Congress just voted to pass the final version of the Animal Crush Video Prohibition Act of 2010 (HR 5566)! When the bill is signed by President Obama, it will become law. This legislative success could not have happened without you.
Thanks to your voice, law enforcement and prosecutors will have the tools they need to successfully halt the crush video industry from creating and profiting from one of the worst crimes committed against animals. Crush videos depict animals being intentionally crushed, burned, drowned, suffocated or otherwise subjected to serious bodily injury.
Today is a historic day. Please congratulate yourself, as well as U.S. Representatives Elton Gallegly and Jim Moran for being animal welfare champions!
Our next November dog is Otis, a true miracle. Otis is a six year old Pug. All we really know about Otis is what his “people” tell us. When the kids in his family tired of him a year after they got him, he was put in an outdoor pen…in the heat, cold, wet and dry. That’s where he lived the last five years.
Otis is blind, so don’t plan on rearranging the furniture. We had one bulging eye removed, the eye injury was simple due to lack of care, he may have had a scratch and since it wasn’t looked at IN FIVE YEARS, it swelled up. After a month he has been able to find his way around his foster mom’s house and he is adjusting very well.
Despite his less than perfect life, Otis does very well with his foster mom’s dogs, and cats, he is playful and is adjusting to his surroundings. He loves to jump up on the couch and snuggle and he loves to sleep in a little tiny bed…too small for him….by choice! Speaking of sleeping…Otis snores like a machine!
Otis is up-to-date on all of his shots, he loves kids and does very well with his foster mom’s grandson but would be happiest in a home without a lot of activity as he does get frightened with loud noises and commotion. He is also housebroken. It will take a special person or people to adopt Otis because of his blindness but we are optimistic that someone will look past his disability, so to speak.
If you are interested in adopting Otis or any of our adoptables, please contact us at www.poochesonthemove.net.
We give them the love we can spare, the time we can spare. In return dogs have given us their absolute all. It is without a doubt the best deal man has ever made.-Roger Caras
