    A dog weighing 35kg was stretchered down Ben Nevis because she refused to walk any further. Maggie, a Turkish Akbash, was taken up the UK's highest peak by walkers on Saturday, but on the way back down she decided enough was enough. Despite her group trying everything to get Maggie to move, the pup refused to budge on her descent of the 1,345m peak. Maggie (pictured on a stretcher) was rescued in a five-hour operation after refusing to walk any further  The defiant pooch looked pleased to have been secured to the stretcher and brought back down Ben Nevis Suffering from sore paws and tiredness, she laid down while the three women tried to coax her back onto the trail.

    A DOG lover has told how she was forced to put down all five of her pets after she caught a rare disease from a rescue pup.

She was initially put on a "stay at home" notice due to a fear of rabies - but both her and the dog were eventually diagnosed with the rare disease two months later. Human transmission is extremely rare but the grandmother-of-two also started showing severe symptoms and remains on antibiotics. But her pooches Benson, a 13-year-old Jack Russell, Dougie, an 11-year-old Patterdale Cross, Tiny, a four-year-old Pug, and Max, nine, unknown breed,...
    The Lychee and Dog Meat “Festival” is seat to happen in the southern Chinese city of Yulin on June 21 and coincides with the summer solstice. During the annual event, festival-goers eat dog meat and lychees. The festival is a 10-days-long and first began in 2009, and thousands of dogs are reportedly consumed.

The Carla Lane Animals in Need Centre said it faces “unprecedented” demand and has a waiting list for those wanting to give up their pet. 2A pet rescue centre has had to reject unwanted dogs for the first time in 30 years after a cost of living crisis delugeCredit: Getty 2The Carla Lane Animals in Need Centre has space for 40 hounds but now has a waiting list for those wanting to give up their petsCredit: Not known, clear with picture desk The charity, based in Melling, Liverpool, has space for 40 hounds but said it is seeing the “impact of people buying dogs without realising the commitment involved and just wanting rid”.

    The owner of a not-for-profit dog rescue shelter in Northern Westchester admitted to stealing thousands of dollars earmarked for animals over the course of a year, authorities announced. Yorktown resident Lisa Marie Birdsall, age 56, the owner of Birdsall’s Recycled Paws Rescue on Main Street in Mohegan Lake in Cortlandt pleaded guilty to stealing nearly $18,000 from the not-for-profit organization.  Specifically, Birdsall pleaded guilty to fourth-degree grand larceny, a felony, and a misdemeanor count of petit larceny.

    Twenty French bulldogs have been pictured crammed in a car while their Ukrainian owner fled Russian bombs in her home outside of Kyiv - and even went back to the warzone to rescue 30 more 'defenceless animals'.   Olena Lukash, 53, from Kyiv, said she 'didn't believe a war could start' in her home country until Russian shells began to land near her house since the invasion on Ukraine began on February 24. However, the 53-year-old soon realised she would have to save her 'four-legged children' from the terrifying threat as she decided to flee her home and head for Poland. Photos show 20 of the dogs squeezed into the kennel owner's Hyundai Tucson for the four-day drive, with the pooches blissfully unaware of the terror they were escaping. Remarkably, after Olena and her husband Alexander left the dogs in Poland they then returned to their Russian-occupied town to rescue 30 more and then fled to Vinnitsa, 173 miles away from Kyiv. The war launched by Russian President Vladimir Putin ground into its fourth week as his troops have failed to...
    LODI (CBS13) — A holistic approach to healing that’s worked on humans is now being used to treat animals with behavioral issues. Pilgrim, an eight-year-old mixed breed, was found on the streets of Stockton. He had been feral for four years. Then, he was attacked by a neighborhood dog. That’s when Cruisin’ 4 Paws got the call last October.

So it’s transferred over to animals,” said Deb Phillips who runs the non-profit. Cruisin’ 4 Paws is devoted to dogs just like Pilgrim. He wouldn’t let anyone near him. “We had set up a trap, a feeding station. We were feeding him in and out of the trap,” Phillips said. “It took about two weeks for him to get very comfortable.” Once Pilgrim was in their care, Phillips realized what was going on. “Usually an outside behavior is because of an internal feeling,” she said....
    Dog abandonment is a real issue, with shelters overflowing with animals. Many abandoned dogs end up euthanized or struggling to survive on the streets. It may feel like there’s not much we can do, but even one person can make a massive impact on the life of a dog. In central Greece, three volunteer women have come together to rescue dogs from abandonment, abuse, and neglect, and they’ve formed a non-profit to do so: Diasozo Animal Rescue (DAR). When one of the rescue volunteers and founders, Ermioni, heard of a dog abandoned in a nearby cemetery, she immediately jumped into action. When she arrived at the cemetery, it took a few minutes of searching but she eventually found the dog. The poor puppy had been left for dead among the gravestones and was so weak, she was barely hanging onto life. Thankfully, Ermioni was able to get her back to safety and get her started on life-saving treatment. At the veterinarian, they discovered the pup, who they named Ann, was suffering from parvo, severe diarrhea, dehydration. She was also...

    ASKOV, Minn. (WCCO) — A rescue organization is calling a dog found in a St. Paul alleyway “a Christmas miracle.” Rosabella was locked in a metal crate during the coldest day of the year when a Ruff Start Rescue volunteer rescued her.

