Dog Day Downtown returns to Middletown for the seventh year https://christ-yoder.org/dog-day-downtown-returns-to-middletown-for-the-seventh-year/ Fri, 16 Sep 2022 06:09:15 +0000 https://christ-yoder.org/dog-day-downtown-returns-to-middletown-for-the-seventh-year/

Kara passed away on November 8, 2020. The first “Kara’s Mutt Strutt” 5K was held on Kara’s birthday April 24. Kara was originally from New York and her family always comes to town to support the events.

Dog Day Downtown will include free treat stops, a canine talent show, grooming, a DJ, an “after party” and more. The Middletown Police Department will be presenting a K-9 demonstration at 7 p.m. at Swallen’s Park (in the green space behind the Pendleton Art Center Middletown.) Most of the activity will be in and around Governor’s Square and the stands will be along Broad Street towards Manchester.

“It’s still a huge draw to our downtown area because people love their dogs and they love bringing them downtown. Many local businesses will have treat stations and treats for all dogs, and there will have four animal rescue organizations on hand, in case anyone wants to add to their family,” Glaser-Jones said.

There will be several contests throughout the evening, including a “Best Bark” contest at 5:45 p.m., a “Show Us Your Talent” contest at 6 p.m., and a “Peanut Butter Eating” contest at 7:30 p.m. at Governor’s Square . Entrants must register for contests the night of the event at the DMI tent prior to the start of each contest.

“It’s a great community event that brings everyone together to show off their puppies, and everyone has a great time,” Glaser-Jones said. “Our downtown businesses are always looking forward to it and they have lots of activity going on. So it’s a fun family night out.

There will also be free nail clippings by Animal Arts Academy, micro chipping and a variety of participating vendors to visit. There will be a DJ playing music and a limited number of goodie bags will be available for DMI tent attendees. Giveaways will include dog bandanas, reflective tags, dog bones and more.

White Dog Distilling Co & Bourbon Bar and DC Roadhouse will host a dog-friendly “after party,” to be held in the green space between White Dog and DC Roadhouse, starting at 8 p.m. with a DJ and karaoke.

Participating animal rescues will include PAWS Adoption Center, All Paws Matter, No Tails About It Corgi Rescue and Brave Breed Rescue, Inc. There will also be an onsite face artist for the children.

“Dog Days and Hocus Pocus were created by our beloved friend, Kara Goheen. She wanted to get people exploring downtown businesses to provide family fun events or themed events that included a passport to visit downtown businesses. Kara has worked diligently with Downtown Middletown Inc. (DMI) to help promote and create fun for downtown over the past few years,” said Jamie Murphy, volunteer for the downtown event and co-owner.

Goheen was heavily involved with Downtown Middletown, Inc. A few events were considered “her babies”, including Dog Day Downtown and Hocus Pocus. These are two events that she really enjoyed planning, Murphy explained.

“Kara passed away unexpectedly in 2020 and it was devastating to many of us. She was a great friend to many. We spent countless hours volunteering together, so events are not as exciting without her. I don’t know if Mica and I will ever get over her loss. She was special. Few people gave 1000% like Kara did,” Murphy said.

The event is sponsored by Downtown Middletown, Inc., Middletown Community Foundation, Kara Goheen Friends and Furball Fund and Balloon Dog Events.

Los Angeles shelters now allow volunteers to walk ‘evidence’ dogs https://christ-yoder.org/los-angeles-shelters-now-allow-volunteers-to-walk-evidence-dogs/ Sat, 10 Sep 2022 12:00:08 +0000 https://christ-yoder.org/los-angeles-shelters-now-allow-volunteers-to-walk-evidence-dogs/

The 5-year-old dog named Bruce had already suffered by the time he was housed in a kennel in the city of Los Angeles.

In May 2021, a shirtless, barefoot man arrived at the South LA shelter with the brown and white dog by his side. The man demanded that the dog be euthanized. After his request was denied, he pulled out a box cutter and slit the dog’s neck in front of horrified city workers.

Bruce spent the next seven months at the shelter as investigators searched for charges. He was shivering in his kennel and looked scared, visitors said, but remained off limits to volunteers for regular walks or time in the yard due to the ongoing criminal case.

Los Angeles Animal Services for years kept dogs seized in cases of abuse or neglect confined to their kennels, preventing them from exercising with volunteers, according to documents and interviews.

Already, understaffing and overcrowded shelters have resulted in long wait times for many dogs to walk. But until recently, the department’s practices regarding so-called evidence dogs left these animals even further neglected by depriving them of the socialization that could aid in their rehabilitation, animal activists say.

