* Fight Against Animal Abuse *

Fight Against Animal Abuse - By Ashleigh.P

I have been wanting to write about Animal Abuse since I moved here to Cape Verde Praia, If you could just see the dogs they have here, You would have a mixed feelings. I know I did. I have a lot a sympathy on these Dogs, I feel so sorry for them. There are dogs everywhere on this Island, Barely any of them are healthy, A high percentage of them Have Worms, Scabies/Mange, They are Skin and Bones, They have broken bone, They limp, I have seen a Dog here with a missing leg, and the thing that gets me the most is the Government here, Is not doing anything about it, They supposedly care about the dogs and want them to stay not to put them down. I know for a fact the Government does not care, Why?
1. These dogs are all suffering, You see dogs all over town..
2. They don't care for them, You see dogs going thru the Garbage's around town
3. No one feeds them.
This Government thinks they are helping the Dogs by keeping them alive well they're not, They are making them suffer even more.

~ Facts About Animal Cruelty ~

1. Puppy mills are large-scale commercial dog breeding operations that put
greater priority on profits than the health and well-being of the
puppies.Many dogs are plagued with illnesses or
infirmaries like kidney or heart disease, as a result of the poor
conditions they’re kept in.

2. More than 100 million animals every year suffer and die in cruel chemical, drug, food and cosmetic tests, biology lessons, etc.

3.Each year, thousands of young and healthy Greyhounds are killed because
they lack racing potential or have been injured while racing and are no
longer competitive.

4. It's been estimated that there are 900 to 2,000 new cases every year of
animal hoarding in the US, with a quarter of a million animals falling

I hate to see any Animals Suffer, Especially God's Animals.
Now I ask you What is your Opinion about Animal Abuse? What would you do to stop it?

Help me Spread the Word, This is message that needs to be spread.


My Grand, Yet Tiring day :)

Hello Everyone! How was your day? My day was grand! Why? Well lemme tell you about my day :)

I woke at 5:30 this Morning, And stayed in bed till...hmm 6:30. Got up, and went to Prayer with my dad, As always. ( I go every week day ) Then I came home and changed, Then went to the English School across the street. Now I'm sure your asking " Why did I go to the English School, When I am American?" Well to answer your question, " I am a volenteer :) I help out, And its nice to hang around younger and kids my age.
So I went there from 8-11, Then I came home, Ate some Chicken and Rice ( My Fav) and went shopping with my parents :)

So we went to the store, And they have a mall here, but nothing like the malls of the USA, of course, Its pretty simple, But it does has a theater, not that i go. lol. So we went to the mall, And right in the parking lot Me and my Mom, saw a puppy! She was sooo little, and Adroable! So I begged my Dad for a puppy, And when i said " Can I keep it?" He said Yeah. ( I was shocked to the bone!) But I didn't ask no questions, and put in the back of our truck :) So i brought her home, Gave her a bath ( 1st bath she has ever had) She didn't like it that much.. I love her so much :) She doesn't like me that much at the moment since I gave her a bath, At the moment she is sleeping :) But I feel so sorry for her.. Why?

1. She is Skin and bones
2. She was Starving and Parched
3. She had Fleas and Mange, ( She has Mits too )
4. She also had a cut on her neck, As if she used to wear a rope, She must of ran away.

Something about me,  I have pity on animals who have been mistreated, Or hurt. That is why I used to watch Animal Rescues on animal planet, At my Grandma's house :) I see them Hurting, And sick. And it makes me sad.. Know the feeling?

So If my Dad let's me keep her, I will :) If not I will feed her till she gets some meat on her bones, And wait till she is healthy, Then Release her, So it's like *Ashleigh Polaco's Animal Rescue ;) * lol

Here is a picture of her:

Comment : What should I name her?
