Sad News On Christmas Eve Morning 12/24/07 At Hooves & Paws Rescue, In Glenwood, IA.

We want to share with everyone a very sad event that happened Christmas Eve morning 2007. At about 5:30 am someone entered our gates at our rescue facility and beat one of our rescued St. Bernard’s with some type of blunt instrument in the head & eye. She was also kicked in the ribs. She has severe swelling in her head and we do not know yet the damage done to the eye. We must wait for the swelling to go down before we can do further testing. We had her to our vet within minutes of the attack. We do not know who did this or why they would do this to any animal. We are asking that if anyone has any information regarding this beating that they contact us at the rescue at 712-527-3721 or through our website at www.hoovespaws.org. You can also contact the Mills County Sheriff with any information regarding this crime.

If you’d like to hear a podcast about the dog, from todays “The Dog View,” here’s the link.
