Kelly Clarkson is so into music! That's how she's so good at what she does!

She's also so so so into animals! So imagine the kind of good she can spread to our furry friends!

If you're a stray pet in Nashville, Tennessee, you're not in a very good position.

Being a stray is never easy, but in Nashville, there's a 76% kill rate at their shelters!

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadPetsDog


Well, this is very strange.

Shelia Stadler was very close with her guide dog. So close that before Shelia passed away from cancer, she requested her dog Toffee be euthanized and buried alongside her.

Here's what a person from the local animal hospital had to say:

Deer Jumps Through DC Library Window

Filed under: Sad SadDeerCrazzzzy

We have no idea why but every once in a while, a deer will come crashing through a storefront window.

Maybe they see a reflection or they think it's water or something totally different.

All we know is it must be terrifying for both the deer and the people inside.

Usually animal control comes and removes the deer back to the wild but this time the deer was freaking out.

So they had to sedate than euthanize it.

So sad, poor deer.

Horrendous! German Shepherd's Face Blown Off By Firecracker

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadDogAnimal CrueltyGerman Shepherd

vucko dog face blown off by firecracker

This is incredibly sad and disturbing.

Last month, two drunken teenagers in Bosnia duct-taped a firework to a German Shepherd named Vucko and blew off his face. Horrible.

Poor Vucko wandered the streets for five days after the incident, in agony and unable to eat anything.

Authorities finally picked him up and brought him to a veterinarian's office, but unfortunately he had to be euthanized when vets couldn't perform reconstructive surgery.

As a result of this tragedy, care2 advocacy website has started a petition to urge "Bosnian authorities to hunt down the guilty parties, expose the severity of animal abuse, and create proper legislation that will protect animals."

So very, very sad. We truly hope that justice is served, and measures are taken to stop animal cruelty in Bosnia, and all over the world.

Rest in Peace, Vucko.

Navajo Nation's Dog Overpopulation Leads To Increasing Attacks

Filed under: Sad SadDog

New Vicious Dog Ordinance

The Navajo Nation, which stretches across Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah, has an estimated 445,000 stray dogs.

The growing problem with Navajo dogs is that they are becoming so overpopulated, they are left to fend for themselves, fighting for food and becoming aggressive with other animals and people.

In New Mexico, a 55-year-old man was found lying on the side of the road with a pack of dogs mauling him. Emergency workers chased the dogs away, but the pack, with their ribs sticking out, kept circling around them.

Wildlife and animal control manager Kevin Gleason says:

"They kill everything. Cats, dogs, cattle, sheep, horses. We've also had people severely injured by them. We've had people with horrendous bites. We just had a case … where a man lost 37 sheep to a pack of dogs.

We have that going on all the time. Our officers respond to more than 25 bite cases a month, and 25 livestock damage cases a month.

You look at the Sundance area where that gentleman was killed, we went in and removed 79 dogs after that and it looked like we never touched it."

The saddest part is that animal control just can't deal with the huge number of daily cases.

Dogs are found roaming along highways, restaurants, gas stations, parking lots, or wherever they may find food. Just between last October and April, 2,332 dogs were picked up. Only 79 were adopted and 313 were released back to their owners. The rest were unfortunately euthanized.

Spokesman for Best Friends Animal Society John Polis says that outsiders come into the tribal areas and "step on toes." He adds:

"A lot of people think they should round them up and take them off. But a lot of them are people's pets. Sometimes people take a dog and we tell them you are stealing."

Meanwhile, Lakota Animal Care Project's Virginia Ravndal says:

"We don't have a big problem with (attacks on people) although we do occasionally have dogs that are hungry and will pack up and kill young livestock. Probably a bigger issue for us is disease, starvation and freezing. Mange is a huge problem. And going into South Dakota winters without hair, a lot of dogs don't make it.

Animals are our relations and no one should go hungry, no one should go cold, no one should be sick."

We agree 100%. These animals deserve a second chance. As well as the Navajo Nation, which deserves to have more programs to help with overpopulation and socializing the "Rez Dogs."