Even when it was clear that the evidence the dogs did not pose a threat or exhibit a pattern of aggression, the volunteers, who the department relies on to exercise and adopt animals, were ordered to do not handle them.

A sign posted on a kennel in April displays information about an evidence dog named Diva.

Animal Services changed its practice in June, telling staff that volunteers could start walking the animals, provided there were no safety concerns.

Annette Ramirez, who has served as acting director of animal services since February, told The Times the change was an “opportunity for improvement”.

The reversal came after attorneys complained to city officials and after The Times sent questions to the department about the evidence dogs.

The evidence dogs were largely off-limits for volunteers to walk around because, unlike other animals at the shelter, the dogs are not city property, according to animal services officials.

“We’ve been going back and forth around evidence dogs for a while,” Ramirez said at an Animal Services Commission meeting in late August, explaining the new practice.

Ramirez told The Times that the department has “a responsibility to safeguard and protect these animals that have come down to us. And we also have a responsibility to protect the public, staff and volunteers within our facilities.

Some evidence the dogs were kept away from the volunteers for fear an owner might come to the shelter and grab the dog while it was being walked, Ramirez said.

There have been “lots of break-ins” at shelters where owners have stolen their dogs, she said. Shelters also don’t want an evidence dog — who might be waiting for a hearing after attacking someone — to fight another dog or hurt someone, she said.

In some LA city shelters, evidence dogs are separated from dogs available for adoption or kept behind a locked door.

At the West LA shelter, workers call the area where the evidence dogs are held the “dungeon” because the room is so dark.

“The evidence that dogs have, historically, had the end of the stick,” said a shelter volunteer, who spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisal.

Attorney Marla Tauscher, whose practice includes animal control law, questioned whether the city violated a California law requiring an adequate exercise area for confined animals.

“If you or I did that, we’d be in trouble,” Tauscher said of keeping a dog in a kennel for an extended period of time.

Animal Services spokeswoman Agnes Sibal said the city’s kennels provide adequate exercise space for animals.

Despite Ramirez’s announcement to allow evidence dogs to be walked, several volunteers told the Times that the dogs were not showing up in the department’s new walking system.

Sibal said the dogs show up and suggested the volunteers train with the department on the system, she said.

Bruce suffered a six-inch laceration to his neck in the attack, which was first reported by CityWatch. A veterinarian at the shelter saved him, according to an internal report.

Three months later, an Instagram video showed Bruce and a sign on his kennel saying he could not be accompanied. “He’s just sitting in this concrete cell,” the post read, describing the dog as “just done.”

The Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office charged the man who slit Bruce’s neck with two counts, and the dog was adopted last December.

Animal services and law enforcement agencies can request holdbacks from animals, but animal services decide whether evidence dogs can be exercised by volunteers.

“We do not determine how an animal is housed, including whether the animal should remain isolated,” Ricardo Santiago, a spokesman for the district attorney’s office, said in an email.

Holds are placed on animals for a variety of reasons, including dog attacks or cruelty to the owner. Evidence holds can last for days, months or years.

Although department practice officially changed in June, there is some evidence that dogs have been walked in the past. Some volunteers told the Times that they sometimes took out evidence dogs and the rules were unclear.

At the same time, animal services staff don’t always record when they walk dogs from shelters.

Sibal said the department could not detail the number of proof dogs found in shelters each year because numbers vary. At the end of June, there were 15 evidence dogs at Animal Services, she said.

Shira Scott Astrof, founder of the Animal Rescue Mission, wants the city to place dogs involved in cases of abuse or neglect into foster homes.

“Any dog ​​that isolates himself in a noisy shelter, he has no idea what’s going on,” Astrof said. “[If] they already come from a situation that most likely involved abuse or neglect, their fear is going to get worse, they’re not going to eat, and they’re going to deteriorate.

Ventura County Animal Services has long treated evidence dogs the same as those from the general population, Director Jackie Rose said.

Evidence dogs are walked by volunteers, often during hours when the shelter is closed to the public. Sometimes they’re encouraged by trained volunteers, Rose said.

“There’s no one-size-fits-all answer to managing dogs,” Rose said. “We look at each animal as an individual and try to see what’s best for them.”

In Colorado, the Denver Animal Shelter allows dogs detained in cases of cruelty or neglect to be fostered because it is a “much less stressful environment than the shelter to recover or rehabilitate”, said said Emily Williams, director of communications and marketing for the city and county. from Denver.

