Starving Dogs – Neglected, Saved From Owner, Now Set To Die, Tomorrow
Eight Dogs Were Rescued From A Home After Authorities Received A Tip About The Poor Living Conditions
Eight Dogs were confiscated from a home after authorities in the area responded to a tip about poor living conditions.
Officials were greeted by a Heartwrenching Situation – Dogs, Crammed into Inadequate kennels, living in their own waste, and starving.
One dog was so emaciated that he had to be euthanized – the other, all skeletal, were taken to the Mobile County Animal Shelter.
Though the shelter sent out a plea for foster homes to area residents – only two dogs were rescued.
The others? “No interest”.
Dogs who have spent their entire lives enduring a pitiful existence generated no compassionate interest locally and now, they are facing death.
On Thursday, 8 September 2011, if no rescue steps forward, the surviving dogs – dogs who have never known kindness or compassion – will be killed.
Dogs that were treated so horribly that their owner, Cheyenne Earl Owens, 44, was sent to jail on 8 counts of animal cruelty.

About The Mobile County Animal Shelter
The Mobile County Animal Shelter is required by the State of Alabama to enforce animal control laws. These laws are designed to protect the public’s health, safety and welfare. They also are intended to minimize the suffering of unwanted animals that have been abandoned and have no source of food or medical care.
At the same time, the shelter seeks to promote the adoptions of unwanted animals and to provide the highest level of care for those in its custody. Its shelter at 7665 Howell’s Ferry Road provides segregated kennels to accommodate stray dogs on 7-day hold, dogs that are quarantined due to illness or bites, and adoptable dogs. It also provides a separate area for cats.
In addition to control and adoptions of unwanted animals, the Mobile County Animal Shelter is charged with investigation of animal cruelty and dog bite cases.
