INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS
Our friends at PETA have uncovered shocking evidence of cruelty at "Angel's Gate Animal Hospice" in Delhi, New York, a place where unfortunate guardians pay for their companion animals to "live out their days in peace, dignity and love." PETA has asked District Attorney Richard T. Northrup to investigate, prosecute, and rescue any animals who remain there.
According to the Times Union newspaper in Albany, New York, "...PETA claims its investigator who posed as a volunteer at the shelter for three weeks late last year found that the rehabilitation center failed to properly treat animals in deteriorating health, intentionally denied the creatures water and shelter and left carcasses of dead pets out among living for days."
Angel's Gate currently houses 185 cats, 103 dogs, 10 birds and three horses.
District Attorney Richard T. Northrup said his staff is reviewing the report.
The Times Union further cited the PETA complaint, detailing "Paraplegic dogs dragging themselves on the ground until they developed bruises when canine-fitted wheelchairs were readily available; pets covered for days in urine and feces; animals failing to receive prescribed medication and others given prescription medicine without a veterinarian's consent; animals left with only rancid meat to eat; pets with easily treatable medical conditions left uncared for; and carcasses left among living animals for days."
Thank you for everything you do for animals!
