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.
