the pocono record is the news again. first PATRICIA BRIGGS' pit bull went on a rampage killing a yorkie, injuring a GSD, as well as 3 adult men. and then it was reported that a pair of pit/boxers mixes have been savaging animals, 5 cats and a deer, probably many more. so i thought to myself, hey i think it is time to pay a little visit to the rescue site owned by the liar commonly known as MARIA McKENNA.
STOP has 9 dogs listed for adoption; one lab, 7 pits, i mean "terriers" and a HOUND MIX named Tessa.
More About Tessa
My name's Tessa. I'm a mutt and proud of it. I've been starved, pregnant and neglected my entire life. I was seized from my home by animal services just to have me and my six puppies put on death row. Some great people passed my photos around and a group of wonderful women got this amazing pilot to fly me to a rescue where I am eating and playing and being a loving, sweet friend. I don't have a mean bone in my body and am so thankful that my puppies now have a chance at a great life - something I never had. I too need a forever home where I can just be a loving furkid and be treated the way I deserve. I will be spayed and my cherry eye fixed before I go home with you. I am up to date on my vaccines and would really appreciate if you would give me a chance? Thank you and if you are not interested in me, please check out my friend Belle and her puppies....We were all saved the same day from Death Row.....Ciao! We want Tessa to be treated like a princess for the rest of her life. She is about 2-3 years old and needs to be someplace with individualized attention. We will consider adopting her to a family that has a maximum of one other dog, but any more would take away from the attention she so deserves. If you would like to adopt any of our pets, please go to http://www.savetheorphanedpets.org/FORMS/index.html and fill out an application.
Tessa is up-to-date with routine shots, house trained and spayed/neutered.
My Contact Info
okay, what's wrong with this picture?
first there is the deliberate misidentification of pit bulls, major pet peeve of mine. the overwhelming majority of SANE law abiding people do not want them. why? they are comfortable in their own skin and have nothing to prove to the world, they are TRUE animal lovers, and they are considerate of their neighbors.
second, wonderful women? is McKENNA referring to herself here? if she is, things are starting to make a little more sense. grandiosity is a symptom narcissistic personality disorder and bipolar disorder. just making a few mental notes
third, Tessa is described as not having a mean bone in her body, yet it states NO CATS NO DOGS. McKENNA also states they might make an exception and adopt out to a home with one dog. sounds like desperate double speak.
fourth, McKENNA states Tessa WILL BE spayed and then she states Tessa IS spayed.
fifth, "individualized attention" is code for i am a freaking handful, you won't have time for your job let alone another dog that i will shred if given 2 seconds and a charged battery!
sixth, i clicked on STOP's petfinder landing page and McKENNA recommends two other dog trainers. i thought she was the hot shot dog training expert? the next cesar milan?
finally, there is the issue of Hope, NJ. when i do a search for www.savetheorphanedpets.org in the whois, i get the following information:
McKENNA denies owning this organization. there is a scandal here i just know it and i suspect that it might have something to do with skirting around the pennsylvania non-profit laws. why else would she pretend that it is new jersey based and owned by another? i think the IRS needs to be alerted.
obtw, if Tesaa isn't your cup of tea, try Belle.
