This wonderful lady and her dog was going for a
walk down the street when suddenly her dog
stepped on the part of her lease with the clip,The
clip when in between the dog's toes and before she
knew it the foot was starting to swell and bleed.
She called the police of course the police did not
know what to do,(Not their fault are not trained for
this) But they did do the right thing a call the animal
ambulance. We arrived within minutes and were
able to free the dog from the excruciating pain right
there on the scene. She posed for her dog for this
picture so we can show how grateful she was.
Were happy to say that not
all dogs go directly to the
SPCA,, some of our police
departments are willing to
hold on to them for a short
Unfortunately this is not new for us, we were
called to the small town of Marcus Hook this
was a couple of years ago so we are able
okay to print it. It took over a week to
remove over 100 cats from this one home.
Once the cats was sickly with lots of
diseases and very very poor conditions as
you can see from the picture. We were told
the summary lived in this house up to the
time we got to want to go in.
This does not have to happen check on your
neighbors, Check on your neighbors cannot
be a nosy you been helpful call the
authorities if you think something Not right
Afternoon fire one of our local
neighborhoods had a two alarm fire
in the garage 10 dogs perished.
Animal control investigators and
our ambulance was called in.
We shown you these horrifying pictures
because if you see something here is
something that you don't think is right
and you can stop this from ever
happening again please report it. And if
the officer doesn't listen reported again,
and again until someone does.
This is one of our officers, educating the
public on a Red tailed hawk that was in
distress after he saved it from harm. We
always like to take the time to show the
public the nature that we come across
and explain why they should not touch it
and what they should do if they come
across the animal. Always remember a
wild animal can be dangerous.
Officer John Johnson is set up here at
Rider University to display and
giveaway samples dog food and law
