F.A.C.T. Shelter in a storm

This is something I know to be true. If you could have seen the way our dogs were treated - by our mother. She would get a puppy, fuss it and play with it, feed it better than she ever fed us. This would only last a week or so, then, she would begin kicking, starving and abusing it in the most horrific ways. Then it would be 'got rid of'. Then she'd get another one and the cycle would begin over again.
Isn't it a pity, though, when folks cann pull together to protect animals, yet children are still living lives of hell and dying all over the world.
