German shepherd found with his mouth duct-taped shut on Montauk Highway;
$2,000 also being offered by Suffolk County SPCA

NEW YORK—The ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) today announced that it will offer a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in the case of a German shepherd found abandoned with his mouth duct-taped shut on the side of a Long Island, New York highway. This reward is in addition to the $2,000 being offered by the Suffolk County SPCA, which is leading the investigation.    

According to Suffolk County SPCA reports, the German shepherd was discovered on Saturday, April 9, on Montauk Highway in Lindenhurst. The dog’s muzzle had been duct-taped shut, preventing him from breathing, eating or drinking properly. The 2- or 3-year-old male dog is currently being cared for by the Babylon Animal Shelter of West Babylon, New York.

“This is a truly sickening case of animal cruelty, and the heartlessness demonstrated by those responsible is shocking,” said Howard Lawrence, vice president of ASPCA Humane Law Enforcement. “While our ultimate hope is that these types of heinous acts never occur, this reward sends a message that animal cruelty will not be tolerated in our society. We thank the Suffolk County SPCA for its commitment to finding justice for this dog.”  

"To leave this dog unable to eat or drink, abandoned and frightened on a busy road is heartbreaking," said Roy Gross, chief of the Suffolk County SPCA.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact the Suffolk County SPCA by calling 631-382-7722. All calls will be kept confidential.

The ASPCA encourages the public to be vigilant when it comes to reporting suspected animal abuse, and to contact the appropriate authorities that are responsible for investigating and enforcing the anti-cruelty laws in their area.

Harley, the tiny one-eyed "Hero Dog", the inspirational force who saved hundreds of puppy mill dogs with National Mill Dog Rescue, and the dog who became the face of puppy mill issues worldwide, sadly passed away on March 20th.

Harley spent the first 10 years of his life in a cramped, miserable cage in a commercial breeding facility (aka puppy mill), losing his eye somewhere along the way when his cage was cleaned with a power washer ... while he was still inside. At 10 years old he was used up. No longer able to father puppies, very ill and on the verge of death, he was thrown into a bucket to die but was saved by a compassionate worker. Through a series of circumstances, he was rescued and then adopted five years ago by Rudi and Dan Taylor. Soon thereafter, he began his mission to tell the world about puppy mills.According to National Mill Dog Rescue founder Theresa Strader, "Harley was a truly remarkable little dog. He personified the forgiving and resilient spirit that we all love so much about dogs. He fought a host of medical conditions like a champion, allowing him to enjoy years of comfort and happiness. With great courage, he shed the horrors of his dreadful past to become a beloved member of the Taylor family. He was a fighter in every sense of the word until his very last day, when he gracefully let go to make his journey to the Bridge."In the months following Harley's adoption as he kept beating all the odds, Rudi and Dan began to see something extra special in the spirit of this little dog. Something that told them his life had a bigger purpose and that it was no accident he had made his way to their loving home. Rudi created a Facebook page for Harley, not only to share his remarkable story of redemption but to channel Harley's steadfast spirit as an educational tool to share the truth about the commercial dog breeding industry."Harley's page gained popularity quickly as people were eager to learn. Harley's precious face and candid truths mixed with a wonderful sense of humor kept people enlightened and engaged. What better way to tell the story of a puppy mill survivor than through his own eye? Harley now had a mission of his very own and the success of his mission was being heard around the world!
Soon after, another very special mission was created to further his awareness campaign while also helping raise funds to provide care for fellow puppy mill survivors. "Harley to the Rescue" became a twice yearly event where Harley and his best buddy Teddy, along with their humans, accompanied NMDR's rescue team on their biggest rescues of the year. "Dogs saving Dogs" became their tagline and the success of spreading further awareness and raising funds to provide vet care, was incredibly successful. Having the boys along with us was just so special. When I think of an empty spot on the bench seat next to Teddy, it's hard to hold back the tears...."Reflecting on the legacy of Harley, I am flooded with a hundred memories, precious moments in time where Harley was changing minds and touching hearts before our eyes. When I think of the tens of thousands of people he educated and the incredibly generous support his mission brought to NMDR, I am humbled. I am so very grateful to Rudi and Dan Taylor for your love, support, ideas and courage and above all, for sharing Harley and his truly remarkable life with all of us. People across the globe are grieving along with you, but we are each better people for having known your little, old, one-eyed Chihuahua who in his own very special way, changed the world!""This little one-eyed tiny dog was known worldwide. Harley inspired hope and confidence in people of all ages and in all walks of life who were able to relate to his less-than-perfect appearance and his approachable, down-to-earth nature. He was featured on the cover of popular magazines and on television and radio, and was considered a social media sensation. His legacy will live on.About National Mill Dog Rescue:
National Mill Dog Rescue is a Colorado Springs based 501(c)(3) organization that rescues, rehabilitates, and re-homes discarded commercial breeding dogs from puppy mills. NMDR relies on volunteers to care for the dogs, from the moment they are surrendered to the time they are adopted and beyond. The organization depends on the generosity of the public to provide the high level of care for our dogs and to continue to be able to save them.Harley's website: http://harleypuppymilldog.com/

SMITHTOWN, NY – (March 1, 2016) – In 2011, a young puppy was rescued from the streets of Kabul, Afghanistan. The young dog, Marley, lived in the horrors of war before being rescued by United States Army Veteran Jonathan Jones. Now, Jones is fighting the Bay County Courts to save his dog’s life against a cruel injustice. He has been sentenced to death for a natural reaction, and one that Jones feels does not warrant such a harsh reaction.

“Back in 2011, our colleagues Nowzad Dogs in Afghanistan went to great lengths to get Marley safely to the United States,” explains Robert Misseri, president of Guardians of Rescue. “Marley has lived with the Jones family and played with the children for almost five years. Now, after everything Marley has been through, to have the dog awaiting a death sentence for a natural response is unfair and we are determined to help justice prevail.”

The incident occurred when Marley bit Jones’ 15 year old son who was wearing a mask while playing cops and robbers with his 5 year old brother. Marley was only protecting the younger boy from what he thought was a threat. Unfortunately, neighbors called animal control before learning the facts.

The Bay County Magistrate ruled in Marley’s favor, but the County Attorney is appealing the case for a death sentence. Marley has been in a glass chamber on death row in Bay County, Florida for almost five months now. The hearing is scheduled for Thursday, March 3, 2016.

“Marley’s family just wants justice in this case and to bring their dog back home where he belongs,” affirms Misseri. “He is more than a dog…he’s family. Guardians of Rescue will do all that they can to help free Marley and we ask that everyone join us and do the same.”
