British Dog Shelter Torched

British Dog Shelter Torched

Tons of food, beds and blankets have been donated for the surviving aninmals of an arson attack that tore through one of Britain’s largest dog homes killed 53 animals Wednesday night.

Aerial pictures show the extent of the damage caused after a 14yo boy allegedly set fire to Manchester Dogs’ Home.

Local Brits have given generously, with pet-lovers donating over £870,000 in the hours after the blaze.

Amid the yelping of panic stricken dogs, 30 firefighters battled the blaze, which started just after 7pm.

Some very brave animal-lovers ran into the burning building and managed to rescue at least 150 dogs and some 200 people gathered outside to help.

A 14-year-old schoolboy was arrested on suspicion of starting a fire and is in police custody.

Officials have confirmed today that 53 dogs have died in the fire.

Firefighters said 150 animals were saved. Each kennels has a capacity for up to 400 dogs.

Detective Inspector Neil Jones said at a press conference, “Last night a local neighbourhood officer was passing and saw a plume of smoke coming up from the dogs home and responded quickly, as did a vast number of the local community and the fire service.”

The Detective added, “The publics reaction immediately and overnight has been really, really overwhelming. We’re really, really grateful for the response that we’ve had.”

Adding, “I’m treating it as an arson investigation at the moment based on the extent of the fire and the initial outpouring from the community and some of the information we’ve been provided with so far.”

He said the dog center is made up of a series of buildings, one of which had been completely destroyed by the fire.

Station Commander Paul Duggan, of the Greater Manchester Fire Service, said, “A number of the local people had made an attempt to try and rescue the dogs because, obviously, they could hear them in some distress.”

“So what firefighters were met with was a fire in a fairly large building with some measure of security, so we had to break into that. You’ve also then got a number of dogs that were agitated and, obviously, when a dog’s in pain it may bite you, so you’ve got that risk. And, also, you’ve got a number of members of the public doing a very charitable thing, trying to help the dogs, but obviously it’s a risk to them.”

Duggan added, “All-in-all a fairly complex and complicated and, also, harrowing incident.”

Jason Dyer, 41, along with his nephew, Dean Rostock, 25, climbed over the fence into the dogs’ home at the height of the fire, kicking in kennel doors to rescue about 20 dogs.

A petition has started online calling for the 2 men to receive an award for their bravery.

Jason Dyer said, “We initially ran into the bit that was on fire but we couldn’t get those dogs out. We went to the other kennels and began kicking out the doors. We just wanted to get them out.”

“This place is part of our childhoods. We both have dogs and love dogs, of course we are going to run in there. We just wanted to make sure as many as possible would be okay.”

So many people arrived to help that they caused a big traffic jam.

The Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue service has asked members of the public to stay away.

“Some members of public turning up at the dogs home trying to help,” he tweeted. “Please stay away while crews deal with incident.”

A Greater Manchester Police spokesman said the force had been flooded with calls from animal-lovers offering homes to surviving dogs.

“We are having lots of offers of help from the public, which is really nice,” he said.

“At the moment we don’t know what help will be needed but it is great that so many people are coming forward.”
Great Dane eats 43 socks

Dog eats 43 socks!

A vet at the DoveLewis Emergency Animal Hospital in Portland, Oregon was surprised to find 43 socks in the stomach of a 3-year-old Great Dane after his family brought him in because he was vomiting and retching.

Initial abdominal x-rays showed a large quantity of material in the dog’s stomach, which required surgery to remove.

“It could be an anxiety thing,” said Dove Lewis surgeon Ashley Magee, saying that when dogs are left alone for long periods they often seek items of clothing that smell like their owners for comfort. “Dogs get nervous and it’s their natural instinct is to chew.”

The sock x-rays pictures were entered in the Veterinary Practice News’ annual They ate WHAT? radiography contest, and took second place and a $500 prize. The winnings will go to the Velvet Assistance Fund, which aids low-income families facing veterinary emergencies.

And the Great Dane? is doing fine after check-ups since the surgery, and was doing fine.
