Now more than ever, you are needed to donate your old blankets, towels, and sheets to your local animal shelter. With financial cut-backs, repairs on shelters are often put off, so if it's drafty, the animals suffer. I know my shelter uses rags to stuff under doors. No kidding! Empty out those closets... this is your chance to get rid of stuff and do something useful!

15 Years for Dog Killer Who Beat His Pitbull To Death

... the moron threatened witnesses with bodily harm if they went to the police. 


Burke’s trial began Monday in Bibb County Superior Court. Jurors deliberated about a half-hour Tuesday before returning their verdict, Schwartz said.
During the trial, three eyewitnesses testified that they saw Burke beat the dog to death in his yard on Dec. 18, 2008, after the dog had escaped from a heavy logging chain being used to tether it. Burke used the same chain and a garden hoe to strike the dog, hitting it in the head.

“He beat her until the handle of the hoe broke,” Schwartz said.
