Liga Portuguesa dos Direitos do Animal – Agradecimento Especial

AGRADECIMENTO ESPECIAL A LPDA/ Núcleo IZQC, Associação de Utilidade Pública sem fins lucrativos, agradece muito reconhecidamente o prestimoso contributo do Senhor Cônsul Honorário de Portugal na Florida, e CEO da Summit Nutritionals International, Inc. ®, Senhor Dr. Caesar de Paço que, muito recentemente nos ofertou a importância de 1.000,00€. Reiteramos este nosso agradecimento pois o senhor Cônsul, generosamente, quando soube de que o vendaval do dia 26 de Dezembro nos destruiu as vedações da quinta, derrubou vários eucaliptos e boxes acabadas de reconstruir, nos ajudou com mais 1.000,00€. Estas verbas são de extrema importância dado que a nossa Associação vive dos donativos e das quotas dos seus associados e por isso, não dispõe de fundos para emergências como esta e os animais correm perigo de vida. Este donativo de 2.000,00€ irá ser utilizado para ajudar à reconstrução dos danos causados no abrigo por estes recentes temporais. Uma vez mais os nossos agradecimentos.

Black River Falls PD’s New Canine Sniffing Through Town

The Black River Falls police department lost it’s police dog earlier this year under unfortunate circumstances, but a short time later were approached with the offer to be gifted another dog and the necessary training. Officer Jeremy James took the trip out to meet the new dog and participate in the training, once pooch and person were certified it was time to go to work in Black River Falls. James named his new companion Mattis and has been working the city streets for the past four months. Jessie Smith, one of the owners of Jessifanny, was the one who originally put in the application with Summit Nutritionals International based on their mutual partnership to help out the Black River Falls Police Department get a new police dog. Mattis came from a breeder over in Czechoslovakia that Jessifanny Canine Services, the facility that has helped train James and Mattis, works with and they worked with James to get a dog that matched what they wanted. “We wanted a social dog that’s able to find drugs. That was our main concern,” James said. In around two months, James was meeting his new partner and off to training in Iron Ridge, making the turnaround from Kilo brief, but James was excited to be getting a new partner. “It wasn’t weird to get a new dog, I’ve been around dogs my entire life,” James said. The training all took place in Iron Ridge with a few other departments who were also getting new canines, and after a month of training it was time to return to Black River Falls and hit the streets. “I saw a big old bull head and that caught my eye. I didn’t know much about shepherds at the time so he was the first dog I saw,” James said. He brought along a handful of toys and threw them around for Mattis to chase and chase he did, showing off his drive and ambition to his new partner. When he originally came over from Czechoslovakia, his name was Allen, but being a former Marine, James chose to change the name in honor of General James “Mad Dog” Mattis. “Canines are such a valuable asset for both the department and the community,” new Black River Falls police chief Kelly Bakken said. Bakken has always worked on a department with some canine units and said she was excited that Black River Falls had one and wants to make sure the proper training continues. In his short time with the department, Mattis has already been making himself known in the community as James has responded to over 50 calls in four months. Of those 50 calls, there’s been a hit on just about every call, which is good for his success rate, but it also shows how bad the drug problem is in the community. James said he was a bit worried at first that Mattis alerted on every call it seemed, but running him through some blank cars showed the training was working and Mattis was really finding the drugs. Mattis was trained as a passive alert dog meaning that when he finds the scent he’s looking for instead of barking or scratching Mattis will instead just sit or lay down. The biggest benefit for having Mattis is that simply by his presence alone, people will turn in drugs before getting him involved said James. “I remember three or four years ago when Detective Adam Olson was still working nights I would stop people and ask if they had anything in the car and they’d say no,” James said. “There...
