Few of us could imagine what it’s like to be stabbed and left for dead. In the case of Hope – a shocking example of the depths of animal cruelty – those wounds were just the beginning. Hope’s torturers also bound her muzzle with electrical tape, her tongue left hanging helplessly in a position in which she could neither drink nor pant to cool off. So there she was, left to die in the brutal Texas heat in July by someone with unimaginable motives. But Hope is a survivor and was also fortunate to have good people find her and come to her rescue before it was too late. She’s since made a full recovery and has even been adopted into a forever home. Whoever perpetrated this heinous act, however, remains at large. The reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction stood at ,000 – until American Dog Rescue Foundation’s Arthur E. Benjamin became involved. “I decided to add an extra ,000 to the reward,” Arthur said. “It is my sincere hope that this added reward will be the incentive needed to finally bring a criminal like this to justice – our animals can’t truly be safe until that happens.” The additional ,000 reward is being offered through Friday, October 5, 2012. If you have any information about Hope’s case, please call the Parker County Sheriff at 817.594.3213 to report and qualify for the reward. Or, you can call American Dog Rescue at 888.262.4753 to anonymously report information. To see a local TV news story about Hope, please click below to view.

Arthur E. Benjamin and American Dog Rescue Foundations contributes to emergency animal rescue missions across North America Delray Beach, FL (June 25, 2012) – Arthur E. Benjamin and American Dog Rescue Foundations contributed to the rescue of 16 animals from dismal living conditions at a puppy mill located in the Arizona desert and salvaging 20 large, mixed-breed dogs from a hoarding situation in an apartment in Longueuil, a suburb of Montréal all in a matter of days. “Assisting ARC in this rescue is a no-brainer for me. I feel obligated to help the organization travel cross-country for these back-to-back rescue missions to ensure these animals find safe homes,” says Benjamin. “It is compelling to see how many lives this initiative has changed in a mere ten days.” The Canadian dogs will immediately be transported to the following placement partners: East Coast German Shepherd Rescue in Nova Scotia; Birch Haven Rescue & Rehabilitation Services, New Beginnings Pet Rescue, and Hopeful Hearts in Ontario; Jersey Shore Animal Center in New Jersey; and the Humane Society of Berks County in Pennsylvania. “ARC will have traveled more than 3,000 miles before these back-to-back rescues are complete. We were in Arizona when we received the call from Canada to help and we didn’t hesitate to jump on board,” said ARC President Scotlund Haisley. “These sweet dogs have been living in cramped quarters without individualized attention for far too long. Some have unaddressed medical conditions. Today they start their new lives and will immediately get the care they need and soon be loved family members.” On May 27, while investigating a separate cruelty report in Arizona, ARC responded to an immediate opportunity to rescue 15 dogs and one rabbit from a dilapidated Bullmastiff puppy mill located outside of Safford, AZ, about two hours northeast of Tucson. Acting quickly, Haisley and his team of volunteers gathered the necessary equipment and supplies and drove from Texas to Arizona to set up a temporary shelter to house the animals until they were transported to placement partners in Arizona, Texas, and Louisiana where they will soon be available for adoption.
