    Hi,

    Today i was in troble, My female doberman was not eating since last night, she stuck something in her mouth and couldnt close her mouth. I couldnt find any doc who could come home to see her coz she gave birth to 7 pupps and was not willing to leave home. I request on this site and some decent girl/women called and guide me how to find Lahore doctor , and i follow instructions and found a doctor, he came home and fixed the problem. I am very happy tht there are still people who are willing to sove others problems.

        DO NOT GO TO DR. SHEHLA (03226160876) of PET VET in Phase 2 behind the NADRA office. She has killed 11 kittens belonging to various friends that I know and she killed my 7 week old persian kitten too! I took him for a simple flea treatment and she insisted on giving him an injection too. The next morning my kitten went into a coma. I called her the next morning and her assistant Issac arrived two hours later and give the poor baby a shot of cortizone. I took him to Dr. Isma and she ran tests and told me that he had received an overdose of the WRONG injection which is not supposed to be given to kittens at such a young stage in their lives and that he shouldnt have received the cortizone shot either. I had to bring my kitten back and administer IV drips myself throughout the night to try and flush out the toxins in the blood. After 14 hours on IV drips, he passed away early the next morning. I have received several other responses from people. She killed 9 other kittens in addition to the previous 11 and one of mine that I mentioned.

    …Appeal… Ireland’s Parliament to vote on Ban Hare Coursing Bill…
    …Please ask Ireland’s Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister to support the Bill and allow a FREE VOTE!
    Two members of the Dail (Ireland’s parliament) will shortly be publishing a Bill aimed at banning the cruel practice of live hare coursing in the Republic of Ireland. Deputies Clare Daly and Maureen O’ Sullivan hope to garner enough support from other members of the Dail to secure the passage of the Bill into law.
    If they succeed, the horrific blood sport in which hares (better known as Jack Rabbits to North Americans) are used as live bait for greyhounds will become illegal and the long suffering Irish Hare will be protected from this organized cruelty.
    In Ireland, up to eighty hare coursing events are held each year. The so-called “sport” is cruel from beginning to end. Wild hares are captured by gangs roaming the countryside with nets. Some hares become injured during capture as a result of entanglement in the nets and these animals are discarded or killed.
    A coursing event involves setting pairs of greyhounds after the captured hares within the confines of a wire-enclosed field or race course. Each hare has to run towards an escape hatch at the opposite end of the venue. Though the dogs are muzzled, they can maul the hares, pin them to the ground inflicting injury, or toss them into the air like playthings. Many hares are subjected to painful injury and have to be killed as a result. The injuries include bone breakages that cannot heal and leg parts getting ripped off.
    Even hares released from captivity after a coursing event have not escaped the ordeal. Many of these succumb to a condition called Capture Myopathy, a stress-related ailment that may kill them, meaning that they literally “die of fright”, the entire unnatural experience including captivity having proved too much for them.
    As if this were not bad enough, hares are also used to “blood” greyhounds. Hares that are ill or injured are routinely fed LIVE to the dogs to enhance their performance in coursing. The aim is to give greyhounds a thirst for blood and encourage them to run faster in pursuit of the hares at the official coursing events.
    Hare coursing is illegal in Scotland, England, and Wales since 2004 and was banned in Northern Ireland in August of last year. The last Australian State to permit it was South Australia, which outlawed the practice in 1985.
    We are appealing to anyone who cares about the protection of animals, in the Republic of Ireland, or elsewhere in the world, to send a brief message to the two most powerful politicians in Ireland, the Prime Minister (Taoiseach in Irish), and Deputy Prime Minister (Tanaiste in Irish), asking them to allow a FREE VOTE in parliament on the forthcoming Bill to ban hare coursing and to set an example by supporting the Bill themselves.
    It is essential that all members of parliament are allowed to vote in accordance with their consciences or the Bill cannot be passed. Pro hare coursing politicians are pressing for members of parliament to be “whipped” by their respective parties into rejecting the proposed hare coursing ban.
    The Prime Minister Enda Kenny and Deputy Prime Minister Eamon Gilmore are also leaders of the two largest political parties in Ireland. They can determine the success or failure of the Bill.
    The Bill is expected to be voted upon by July.
    Even a very short message will suffice, simply requesting that all members of the Irish parliament will be permitted to support the anti hare coursing Bill if they so wish.
    We suggest that you write to, or email Mr. Kenny with a copy of your message to Mr. Gilmore.
    Their contact details are as follows:
    An Taoiseach (Irish Prime Minister) Enda Kenny
    Department of the Taoiseach,
    Government Buildings,
    Upper Merrion Street,
    Dublin 2 , Republic of Ireland
    Email: taoiseach@taoiseach.gov.ie
    An Tanaiste, (Deputy Prime Minister)
    Eamon Gilmore

    Iveagh House,
    80 St. Stephen’s Green,
    Dublin 2, Republic of Ireland.
    Email: eamon.gilmore@oireachtas.ie
    We would appreciate if you would pass this appeal to other like-minded people/animal protection groups.

    Hi Everyone!

    I am really happy to see such community growing (specially in our cruel country).
    I have rescued countless cats/kitties, birds and a dog as well.

    But i need your help this time, I have 5 pigeons (ordinary high flying, nothing special about them) I want someone to adopt them. Who can care properly for them and won’t eat or sale out them, i really have no place to keep them and neither time for them, plus all the cats around them.

    So please if you guys know someone who can care for them or anyone who can keep them, please do let me know. You can contact me on 0343-4661542

    Believe me i will be grateful to you my whole life. And forgot to mention I am in Lahore, even if anyone is nearby in any city I can try to deliver them.

    Thanks
