Patrick Life is Spared! Death Was So Close For An Abandoned Dog

Poor Patrick Found in A Trash Bin

The depths to which human depravity can sink, as illustrated by this story and gutwrenching pictures can shock even those of us who have seen the worst of the worst.

The misery, pain and callousness inflicted by humans is more than can be understood by most people. It's accepted that many people do not like animals or dogs or pit bulls in particular. However, the heartless manner in which a dying animal is tossed away like garbage is not only reprehensible but the increase that we have seen indicates a downward spiral of compassion, moral fiber and ethics. The 22 story apartment building is equipped with garbage chutes on each floor for tenants.

Someone had no more use for this dog. They had starved it to near death, put it in a garbage bag and threw it down the garbage chute. A maintenance worker cleans out the bin every few days and on Wednesday, March 16th, they were cleaning out the contents of the container to go directly into a trash compacter. The bag moved a little and the worker opened it to find a moribund dog inside -- pathetically thin, cold and near death.

Stray Dogs In Japan in Need of Assistance!

Dog in Japan stays by the side of ailing friend in the rubble

It's a universal truth that dogs are man's best friend, but they're pretty darn loyal to their own as well. Case in point: this tear-inducing video, via the website Jezebel, showing a dog, shivering and disoriented, remaining loyally by the side of a stricken fellow canine amid the devastation of the Japanese tsunami.

Global Pets In Need Org...Help a few Pets homeless in Japan

The video is a stark reminder that, as was the case when Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast in 2005, there will likely be thousands of pets orphaned or involuntarily abandoned due to the catastrophe in Japan. If you'd like to help efforts to help these animals, you can find info on doing so here.

UPDATE: CNN and the UK Telegraph have both reported that the dogs have been rescued since the footage aired, and are both receiving veterinary care; the more seriously wounded dog is at a clinic in the city of Mito, while the protective spaniel-type dog is receiving care at a shelter in the same town.

Jaco & Quepos Costa Rica Stray Dogs...Help Out The Less Fortunate!

Costa Rica Vacation and Stray Dogs

I recently returned from another great trip to Costa Rica and plenty of fun! With all that fun came a few unpleasant surprises, that being of how many stray dogs I encountered roaming the streets of Jaco and Manuel Antonio Costa Rica.

Stray dogs are nothing new to most people but in an area where they roam all over, many have been hit from all the crazy drivers, this makes these strays some of the toughest I've ever encountered.
