Pennsylvania home had 85 cats living in ‘deplorable conditions,’ most with untreated wounds and fleas: reports

Westlake Legal Group 001dog_fence Pennsylvania home had 85 cats living in ‘deplorable conditions,’ most with untreated wounds and fleas: reports fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/pennsylvania fox-news/lifestyle/pets fox news fnc/us fnc Bradford Betz article 57bce30d-eb12-52c9-9168-db760343f369

An animal shelter pulled 87 pets from a Pennsylvania home earlier this month after authorities deemed the house unfit for human occupancy, according to reports.

Brandywine Valley SPCA, a no-kill admission shelter, said animal protective services officers removed the pets from the Phoenixville home over two days. Phoenixville is about 30 miles northwest of Philadelphia.

Officials cited by Philadelphia’s WPVI-TV said the floor of the home was covered in feces, while most of the cats had fleas and ear mites. Others reportedly had untreated wounds.

An underweight dog, meanwhile, was found with a skin disease that left half of her hairless, officials said. The dog was also blind and suffering from a dental disease that will require a full teeth extraction, the Ashbury Park Press reported.

SPCA said the cats were found to have been socialized. The healthiest found among them would be ready for adoption as early as Thursday, they said.

“This is a very unfortunate situation of a well-meaning cat lover getting in over her head and not reaching out for help,” said Adam Lamb, SPCA’s CEO. “There’s no excuse for animals to suffer in conditions like this. We need the community to know we’re here to help, and we depend on neighbors, relatives, and friends to report circumstances of concern before conditions get this bad.”

Animal protective services said they will file charges against the three people living at the Phoenixville home.

California firefighters save dog stuck in culvert pipe by using treats

California firefighters saved an adventurous dog from inside a narrow culvert pipe on Tuesday using tools more powerful than the Jaws of Life: tasty treats.

The unnamed pup’s leg became stuck in a pipe off Kearsarge Mill Road in Alta, located about 60 miles northeast of Sacramento, CAL Fire’s Nevada-Yuba-Placer Unit wrote on Facebook.

Placer County firefighters of Alta Station 33 responded and maneuvered her leg free, according to the post. A photo showed the dog’s head sticking out of the pipe as she was coaxed out with a treat.

Disabled Florida dog stolen in car found: ‘Zorra is gone, she is dead’

A disabled dog resting inside a car that was stolen in Florida last week — prompting the dog’s desperate owner to plead for her return — has been found dead, a rescue group said.

Zorra, a 13-year-old Husky-Shepherd mix with paralyzed back legs, was found dead Monday, 100+ Abandoned Dogs of Everglades Florida posted online. The car the dog was stolen in reportedly was found Monday in a pond in Lauderdale Lakes.

“Zorra is gone, she is dead,” Amy Roman, the founder of the group, said in a Facebook video. “I hope that they find this piece of s— and he pays for what he did.”

The Broward County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement that “the investigation into the auto theft and death of the canine continues.”

“Monday night, BSO Regional Communications received a call from a towing company regarding a blue 2005 Volvo that had previously been reported stolen,” the statement said. “BSO deputies responded to the towing company and confirmed the car was stolen and confirmed a canine was found deceased in the car. Investigators are awaiting the results of a necropsy. No arrests have been made at this time.”

The dog’s owner, Wanda Ferrari, had left Zorra in an air-conditioned 2005 blue Volvo station wagon on Thursday while she ran into a Dollar Tree in Oakland Park. The dog, who typically used a pink wheelchair to get around, was lying on a pillow in the backseat, not in her wheelchair.

When Ferrari returned to her car, it was gone — and so was Zorra.

“I was in shock. And you know, the shock wore off,” Ferrari told WFMY-TV. “And then, I was traumatized, and in tears, because my girl was in the back, you know. I’m like, ‘Who would do that? Who would take a car with a dog?’ They probably didn’t know.”

Rescue groups immediately pleaded for the dog’s return. A pet detective was hired, and a $3,000 reward offered.

“All we care about is that somebody — anybody with compassion, that has children, that has a family, even the person that took the car — tell us, give us anything,” Ferrari said to WTVJ on Monday, before Zorra’s remains were found. “I don’t care how you give us a clue; I don’t care. Tell us where to find that dog.”

Pit bull dies after protecting Florida kids from snake, family says

A Florida family is devastated that an eight-month-old pit bull died Tuesday after protecting two boys from a venomous snake.