In 2014, the Los Angeles Board of Animal Services Commissioners discussed the possibility of volunteers handling evidence dogs, and the department drafted new rules.

But the change never happened due to safety concerns for volunteers and staff, former animal services chief executive Brenda Barnette told The Times last month.

“We never had enough trained staff and volunteers to safely exercise the available dogs and also the potentially dangerous dogs, so we prioritized the available dogs,” Barnette said.

Even proof dogs that aren’t labeled aggressive can cope with long shelter stays. Diva, a one-year-old fawn-colored dog, was brought to South Los Angeles in March 2021 by LAPD officers investigating a dog abuse case.

She left the shelter in May 2022 and workers who saw Diva said they feared she was deteriorating in the kennel. Her records noted that she “bounced off walls” and spun “nonstop.”

At one point, a vet approved her for volunteer-led walks. It is not known if she was walked, and there is no record of walks in the following months.

Another proof dog, Cash, spent seven months in a kennel. The gray 3-year-old came to the shelter in November after someone reported being attacked by multiple dogs, records show.

The cash was ruled in February as not dangerous, but a dispute over its ownership kept the case ongoing. He remained banned from walking due to his behavior, the department spokesperson said.

Cash’s notes indicate he growled and gave a “hard look” when he first arrived at the shelter.

Sibal, the animal services spokesperson, said staff were handling Cash on a pole, which can be used when employees feel unsafe around a dog.

Courtney Moran, who adopted Cash, said she saw no aggression from the dog.

Moran, who lives in Agoura Hills with his partner, Alex Zarris, described Cash as “terrified” when he left the shelter in June. He was startled by noises such as the crinkling of bags of poo.

Now he regularly cuddles with the couple, plays with their friend’s Yorkshire terrier and happily hunts lizards and rabbits.

“It’s just such a turnaround,” Moran said.

Citing multiple violations, USDA is working to shut down local roadside zoo https://christ-yoder.org/citing-multiple-violations-usda-is-working-to-shut-down-local-roadside-zoo/ Thu, 08 Sep 2022 02:45:14 +0000 https://christ-yoder.org/citing-multiple-violations-usda-is-working-to-shut-down-local-roadside-zoo/

The US Department of Agriculture is working to shut down a local roadside zoo due to multiple violations.

Cicchelli Second Chance Animal Rescue and Exotics in Lake City has been cited by the USDA for over 30 violations. Cicchelli4They were first cited with a warning in 2020 for operating without a permit. Once they got licensed the following year, violations poured in.

The USDA says several animals at Cicchelli Second Chance Animal Rescue and Exotics were denied access to water or received treatment for medical conditions. According to the report, ring-tailed lemurs were kept in an unsecured kennel in a garage that the USDA said was infested with mice.

During an inspection, the USDA said the Cicchellis repeatedly lied about signing a North American river otter as well as owning a cougar. Court documents say the Cicchellis hid the animal in their home during inspections.

The USDA determined that the Cichellis lacked the experience or knowledge to care for some of their exotic pets.

9&10 News has asked for comment, but the Cicchellis say they are out of town and unavailable for comment.

The USDA is currently working to shut down Cicchelli’s Second Chance Animal Rescue. Court documents show they could close in May 2023, if not sooner.

Bucs Headlines & News for the week 8/29-9/2 2022 https://christ-yoder.org/bucs-headlines-news-for-the-week-8-29-9-2-2022/ Fri, 02 Sep 2022 13:06:23 +0000 https://christ-yoder.org/bucs-headlines-news-for-the-week-8-29-9-2-2022/

After a brief stint away from the team, the Buccaneers re-signed Logan Ryan. Ryan had been released on Tuesday afternoon as part of the mandatory league-wide reduction to 53 players as part of a lineout maneuver. The Bucs opened up a roster spot for the move by placing Ryan Jensen on injured reserve. Ryan’s temporary release allowed the Buccaneers to have Jensen on the initial cut to 53, retaining the option of Jensen returning from injured reserve in the 2022 season. Additionally, Tampa Bay signed the cornerback Anthony Chesley on the team’s practice squad and reached an injury settlement with wide receiver Cyril Grayson Jr., who was waived (injured) by the team on August 25. “said Todd Bowles of his impressions of Anthony Chesley.”[He’s] a guy we were watching at the start and we would like to see him. We thought he would improve us in the practice squad – we’ll see if he can improve.”

