A Chance To Make A Difference

You have a chance to make a difference. Mr. Dennis Jones of Greenwood Pets has been charged with Animal Abandonment and Cruelty and although the offenses for which he is being charged occured last June, 2012, he still hasn’t been tried. There may be another hearing this coming week. A dying pygmy goat and two kittens were totally ignored and would have died had Animal Control Officer, Lisa Taylor, not responded to an anonymous call. This is not the first time that this man has been accused of cruelty. His case will be heard by Judge Chmura, 37th District Court, 8300 Common Rd. Warren, MI 48093 and will be prosecuted by Brian Surma, Macomb County Prosecuting Attorney, 1 S. Main, Fl. 1, Mt. Clemens, MI 48032. Please drop them a letter and let them know how you feel justice for animal cruelty. I will be also pushing to get reimbursement for the considerable amount of money 4P1H spent to save this life. Thank You ~ diana p.s. Our pygmy goat lives with a veterinarian and is doing well. ~ diana

Pygmy Goat

This pygmy goat was confiscated and signed over to an Animal Control Officer after a report was received that a local Pet Store was holding a Pygmy goat who, according to the caller,  had a urinary blockage for two days. The goat was listless and appeared to be close to death.  He was taken to the Krause Veterinary Clinic in Armada who treats goats and they confirmed that the goat had a urinary blockage and would require an operation or humane euthanasia.  The goat was only two months old and it just didn’t seem right to kill him after what he had gone through.  4 Paws 1 Heart agreed to take care of the operation with hopes that the City attorney will be able to get restitution as part of the animal cruelty judgement.  We hope that we can help with the demise of a pet store which has been on everyone’s radar for a long time. ~ diana
