Dear Friends,
Over the holiday weekend, Linda Blair Worldheart Foundation stepped in and saved 9 dogs that were in danger of losing their lives. These dogs were rescued from a Northern, CA. shelter. Due to the fires in Northern California and the overpopulation crisis of pets going on, these 9 dogs became an emergency rescue. California is still in emergency mode and rescues are still needed. We have been rescuing and doing what we can. Everyday, I am receiving sad emails of dogs in jeopardy. It takes hours every night to go through the emails and it is heart wrenching to see all these innocent animals facing euthanasia if they are not adopted or rescued. Please, please make a much needed donation today. These are difficult times and we need donations to help save more lives.

 Recently, a Scandinavian report came out proving that animals extend humans' lives and  they help to slow down heart disease.  Most all of us, that love animals, as family members, truly know this ourselves, and did not need a 10 year study to learn these facts. 
 The companion animals, face such difficult obstacles nowadays, finding themselves abandoned and in shelters, all too often and their very lives at risk.  Did you know that LBWF and so many other rescue groups, across the country, need foster homes, especially this time of year, helping to save more lives and in return they just might save yours! 
 Sign up with LBWF for our foster program through the holidays and/or any of your rescue groups around the country and help a companion animal in need! 
 This is the time to give thanks, giving, and volunteer, helping LBWF and animals and friends around the country who need a helping hand.
 We hope you'll consider a vegetarian - vegan Thanksgiving to know and feel the health benefits that will come your way!  Having saved turkeys in the past and knowing how sweet their temperament is, I wish everyone could have the same experience I did to know and understand why a healthy, meat free lifestyle is a blessing and the health benefits will prove themselves,  reducing heart disease, high cholesterol,  amazing weight-loss and so many other benefits! 
 Your Thanksgiving donations will provide our continued work with cancer prevention, holiday meals, love and support of our important work during this holiday season! 
 May you find safe travels, loving friends and family, peace, warmth and comfort this holiday season!
 Much Love,
 Linda Blair Worldheart Foundation

Pet Safety Tips
Chocolate
 
 
With the holiday seasons upon us it's important to keep your four legged loved ones safe! Here are a few tips to keep you and yours happy and safe this holiday season!
  1. Be mindful of cold weather products such as de-icing products, salt, and anti-freeze! When walking your pet outside during the snow and ice be sure to wipe their paws and undersides thoroughly when returning inside. This will ensure your pet is safe from any skin irritations or more serious conditions. 
  2. Keep all holiday decorations out of reach such as tinsel and ribbon. Ingestion of these materials could cause serious health complications for your pet.
  3. There are lots of beautiful holiday plants out there but many of them are dangerous to your pets if ingested. Keep lilies, mistletoe, ivy, holly, and poinsettias out of reach!  
  4. We all love our fur friends very much and want them to enjoy some of the same yummy treats we do but keep in mind that turkey bones can be very dangerous to our pets and could cause obstructions. Holiday sweets such as chocolate are dangerous too! Keep the yummies out of reach of your furry friends.  
With the holidays come lots of visitors and/or out of town trips. It's important to ensure your pet is properly tagged and micro-chipped in the event they become spooked during this holiday season.

Multiple rescue groups throughout Northeast open their doors
to help give dogs second chance at life

NEW YORK—The ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) today announced that 26 dogs rescued from a dog fighting operation have been placed with several animal welfare groups throughout the Northeast. Placement options for an additional seven dogs are also in the process of being finalized. The dogs, ranging from puppies to adults, were rescued in late June by the ASPCA, at the request of the NYPD Vice Enforcement Division and Bronx District Attorney’s office, from a dog fighting operation in the Bronx.

For more than two months, ASPCA responders cared for and provided the dogs with extensive socialization, a healthy diet, medical care and exercise at a temporary shelter. Each dog was carefully evaluated by a team of animal behavior professionals prior to being transferred to the rescue groups. The following groups will continue to work with each dog to address its specific needs, with the hope of eventually adopting each of them to loving homes: St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center (Madison, N.J.); Charles Henderson Animal Rescue (Brooklyn, N.Y.); Columbia Greene Humane Society (Hudson, N.Y.); and Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire (Bedford, N.H.). Some dogs have also been transferred to the ASPCA’s Adoption Center in Manhattan.

The unfortunate reality in many dog fighting operations is the propensity for a certain number of the dogs involved to exhibit extreme aggression, and therefore to be very dangerous. Sadly, this proved true in this case. While we have been able to place the majority of dogs, some of the dogs were euthanized. These particular dogs were tragic victims of the brutalities of dog fighting—bred over generations to exhibit aggression, trained to fight with lethal intent, subjected to a life of inhumane treatment, and as a result, showcased highly aggressive behavior. After extensive evaluations, the decisions to euthanize were based on recommendations of multiple behavior professionals who weighed in objectively and independently, with the best interest of each individual animal in mind.

On June 21, ASPCA responders assisted in the removal, forensic evidence collection, and on-scene documentation of 50 dogs seized from a dog fighting operation in a six-story apartment building in the Bronx. The dogs were living in crude cages in the corner room of a basement, rarely, if ever, seeing the light of day, unless they were brought outside the room to be trained or fought. The basement included a makeshift fighting arena with capacity for dozens of spectators. Also recovered from the scene were a loaded .25-caliber handgun, multiple pet carriers, U.S. currency, and paraphernalia associated with a sophisticated dog fighting operation, including dog treadmills, harnesses, muzzles, syringes, and a shopping cart full of raw chicken parts. The dogs were transferred to a temporary shelter, where they were triaged by the ASPCA’s veterinary medical team and later evaluated individually by the ASPCA’s Anti-Cruelty Behavior Team.

The superintendent of the building, Raul Sanchez of the Bronx, was arrested that day and arraigned on July 24 on the following charges: 63 counts of animal fighting (13 felony charges; 50 misdemeanor charges); six counts of aggravated animal cruelty (felony); six counts of animal cruelty (misdemeanor); and one count of criminal possession of a weapon (misdemeanor). If convicted, he faces up to four years in jail. The ASPCA’s Legal Advocacy team is also providing support to the Bronx District Attorney’s office to help prosecute this case. The next court date is scheduled for September 25.
