Attention to anyone in the Dayton area:
This is Parker, a little sweetheart of a stray who has been hanging around my apartment complex for a few months. Now though, with the weather getting colder and other cats starting to beat up on her (she’s front declawed and can’t properly defend herself), I’m worried that she won’t do very well; I had to take her to the vet today because a bite on her foot from another cat got infected.
I would love to keep her, but I already have a cat and can only keep one in my apartment. I’m waiting to hear back from some no-kill shelters, but If anyone can find room in their home for this cuddly little cat in the meantime, PLEASE let me know. If you can’t reimburse her medical expenses that’s all right; I’m even willing to get her her shots if that would make the difference in getting her settled with a warm and loving home.
Vital Statistics :
- 6lbs 8oz
- Litter trained
Declawed and a stray? UH! I hate when people declaw their Poor girl.
She is gorgeous! I would take he in a heart beat if I lived closer. Someone please help her find a home!

Philly gives me that look too when I won’t allow him on something, or there isn’t room for him to jump up yet.
“I adopted Oscar from a no-kill shelter in Chicago called PAWS. I wasn’t even looking for a dog at the time, but I could not resist and could not deny his charm. I was hooked. Oscar and I have been through a lot together: Cross-country moves, breakups, letdowns… He’s been a constant in my life, and it feels good to know that he loves me unconditionally.” - Crystal Reed about her dog Oscar.

American Bulldog needs foster care. Who is willing to give him a home or a place to stay while looking for a home?

367 DOGS SAVED FROM MULTI-STATE DOG FIGHTING RING - “The Humane Society of the United States and The ASPCA…at the request of the United States Attorney’s Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, assisted in seizing 367 dogs in Alabama, Mississippi, and Georgia in what is believed to be the second-largest dogfighting raid in U.S. history.”
Pursuant to a three-year investigation, authorities busted a large dog-fighting ring spanning several southern U.S. states and saved 367 dogs. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) and Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) assisted in rescuing the dogs, most of whom were kept in poor conditions and required medical attention. Read more from the HSUS website:
After a three-year investigation initiated by the Auburn Police, 13 search warrants were executed Friday morning, Aug. 23, throughout Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, and Texas. Ten suspects were arrested and indicted on felony dogfighting charges. Federal and local officials also seized firearms and drugs, as well as more than $500,000 in cash from dogfighting gambling activities that took place over the course of the investigation. Remains of dead animals were also discovered on some properties where dogs were housed and allegedly fought. If convicted, defendants could face up to five years in prison, as well as fines and restitution.
ASPCA and The HSUS responders helped manage the removal and transport of the dogs to temporary emergency shelters in undisclosed locations. Responders are also providing veterinary care and behavior enrichment to the dogs, which are estimated to range in age from just several days to 10-12 years. Both groups also assisted authorities with collecting forensic evidence to be submitted for prosecution.
Conditions of the dogs varied, but one veterinarian commented on the large number of dogs who appeared emaciated. In one yard, 114 dogs, the majority tethered to heavy chains, sat in 90 degree heat, scratching at fleas, with no fresh water or food visible anywhere on the property. Some appeared to have no access to water at all, and many exhibited wounds, scars and other conditions consistent with dogfighting.
Thanks to exhaustive efforts, these dogs will no longer be subjected to evil. Hopefully they all recover from their injuries soon. Click here for the full story. You can also follow the hashtag #367rescue on Twitter for breaking news on the rescue. (Photos from HSUS and ASPCA Facebook pages)
Dog fighters are fucking scum of the earth. They should be put down.

Racism Is For The Pits
"These are terriers, not terrorists."
Only thing we fight is discrimination!
We are here to destroy the stereotypes about these dogs! To help people view them as individuals. We are here to fight for a breed that used to fight for us. You are the world to your dogs, so I hope the human race doesn't completely forget that.
I also give training advice. If you are located near me or have a quistion don't hesitate to contact me;
