So FINALY the sentencing of Christine Abrams case is tommorow, after rescheduling so many times I’m glad it’s coming to an end. And better news is she has supposedly chaning her plea from not guilty to Guilty or no contest.

If you havn’t heard of the Ella case or been following Voices For Ella

“Ella was a 1 year old white German shepherd from Cocoa, Florida.She was found dead in her crate in March of 2008, after her owner admittedly abandoned her. Christine Abrams was arrested in March for felony animal cruelty. When formal charges were filed, the State Attorney dropped the charges down to misdemeanor animal cruelty. Shortly after that, an additional misdemeanor count of unlawful confinement was added. The case is currently in pre-trial proceedings.

According to veterinary records, Ella’s leg was amputated in November 2007, which was only two months prior to when Ella was reportedly abandoned. The records indicate a leash became tightly wrapped around Ella’s back leg after she had been left alone and tethered overnight. By the time Abrams returned home one night, Ella’s leg was badly swollen. The vet provided two options: skin grafts costing up to $4,000 or amputation. Abrams elected amputation. Ella only had 3 legs when she died. ”

The terrible thing is that when she left ella in her crate there was a full bag of dog food right by the cage. As well as where she was staying her friend didn’t want the dog there and Christine was close distance away! How could someone say they care about an animal and treat it so? Anyone who looks to accept another living creature in their home needs to treat it as they would themselves or don’t add to your family! If she knew she wouldn’t be coming back she should have taken Ella to a rescue or no kill shelter, many animals with disabilites live happy with families… dogs that only have their back two legs, only front 2 or even the side 2, blind, etc…

There will be a rally starting at 7:45am at the Viera Courthouse located between The Avenues and Mantee Stadium. Hopfully justice will prevail for Ella and set a path for the right way to treat animals.


Hah! Micheal Vick is a funny one November 15, 2008

…In a recent article I just read Micheal Vick seriously thinks he’s going to play quarter back again once he gets out of jail!! He is a funny one. What team would seriously be that greedy plus risky to hire him on? To show kids and people out there that what he did gets a slap on the wrist and then oh OK you can play now, uh negative! That would be a terrible message to send.

What he did was dispicable and honestly he would not of confused this if he wasn’t caught. so to say sorry, pay the money to rehabilate the poor dogs whose life wasn’t tortured to death and spend less than 2 years in jail just doesn’t cut it. Only a person so weak and pityful would do what he has done to these dogs.

But it is nice to hear of all the stuff he is loosing due to everything that has happened. His yachts, farms, houses! Makes me get a nice warm feeling inside for the dogs that were unfortunate enough to have known Vick to know they are in loving homes and he is loosing everything. People like him need to have the crap scared out of them to stop these acts.

Honestly for football’s sake that they never deal with Vick again. I will truely be sadend, due to the facts so many kids look up to the players.

To me, Vick should have receive FAR FAR FAR more time in jail.

Isn’t it crazy how someone can kill someone and get life or the death sentence but so many of his dogs were tortured beyond belief pre-meditated and knowing the outcome-killed and straight killing on purpose and get little over a year in jail! Ridiculous!
