Save Anzlo and Alice!

The Greater Derry Humane Society is currently engaged in a legal fight to keep two beautiful dogs,  Anzlo and Alice. They have been in GDHS's care for the last two years, after being seized from a house in Derry for cruelty and negligence charges.  They were both full of fleas, worms and both had skin issues.  Anzlo had no fur at all on his tail and near his tail, and Alice had long-untreated infected ears, urine burns on her rump and back legs.

Two years later, their owner was not convicted because of non-reparable incompetence. The law states that the animals have to go back to her unless she is convicted. She wasn't convicted because she is incompetent. Some loophole!!! Look at where they were living.

She wants them back after two years and the court just said she could have them back because of this loophole in the law!  We have asked for a hearing and another judge will hear our reasons for not giving them back.  Legal fees are expensive and since w
e rely on donations to survive, we are asking for donations of any amount to help us fight to keep these two from going back to a potentially horrible situation.   PLEASE  HELP THEM STAY WHERE THEY ARE -  HEALTHY AND HAPPY BY DONATING!

UPDATE: We won the preliminary injunction in Superior Court and the dogs stay where they are for now - happy and safe - until a trial.  This is GROUNDBREAKING for animal rights. Our judge acknowledged that animals are not like other pieces of property! They need to be cared for to exist - unlike a piece of furniture or a car or anything else considered property.  In case you don't know, NH considers an animal as a piece of property. We hope and pray that we may be changing the attitudes of our lawmakers. The next step? The Court has scheduled a scheduling hearing for the lawyers in late February and then we go to trial, probably sometime in May. If you haven't donated yet, please donate any amount to help us pay our legal fees. We refuse to give up on these two beautiful dogs, one of which is a senior girl who deserves to be spoiled for the rest of her life, and the other is an adult dog whose remaining years should be spent with a full belly and lots of ball games. 

The Greater Derry Humane Society is a small, 100% volunteer foster based rescue organization.  We help pets of all ages, including senior pets who
are often overlooked.  We are a 501(c)(3) organization and donations are tax deductible.

Little Alice went to the vet the other day, and it was discovered that her kidney levels were high and that she had Lyme disease. Treating her for Lyme now, and hoping that treatment brings down her kidney levels.

We are going to trial in July. Upsetting that this has gone on for so long...upsetting to think that they may go back to eventually living the way they were found.

Does it seem fair that we should absorb all of the cost for these two dogs for over two years and the owner pays nothing? The tax-payers are the ones who lose out in many of these situations because they are the ones who end up paying the bills. Of course, it doesn't seem fair to send these two dogs back to the situation they came from. The psychologist's ruled that the owner doesn't understand her condition and she would most likely start hoarding animals again.

Alice went to the vet today for a checkup. For 16-years-old she is in great health! Most of her previous health issues have gone away since she has been in foster care. She gets a home cooked diet because her belly gets upset easily. Her ears and urinary tract are clear and uninfected. Her hind leg muscles are strong. Blood test results will be in tomorrow.
