Link Niagara County Dog Needs a Hero Anna Pawlaczyk 5 hrs ago NIAGARA FALLS-A dog in Niagara Falls is in desperate need of surgery after being severely beaten, and the Niagara County SPCA needs help with the funding. Authorities were called to the Townsend Place Apartments in Niagara Falls on Thursday night for a case of animal cruelty. A 3 month old pointer mix had been severely beaten with a wooden table leg. The owner didn't have a name for the dog, but the SPCA has since named her Daisy. According to the Niagara County SPCA, the dog needs extensive surgery or it will have to have its leg amputated. The owner is set to appear in court on August 6, and they hope to have him charged under "Buster's Law," which makes intentional killing or maiming of a dog a felony, subject to jail time. The SPCA is looking for any kind of financial assistance from the public. You can donate online at www.niagaraspca.org or by phone at 731-4368. Donations will also be accepted by mail to the Lockport Rd. location. Link about Buster's Law ...Buster, I really think he was serving a purpose, said Nancy Bonesteel, who owned the tabby cat for which the law was named. I really believe thats why he hung on, so people could hear his cries and we could do something about it. We need to do more. Her cat died a few days after being set ablaze by Chester Williamson, then 16, who went on to rack up a lengthy rap sheet. He is currently serving 12 years in prison for sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl.... :furious: I just don't get it. How anyone could hear a dog whelping and keep doing what they are doing is beyond sick. We had a dog when I was growing up and I accidentally stepped on her tail once and I felt horrible. I had to get a biscuit for her and pet her and tell her I'm sorry. Michael Vick and/or his friends electrocuted, threw dogs down repeatedly til they died, fought them, drowned them and tied them to rape stands. You have got to be a majorly cold blooded assiousholious to be able to do something like that.
