This 4 year old spayed rottie girl is sitting in Animal Care and Control of NYC (Manhattan shelter). Her days there are numbered. Rescue is full - there's no more room to bring her in. Here's what the volunteers have to say: "Betsy is a nice gal. She is friendly, walks briskly and totally minds her own business with other dogs. She is housetrained. Her coat has a silvery reflection. She also knows simple commands. She is a little overfed or may not have received the exercise a dog her age needs (she's 4 years old). She appears healthy otherwise. A very good and solid dog. She is good with other dogs and has no resource/food guarding issues." The shelter can tell you no more about this dog, but if you're interested in her and are willing to drive to Manhattan, please ask for her as A736216. Directions

Rewards Program [is] No Reward for Dogfighters
Reprint from the Humane Society of the United States
By Ariana Huemer, a cruelty caseworker for The HSUS
November 2, 2007
Dogfighters haven't gotten any free passes since the Michael Vick-inspired public backlash against dogfighting, but now they'll have an even harder time perpetuating cruelty to dogs.
An army of attorneys general, legislators and other high-ranking elected officials is amassing to support and promote The HSUS's new $5,000 reward program, aimed at bringing illegal animal fighting to an end.
Leading the Charge
South Carolina Attorney General Henry McMaster, a long-time champion for animal protection, is one of these champions for animals. Among his other achievements, McMaster prosecuted and obtained a record 40-year prison sentence for notorious dogfighting ringleader David Tant in 2005. McMaster also teamed up with The HSUS to record a public service announcement (PSA) announcing The HSUS's newly increased $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of any illegal animal fighter.
Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal also recorded a PSA for The HSUS's animal fighting reward program. And he launched a new animal-fighting hotline for Connecticut residents to report illegal animal fighting activities.
Ohio Attorney General Marc Dann launched his own efforts against illegal animal fighting with a PSA.
And Delaware Congressman Mike Castle recorded a PSA to help publicize The HSUS' animal fighting reward program.
The HSUS's animal fighting rewards program is not new. For many years, the standing reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of illegal animal fighters was $2,500.
But a generous donation from the Ware Foundation and an influx of member support for our animal fighting program supplied the necessary resources to double this reward to $5,000providing a considerable incentive for dogfighters on the fence to get out of the bloodsport, and ensure that others do, too.
What You Can Do
For the Love of Dog works with local animal control and enfocement entities to assist with the bully breeds as space allows. Consider fostering one of these dogs to allow us to further help with them. For the Love of Dog will not take a dog and allow it to languish in a boarding kennel for months on end. The average foster timeframe for bully breeds is 4 months.
For the Love of Dog is a New Hampshire corporation and a registered charity in New Hampshire operating under the federal tax exempt status of 501c3.

Since 1998, I have been taking dogs from the Center for Animal Care & Control in New York City. In 2005, we moved 25 dogs into permanent homes from the city. In 2006, we moved 52 dogs into permanent homes from the city. The NYCACC takes in all stray and city impound dogs as well as owner turn ins and averages 3000 animals a month. Owners are allowed 72 hours to reclaim their dog, or the dog becomes available for adoption or may be euthanized. To get these dogs to safety, we need to move them to boarding space. DISCOUNTED boarding space in New York is $25/day. That gets expensive quickly and we need HELP with it.
Manhattan Mutts are is in need of help for the following dogs that will be brought in THIS WEEK: Clark, Tina, Tanya, Jarrett & Kerri.
~We take several dogs every week. Your continued support is needed. ~