But this is the first time Breanna has seen a case like this one. “If she hadn’t been found that day, she would have died,” said Breanna. A picture taken on Dec. 6 shows Rosabella’s condition the day she was rescued. The temperature dipped to 4 degrees that day, and someone had locked the Pit Bull-Terrier mix outside, in a metal crate. “She was discarded like garbage. She was surrounded by garbage bags,” said Breanna. “Obviously she was emaciated and dehydrated and just on her last leg, honestly.” READ MORE: 3...

    People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) received a response from the U.S. Army on Thursday to its request for assistance with working dogs and companion animals left behind in Afghanistan.  An Army spokesperson told PETA the U.S. military “did not leave any dogs in cages” at Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul, but also was unable to help animal rescue teams evacuate “more than 150 stray Afghan dogs” due to regulations governing evacuation flights. The International Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCAI) on Tuesday blamed the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) for enacting policies that were a “terrible impediment” to rescuing dogs from Afghanistan. SPCAI said its application for an emergency exemption from the CDC’s July 14 policy suspending the import of dogs from countries at high risk for rabies was denied, even though Congress reprimanded CDC for issuing the inflexible directive.

    A Taliban commander told Russian state media on Wednesday that the new rulers of Afghanistan have plans for using the service dogs abandoned by President Joe Biden during his chaotic withdrawal from Kabul. Murad Gazdiev, a correspondent for Russia’s RT.com, said he found most of the dog cages at the Kabul airport open and empty, with only a single “very scared and evidently traumatized” stray dog in evidence. The chief Taliban officer at the Kabul airport claimed departing American soldiers let the dogs out of their cages, and the Taliban’s “Islamic Emirate” plans to catch them and make use of them: The Taliban’a commander of Kabul airport tells us US troops let their service dogs free as they evacuated.

    A Tennessee woman who owns an animal rescue center in Kabul was not allowed passage home by the Department of Defense because she carried a disabled puppy in her arms — one of 130 animals she was ordered to leave behind in the final days of airlifts. Charlotte Maxwell-Jones refused to board the plane without her puppy on Monday, so the military ordered her to leave and turn loose 130 crated dogs that mostly belonged to Americans and Afghans who evacuated, according to social media postings. This occurred even though Maxwell-Jones secured flights from non-profit organizations that had permission to land in a neutral country. She left the airport after being stuck there for six days and returned home to an uncertain fate. INSTAGRAM DELETES, REINSTATES ACCOUNT OF MOM BLASTING BIDEN OVER DEATH OF SON The Taliban visited Maxwell-Jones at home last week and ordered her to leave with her employees, she said in a tearful video posted on Twitter. She raised $703,705 on a GoFundMe page for an animal evacuation and desperately sought a landing permit. “Five minutes...
    Americans and Afghan allies weren’t the only ones apparently left behind in the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan. A non-profit organization said it was continuing to work Tuesday to help evacuate dozens of contracted military working dogs from the country, according to reports. Joshua Hosler, president of Veteran Sheepdogs of America, said the organization was given 51 working dogs with the responsibility of getting them out of Kabul. The non-profit tweeted a photo last weekend of more than a dozen dog crates in front of a helicopter, which Hosler said was just a fraction of the canines left behind in the U.S. troop withdrawal, according to TMZ.  TALIBAN TAKE CONTROL OF KABUL AIRPORT, CELEBRATE ‘ENJOYABLE MOMENT OF VICTORY’ Hosler hoped to rescue the working dogs by raising $1.67 million – the cost for a 737 plane out of Kabul, the outlet reported. Early Tuesday, the non-profit tweeted it had funds for the plane, but an animal rescue organization fell through.  "So we are scrambling to cover their amount of $500,000 of the $1.67 million," Veteran Sheepdogs of America wrote.  Meanwhile, American...

    An elderly Riverside-area couple surrendered 22 dogs that Riverside County Animal Services says were being neglected, and an animal rescue will prepare them for adoption. The dogs were discovered on June 18 by firefighters who put out a small blaze in the 16000 block of Gamble Avenue in the Woodcrest neighborhood south of Riverside. The fur on some dogs was severely matted, Animal Services said in a news release. A man who lives at the property told Animal Services that his wife used to run a kennel but that her health had declined and was no longer able to care for the dogs. The breeds include Pomeranians, Shih Tzus and terrier mixes. Wagmor Pets Dog Rescue of Studio City agreed to take in the dogs. Wagmor can be reached at 818-691-3466.

    Chinese activists from the Human Society International (HSI) intercepted and rescued 68 dogs on Friday that had reportedly been on the way to a slaughterhouse at a meat festival in the city of Yulin. Many of the dogs, which were rescued just outside of Yulin in the autonomous region of Guangxi, were reported to have been dehydrated and starving, and extended their paws towards activists from HSI, indicating that they might’ve been stolen pets, the South China Morning Post (SCMP) reported. Peter Li, a China policy analyst at the HSI explained that while the 68 dogs are now safe, thousands of other dogs in Yulin and millions of dogs across China are not as lucky, according to SCMP. “Through dog theft, illegal trans-provincial transport and inhumane slaughter, the trade not only subjects animals to suffering but also risks public health with the potential for the spread of rabies and other diseases. These are compelling reasons for the Chinese authorities to end this trade once and for all,” Li added. BREAKING YULIN RESCUE ????: 68 dogs destined for slaughter have been...
    TURNERSVILLE, N.J. (CBS) — Dog owners are reacting to proposed legislation in New Jersey that would require the owners of large dogs to have a fenced-in yard or face stiff penalties. Animal advocates say if this becomes a law, it will force owners to give up their pets. Animal advocates told Eyewitness News that this is an overreach from Trenton, and large dogs could suffer unfair consequences.
