Bentley, the unwanted dog

Meet Bentley, the three-year-old dog that nobody wants.

When Bentley was just a pup, he was surrendered by his owner to a shelter in Nassau County in Long Island, N.Y.

Bentley was one of a litter of pups surrendered that day, so many years ago – his siblings found homes, but he never was adopted.

Today, the now adult dog, continues to wait, and hope that at some point, someone might want to call him their own.

Athena
Hempstead Animal Shelter

March 20, 2014

At twelve plus years of age, and mostly blind, Athena is no longer considered to be a “highly adoptable” dog – a fact which her prior owner discovered she attempted to secure a new home for the elderly dog.

Though Athena’s former guardian loved her beautiful senior dog, she was no longer able to care for her, and after attempts to find Athena a new home failed, that person reached out to the Hempstead Town Shelter in Wantagh, N.Y., to have the dog put down.

The shelter staff went to retrieve Athena and promised the dog’s owner, who is disabled and had fallen ill, that they would try to find a home for Athena before euthanasia was considered.

The shelter posted this statement on Thursday:

At three years of age, “Archie,” has spent half of his life impounded at the facility and the time has taken its toll.

Archie wants a friend – be it human or canine – he wants someone to spend his time with.

This handsome boy has been at the facility since July 2012 – an incredibly long period of time to be without a family and without one-on-one companionship.

Archie is described as friendly and playful – he loves belly rubs and does not mind being handled. Archie needs to be adopted – he needs a family and he needs to be loved.

Please take a moment to network Archie’s information and help him leave this facility…a year and a half is long enough.

Despite former-mayor Michael Bloomberg’s veto of a bill to have a city-wide animal abuse registry for New York, N.Y., the legislation has now been approved thanks to a unanimous vote by the New York City Council reported the Animal Legal Defense Fund.

Last Tuesday, the council-members voted to create an animal-abuse registry for all convicted animal abusers.

Convicted animal abusers will also be prohibited from owning or living with animals and if a convicted animal abuser fails to register, they could face misdemeanor charges and time behind bars.

The Animal Legal Defense Fund, which has been involved in the passing of this legislation since 2012, hopes that the registry will help to keep innocent animals out of the hands of convicted abusers.

Recently, Golda lost her home of six years after her owner surrendered her to the New York Animal Care and Control in Manhattan.

Aside from the obvious heartbreak of being left at the facility came certain danger – in fact, the other dog that was surrendered with Golda, at the same time, was killed before help came.

Fortunately, Golda’s tale does not end tragically.

Thanks to the Facebook page, Lilly the Hero Pit Bull, which was kind enough to share her story with their thousands of fans, help arrived.

One of the page fans, named Julie, was able to coordinate with the rescue agency, Amsterdog, and Golda’s life was spared.

Today, Golda has a new family and calls a wonderful, 95-acre horse farm in Pennsylvania “home.”

Networking saves lives – thanks to those who took the time to share Golda’s information, she is alive today and her future is bright.

Kids forced into prostitution for Super Bowl: FBI

U.S. Army helicopters fly over Metlife Stadium ahead of Super Bowl XLVIII between the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos on February 2, 2014, in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

The FBI rescued sixteen juveniles ranging in age from 13 to 17 in a two-week operation leading up to the NFL’s Super Bowl championship.

NEW YORK — Forty-five people were arrested and 16 juveniles rescued in a two-week crackdown on prostitution in the New York-New Jersey area leading up to last Sunday’s Super Bowl, Federal Bureau of Investigation officials said on Tuesday.

The bureau said some of those arrested claimed they traveled to the site because of the high-profile football game, which drew an estimated 400,000 visitors to the region. The minors rescued ranged in age from 13 to 17 and included high school students and children reported missing by their families, the FBI said.

Arrests were made and victims recovered in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, said FBI spokeswoman Barbara Woodruff.

The FBI, backed by state and local law enforcement agencies, had mounted a major crackdown on human trafficking and prostitution ahead of the February 2 championship game, with some 3,000 law enforcement agents and civilians trained to help spot people who might be the victims of human trafficking.

Christie’s Office Attacks Motives of Former Ally’s Lawyer’s Claims

Feb. 1, 2014 9:01 p.m. ET

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s administration has attacked the motives of a former ally whose attorney claims the GOP presidential hopeful knew of highly disruptive lane closures on a New York area bridge as they were going on, contrary to the governor’s previous statements.

Mr. Christie’s office challenged the claims of his former associate, David Wildstein, in a public statement on Saturday. “Bottom line—David Wildstein will do and say anything to save David Wildstein,” said the message, first reported by Politico and reviewed by The Wall Street Journal.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie arrived on stage Saturday during the Super Bowl Hand-Off Ceremony on Super Bowl Boulevard in Times Square in New York. Reuters

Mr. Wildstein’s attorney Alan Zegas in the letter released to the Port Authority and the media on Friday said “evidence exists…tying Mr. Christie to having knowledge” of the lane closures while they were still going on during the week beginning Sept. 9.

He didn’t identify the evidence to which he referred or say of what it consists. Mr. Zegas’s letter also said Mr. Wildstein could prove various statements made by the governor about Mr. Wildstein weren’t accurate.

Mr. Wildstein personally directed the lane closures at the George Washington Bridge from Sept. 9 to Sept. 13, causing traffic jams in Fort Lee, N.J. that lengthened commutes and delayed emergency vehicles.

The closures were seen by many people as political retribution against Fort Lee’s Democratic mayor, who didn’t endorse Mr. Christie’s re-election. The exact motive for the lane closures has yet to be proven.

Mr. Wildstein has since resigned as director of interstate capital projects at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which operates the bridge, which is one of the busiest in the world.
