We have been informed that the Department of Agriculture must cut 10% and they have decided to cut the Animal Welfare Division. This means that what little oversight we have over shelters, pet stores and rescues will be eliminated. This is an enormous step backwards for North Carolina and a disaster for our animals.
"A horrendous situation,'' said Peg Petrelli, the Tennessee liaison for Animal Rescue Corps, which partnered with the Warren County District Attorney's Office to rescue the animals.
...Earlier in March, Petrelli had gone to the alleged puppy mill as a potential buyer after Animal Rescue Corps received a tip from an informant, she said.
"When you save these lives, it doesn't mean anything to the world,'' said Ady Gil, an animal advocate, who donated $25,000 to this operation. "But it means the world to these dogs.''

The shelter is reporting on Max sightings on their Facebook page: www.facebook.com/pages/Lake-County-Animal-Control/265048399132.Beasley said her boyfriend took the dogs out in the kennel area in the backyard on March 14, and the dog got frightened and ran away.
The dog, which she had named Max, was wearing a green velvet collar and a red leash.
Max was among 17 dogs rescued from squalor at a home near Schneider on March 5; an additional 18 dogs, cats and puppies were found in the freezer. The owner, Vicki L. Moon, has been charged with 17 counts of misdemeanor animal neglect.
Beasley and several volunteers have searched for Max at several of the locations where he’s been spotted, and they’ve put up at least 300 fliers. She even brought out some of the other rescue dogs to help him pick up the scent.
He was most recently seen walking near the NIPSCO building at East and Clark streets.
If Max is spotted, Beasley said to call three contact numbers: 775-9362, 308-1949 and 769-7016. Her number is also on Max’s nametag.

In fact, the USDA currently has open multiple investigations of potential violations of the AWA by Ringling.
At least 26 elephants, including four babies, have died since 1992, including an 8-month-old baby elephant named Riccardo who was destroyed after he fractured his hind legs when he fell from a circus pedestal. Elephants are not the only animals with Ringling to suffer tragic deaths. In 2004, a 2-year-old lion died of apparent heatstroke while the circus train crossed the Mojave Desert.
ShareCHESTERFIELD CO., S.C. - Cement weights, a chain, a "work out" area, all at an animal shelter. Maybe the Chesterfield County employees or the inmates who worked at the shelter were using the equipment on their lunch break. Dog fighting experts say that type of equipment can be used to train pit bulls. We're told the equipment has been gone for a few years. "In my opinion, nothing has gotten better, they've only gotten better at hiding things," says animal rescuer "Jennifer."
...One of the county employee's names kept popping up on dogs (Note from Shelter Tails: his name popped up because dogs were held for him. This shelter does not adopt out pits so why were they held?), Jennifer says. Brian Burch, the shelter director, is also a convicted felon. In the 90's, he was sentenced to three years in prison plus a $10,000 fine for coke and LSD.Rescuers like Jennifer tell us kennel tags marked "hold pit bull" were common place. The shelter doesn't allow pits to be adopted. "On kennels, there was papers saying 'hold for Brian Burch.' A lot of these dogs would be severely scarred, so skinny. Every one of 'em, pits. Never another breed of dog," says JenniferAnd then, there's the possible Michael Vick connection. News of his arrest in 2007 apparently gave some folks in Chesterfield County something to brag about, according to Jennifer. "I know a lot of people have told me they have bought dogs from Brian and Brian breeds dogs and Brian sells dogs and so they were proud of their dogs at that point because they said their dogs had blood lines of some of Michael Vick's blood line, that Brian's dogs could be traced back to Vick."
He said Mia Bleu is friendly and approachable and asked that if anyone spots her that they call him, Norman Marques, at 914-497-8425 or at 914-557-9638, as soon as possible.
"So you say that you are getting a divorce, moving to a place that "doesn't allow pets", and are going to "have" to take your pet to a pound?! This woman has been through a 9.0 earthquake, is hungry and cold...and, she STILL HAS HER DOG!"
