have lived side-by-side for centuries, and new research has given us even more insight into the feelings of man’s best friend.

Researchers at Kyoto University’s department of psychology in Japan have worked out that dogs – as well as some species of monkey – have an almost human-like sense of morality.

During a series of experiments, they found that our canine chums were less likely to interact with anyone they perceive as acting rudely or unfairly.

The Japanese team set up three experiments and documented their findings in the journal Neuroscience & Biobehavioral Reviews.

One experiment involved watching a dog watching two people (one of which was its owner) arrive with three balls each. One asked the other for their balls and, in some cases, that person obliged – handing over all their balls. Next, the person who had given up their balls asked for them back – again, sometimes the person obliged and other times they declined.

Following this exchange, the dogs were offered treats by both parties. And the researchers found that the dogs were less inclined to accept treats from the person they had observed as being selfish.

The researchers claim both the dogs and the capuchin monkeys that were also tested, made social judgements similar to those that a human might make.

There is something about street dogs, about rescues; they have this knowing sense about them.
