    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 that’s 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.

    I'm glad you included the link to donate for Daisy's vet bills. People who could do these types of things to an animal scare me. Its evil sick. I have a similar story as you, Steely. I shut my dog's tail in the car door accidentally. He let out a couple of yelps that were so sad. Luckily he's a tough dog so there was no damage. Tail was wagging again in minutes!

    But someone that would inflict pain on an innocent animal, I don't get it.

    When the pos is found guilty, IMO he should have to pay for every cent it will cost to care for this poor dog. Then the money that's been donated can go towards helping other dogs. Of course he also needs prison time. If he's doing this to a little dog, what is he going to do to a child?

    Aww look at that sweetie.

    Poor baby, I hope that someone can adopt him that will give him all the love an animal deserves.

    We have a newly adopted rescue and we are fairly certain that he wasn't treated as he should have been. But he is now and that's what counts.

    I'll donate a few dollars. :)

    Pet adoption is such a wonderful thing. I tried to adopt a dog a number of years ago, but went through 4 counties and couldn't find a smallish dog and ended up buying one. It's a long story, but it was need a dog and now. We now have 3 rescued cats. 1 we just got a month ago. They now lead appropriately cushy lives. They all came straight from the street. I hope this beautiful baby heals and finds a wonderful loving home. I'm sure she will as usually once it's in the news, there are literally hundreds of people calling to adopt the same pet. Hopefully they will all choose others and many, many pets will find homes from this one story.

    SPCA of Niagara Overwhelmed by Generosity after Abuse Case
    Theresa Fulcher 1 hr ago

    NIAGARA FALLS, NY-- There's a hero for a puppy in need. The SPCA of Niagara rescued Daisy last week. She needs an expensive surgery to try and save her front leg after a severe beating.

    Now, a 2 On Your Side viewer is coming through with $5,000 to give Daisy a second chance. The donor wants to remain anonymous. Daisy will have the procedure on Thursday.

    John Faso Executive Director of the SPCA of Niagara says, "We're really confident that this surgery is going to save her leg. without the surgery she definitely would have had to have it amputated. I do want to thank the overwhelming response from the public to help daisy."

    The response has been so overwhelming that they are using additional money to start a new fund. Daisy's fund will go to other animals in need of medical attention due to a cruelty case. You can donate through the SPCA of Niagara.

    The fight for daisy will also continue in court. On Friday, her former owner is scheduled to to face a charge of aggravated animal cruelty.


    Bolding and colored link by me.

    I'm sure some WS's are responsible for the overwhelming support! :clap:

    Interesting...

    Great idea, I think everywhere should have an animal abuse registry.
