SerLocal family needs help financing special service dog
WMTV
It's not a usual sight for a four-year-old, but for the Zuelsdorf family in Fort Atkinson, it's a regularity. Talon Zuelsdorf, 4, was diagnosed with both autism and type I diabetes.

Chelsy Byers's insight:

service dogs are very important to the family's who need them.

they can help save lives of adults and children. 

unfortunately service dogs are in high demand and, that makes them very expensive.

 there are not enough service dogs to go around for the people in need.

If there could be a way to train dogs who are in pounds and rescues to become service dogs children like Talon Zuelsdorf would have the dogs who could help keep him a life for hopefully less than 10,000.

Talon has autism and type I diabetes his family can't tell when their son is in pain or about to have an diabetic episode with out checking his blood all day long which is painful for little Talon.

if Talon can get a service dog then the dog could let the family know when Talon is about to have an episode.

unfortunately talon is unable to get the dog he needs because his family can't afford to pay the large sum of money for the high demand service dog.

if there can be away to train dogs to become service dogs we might beable to save not only humans but the dogs on doggy death row.

that would be a better alternative than to put a good  dog down.

100+ Animals Rescued from Puppy Mill and Cruelty Situation

Vote for our YouTube Channel to win a Webby Award! http://vid.io/xqi2 Approximately 40 dogs and more than 75 other animals were rescued from a Gates County, ...
Chelsy Byers's insight:

This youtube video talks about a raid on a North Carolina home that had more then forty dogs many in dreadful conditions from sickness to malnutrition.

the Owner of the home was not only hording animals but was also breeding dogs as a puppy mill. 

many of the dogs in that home didn't have any food or water.

 a few of the dogs were so skinny you could feel every bone in their body.

the poor dog was so hungry it was feasting on the waste of other dogs.

there is not yet a law to prevent puppy mills in north Carolina.

with the overpopulation of dogs and cats Pets should be fixed so that people will adopt more dogs that are already here and need loving homes. 

puppy mills are quickly making there way into become a pet abuse crime. 

puppy mills are abusive and inhuman.

the owners are only out to breed puppies  and make money off of them not caring much about the health of the puppies or the mothers that birthed them.

Chelsy Byers's insight:

Dogs can be scary but it they are used in the right way they save lives. K-9 unit dogs are trained to serve and protect and not run away in the face of danger.K-9 save the life of Police officers but soldiers, civilian and children. 

 K-9 are still dogs who enjoy playing like any other dog but are trained to sniff out not only a person but drugs and bombs.what if we could train pound dogs to be just as helpful as K-9 dogs 

would it put a stop to good dogs being put down when people see how dogs save lives?German shepherds and Belgian Shepherd are in high demand as military working dogs.K-9 dogs work for 8 years before they are retired.If k-9 would allow the training of rescue dogs it might be cheaper in cost and there are plenty of rescues available because they are not in demand.If k-9 units can take in rescues it would be a better alternative then to put down the rescues .

URGENT Poundies - Safe and Sound - Finding refuge for death row pound dogs

URGENT Poundies - Safe and Sound - Finding refuge for death row pound dogs | Better Alternatives than putting down dogs | Scoop.it
UK Stray death row dog rescue. Finding rescue spaces for poundies - stray dogs sitting on death row in the UK's stray dog pounds.

Via Keith Wheeler
Chelsy Byers's insight:

there are dogs all over the world who are looking for homes or are lost looking for the home they once lived .

 

America is not the only country what has pet rescues or pounds but other country's like the United Kingdom who also work hard and try their best to save dogs from death row.

 

dogs get sent to pounds because they get out of there yard and can't find their way back but are unable to and their owns didn't take the time to place a microchip in there dog or place an id tag on the collar of their furry friend.

 

most dogs who get taken to the pound are not as lucky as these few rescues.

 

rescue dogs have a second chance at life and can have the chance to find their family or become re-homed.

Rescue dog who weighed just 45 POUNDS two months ago now 'fat and sassy' in foster ..

Rescue dog who weighed just 45 POUNDS two months ago now 'fat and sassy' in foster home - but vets can't work out why Raphael, the mixed-breed dog from Pojoa...
Chelsy Byers's insight:

For many dogs living on the street life doesn't end well.

they try there best to survive  the elements as well as moving cars.

life on the streets is not an easy life and many dogs die unable to find their home , food , water or the care needed for them when they become sick.

luckily some are taken in off the streets where people work to find there family with the help of microchips pounds and rescues can now locate the family of the lost fur babies.

sadly not all dogs are able to find their home or had to be taken away from their home due to the own not taking proper care.

there are dogs out there who don't have a home that suffer with  garbage gut.

Garbage gut happens  when malnourished dogs eat what ever they can to keep living like Raphael who weighed just 45 pounds and looked like he had been on the run for a while was lucky enough to find a family to take him in.

That 45 pound dog and now nice and fat and very happy with his family.

these dogs can be saved and don't have to suffer from malnourished 

if owners can get there dogs fixed and only adopt if they are really ready to take care of a dog.

dogs are a life time commitment  don't condemned them to a life that is unlivable.