It’s no secret that the Buccaneers are loaded at receiver with Mike Evans, Chris Godwin (recovering from a knee injury), Julio Jones and Russell Gage Jr. With arguably the best unit in the league, defenses will have to choose their poison on Sunday. If the defensive coordinators choose to try to neutralize a player by doubling with two defenders, it will create favorable matchups for other receivers to emerge. With wide receiver firepower in Byron Leftwich’s arsenal, including tight end Cam Brate and dynamic rookie running back Rachaad White, defenses will likely play more zone coverage to force anything in the way. underneath to avoid being nicked in the field. “Pick your poison, it’s kind of how we see it,” Russell Gage said on the receiving body. “We know we’re probably going to see a lot of areas and things like that.

Wolf Trap Animal Rescue surprises Nationals with puppies ahead of Athletics series https://christ-yoder.org/wolf-trap-animal-rescue-surprises-nationals-with-puppies-ahead-of-athletics-series/ Tue, 30 Aug 2022 22:01:36 +0000 https://christ-yoder.org/wolf-trap-animal-rescue-surprises-nationals-with-puppies-ahead-of-athletics-series/

The Washington Nationals are in big trouble this season. They are by far the worst team in MLB (43 league wins) and controversially traded superstar Juan Soto at the trade deadline. They need all the pick-me-ups they can get.

On Tuesday, they received one. National players hung out with puppies from Rescue animals from a wolf trap before kicking off their series against the Oakland Athletics.

As you can see a lot of the puppies were very very swept away.

Sean Doolittle jumped the fence of the makeshift puppy pen and picked up two of the dogs. “Hi, are you awake!” he said to a black Labrador puppy he was cradling.

Top pitching prospect Cade Cavalli, who made his first MLB start against the Reds last Friday, stopped by for a few hugs.

He also lost a tug of war.

Pitcher Joe Ross and catcher Riley Adams brought the pups to the field.

Adams warmed up with one of the puppies, who enthusiastically chased him into the outfield.

The event made everyone smile.

The Nationals are no strangers to having furry friends in the ballpark (and no, I’m not talking about Race Chairman Abe’s beard). The franchise hosts Pups in the Park events throughout the season where owners can bring their dogs to playtime.

The next Pups in the Park will be on September 17 when the Miami Marlins are in town. All proceeds from dog ticket sales at this game will be donated to the Humane Rescue Alliance.

Lake Humane Society Mutt Strut brings dog lovers and pets together – News-Herald https://christ-yoder.org/lake-humane-society-mutt-strut-brings-dog-lovers-and-pets-together-news-herald/ Sun, 28 Aug 2022 21:32:40 +0000 https://christ-yoder.org/lake-humane-society-mutt-strut-brings-dog-lovers-and-pets-together-news-herald/

Dog lovers and their canine companions gathered at Lake Metroparks Farmpark on August 28 for the 28th annual Lake Protection Society Mutt Strut.

The society is funded entirely by donations and the Mutt Strut is one of its most important fundraising events, explained event coordinator Cristy Aul.

“Our mission at the Lake Humane Society is to connect pets and people through outreach and education, and this is certainly an event that is representative of that,” said Chief Marketing Officer, Lori Caszatt.

In addition to making donations to the Humane Society, people visiting the free event were able to browse vendors’ products and meet dogs for adoption. They could also bring their pets to show tricks, splash around in pools, participate in an ice cream eating contest and more.

“We have two rescue dogs and our daughter loves dogs, so we wanted to show our support,” said event attendee Katie Orlando.

One of his dogs took part in the Dog Lovers Days Lure Course, which was operated by Mark Gross. When he pressed a button, a small white decoy moved rapidly along a track. The dogs then raced around the track, chasing the lure and jumping over obstacles.

Gross and his team are from northern Ontario, but he said they take the course to about 90 events each year in the United States and Canada.

Pets were also able to participate in the event’s canine competitions. As shown on Mutt Strut’s program, they were judged on their eyes, friendliness, costume, tail, tricks, smiles, resemblance to their owners, and ability to empty a cup of ice cream in the shortest possible time. time limit.

Vendors lined the Mutt Mall, while Aul noted that the Rescue Row gave attendees the chance to adopt pets or learn about human society, Cleveland Animal Protection League, rescue village, Underground Dobermann and Muttley Crue.

The Cleveland PLA brought two puppies, the Reese brothers and Snickers.

“Last time we were here in 2019, I brought four puppies and they were all adopted before the event was over, so that was awesome,” said Cleveland APL adoption counselor Bridget Thomas.

Aul said, “We really enjoy, you know, the joy of what our mission is really about, and that is bringing animals into homes.”
