…THE LAST BATTLE OF A STREET ANGEL

I FOUND THIS SHARED ON MY FACEBOOK WALL AND IT REALLY HIT MY HEART AND I NEEDED TO SHARE …IT IS A VERY WELL WRITTEN ARTICLE …BY MICHEAL WESLEY COLLINS… A MAN THAT HAS LEFT THIS WORLD …HAVING TAKEN HIS OWN LIFE TODAY , HIS WORDS ARE HAUNTING !!

R.I.P Michael Wesley

Collins, he took his own life today, this is what he wrote about homelessness at the end of November 2018.

“Homelessness is no joke. Taking a journey through being homeless and penniless has given me a new perspective on what hardships homeless people endure. Once you’re in it, it’s very, very difficult to escape. You run into chicken-egg problems again and again and it leads to an inevitable downward spiral. For example, you can’t get a job because you’re homeless and you’re homeless because you can’t get a job. Imagine having no car, being filthy and trying to show up to a job interview. It’s impossible, and you come into a hopeless downward spiral. The homeless shelters are awful places where they pack people in like sardines in bunk beds, and everyone there is in a dark state of hopelessness.

The social services in the USA are a joke and they don’t provide enough support to even live, let alone give you an opportunity to dig yourself out of a hopeless hole. Welfare amounts to almost nothing, not even enough to buy food, let alone establish an apartment or residence, and it’s quite difficult to get as well, and the system is unforgiving for missed appointments, which can happen quite easily when you don’t have a home or money for transportation. Again, it’s part of the vicious cycle.

Often there is a waiting list to even get into a homeless shelter. In San Diego for example, the wait list is 1 month, so you must sleep on the street for a month before being considered to sleep in a crowded room. To receive government-assisted housing, the wait list is 2 years! If you become homeless in the richest country in the world, you would wait 2 years for relief!

People are immensely cruel to the homeless as well, many of whom suffer from a psychiatric condition that they cannot help. Often families reject people with psychiatric conditions with the misunderstanding that they could be dangerous in some way, but most often they are sensitive souls who also often connect with higher spiritual energies. In old days, these people would be seen as prophets, medicine men, and spiritual leaders, but today they are derided as mentally ill and very often wind up homeless. They are most often victims of human cruelty and miscomprehension, rather than a threat.

I am still homeless, though I’m continuing to fight my way out, but thankfully I still have some generous friends and haven’t yet sunk so low that I cannot escape, though I remain on the precipice. I will say that I will kill myself before I fall into that level of despair, and I fight daily to keep myself from this fate, but often I must choose between difficult options. I have also endured an immense amount to trauma during this experience, and the idea of taking time for healing is ridiculous considering that I must navigate getting basic needs met like food and shelter with the onset of winter coming.

Please keep me and all other homeless in your prayers, but action is needed even more than prayer. If you see homeless, or know of someone on the brink of homelessness, please have compassion for them and give to them generously. You have no idea of the circumstances that led to their condition, as this world can be a cruel and unforgiving place.

I have a master’s degree, high intelligence, and a variety of high-value skills, but I still wound up homeless and if you understood the story and reasons why, it would make perfect sense, and you would also understand that I had no control of the events that led to this place. It was a complex series of events that caused it, and it can truly happen to anyone.

Have compassion for those who have fallen into this horrible state of despair.”

JUSTICE FOR #SUPERBERT

LATEST UPDATE : FROM MAC AND MOMMA

We really have no words. Something maybe gave way in his terribly damaged traumatic brain injury on the ride to the step down vet here in our hometown. He was suffering horribly and not coming out of it so we decided the best option for him was to give him peace. We deeply thank VSS and Skyview’s staff for such compassion and efforts for Bert. We really can not breathe and need some time to process this because our hearts are truly bleeding tonight. Sweet Bert please know the entire world tried so damn hard for you. #justiceforBert

Broken,
Mac and mama

UPDATE!!! 1/8/18, 12pm. We just got a super awesome call from Captain Morgan with the Mississippi County Sheriffs Department and he is very much on board with helping us find the attacker.

The wound progress of a dog who has been attacked by an axe. From rotted and left for dead to closed during surgery last night here it is in all its ugly glory. This dog by everyone’s experience should be DEAD but Bert is proving to be super pitbull strong. He was shot in the mouth weeks ago xrays show which has blown apart half of his jaw and was not repaired. Then Bert was recently hit with what everyone thinks is probably an axe square in his face and along his shoulder and left to rot and suffer. This is a horrifying crime that will eventually happen to humans by the coward that did this. We are angry. We feel we know who did this and are waiting for a call back from authorities who keep blowing the reporter of this obvious crime off. We will get big and ugly if not responded to in a timely manner. This happened in Mississippi County near Charleston Missouri. Bert absolutely deserves justice and we will fight for him to live and have his voice heard. His surgeon from yesterday said he closed both devastating wounds and is hopeful he won’t need any more surgeries but expects he will. He has a blow hole as a drain in his face and shoulder. I think Bert may be a magical Narwhal. BOL! This is a long expensive process and your donations are saving him. Thank you. We are all in for Bert. GO BERT GO!!!

