when we moved into our new house we noticed that our neighbors had two big dogs out side we didn't think much of it until it got really hot this summer and the people didn't give the dogs water so every morning before my dad went to work he would fill up there bowls but they wernt being fed either so finally last month my mom called the SPCA to see if they could do any thing about these poor dogs well we thought they would never come until this morning I had just took Barkley out side when I saw 4 stat cars and a police car pull up behined the house next door they got out took pictures of the dogs and then had the owners put them in one of the cars and took them away!!!!!! I was sooooo happy the dogs have been looking so bad and the female didn't have a dog house or anything and when it rained she would have to stand in water up to her ancles all night it was really sad :( but now the have a chance to have a good life with a good family.

That's great news!!!! Good for you guys for helping the poor dogs. Those people should honestly be in jail, but at least the miserable dogs can have a new chance at life now! As punishment, the owners should be put outside in a fenced-in yard with no food and water or shelter for a few weeks. That might get their attention!

I hope a wonderful, loving family adopts those poor dogs. They deserve a good life for sure.
P.S. Good job Courtney and family.;)

Those dogs are very lucky to have neighbors like your family. I hope they go to good homes and have a better life.

Good for you and your family Courtney, for calling the SPCA on your neighbors! I hope those dogs find good homes soon ... but I guess even being at the SPCA is better than what they have been through at your neighbors.
good job courtney! maybe we can see the arrest on animal planet's animal precinct !!!

Hey Courtney, do the neighbors know who turned them in? ;-)

I wonder if the former owners will get a fine for cruelty to animals and I hope they won't get anymore animals and repeat this unfortuate deed.

they will get more animals I know this type of people and have lived next to them before they always get more because they fight them :( I don't think they know we turned them in as a matter of fact I don't think they know who we are they are to high on pot all of the time (I'm really, really not kidding)

Gosh, that's horrible! Well at least you know that you can count on the SPCA when/if they do get more animals.

Isn't dog-fighting illegal? I saw a show on TV (forgot the name of the show -- but it's real life TV, not drama) where the police went into this house because they suspected the people living of breeding and fighting dogs. Anyway, when they went to the basement of the house, they saw all kinds of evidence (tools they used to train the dogs, fighting arena full of blood, etc.). Needless to say, the dogs were all taken away and the people arrested.
Maybe you can tell the SPCA that your neighbors are participating in dog-fighting?

Stay vigilant Courtney....if they acquire more dogs to only abuse them, please continue to call the authorities.

I am glad the dogs perhaps have a chance. I have used the spca more for livestock and horses etc. My only criticism is they are a 10 - 14 day kill policy with the small animals. So over the years i have developed a network of alternatives to using them.
I hate dog and cock fighting also. It seems to be prevalent in different areas. Cockfighting is something that happens in my area, it is hard to stop. i cannot fathom how anyone could condone either 'event',

I am glad for your decision, it takes a brave heart to do what you did. We had a neighbor who keepd sheep that my dad called on. The only reason they had the poor things is so they could keep their property regestered as a farm and get a tax break. They had no shelter and no water, they were never shorn. Finally when it rained one went down with its back broken from the weight of its fleece. My dad called the humane society, and pretty soon the police and special investigator came. The animals were removed the same day. To this day the neighbors never knew it was us who called.