SLCPD Chief's Message, November 2013: A Look Inside the K9 Unit

SALT LAKE CITY — This month's Chief's Message features a conversation between Deputy Chief Lee Dobrowolski and Sgt. Eddie Cameron, whose K9 Unit ranked secon...
Chelsy Byers's insight:

A K-9 unit dog can cost anywhere from 5,000 to 7,000 dollars and most cops get their dogs from Europe.

and most K-9 units like to use only two kind of dogs   German Shepherd and Belgian Shepherd. 

Belgian Shepherd are smaller than German shepherds but their nose and bite are both just as powerful as a German shepherd.

the Deputy in the video talked about how K-9 units are switching over to Belgian shepherd because they have less health issues.

German shepherds and Belgian Shepherd are in high demand as military working dogs.

K-9 dogs work for 8 years before they are retired.

in the video it talks about how  killing or harming a k-9 service dog is a criminal offense the offender can go to prison for 5 years.

If k-9 would allow the training of rescue dogs it might be cheaper in cost and there are plenty of rescues available because they are not in demand.

If k-9 units can take in rescues it would be a better alternative then to put down the rescues .

Gizmo the Service Dog

Watch Gizmo perform her tasks as she works at home and during a trip to the store.
Chelsy Byers's insight:

Gizmo the dog is a perfect example on how dogs can do more than protect they can also help make life a little easier for those with limited mobility.Gizmo is seen doing task like picking up the morning paper for his owner.gizmo can also be seen closing the door for his owner and picking up dropped items.If we can train rescue dogs to be as helpful  as gizmo maybe people would think twice before putting a good dog down.there are  plenty of people that dogs like gizmo could help from the elderly , children and adults with disability and wounded soldiers.If rescues could be able to train dogs to become service dogs then there would more dogs available to be able to help humans.a service dog can help their human feel more independent then if it was another human helping 24 /7.

service dogs can do more then pick up the paper but also can alert people to when the owner is about to have seizures or is in a state of panic.service dogs can be stress relief dogs that help people with Post-traumatic stress disorder.

Until There Are None | Dog Rescue Documentary

This documentary follows a group of animal rescue volunteers as they travel to overcrowded rural animal shelters in West Virginia and Kentucky to rescue dogs...
Chelsy Byers's insight:

This is a documentary about how have many rescues who don't judge on breeds and saves dogs who would have been put down with out there help.the rescue helps to give pounds better option than putting down a good dog.

a good dog who had a chance of finding a loving home.Dogs shouldn't be put down just because the pounds are full.

rescues like the ones in west Virginia and and Kentucky who give dogs a second chance.

rescues try to help dogs on death row but there is not enough room to say every good dog.

if owners would take the time to fix there pets maybe over population wouldn't be so bad and dogs would have longer than three days to find a home.

even murders get to live longer then dogs in the pound. 

why should a good dog be put down when a murder gets to live.

Our pets need a better alternative then to be put down 

 we need to work to make pounds a non kill shelter.

we need to find a way to teach people about how useful a dog can be.

dogs protect and are loyal to their owners they can help save lives 

and make life easier when people need them the most but people need to take the time out to train the pets.

DOG POUNDS-killing pets for population control: Expensive, heartbreaking

PLEASE SIGN/SHARE MY TWO PETITIONS! https://www.change.org/petitions/petition-please-sign-share-for-spay-neuter-license-tag-to-save-lives Sign/share: http://...
Chelsy Byers's insight:

a dog is put down almost every seven seconds here in America.

this video is to put out there how pets are being killed just because there is so many of them  that they are over populated.

a Worker going into pound Everyday knowing there will be a good dogs who may have a homes or could get one is being put down not because they were violent or harmed anyone but because there owner didn't have enough time to find there beloved dog.

some dogs were drop off at the pound just because they got old and the owner didn't want them any more but should the dog pay for the owners mistake ?

rescues try to help dogs on death row but there is not enough room to say every good dog.

if owners would take the time to fix there pets maybe over population wouldn't be so bad and dogs would have longer than three days to find a home.

even murders get to live longer then dogs in the pound. 

why should a good dog be put down when a murder gets to live.

under the video is petitions to stop the useless killings of pets.

Our pets need a better alternative then to be put down

Over 3500 dogs were put down by pounds last year

38 per cent of these animals were transferred to dog welfare groups, statistics from the Department of the Environment and Local Government show.
Chelsy Byers's insight:

Sadly many good dogs don't always get a second chance.

they look at workers so hopeful and happy not knowing what is in store for them.

good dogs not knowing that because owners didn't get their pets spayed or  neutered that there is no more room for that good dog due to over population .

that good dog doesn't  get a second chance to go back home or even re-homed to make another family happy because three days was enough time for the  pounds.

 there were not enough rescues to take all the good little dogs.

more than 3,500 dogs didn't get to leave the pound alive from 2011 to 2012. 

That is 3,500 dogs that could have been train to be helping cop get a bad guy , a dog who could help soldiers over seas or at home helping them heal. 

that is a dog that could be helping children with epilepsy or autism.

because it is cheaper to kill a dog than to train one those 3,500 dogs are gone and have crossed the rainbow bridge. 

people have the chance to put a stop to the kill shelters and push harder for pet owners to have there pet fixed so that another good dog doesn't have to die.