Gary and Gina Richardson’s sons were in their backyard Monday in Sumter Country cleaning their dog Zeus’ water bowl when a coral snake slithered undetected up to the two children.

“All of a sudden, he started attacking the snake which was close to my son and he was bit four times,” Gary told Fox 35.

5 ARRESTED IN FLORIDA DOGFIGHTING RING: DOJ

The family rushed Zeus to a vet in Ocala.

“I knew when he first came in that something was wrong and (it) was very traumatic because I knew he was dying,” Gary said.

The vet gave the puppy medicine and the family was hopeful that he would get better, but he died the next day.

“He’s been a member of the family,” Gina said. “It just killed us. We just knew the antivenom was going to work.”

Zeus had lived with the Richardsons since he was born in January.

“Pit bulls are the most loyal dog I know of, and I’ve had a lot of different animals in my life,” Gary said.

“If you find (a pit bull) that’s aggressive, most likely, it’s because they weren’t treated right,” Gina said. “If you treat them right, they would give their life for you and I owe my son’s life to him.”

Kansas man moves into animal shelter to help get dog adopted

A Kansas man went above and beyond to help man’s best friend — even moving into an animal shelter to comfort a dog in need of adoption.

The dog, named Queen, is a 3-year-old terrier mix available for adoption at Great Plains Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) in Merriam, Kan., Fox 4 reported.

Scott Poore, who has dedicated his life to animals through his organization “Mission Driven,” said he moved into the shelter earlier this week to stay with Queen when he heard the dog was having trouble getting adopted and seemed depressed. The animal has been living in the shelter for over 400 days.

“She is the most affectionate lovable dog I probably have ever worked with. She has tons of energy,” Poore said.

He added, “She’s just gentle. She’s loving and the last couple of months she started kind of losing hope, and that’s what motivated me to do this. I’m not going to let her lose hope.”

After seeing a change in the dog’s behavior, he decided to decorate the kennel with pictures and stuffed animals with the goal of attracting the attention of a potential adopter.

On Thursday, Poore posted an update on Mission Driven’s Facebook page, saying Queen didn’t have a single visitor, even with all the media exposure.

“Not one potential adopter has come today,” Poore said in the video update.

He reiterated that Queen is extremely affectionate and said children under eight years old would make her a little nervous.

He said, “I’m having a blast here at the shelter, but I don’t want to live here for a long time. I want to find her a forever home.”

Dog alerts family to fire, but doesn’t make it out alive: ‘He was a part of the fire alarm, he was barking’

Westlake Legal Group dog Dog alerts family to fire, but doesn't make it out alive: 'He was a part of the fire alarm, he was barking' Nicole Darrah fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/florida fox-news/us/disasters/fires fox-news/lifestyle/pets fox news fnc/us fnc d66d576f-f615-5c18-8e56-e169fb7cf1d1 article

A beloved dog did all he could to save his family from their burning Florida home — even giving his life, his owner said.

“Zippy,” a Jack Russell Terrier, alerted the Butler family when a fire broke out in the attic of the house, located in Bradenton, around 2 a.m. Tuesday.

The fire alarm “only lasted a short ‘beep beep'” before the house “was already on fire,” homeowner Leroy Butler told WTVT. So Zippy stepped in, sounding his own alarm to notify his those closest to him.

RESCUED DOG HAS 9 POUNDS OF MATTED HAIR REMOVED FROM 11-POUND BODY: ‘SHE SEEMS LIKE A WHOLE NEW DOG’

“He was back and forth. He was from bed to bed, back and forth,” Butler said of Zippy, adding the dog was barking as loudly as possible. “He was a part of the fire alarm, he was barking,” he added to WTSP.

The Butler family was able to get out of the home in time, but Zippy didn’t make it. Butler said he tried going back for him, but the fire was too big.

“The floor in the living room was all on fire so there was nowhere for him to run out. Even if the smoke was this high. He was a short little dog,” Butler said. “There was nowhere for him to go.”

Local fire officials said the fire spread from the attic near an air conditioning unit. It’s unclear how it started.

Adopted for the Butlers by Leroy’s father, Zippy was described as “a good dog.” His owner said: “He did his job, we rescued him, and I guess he returned the favor.”

“He would let me know if someone was outside. With the smoke, he still did his job. That’s just one thing and one person that I couldn’t save and one person I couldn’t get to,” Butler said.

Dog caught destroying book about, oops, canine training

This dog knows how to send a message.

