Dog poisoned with two-step

Location: De Doorns
Crime Date: 18 April 2014
Reported Date: 28 April 2014

Dog poisoned with two-step

I recently visited a farm in the Montague/De Doorns area where the farmer is blatantly using carbamates (Temik or Two-step as it is known) to poison animals that are catching his sheep. Unfortunately my dalmatian dog also succumbed to carbamate poisoning on the farm after accidentally ingesting some poison. Carbamates have been taken off the market completely and this farmer is clearly buying it on the "black market". It is also highly illegal to set poison on a farm as per the Animal Protection Act. The farmer's name is Hennie de Kock on the farm Sandvlei. Do not go there.

Jenny in Brakpan - dog breeder

Jenny in Brakpan - dog breeder

We experienced the same thing as the following person:, with this woman and I whole heartedly regret ever having met her. She told me her name was Jenny, and the more and more I think about the whole situation the dodgier it becomes for me.

I found her online on Tuesday 11th February 2014 and called her to inquire about a worsie puppy, to which she told me she only had 1 little boy of 8 weeks old left. Being as desperate and excited as I was to get a puppy and find a little brother for my current Basset Hound boy who was/is lonely, I jumped at the opportunity to fetch him the same evening.

He appeared to be healthy and she provided me with his vaccination certificate. We paid R600 for him and left (we didn't meet her at her house either, she told us to meet her at a place called "Yankees" as the address of  1 Olimpa Road, Brakpan, Boksburg, Johannesburg took us to the "wrong" house).

On Friday 14th February he started vomiting and wouldn't eat or drink anything so we took him to the vet where they alerted us that he had worms, a tummy infection and a fever. I messaged this horrid woman immediately to let her know that our pup was sick to which she merely replied with "I'm sorry".

On the Saturday 15th February he got worse, and at around midnight we had to rush him to the Bryanston Vet Hospital. He had contracted a virus called Parvovirus which eats away at the tummy lining in puppies if they haven't been vaccinated/vaccinated correctly. There's no cure or treatment for this except to put them on a drip to replenish lost nutrients and nourishment of some kind.

We left him at the hospital where they put him on a drip, and hoped for the best. At 4am on Sunday 16th February the vet phoned us to say that our little boy didn't make it :( When I tried to contact her on Monday 17th February she wouldn't answer my calls. Only when I tried from an unknown number did she answer, and was quite unapologetic as well!

I know we shouldn't support any back yard breeders and follow the correct practice and for that I do blame myself and am sorry about what happened, but in the same regard this woman is disgusting - particularly seeing more people with the same/similar experience to ours. I hope that she's found, caught and arrested for a very long time so she can't do this to any more of these precious animals.

Dog Reportedly Died negligently - SPCA Covers Up

Dog Reportedly Died negligently - SPCA Covers Up

A healthy and well loved Yorkshire Terrier was wrongfully taken from Kohen & Sam Moodley in the West Rand, because of a baseless claim that they were mistreating by one disgruntled malicious neighbour. When the Moodleys tried to present evidence to prove that they in fact were excellent caregivers with mutiple photos, witness and testimony - the SPCA in Roodepoort denied them any fair procedure. When they made several attempts to find out about the wellbeing of Willow, they were refused this information at every turn. We learned on Tuesday by 3 witnesses that Willow died from Parva Disease. One Witness who saw willow could see how ill she was and this could have been prevented. When the Moodleys confronted the SPCA about the death of Willow, the SPCA said that Willow was alive, but when asked to prove this they refused. There is a massive cover up, and the culprits must be held accountable. THere is a mountain of evidence & witness to corroborate this story.

Puppy Dogs Abandoned In Scrapyard

Reported Date: 7 February 2014

Puppy Dogs Abandoned In Scrapyard

When entering the scrap yard i saw 5 maybe more puppies were severely undernourished. These beautiful dogs look terrible and i'm sure are starving. They are so thin. These dogs were put on the property by the owner to protect the property which i can understand but he can at least look after the poor little things. I did not see any food or water so i'm very worried and concerned about them. The owner leaves the dogs alone for days at a time without even opening the doors. Please please go have a look and remove the dogs. They shouldn't be treated like that! Its SICK!

Dog tied to car, dragged 2km

Dog tied to car, dragged 2km

Durban - A terrified dog, chained to a towing bracket of a car and dragged for at least 2km along a road in Chatsworth on Monday, had its skin torn off before someone managed to stop the driver.

