We just read about another dreadful scene where more than 360 starving animals were found living in squalor and disease. According to the report, "the 363 animals include more than 70 dogs and more than three dozen cats, plus donkeys, rabbits, ducks, chickens, and exotic fish. The Humane Society of Missouri and Polk County also found 12 to 15 dead rabbits, dogs, cats, and poultry." Other photos besides the one above are pretty gruesome.
The ironic name of the place? Pleasant Hope, Missouri.
Now I, Jake, came from a puppy mill in Joplin, Missouri, not too far from Pleasant Hope. And we think Just Harry may have had similar origins. So my heart immediately went out to all those creatures who are experiencing what I might have experienced, and what some of my relatives certainly must have experienced.
Contrast this inhumanity with the love and caring we just poured out on behalf of our wirey pal, Jackson.