The pet’s owner shared footage of the chaos he came home to one morning. While the mess would’ve been bad enough on its own, the dog apparently chose a very appropriate target.

Apparently, Rev was upset about having to wait to go to the dog park. (Caters)

The video was uploaded to YouTube by the user Eldermisanthropy22, who claims that he came home to the torn-up book after leaving for school early that morning. According to him, his dog wasn’t happy about not being able to go to the dog park until later in the day.

Hilariously, the footage shows the dog standing over a shredded vikynem titled “Guide to a Well-Behaved Dog.”

The footage was captioned, “This is Rev. I had school early this morning, clearly he was mad about having to wait to go to the dog park. Don’t worry we went straight to the park to play and get some wiggles out.”

A THIRD OF PET OWNERS PREFER THEIR ANIMALS TO THEIR CHILDREN, SURVEY FINDS

Another dog was recently caught on camera, although it seems like his training is going much better.

A California resident caught his dog using his son’s training toilet in the middle of the night. The footage shows the animal properly using the small potty, although he does circle it a few times before doing the deed.

According to the dog’s owner, he discovered that the training toilet had been used the following morning. Initially, he just assumed that his wife had forgotten to clean up after their son went to the bathroom.

When he checked his cameras, however, he discovered something amazing.

According to him, “I got home from work at 5 am and noticed poop in my son’s training toilet and thought that’s weird how did my wife miss this? I checked the cameras and this is what I found.”

The Daily Spike: A Canine Companion is born

Today is incredibly bittersweet. It’s my last day working at Fox News Channel in New York City. I’m moving to Berkeley, Calif., to live with my boyfriend, Chris, which is new and exciting. But I will dearly miss all my friends, who have become more like my family in my 20-plus years at Fox News.

A year and a half ago, some of my colleagues encouraged me to write this blog, and the response to it has been amazing. So first, thank you for reading. But it won’t be ending — I will continue to share updates on Spike, so please keep reading.

THE DAILY SPIKE: SPIKE GETS HIS FIRST REPORT CARD

But there’s more: This blog will start to follow a new Canine Companions for Independence service-dog-in-training!

My show’s anchor, Dana Perino, has been incredibly supportive of Spike and Canine Companions for Independence. As a token of their appreciation, Canine Companions gave her the honor of naming a  puppy. Did she pick Jasper? Or Perino? Or W? Or Greg Gutfeld? Nope.

She picked Tyrus, after our favorite Friday guest.

Tyrus is one of Spike’s biggest fans, and has done great work with Canine Companions, raising both awareness and money. Tyrus was there for me at the ceremony on the day Spike and I said goodbye, and I could not have had a better shoulder to cry on.

FOLLOW US ON FACEBOOK FOR MORE FOX LIFESTYLE NEWS

And puppy Tyrus was born on Wednesday, Sept. 11. He’s a healthy lab puppy weighing about one pound. He also has three brothers and three sisters, and they are all beautiful. The puppies’ mom, Oceana, has been lovingly caring for her pups since delivery.

I will have the honor of raising puppy Tyrus for Canine Companions. Raising Spike in New York City had a lot of challenges: crowds, weather, subways, elevators, loud noises. Raising Tyrus in Berkeley will certainly have its own set of challenges.  But it won’t have 3 a.m. potty runs in the snow.

You’ll be hearing a lot more about puppy Tyrus in the coming days. Stay tuned!

Long Island man who strangled neighbor’s pit bull faces animal cruelty charge

A Long Island man has been charged with animal cruelty in the choking death of Rex, a neighbor’s pet pit bull.

Toquoc Huynh appeared in front of a judge Thursday in a courtroom packed with pit bull lovers wearing t-shirts that said, “Justice for Rex,” according to reports.

“He choked him out, suffocated him and threw him to the ground,” Rex’s owner Dominic Primerano said of Huynh, according to WNBC-TV.

Huynh pleaded not guilty and said he choked Rex to get him to stop biting another neighbor’s golden doodle named Quincy.

Rex was killed in July in Hauppauge, L.I., after a scuffle with two unleashed dogs, Huynh’s Shih Tzu and the golden doodle, the station reported.

Huynh left the courtroom to taunts of “murderer” and “animal killer,” according to The New York Times.

He had no comment for reporters, the paper reported.

Huynh told police in a written statement that he choked Rex to get him to stop biting the golden doodle, the paper reported.

“Rex stopped biting Quincy, but I kept choking Rex so he wouldn’t bite me and told the owner of Rex to get a leash,” Huynh wrote.