“At first I could not believe my eyes. I saw the dog bouncing like a ball on the tarmac and being dragged along,” said off-duty paramedic Vinod Dhanpal, who came to the dog’s rescue and alerted the SPCA and police, who arrested the driver.

The dog was later put down due to the severity of the injuries.

Dhanpal, of Crossmoor, Chatsworth, said he was driving along Bilberry Avenue and was about to turn right into High Terrace Road when he saw a dog tied to the back of a car that passed him.

He followed the car and began hooting to attract the driver’s attention, even overtaking it to try and force the driver to stop, which he eventually did.

“I approached the driver’s window, reached for the ignition and switched the car off,” Dhanpal said.

He said he was horrified to see that a short chain had been tied around the dog’s neck and hooked onto the car’s bumper.

Dhanpal unhooked the chain and carried the dog to a shady area on the side of the road. He said the dog was bleeding from several wounds on its body and its skin was sheared off in places.

“I gave the dog some water,” he said, adding that judging by its injuries it was in a lot of pain.

“I called the police and SPCA. They arrived promptly. The SPCA took the dog.”

Dhanpal said he drove back along the car’s route to try to establish how far the dog had been dragged. He said he saw bloodstains for about 2km and took pictures of this.

A pet lover and owner of two dogs – cross German shepherds – as well as fishes and birds, Dhanpal said the incident had left him quite emotional, although he had encountered many gory scenes as a paramedic for 23 years.

“If it was his own child would he have done that? The dog was in immense pain and defecated continuously,” he said.

Dhanpal said he did not know whose dog it was.

A 58-year-old man has been arrested and charged in terms of the Animals Protection Act and was due to appear in the Chatsworth Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday, said police spokesman, Captain Thulani Zwane.

Nish Ramsamy, an inspector with the Durban and Coast SPCA, said he was called by SAPS and he found the severely injured, medium sized, cross-breed dog.

“The skin on its paws, tummy, side and legs had come off and it was bleeding. The dog was in shock.”

Ramsamy rushed back to the SPCA in Springfield Park but, because of the severity of its injuries, the dog had to be euthanised.

“I’ve seen a lot of cruelty to animals but I’ve never seen something like this.”

Ramsamy said the driver had said he was not aware that the dog was behind the car.

Inhumane Activity

Location: Anmanzimtoti
Crime Date: 8 January 2014
Reported Date: 23 January 2014

Inhumane Activity

Firstly the manager or whoever authorized to put my dog to sleep are inhumane. I had given my Dog in for adoption on Monday (20/01/2014), the only reason why I gave him to the SPCA is because my current landlords did not allow dogs on their premises hence the reason for me giving him to the SPCA. I assumed they would find a decent home for him. I’ve taken good care for him all along and it was beyond my control that is why I gave him up for adoption. This morning someone at work told me that they will put him down should no one adopt him, I then went in this afternoon (22/01/2014) only to find out that these inhumane people had put him down. And their reasoning is that he seemed aggressive and I said to them that he does not bite and is very friendly which I've clearly stated on the documentation, He is a Staffie x Jack Russell. The annoying/stubborn manager says that he was scratching on the gate!!!! Any dog would react in such a manner because they are in a cage/confined space. YOU PUT A DOG DOWN BASED ON HIM SCRATCHING A GATE. PEOPLE SHOULD NOT BE FOOLED BY THEM. THESE PEOPLE GET PAID TO DO WHAT THEY ARE DOING. AND TO THINK THAT I WAS GOING TO DONATE MONIES EVERY MONTH AS WELL AS VOLUNTEER AT THE SPCA. I WILL NEVER EVER RESPECT THOSE PEOPLE NOR WILL I BE PART OF ANY INHUMANE ACTIVITY. I DID NOT ASK FOR MY DOG TO BE KILLED, I GAVE HIM UP FOR ADOPTION. IS IT BECAUSE HE IS NOT A THOROUGHBRED?? IS IT BECAUSE THEY DID NOT LIKE HIM? YOU DO NOT KILL GODS CREATION FOR NO APPARENT REASON. To me this is as good as murder, he did not harm anyone nor was he sickly or had any diseases. HOW CAN SOMEONE KILL A NORMAL HEALTHY DOG. THAT IS INHUMANE AND BELIEVE ME, I AM GOING TO EXPOSE THESE PEOPLE TO EVERYONE POSSIBLE.
