2016 Prevent Cruelty


Patches had terror in his eyes as he took his first tentative steps towards us. He'd never known anything but cruelty and neglect at the hands of people. He was a stray until someone found him, but then chained him up behind their house, alone and afraid.

Dogs that are tied up in a yard round the clock forget how to play, how to love and sadly, how to be a dog.

Say "NO" to cruelty and neglect.

A gift of $72 will give 2 pets shelter for one day and lifesaving care.
