#1. How horrible that there are that many asshole families in this world. Your family member is dieing and you are too selfish to take on a pet. REALLY!! Karma baby Karma!
#2. This nice wonderful women took in all these animals and did a darn good job taking care of them and the families didn't see anything wrong with her taking on THEIR responsibility.
#3. I hope they catch the men who did this to her and they throw away the key FOREVER (but you know it won't happen)
#4. She is clearly a good hearted women, I wish the animals could help her get through this hard time. I wish she wouldn't have tried to kill herself. CLEARLY the world needs her. I hope someone has told her that!
A friend of my sister is helping a neighbor trying to re-home some dogs. It's quite a sad story . . . This lady is a Hospice nurse, she was taking in her dying patients pets, when the families didn't want them. She was taking wonderful care of them, given the number if cats & dogs she had accumulated. 27 dogs, 15 cats. Three months ago she was jumped, beaten, and raped by 3 men, while visiting a patients home in a bad neighborhood. She was hospitalized for a while, this is when the situation for the animals got bad. Then about 3 weeks ago she tried to commit suicide, due to what happened to her. Her neighbor has been helping to care for and find homes for the animals. 15 of the dogs have been re-homed and amazingly all of the cats. There are 12 dogs left. 11 if them are small dogs, 1 med sized. Most of them are older, 2 of them including the med. sized one and a cute Bichon seem young, energetic and playful. There is a long coat mini dachshund, a chubby Italian Greyhound, some misc. Terrier mixes, 2 pekinese, etc.
I was wondering if you could help or know of any group who could. All of the dogs seem healthy, well mannered, appears she's been taking them to the vet, I saw Heartworm preventative, and frontline. Though I did find flea dirt on them. Appreciate any help you can give or suggest.
