Please sign this petition and expedite its circulation far and wide. 

TIME IS SHORT: a preliminary hearing will be held on MARCH 15. 

In a most cruel, bizarre and inconceivable method, a dog owner has been charged with extreme animal cruelty as he tried in a most heinous way to neuter his dog.  By the time the blind dog was located on the property, he was cowering in a bedroom unable to move. He was taken to the vet who advised authorities that additional and serious injuries were discovered clearly indicating beatings and torture. This petition complete with signatures will be presented to the trial judge prior to sentencing by our representatives in the New Mexico area.  The more signatures obtained, the stronger the motivation upon the DA, and ultimately the judge to fine Mr. Dickey the maximum penalty of $5,000 as well as prosecute and convict him to the maximum sentence.

As a brief recap; according to New Mexico news sources, 22 year old James Dickey has been cited for extreme animal cruelty when he (allegedly) burned his dog’s testicles. Charlie, formerly known as Angel, suffered severe torture and abuse when his owner (allegedly) tried to neuter him by setting his scrotum and testicles on fire. The accused, a resident of Rio Rancho Township in Albuquerque, New Mexico, was arrested and booked into the Sandoval County Detention Center on Jan. 31. He is currently out on bond. 
The criminal complaint alleges that Dickey repeatedly tortured his dog, a shepherd named Charlie (Angel), on Jan. 23. The Rio Rancho Police Department’s was notified by a neighbor who saw Dickey grab the cataract-blinded dog by his hind legs and drop-kick the dog several times and kick him into a yucca plant.  The dog’s testicles had been burned, according to the complaint. Dickey%u2019s %u201Creason%u201D was because he could not afford to have the dog neutered by a veterinarian. Of little surprise, Dickey denied abusing his dog when questioned by authorities. The abused dog was not returned to the man that is accused of beating and burning him. He has been placed with a new family. Animal Control continues to receive updates on his progress.  Dickey faces charges of animal cruelty – a fourth degree felony which could put him behind bars for a meager 18 months. Charlie continues to be treated by a veterinarian for his injuries, and is doing well.

You are encouraged to politely write to Rio Rancho%u2019s governing officials asking for justice on behalf of Charlie.  They can be contacted via e-mail through the following link:

China: Very Important Petition – Keep the Gui Zhen Tang Pharmaceutical Corporation – Bear Bile Producers; OFF The Stock Exchange. Please Sign and Crosspost !

Important Petition – Bear Bile Farming Does NOT Belong in This Day and Age –

Please Sign and Crosspost:  Keep Animal Abusers Out of the Stock Exchange !


In China, bears are farmed for their bile, which is used in traditional Chinese medicine. The bears are housed in coffin-size cages and the bile is extracted through a tube implanted in their gall bladders.

Tell the China’s Shenzhen Stock Exchange not to condone animal cruelty. »

Bears farmed for their bile suffer immensely, Many get infections and liver cancer, and they typically only live 5 years compared with 25 years in the wild.

Now, the Gui Zhen Tang Pharmaceutical Corporation, which produces bear bile, wants inclusion in the Shenzheng Stock Exchange. Allowing this company into the stock exchange will send a message that bear bile farming is okay: We can’t let that happen.

Urge the Shenzhen Stock Exchange not to allow the Gui Zhen Tang Pharmaceutical Corporation into their exchange. »

Well we now have some great photos of the dogs since they have arrived safe and sound in Austria and Hungary.

Chrissy (Romania Animal Aid – London) who was involved with the rescues has sent the pictures and the following message:

Hi guys,

Here are some pix of the 20 adult dogs and 13 pups that we rescued from the deserted house in Ploiesti arriving in Hungary and Austria.

They are all doing really well, even the timid ones are now coming round. 

They will each be put of for adoption via ACA once they have had full health checks and a bit more socialisation etc.

Happy Sunday!

A great result so far, but the closing chapter will be when all the animals are homed safely with people around Europe.  Can you help here ?

If you can then please e mail Chrissy at  giving details of what you are able to do to help.

Further updates will follow when we move into the final stages of what is a great rescue story.