Love,
MacAllInOnBert

FROM HELL TO HAPPINESS

Months ago, during a scheduled Gracie’s Guardians outreach trip we accidently (as we usually do) stumbled on a huge, horrible mess. A self-proclaimed German Sheperd breeder allowed us into his home because he did not want one of his dogs anymore. He said he had tried to work with her and just couldn’t do anything with her.

She fought with the other dogs constantly and therefor he had to chain her up. I’ve dealt with a good number of dogs that have come off of chains and many end up anxious and reactive.

They have a small area to call their own so they try to protect it and attempt to protect themselves because they don’t have the option of flight, only fight.

There were multiple Shepherds on the property living in squalor. Two on chains. Cookie the first dog we removed is the classic black and tan girl and the one that he wanted us to take. She was super shy and scared of other dogs. I can only imagine her food was stolen on a regular basis by the dogs that were able to run loose.

Her chain would become so tangled that she was unable to even get into the crappy shelter she was provided. Nora (I can’t remember her silly name at the time, Diamond or Cadillac or something else awful) the white girl was in the far back corner of the yard alone with a huge tub of muddy water that I can only imagine was never changed out. I was able to remove her with the help of animal control. Her chain also severed as a collar and was padlocked into place.

I keep wondering who unknowingly buys these dogs. Does he post them on Craigslist? In the news paper? Or maybe he just sells them word of mouth. I can’t imagine people who knew would buy them, or would they? People never fail to amaze me anymore. I wonder what he charges for his pure-bred German Shepherds? Last I heard there were 6 more puppies on the property. Before you ask, yes, animal control has been notified and is watching the situation but sadly our laws our lax and as long as people buy his dogs, he is going to find a way to breed and sell them while giving them the bare minimum. This is sadly not uncommon, I have seen it with my own eyes so many times. Please for the love of anything good that is left in this world, if you must buy a dog know who and where you are buying from.

Nora and Cookie are both looking for homes. Thank you Shad Mu-yet for plucking Nora outta that yard and Richmond Ruff House for taking her on and letting me foster while she looks for a home!

❤ Both ADORE people. Both are dog friendly and learning how to be dogs, to run and play, to sleep dry, to have clean water, and to be fed every single day. If interested in either, hit me up!

SO LTTLE TIME BUT ROCKY FINALLY FOUND PEOPLE TO LOVE HIM

#TEAM4THEBEEZ HAS FOLLOWED ROCKY’S STORY FROM THE ALARMING POSTS FROM SHELTER …TO JONNY PRESTON SAVING THIS PUP AND TRYING TO GIVE HIM HOPE AND LOVE AS HIS BODY AND SPIRIT WAS BROKEN… AND THE DECISION TO GET THE HELP FROM THE ANIMAL HOPE AND WELLNESS CENTER WITH MARC CHING …AND HE WAS LOVED TILL HIS LAST BREATH AND TO THINK HE COULD HAVE DIED ALONE ON A COLD SHELTER FLOOR ..ROCKY KNEW HE FOUND LOVE

FROM A REPOST BY JONNY PRESTON #Repost @animalhopeandwellness with @repostsaveapp

We put him to rest the other day. Brought him to emergency after he started seizing. While medical staff and doctors tried their best to stop them, they could not.
.

This picture, it is a depiction of Rocky’s last moment on Earth. Sad. Surreal. Poetic. But at the same time, what everyone in the world is searching for – our piece of love in that darkness.

We when took Rocky into hospice, we knew he could not be saved, and was on borrowed time. We did our best to show him that we cared. Kept him comfortable, and helped to support him in anyway we could.
.
He saw the beach for maybe the first time in his life. Became strong enough to chase and play with others at the park. Found friendship in the lives that surrounded him in foster. Loved to eat, and slept in a real bed at night.
.
When I first met him at emergency I wrote “he would die without a family.” In the end I was wrong – he found one.
.
She laid with him. Kissed his dying body as he faded into the dark. “I loved you as if you were my family. I am sorry I did not have more time with you, my son.”
.
While we could not save him. In the end I believe we did.

.
Missed. Wanted. And found… Rocky.
