Well, the press has certainly taken notice of a horrible situation, and I only hope the media attention will lead to some serious action.

Please note the links to several humane rescue organizations at the bottom of the article, and, if you can help in any way, please do!

Island Dog Inc.: http://www.islanddog.org/

Save a Sato: http://www.saveasato.org/

Amigos de Animales: http://www.amigosdelosanimalespr.org/

I had to force myself to get through the entire article. It was horrifying and extremely depressing.
I just donated to Island Dog, but it's hard to believe that it will help much with the situation as bad as it is...

that's so awesome that you donated!!!  don't think it won't make a difference - what's that quote?  "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has" – Margaret Mead.  Thanks so much for taking the time to read and offer support.  Truly, thank you!!

i indirectly "know" the woman who started amigos de animales and she says they've had an outpouring of support - everything from letters of encouragement to small donations to multi-thousand-dollar donations.  in a tough situation like this, i know any and all support is appreciated.  this is a fight to implement change and it's warming to know people care enough to help out.
